Copenhagen-based Frej Le Vin describes his sound as "deep and jacking", with US garage, hip-hop and G-funk influences. "The More I See You", his first single for Pole Position, demonstrates some of these stylistic inspirations, coming on like a sun-bright mix of deep house, nu-disco and soulful garage. With Ashibah's vocal to the fore, it's a pleasing listen. It's backed by a huge remix package featuring no less than six re-rubs. Of these, it's the deep garage shuffle of Marco Twellmann's two mixes that most impresses, though Frej's own 6am Sunday Mix, an exercise in twinkling two-step gorgeousness, is also lovely.
Sometimes, it's the simple things that bring us so much pleasure. In its original form, "Torben Jazzin" is deceptively simple, lacing delicious jazz keys and formidable sax from horn player Torben Westergaard over a swinging, organ-heavy deep house groove. It's a simple idea, beautifully executed. There's a swathe of remixes to tuck into, too, including a deliciously deep, midtempo rub from Ejeca, a hustlin' Piano Dub from Le Bin himself, and a pitched-up, boompty-goes-deep excursion from Matt McLarie and Viper Strike. Most tasty of all, though, is the disco-flecked, feelgood bumper from Arcadis, which impresses with its sunny facade.
