The Feeling - (7:01) 128 BPM
Review: If you copped DJ Heure's two EPs on Distant Hawaii, you'll know that the Adelaide resident is a producer on the rise. Predictably, his first outing on Brooklyn-based Let's Play House is very impressive. Check, for example, the delay-laden synth stabs and sun-kissed piano parts of rolling, percussion-rich, deep disco-house opener "Take Dat Chance" and the sound space filling fusion of deep house dreaminess and techno tempo rhythmic hustle of closer "The Feeling". Elsewhere, he brilliantly smothers a jazzy, broken house groove with early '80s Herbie Hancock synths on "Eastbound", before offering up an impeccable slice of poignant two-step futurism on EP standout "Last One".

Review: Having emerged just over a year ago, Adelaide's Vlad Gavrilov - AKA DJ Heure - has yet to make a duff move. Deep house polished with class and driven by weighty production; every dispatch has been gold so far. Including this return to Distant Hawaii; "Metcha" makes itself known with strange percussive slurs and woozy chords while "Rue De Saintonge" and "I Want To Be There" strut and twinkly with an illustrious deep 4/4. Finally we hit "Deuce". The most startling cut of the set thanks to its stark fracturism and epic cascades of cosmicity. O la la.
