Kadija Kamara - "Eyes On You" (Giom instrumental mix) - (7:14) 120 BPM
Review: Suprematism compilation strand, which gathers together previously unheard cuts from both label regulars and newcomers. There's naturally plenty of authentic dancefloor heat within the ten tracks on show, with highlights including the gentle electrofunk influences and driving bottom end of Vincent's "Get Up", the "I Feel Love"-on-steroids throb of Giom and Andrea Rais's "Discotheque", the fluttering deep house melodies and psychedelic acid lines of Paul2Paul's "The Dallas Street" and the low-slung, warehouse-friendly bump of Matthew Anderson's "Kangaroo".
Review: Tale Cooper uses deep, groovy and melodic styles that he combines with a driving, soulful and intense sound. The Munich based producer and DJ knows is said to know "perfectly how to get people excited and lost in his melodies." After several releases on local imprints Love Harder Records and Blue Dye, he now shows up with some fresh tunes here on Supremus Records with the Air EP. It's a deep, funky and tribal affair on the smooth and trippy progressive house journey "Hawk" which features great production values. Second offering "Blue Moon" appears first in its original format as a dark journey track with haunting pads, a seriously humming bassline and tough rhythms but it's all about the remix by London's Giom who takes it down a deep and atmospheric route that's more emotive and soulful than the original.
Review: Russian emigre in New York City Paul2Paul (known to his Mum as Paul Losev) has been producing music for the better part of 15 years and you can certainly tell on this fine EP for London's Supremus Records, who have previously presented us works by Pete Dafeet and Giom. Starting out with the deep and emotive mood lighting of "The Traffic Lights" he then serves up the rather All Day I Dream-ish "Afternoon Naps" which you could easily imagine hearing on a sunny afternoon on a Brooklyn rooftop party. "Afternoon Naps (Lonely Boy Day Dreaming mix)" features some wonderful classical piano leading the track atop of a funky breakbeat until that razor sharp bassline comes bouncing in!
Review: Given the length of his career - eleven years and counting - we should all know what to expect from Pete Dafeet by now. Here, the Lost My Dog co-owner pops up on Supremus, delivering four more rock-solid, club-friendly deep house treats. His famous chunky grooves are evident throughout, from the piano-laden sweetness of opener "Polar Bear", to the retro-futurist goodness of "Fear", via the late night percussion onslaught that is "Jungle Fever". House of Disco and Dirt Crew alumnus Harry Wolfman puts his spin on "Fear", expertly alternating between dreamy, Balearic style builds and bongo-heavy, organ-laden deep house grooves.
Review: Calgary's Esette teams up with Vancouver's Piper Davis on vocals for the sweet and sexy pop inflected tech house of "The Rise" which gets a nice remix by London's Giom, taking it down dark progressive house territory; this is what we call dancefloor drama! Local producer Neighbour's version goes for more of a minimalistic deep house vibe which is perfect to set the mood in the early evening or at the afterhours alike; probably down at the notorious Gorgomish downtown!
Review: Deeligent Soul are the duo of Arnaud and Seb, formerly known as Souldust & Deeleegenz. These Brussels based producers are said to have been on the scene for around 14 years and you can sure tell from the sound of their latest offering on London's Supremus Records. "Undefined Soul" is the kind of sexy and slinky deep house for night people that will appeal to fans of music on Djembali or Dessous. The Giom remix sees him take the track on a slightly darker and much more atmospheric route with those emotive pads and more groove in the bassline. Finally "Makes Me Feel (Original Mix)" is probably the most upbeat offering, more minimal than the other two tracks, this one sure has some bump and bounce to it, alongside the usual sultriness.
Review: Seattle's Carlos Mendoza has been making deep, drowsy, tech-tinged house for some time, though releases have been occasional and sporadic at best. This is his first outing on Supremus, following solid EPs for Nocturnal and Sublevel. Opener "It Comes In Waves" is arguably the highlight, and features undulating chords, eyes-closed electronics and twinkling melodies stretching out over a chunky, tech-tinged rhythm track. Spettro delivers the obligatory remix, reaching for the dub delays and late night effects on a cut that drags Mendoza's ear-catching original further towards dark, late night territory. The banging, ghetto-house influenced hum of "Morrocoy" completes a solid package.
Review: Fledgling house deviant Giom has impressed us with his signature brand of deep, techy house in the past, but 2015 started off slowly for the producer. He now appears for the inaugural release of new label Supremus with a pair of smooth, laid-back house swellers. "The Message" is driving and swinging thanks to its electrifying percussion flex and crystalline synths, and "Night Strong" has a Detroit kinda vibe to its groove, a sliding percussion weakling away amid starry strings and jazzed-out bass tones.
