DANIEL RAY – KEEPING ON (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

Daniel Ray notches up his fifth Eyepatch release with this superb two tracker entitled Keeping On. Last time out, Daniel furnished us with the deep and techy vibes of Mirrors which saw great support across the board. Keeping On gets into a deep groove right from the off with a groovelicious bass chord arrangement that fills the sound beautifully. Tight drums and cool crispy hats get the rhythm flowing nicely as the deep vibes continue to rise. A sense of melancholy prevails from the poignant strings on offer as the dirtier side of tech is just about suppressed within this solid groover, Top notch stuff that will not go unnoticed, a must have.

The Bright Side intros with a nice punchy kick and hat combi alongside soft pads and beautiful deep chords. Big stabby chords burst through and are joined by a reverberating bass that just hangs in the air, lingering on and on adding to the surreal vibe. Sweet melancholic keys contrast perfectly and cut through the lower frequencies to reveal a brighter sound. A super smooth ride into deep house grooves you will not want to miss out on.

DANIEL RAY – MIRRORS (PISTON RECORDINGS)

The hugely impressive Daniel Ray debuts on Piston with the brilliant two tracker, Mirrors. Daniel was a regular feature on Eyepatch Recordings where he dished out his brand of deep house goodness. October 2014 saw A Numbers Game perform well and on top of that he featured in several compilations from the Bonzai stable.

Mirrors sets out with a smooth chord structure that just oozes late night house vibes. Bright and crispy hats come through and join up with a cool drum arrangement as various other key elements are introduced. The keys go through various stages as they are twisted and contorted with expert precision. A cool plucky bassline keeps the low end groove flowing in this beautifully constructed slice of deep organic house.

Under intros with a very cool kick and hat combi that could have come straight off a high end drum kit. Various percussive elements begin to layer up as orchestral wind instruments lurk in the background. A big plucky, cello sounding bass dances along the groove while simple key structures fill the gaps. The track gives off a very live sounding vibe that will definitely get the floors moving with its big sounds.

DANIEL RAY – A NUMBERS GAME (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

Daniel returns to Eyepatch with this deep melancholic two tracker entitled A Numbers Game. His last outing was way back in March with Water Tunnel on Eyepatched Volume 4 and no doubt we will be in for a real treat yet again.

First up is the title track A Numbers Game which intros with some beautifully crafted deep bass synths that give off a true analogue vibe. Tight drum arrangements provide for a steady flowing rhythm that works perfectly with the melancholic nature of the tune. A much deeper almost growling bass seeps up from below and keeps the deep groove alive. The break descends into almost silence in parts which really draws you in forcing deep thoughts. Very nice arrangement that will be a hit among the deeper fraternity.

Mr Morning takes on a slightly brighter persona as beautifully plucked keys and a smooth muted kick make up the intro. Nice and crisp hats and claps soon follow striking up a steady rhythm and paving the way for a fantastic and powerful deep bass groove. A superb arrangement of bright and dark tones that blend together in perfect harmony, definitely one to check out.

EYEPATCHED – VOLUME 4 (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS) – VINYL RELEASE

The pursuit of the vinyl revolution continues as Bonzai stay true to their roots and deliver yet another fine slice of wax. Eyepatched Volume 4 follows on from its predecessors with four supreme cuts filled with all the delights of deep fuelled house.

The master of cool Dimitry Liss gets right into the action with his track ‘Gentle Elton’. Perfectly matched kicks and hats provide a solid base for the flowing rhythms as the bassline cuts through the sound beautifully with a groovy flavour. This is backed up with a soul shaking vocal that will get the toes tapping in no time.

The increasingly popular Yaroslav Lenzyak gives us two superb tracks starting with ‘Jupiter’, a wonderfully lush and surreal deep cut. Nice and simple hats alongside a minimal percussion arrangement that adds a lot of character. A low end droning bass shores up the groove while the big focus is on an awesome array of synth sounds that blend together superbly.

On the flip side Yaroslav treats us to an exclusive for this vinyl release with ‘UTZ’. Very cool and classic sounding drum intro eases beautifully into a smooth deep house vibe. The bassline packs a huge punch as it pulsates through the sound while a nice flowing groove is built. An epic endeavour with beautifully melodic twists that are not to be missed.

The impressive Daniel Ray give us his track ‘Water Tunnel’ with its gritty intro made up of cool percs and a thumpy kick. Raw sounding FX start to take over the sound as a stunning bassline builds the momentum. A wonderful mixture of deep piano chords, strings and guitars add a stunning dynamic and makes this a joy to listen to.

DANIEL RAY – MARLBORO STATION (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

Daniel makes a welcome return to Eyepatch with his four tracker ‘Marlboro Station’. His last outing ‘Lofty EP’ showcased his skills beautifully and now we are treated to more of this superb talent.

First up we have the title track ‘Marlboro Station’ which sets off with a very cool kick and percussion arrangement before a wonderful plucky bass takes over the sound. An array of metallic sounding FX adds a stark tech twist to the sound, this is contrasted by the occasional warm pad and synth note adding smooth textures, great stuff.

‘Brighthouse’ goes deeper with a smooth house vibe built in alongside elements of techno. The intro boasts a nice chunky kick and crispy hat combi, warm house keys soon filter through and blend well with the more techy edged FX that peek through. A well rounded deep bass makes a show and the track topped off with some very strong piano riffs, top quality track.

Up next is ‘Water Tunnel’ with a gritty intro made up of cool percs and a thumpy kick. Raw sounding FX start to take over the sound as a stunning bassline builds the momentum. Again we see some fine deep piano chords coming through with a contrasting strings and pads. A superb guitar also accompanies the piano and makes for a fantastic deep tech house ride, brilliant!

‘Fallen Star’ takes things deep with a stunning array of sounds on offer. Tight drums and percussions set the scene beautifully as a backdrop to some expertly crafted synth keys that dominate throughout. All these sounds are complimented with a deep rooted bass and a myriad of sweeping FX, quite an amazing sound with an almost laidback, chilled groove.
