DIMITRY LISS – GENTLE ELTON (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)
February 5th, 2014
The ever impressive Dimitry Liss returns to Eyepatch after stints on Bonzai Basiks and Piston Recordings. Here we have Dimitry’s sublime brand of deep house in the shape of his two tracker ‘Gentle Elton’.
The title track gets us moving with a big chunky kick that packs a huge punch indeed. Very crisp open hats are the perfect match to the kicks and provide a solid base for the flowing rhythms. The bassline cuts through the sound beautifully with a groovy flavour, in the background strings sweep along while upfront some very well tweaked synths make their mark. The vocals stand out well here and definitely makes for a floor shaker!
‘Jelly Jelly’ is up next and does not disappoint. Smooth intro with kicks and percs as a vocal filters through with expert manipulation. A super deep groovy bassline pops up soon after and the vocal becomes more prominent. Proper deep house grooves are all over this track with the funk factor coming through later on, top notch stuff yet again from Dimitry.
