If you're after deep but breezy deep house with a tech twist, Barcelona's Galaktika label should be on your radar. Here, they present more shuffling deepness from hometown hero Pablo Bolivar. The standout cut isn't the title track, pleasing as it is, but rather Jay Shepheard's faithfully sweaty rework. Adding live-sounding percussion and some neat vocal stabs, it turns the original into a breathless late night treat full of twittering synths and spooky effects. Also worth a listen is "Stand By", an ultra-deep builder that sounds like an audio imagining of the best deep sea diving trip you've never been on.
2015 marks the ninth birthday of Maurice Aymard's Barcelona-based Galaktika Records imprint, a label that's done much to increase Spain's standing in the global deep house scene. To celebrate, they've asked a bunch of their artists to re-edit some highlights from the label's first eight years. There's naturally plenty to admire, from Pablo Bolivar's sinewy, stretched-out edit of Gui Boratto's deep house/progressive house crossover "Rivington", and Sasse's deliciously loose and sun-kissed re-cut of Garnica's "Feartest", to the sparkling deep disco grooves and twinkling melodies of Garnica's scalpel rework of Aymard and Boratto's spacey "Home".
