Portuguese deep vibes guru Jose Reis aka Accatone returns to Eyepatch with a fine slice of house goodness all wrapped up with some lush vocals and groovy keys. “You Know I Love Her” comes with a top class remix from none other than Dimitry Liss.
The original mix is one of those moments where you cannot help yourself but move to the groove, the rhythms are super smooth with cool, crisp hats and claps backed up with a nice subtle kick. Wonderful keys flow all over this track with an added measure of funk thrown in, but the big attraction is sure to be the vocals, real smooth with an almost jazz feeling, top stuff.
At the remix controls is a very busy man indeed, with productions and remixes coming thick and fast Dimitry Liss adds his magic touch to this track with his She Loves You Too Remix. Straight away we are drowning in deep house flavours with a brilliant kick and percussion arrangement, this fits perfectly with a stomping bassline. The great thing about this remix is it’s contrast to the original, while we have a male vocal on the original telling us how he loves someone, we have a female vocal here telling us how she loves him back, great concept and one that will for sure be a hit with many jocks and clubbers alike.

Sixth installment in the My House Is Your House series, this time with original tracks and remixes by Matan Caspi, Rogerio Martins, Piek, Efron, Accatone, Joal, Luis Bravo, GarcyNoise, Electric Bastards, Dimitry Liss, Daniele Kama, Ecco, Wonji, Kike Mayor, Charles Ramirez, Chanelle Pearl, Oraa, Brett Lawrence, Rob McCarthy and Crocy.
Fresh from the superb “From My Soul EP” Wonji returns with another huge soul funkin groover with a few awesome remixes.
The original mix of “Convince Me” is an amazing trek into the world of house with hints of tech and funk. Well structured sounds from the percs to the kicks and the brilliant guitars to a spoken vocal that takes control of the waves. Top class stuff that is sure to be a hit with its upbeat vibe.
Portugal’s own Accatone is first up with his Back In The Day Remix. Accatones unique style shines through bringing a deeper slide to the original. Tight arrangement on the percs and kicks with wonderful organs and synth stabs. There is a retro element here that comes to the fore with a brilliant trumpet riff, class!
Daniele Kama is up next with a more tribal feel, lots of bongos doing the rounds and the vocal takes control when in effect. A deep bassline commands throughout and on the break some classic samples are evident.
Popular remixer Jimmy Galle provides the final remix here and a stellar job it is. Straight to the floor intro with a huge rising effect kick us into a bouncing bassline, a sinister vocal comes through now and again and this gives a darker edge. On the break a melancholic melody appears and that massive riser comes in, kicking back in to a steady groove with some surreal sounds bringing this tune from the depths to a much more lighter feel, top stuff here.
