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.
Next up we have I Luv You To The Bone with Pierre Lusthilia. The intro boasts a superb display of drum arrangement as various slapped drums pair up with a cool punchy kick as a probing bass eases its way through the sound. Classic house chord stabs lurk in the distance before fading through to become the lead element. The track gathers pace as a cool vocal comes in alongside various percussions. On the break those house chords make their presence felt with a hefty dose of awesome filters. Top notch stuff that will get the floors moving for sure.
Until You Love Me intros with a simple hat and vocal combi before being joined by a well rounded kick drum that gets the groove moving nicely. A lazy analog styled bass meanders through the sound as various other vocals are introduced. The rhythm picks up as the percussions build, creating a smooth, grooving deep house sound. Warm keys add a wonderful texture and are contrasted by a much sharper plucked sound later on. A definite late night mover here you will not want to miss.
Rounding off this great pack we have Com’on Move with Pierre Lusthilia. Cool crispy hats bring the track to life and sets the rhythm up nicely for the duration. Nice big chunky kicks join in as the bass finds its way through with its pulsing groove. Deep House flavours ooze out of the sound through the superb keys that work effortlessly alongside the bass. A big feature here is the varying vocals which adds a seamless flow to the rhythm and gives off a kind of oldskool garage vibe. Another superb cut from this duo.
Johnny Deep aka Yonathan Dahan delivers a stunning two tracker in his latest offering entitled ‘New Era EP’.
The title track ‘New Era’ gets us moving with a tight deep tech vibe right from the get go. A very strong kick is joined by some very cool percussions and huge industrialised FX. The track breaks down with a brilliant synth coming in over some spoken vocals before heading back to the main track, but this time a deep resonating bassline joins the party. Throughout the track the drum arrangements continue to evolve, particularly with the snares. Quirky little chords creep into the sound while the spoken vocal continues to add character, very cool stuff!
‘I Do’ is up next and intros with a big and powerful kick alongside some expertly crafted percussion and FX patterns. The kicks are transformed with the addition of a pounding bass hitting each of the kicks. Very intricate sequences from the percussions are a dominating feature and are joined by a round of vocal samples which really set the track off beautifully. On the break the synths begin to work and stay with the track for the duration creating a stunning groove which is not to be missed.
