Deep house guru and all round funkster Victor is back at Eyepatch with this wonderful three tracker ‘Ready For Something Nu’. Victor always produces the goods in his work and judging by his last offering ‘Nightlife Unlimited’ we are in for another round of deep fuelled goodness.
The title track ‘Ready For Something Nu’ goes into a full on solid rhythmic flow right from the off. Well tweaked kicks sit over a nice display of percussions and a low end bass, smooth deep house keys weave a smooth pattern as sweet pads work the upper layers. Throughout the track groovy sounds pop up adding to the diversity on offer. Funky, groovy, deep house pleasure and a must for any box.
‘The Deep Goes On’ serves up another slice of Victor’s trademark deep sound. Classic kick and percussion intro leads us into a beautifully layered, lush array of synths that ebb and flow. Silky smooth pads are accompanied by rich keys giving that groovy feeling. The groove is beefed up by a cracking bass that just sits nicely within the sound and on the break the keys are let loose making this a sure fire hit at many parties.
Next we have ‘Tiefklang’ which has a simple kick intro that takes us to a super crispy hat before a sublime swaying pad takes over. This is shored up by a well balanced deep throbbing bass which adds a real sense of depth to the sound. Metallic sounding plucky notes come through and fit well in contrast to the deeper edge on the track. The break unleashes a superb cacophony pads before slamming back into a full on, hypnotic deep house ride, brilliant stuff!

Back with another round of deep house goodness on Eyepatch is Victor Maximiliano and his three tracker “Nightlife Unlimited”. Victor continues to provide top quality productions and remains a regular feature on Bonzai Basik Beats Radioshow. His last outing “Some Mellow Deep” gained a lot of recognition from all over which is a testament to his branch of deep grooves.
First up is the Deep Mix of “Nightlife Unlimited”, chunky kicks and subtle percussions provide a solid base to build on as cool swirly synth chords break through. A deep bass punches through and is a perfect companion for the many house chords on offer. Smooth and steady rhythms that will be a great addition in any set.
“Gimme Some” intros with a smooth and groovy synth before a chunky kick punches in. Very crisp and sharp hats level things out and provide for a flowing rhythmic vibe. Wonderfully crafted synths in all shapes and sizes add a funky element and very clever arranging keeps things on track, great stuff yet again from Victor.
“Midnight Circus” goes straight into house mode from the off with an awesome kick and synth pad combination. A plucky bass comes through and creates a very upbeat groove with the percussions doing a great job on the rhythms. The track breaks into a massive synth driven riff filled with all the delights of a full on club fuelled vibe, expertly arranged and a definite must have!

Deep house stalwart Victor returns to Eyepatch with his two track joint “Some Mellow Deep”. His last release “Deep House Is A Feeling” was well received from all quarters with support from all over. When he’s not producing stunning tracks Victor regularly features on Bonzai’s Basik Beats radioshow and always has a fine selection of top grooves on offer.
The title track on this release is one very classy slice of deep house, kicking off with a soft organ and a very sharp contrasting synth line, the bassline comes through early and hypnotises throughout. Tight drum and percussion arrangement provide a steady rhythm and groovy chords keep this track moving brilliantly. The FX come in just at the right time and some seriously expert filtering adds depth to this. Yet again we see pure quality from Victor, awesome stuff.
Now for something different, “Run For Life” is a track that blends many forms of house into something special. Stepping away from the usual deep house formula we get a classic offset bassline, the breakbeats bring back memories of lower tempo oldskool hardcore and the synth work is pure house driven which gives this sound a lot of character. A huge track that will stand up well in any club and keep those asses shaking.
“How Could I” intros with a dark vocal sample and super low end sub bass with deep housey chords, a cool solid kick ensues and a steady rhythm is born. The track builds nicely with some smooth keys and a multitude of FX which are expertly placed which adds character. An overall energetic vibe from this that will be a welcome addition in any deep set.
