Everything that comes from John Daly's studio is deeply soulful and melodic - and this release is no exception. The title track recalls the most ethereal strands of Detroit techno, with sweet, wispy melodies and warm, textured chords underpinned by dubby beats and crisp drums. The London label has chosen its remixer wisely and French producer Marcelus provides an expertly weighted version. Retaining Daly's woozy, dreamy textures, he keeps the track on a deeper path than some of his own productions. Yet at the same time, a skipping, metallic rhythm slices through Daly's melodies to keep the focus squarely on the dance floor.
No frills, just the thrills. John Daly has always been a house music producer you can trust. This Solar Sailing single sees the Irish house icon deliver more of his synthy brilliance with three versions of the one track. First up is the Full Tide mix of "Solar Sailing", a production that makes you want to dance, but also contemplate the emotions your feelings thanks to the ethereal musicality of the production. The Deep Mix, as its title suggests, is a little dubbier and laid back, although equally rhythmic and danceable, while the Rhythm Section mix (also self explanatory) strips it back to just drums, a bassline and reverberating percussion.
