Rion Oidua makes his full Eyepatch debut with the wonderful Electronic Lover which comes backed up with two fantastic remixes. Rion has been a regular contributor to many releases under the Bonzai umbrella. His last outing was a remix on Mindgamers’ You Know Why and before that he has seen his work put out on Bonzai Progressive, Bonzai Basiks and Eyepatch Recordings with remixes for Tribal Warriors, Zolex and John Manning. We’re delighted to see his original works make the cut and hope to see a lot more in the future.
First up we have the Original Mix of Electronic Lover. The intro gets us moving with a cool punchy kick alongside a complex network of percussions as a sensual moaning vocal sets the mood. A deep gritty bass soon follows and gives off a very cool deep tech vibe. Deep chords rise up in the background and provide a smooth house groove to the sound as those sensual vocals continue. A true deep vibe that contains all the right ingredients for a dancefloor monster, a definite must have.
The Erotic Dub is a replica of the original mix but strips away the spoken vocal and leaves us with a sublime erotic fuelled tech house monster. Perfect fodder for those late night parties to get you right into the mood.
Tali Freaks is back on remix duty after his last outing Buridda which also featured Matteo Borghi was very well received. Here he sets out with a very cool intro as smooth chords sweep through alongside a simple percussion hit and cool vocals. The rhythms form up behind crispy hats and sharp claps as the outstanding bassline starts to fade in with the help of some erotic moaning. Big punchy kicks really set the track on its course as that superb bassline gets the groove into full on mode. Tight drum and percussion arrangements are expertly crafted to keep the feet moving. Many more layers continue to build as some funky one shot hits are introduced to create a brilliantly intricate pattern of sounds. A proper master class in house that you will not want to miss.
