In 2010 he gave us Saxian on Tripomatic Records, this time as Joni S. Since then he has continued to appear on quality labels such as Bullbeat Recordings, Club 86 Recordings as well as appearances on compilations for Bonzai Progressive and Green Martian. Great to see him back and we’re sure this newest cut will have a big impact in many sets.

The title track Less Could Be More intros with a nice chunky kick drum and crispy hats with a simple vocal shot in tow. A cool plucky bass comes in and we see the tech house groove take shape. Tight drums make for a smooth flowing rhythm as the deep rooted bass takes hold and dominates the track beautifully.

All Around sets off with a sharp snare and clap combi as distant pads fade in before a cool snare roll takes us to the solid, pounding kick drums and crispy hats.

A real smooth chord arrangement keeps the groovy vibe moving and is complimented by equally cool vocal snippets. A definite must have track for any set.

JOHNNY DEEP (AKA YONATHAN DAHAN) – FEEL THE REALNESS EP (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

Johnny Deep returns to Eyepatch after a bit of a hiatus with the superb three tracker Feel The Realness EP. Just under a year ago was the last time we got a glimpse of this guys talents when he delivered the excellent Flowting Up which was very well received indeed, although we did get a couple of tracks on Tech House Toolbox 4 and My House Is Your House 11. A great way to kick off 2016, we hope to see much more from Johnny in the year ahead.

Feel The Real intros with a superb punchy kickdrum that is soon joined by rhythmic percussions that set the track up nicely for those dancing feet. A wonderfully subtle bassline takes the track deeper into the groove as we are teased with some lush house chords. The deep house groove is relentless as a solid wall of drums dominate the sound. On the break the bass rules alongside those superb chords while a brighter sound comes through adding cool contrasts to the sound. Top notch stuff that you will want in your collection no doubt.

The track hypnotizes with those deep offset basses and FX, on the break we are faced with some superb chords that give off a deep house vibe while the drums and bass ensure we stay firmly in the tech arena. A must have track for sure.

Until You Love Me is a wonderful trek into deep house with the drums and percussions being the dominant force throughout, with a little help from some extra cool vocals. A nice and solid arrangement ensues that will get the body moving to the deep grooves. The bassline meanders through the sound with ease and takes the groove deeper with a hint of funk thrown in. The vocals sit perfectly in the sound and add to the already superb house vibe. Cool piano chords ease in and accompany the vocals beautifully as well as that hypnotic bassline. On the break we get more from those chords as we get lost in the groove before the main track kicks back in for the duration. Excellent stuff that will be a welcome addition in any deeper set.

JOHNNY DEEP (AKA YONATHAN DAHAN) – FLOWTING UP (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

Johnny Deep returns to Eyepatch with the delicious four tracker, Flowting Up, and he enlists the talented Pierre Lusthilia on two of the tracks which is a real treat. It was back in mid 2014 that we last saw him with Down The Road and since then his tracks have been gracing many compilations and DJ sets. Johnny remains firmly rooted at the centre of the Israeli electronic music scene as he continues to dish out top quality cuts. As always we are delighted with his latest offering and we know you will be too.

First up we have the sultry smooth deep house grooves of Flowting Up. We get drawn right into those deep grooves from the off as soft strings are matched against a strong punchy kick drum that dominates the sound. Subtle percussions form up and provide an ample rhythm to the track as a penetrating pulsing bass hypnotizes the mind. A real sultry affair that will make you sway the night away.

RION OIDUA – ELECTRONIC LOVER (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

Rion Oidua makes his full Eyepatch debut with the wonderful Electronic Lover which comes backed up with two fantastic remixes. Rion has been a regular contributor to many releases under the Bonzai umbrella. His last outing was a remix on Mindgamers’ You Know Why and before that he has seen his work put out on Bonzai Progressive, Bonzai Basiks and Eyepatch Recordings with remixes for Tribal Warriors, Zolex and John Manning. We’re delighted to see his original works make the cut and hope to see a lot more in the future.

First up we have the Original Mix of Electronic Lover. The intro gets us moving with a cool punchy kick alongside a complex network of percussions as a sensual moaning vocal sets the mood. A deep gritty bass soon follows and gives off a very cool deep tech vibe. Deep chords rise up in the background and provide a smooth house groove to the sound as those sensual vocals continue. A true deep vibe that contains all the right ingredients for a dancefloor monster, a definite must have.

The Erotic Dub is a replica of the original mix but strips away the spoken vocal and leaves us with a sublime erotic fuelled tech house monster. Perfect fodder for those late night parties to get you right into the mood.

Tali Freaks is back on remix duty after his last outing Buridda which also featured Matteo Borghi was very well received. Here he sets out with a very cool intro as smooth chords sweep through alongside a simple percussion hit and cool vocals. The rhythms form up behind crispy hats and sharp claps as the outstanding bassline starts to fade in with the help of some erotic moaning. Big punchy kicks really set the track on its course as that superb bassline gets the groove into full on mode. Tight drum and percussion arrangements are expertly crafted to keep the feet moving. Many more layers continue to build as some funky one shot hits are introduced to create a brilliantly intricate pattern of sounds. A proper master class in house that you will not want to miss.

TALI FREAKS FEATURING MATTEO BORGHI – BURIDDA (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

Tali Freaks teams up with Matteo Borghi on Eyepatch with the wonderful Buridda which comes in Original, Dub and Instrumental flavours. Tali Freaks’ last outing Set The Sun garnered lots of support and we have no doubt this cut will follow suit.

The Original Mix takes deep techy house to new heights with wonderfully soulful licks throughout the sound. Big chunky kicks get the toes tapping as the shuffling percussions start to build. A fantastic bassline takes over and will definitely get your dancing feet moving with its upbeat patterns. The tight drum arrangements are expertly crafted with classy snare hits being most prominent. A massive feature here is the diverse vocals that really get the juices flowing. A mixture of soul style vocals are met with gritty sequences that blend so perfectly together. This track is a definite must with its catchy grooves and funky vibes, top notch stuff.

The Dub Mix strips out much of the brighter elements and leaves us with a relentless drive through deep techy house. That wonderful bassline just dances through the sound beautifully and will make you move with its funky grooves. In contrast to the deeper shades we get a subtle melodic flow on the break and beyond. A little bit of vocal is thrown in to mix things up making this a track that will turn a few heads for sure.

The Instrumental is just exactly that, the vocal is stripped out and leaves behind a cool driving track that would grace any set with style. Just like the original the track flows beautifully the only difference is the vocal is left out. Top notch stuff that would do well in any deep set.
