Italy’s Luca Bacchetti turns in a remix here that deceptively lays a groundwork of sexy tribal house, before proceeding to redefine the term ‘epic’ with the twists and turns of a 10-minute journey that travels to the most euphoric moments of a progressive house party. A gorgeous melodic flourish sweeps the tune into an early crescendo, and it’s used by Bacchetti as a recurring musical motif, wafting away while he takes things deep, before it returns for an epic hands-in-the-air finale. A club record that’s grand, gentle and deep, all at the same time.
‘Mood’ has long been the key adjective for Fisher’s vocals. Once they stood just the wrong side of more moody and introspective, but latterly they’ve crossed that invisible, yet critical margin towards ‘involving’ and ‘intoxicating’. Set against Richard’s stylistically diverse trance backdrop, by the time Fisher hits the chorus, this becomes (I’m gonna say it!) ‘uplifting’. And that’s a sea change to cheer for.
Icy cool electronics from this shadowy presence, Idioma, making a second contribution to Tim Paris’ excellent Marketing Music label. Appearing way back in 2009 with the delicate ‘Landscapes’, Idioma’s return maps out more seductive, woozy synth lines for remixers Tim Paris and Freude Am Tanzen’s Ruede Hagelstein to remix — both working brilliantly odd new-wave and slick proto-techno styles.
The key to success is to always move forward, something that this duo clearly know. Improving with every release Gerra & Stone have reached a new level with this EP. 'Too Deep' can do little to explain the intensity of this monstrous bass. The drum pattern has just enough life to lift itself to the drone of receptiveness which has become a staple go-to for the minimal/tech end of the spectrum. A standout track.
