Portuguese producer Scrub aka Joal returns to Eyepatch with his first full release ‘Feed Me’ which features the fantastic vocals of Barbara Wahnon as well as a raft of quality remixes. Having already done the rounds on various compilations we felt it necessary to give this track another outing with top notch remixes.
First up we have the Original Mix which gets going with a smooth kick and percussion combi, setting up the groove beautifully in the process. Punchy basses come through adding a cool deep vibe to the sound, this is coupled with nice key work and a great vocal from Barbara. A real mover here as the sounds come together superbly and will force you to get that ass shakin’!
Legendary Belgian DJ and producer Eric Powa B delivers his Funk You Up Remix and he does it in style. Nice and big pounding kicks are the dominant force as subtle hats sit back. Huge funk appeal with the synth work and the groovy bass alongside a fantastic electro fuelled snare roll and percussion section. The vocal comes through brilliantly and is the perfect complement to these funky grooves. Another top notch performance from Eric and will no doubt be a big feature among many.
Portuguese artist Dave Nash debuts on Eyepatch with his stunning remix. Dave has seen his music perform well across many labels and he shows no signs of slowing up with cuts like this. Much more to come from this guy so keep an eye out. Here he takes the track to another level with his unique style. The intro boasts a superb chunky kick with contrasting crisp and sharp hats. An amazing bassline comes through and sets the track off on a smooth deep journey filled with a beautiful vocal and some very cool synth work that just sits so perfectly in the sound, not to be missed!
UK based DJ and producer Ed Lee hits the Eyepatch stable again with a sublime remix that takes us deep into house grooves with the help of a simply fantastic vocal performance. Classic kick and hat intro sets the scene up nicely and paves the way for the bass to slowly rise up from the depths. Big house chords become the dominant force in the track and give it a real smooth and groovy feel. Proper deep vibes here that will get attention from many quarters!
Rounding off this pack we have the increasingly popular Rion Oidua on remix duty. Rion has been doing the rounds on quite a few remixes with impressive results. Here he applies his skills to churn out a deep tech fuelled stomper of a remix. Cool percussive intro with the chunky kicks fading through before the rhythmic vibes get into full swing with the vocals standing out nicely. The bass makes a late showing on the break but absolutely makes up for it as it takes hold of the track brilliantly, resulting in a nice and tight ride which is a must for any DJ box!

UK based DJ and producer Ed Lee hits the Eyepatch stable again with another fine cut of quality house beats in the “Creation EP”. Ed has also seen stints on Howz Choonz, Green Martian and Bonzai Progressive which what a diverse producer he can be.
“Stars” is up first, a real cool and steady paced deep tech joint, crisp percs are contrasted with a deep bass and a hypnotic simple synth warms this track up throughout. On the break a heavily filtered vocal adds a new layer to the sound before heading straight back into this smooth groove.
Next up is “Love” which is a superb laidback funky house vibe, stand out percussions in a wonderful arrangement overlay a funky guitar and piano combi. Watch out for a truly iconic vocal sample that is so infectious you will not be able to sit still.
“Space” delivers more of the quality arrangements we have come to recognise from Ed. Again we get a laidback vibe with subtle notes and some cool muted FX, another retro vocal will keep the ear trained on this for sure.
“Moon” rounds up this EP with a relaxed ambient vibe, myriad of sweet melodies sweep by and you are easily lost in the sound, top stuff.

Getting together for a second time we have a duo that work very well indeed. Natalia has enjoyed releases on Sounds Of Juan and Belak Records. UK producer Ed Lee returns to Bonzai after a successful remix of Wonji’s “Lord I’m Still Standing”, he also has enjoyed releases on Sounds Of Juan, Stripped Digital and Hype Muzik. Here the duo come up with a truly sublime slice of prog house on this 2 tracker.
First up is Ed’s remix of “Magic Pod”, nice pound on the kicks and the hats are just the right amount of crisp, steadily racing toward the superb bassline that dominates throughout the rest of the track. The break has a surprisingly sweet melodic sequence with a lush pad and nice arps, the kick back takes us straight into more of this well worked groove.
“Quintette” has a more lighter feel, beautiful arps fade in and out, solid kicks and percs are joined by a surreal piano chord. On the break the tune turns gritty with a deep deep bass, settling in to a well paced hypnotic journey.
