BJOERN SMALL – PANORAMA (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)
August 7th, 2013
Bjoern shows up on Eyepatch Recordings after his return to Bonzai on Basiks with the track “Mangue”. Here he delivers a stunning three tracker “Panorama” with all the qualities of true deep tech house.
The title track gets right into the action with lush deep house grooves, superbly tweaked kicks add a nice thump on the track while the percussions do their job to build a solid rhythm. Fantastic chords play throughout alongside some classy vocal samples. The break sends the track spiralling totally into the deep house spectrum with some outstanding pads that grip your soul and keep you locked into this top notch groove.
“Minigolf” intros with surreal pads and a cool, chunky kick before a funky bassline takes over and dominates the track. A cool piano adds contrast while brilliant vocal samples come at you from all sides. The track builds beautifully as the layers reveal many different sounds that combine perfectly creating a deep, sublime groove.
The Dub version takes a slightly darker theme, the pads are beefed up and it still retains a deep, hypnotic groove that would be a perfect addition on any deep set.
