We like to see Johnny deliver the goods to the Eyepatch office because every time he does we are always blown away. Down The Road offers three superb cuts in true Johnny Deep style. His last outing New Era EP was very well received as no doubt this one will be also.
First up we have Down The Road with its glitchy intro coupled with a pulsing bass tone and slowly building percussions. A very cool kick gives the track a laid-back feel as an equally cool vocal sample delivers its message. The groove has a nice shuffle as it varies its signature effortlessly and keeps this track firmly in the deep tech spectrum. A subtle bass meanders through as the drum arrangement is constructed. The break takes us through a surreal world that combines many sounds and in particular a fairground type organ which is a nice little twist in the vibe, excellent stuff yet again!
I Do, Tekno Version, intros with a very cool vibe as a punchy kick is met with some superb percussion arrangements. Cool FX takes us to the next level as an offset bass is joined by snappy vocal samples and more of that fantastic drum section. The track really gets going when those synth stabs do their work as every ounce of tech is squeezed out of the sound, top notch stuff!
Rounding off this stunning pack we have Soulvation which is remixed by High M Vectro who is a wonderfully dynamic producer having turned his hands to many genres. The track intros with a brilliant kick and bass combo along with classic snares on the downbeat, very punchy with a somewhat upbeat vibe. Vocal samples sweep by and are joined by subtle FX here and there. The bass soon becomes hypnotic as the track shuffles along with a very cool mixture of synth stabs coming through. A fantastic track that will be a must for any set!
