Da Funk Presents | Deep Sessions 02
Compiled & Mixed by Da Funk
Release Number: SILKDS02
Release Date: September 9th, 2016
Da Funk's Deep Sessions 02 features a rich ambrosia of styles, techniques and sentiments. Opening on an uplifting, contemplative note, the continuous mix seamlessly layers a variety of influences including funk, soul, ambient and progressive. The end result is a rhythmic journey that never lingers too long in a single palette of sound, but always impresses with the deft juxtaposition of tracks that all gleam in their own right.
Highlights include an LTN remix of Dezza's "Meekix," 1979's "Sail," and Marsh's "Want Me Back," all which contribute to the diverse appeal of the mix and usher listeners through one of the many instances of nostalgia, sensuality and unencumbered joy that can be found within Deep Sessions 02.
Volume two is here.
Save the next dance for me!
Da Funk-The Prophecy
(Incl. Sumsuch & Finest Wear Remixes) out now!
A friend, featured remixer and supporter of Colour & Pitch since day one, we are delighted to welcome Da Funk back to our little label, this time with brand new original track ‘The Prophecy'. Boasting releases on Pacha Recordings and Anjunadeep as well as his own Acryl Music, Da Funk is just as prolific as he is talented. 'The Prophecy' is a rolling, deep and energetic slice of tech house aimed squarely at the dance-floor. Da Funk expertly builds up an atmospheric groove over the first three minutes before unleashing old-school acid tweaks, drum breaks and finally a wonderfully uplifting piano hook that's sure to raise the roof.
Label owner Sumsuch takes the helm for the first of two remixes, dirtying up Da Funk's chord stabs by putting them through a guitar amp whilst adding warm, deep bass and classic House drums for a late-night club workout. Sumsuch's trademark melodic approach is highly evident however, particularly in the smooth, chord-laden breakdown.
Ultra-talented London producer Finest Wear provides the second remix, which is typically intricate, floaty and deep. Showcasing that euphoric piano alongside teasing breakbeat snippets somehow lends this version the feel of a 90's rave classic, without any need for hi-vis jackets or Vick's Vapour Rub to enhance the experience.
