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.
