Review: If deep house of the variety that's best enjoyed from a sofa-based and herbally enhanced perspective is your bag, then check for this long-player by Italy's Daniele Tomassini, AKA Feel Fly, immediately! From the midtempo throb of opener 'Il Teorama Del Delirio', via the spaced-out near-ambience of the title track, the warm-up friendly pulsations of 'Dromo Celeste' and the sheer luxuriance of 'Arpini', to the more urgent, blissed-out 'Endless Truth' and 'Brzone23', it's a masterclass in mellow, late-night listening, and impeccably programmed so as to provide the perfect soundtrack to your next voyage into inner space.
Review: In tandem with Feel Fly aka Daniele Tomassini's debut album, Internasjonal present the first single from his opus titled "Il Teorema Del Delirio" and it's a lo slung, neon-lit and and absolutely reflective gem. Head honcho Prins Thomas then delivers a rework (Versione Tenace Acido) in his idiosyncratic style that features some good old fashioned 303 squelch for added dancefloor dynamics. This will be Tomassini's third release on the Norwegian imprint, the man from Perugia also records under the alias Vaisa and released on Too Romantic and Roots Underground.
Weekend Lights (Axel Boman's Trans Migg Upp remix) - (13:20) 122 BPM
Review: It's been a long time between drinks for Japanese duo Traks Boys, whose last single dropped on Internasjonal way back in 2010. Happily, their return to action is something of a triumph. Turn your attention first to lead cut "Be With U", a thrillingly choppy and thrusting, off-kilter house cut where stabbing vocal samples, jumpy riffs and starry synth lines ride a bustling groove. Arguably even better, though, is "Weekend Lights", a gorgeously sunny, Balearic house excursion that sounds like the perfect accompaniment to a lingering Adriatic sunrise. Axel Boman's accompanying remix of the latter track, a meandering, loose and gently melodious affair that stretches to 13 minutes, is also superb.
