With previous releases on labels such as DISKO, Urban Torque, Seven Music and Sccucci Manucci, Autodeep continue to preach the good word of deep house on Peppermint Jam with this wonderfully slow-mo jam. Bajka's cat-like vocals purr over the beats with decadence while the groove tickles with equal measures of funk and drama. Remix-wise Ripperton's shivering pad-soaked remix is reminiscent of early Deep Dish material. Kruse & Nurnberg opt for more a classical US garage feel while Lorie spaces things out on a deep, woozy chuggy flex. Lovely stuff.
Italian club house producer Pirupa has had a crazy couple of years - getting played by the likes of Hawtin, Tong, Tenaglia, Dubfire, Zabiela and others and playing some of the biggest global hotspots with his brand of mainroom/funky. This new release on Rebirth shows what a talent he is - hooked up with Berlin-based vocalist Bajka, he creates a storming yet subtle tech-beauty, with rounded bass and softly-focused acoustic guitar textures shimmering in the background. Youandme drops a deep remix, while Gregorythyme gets into dubby disco territory on his version.
