17/05/2008 08:44 PM Archived in:Releases
This 3 track EP is a label debut for Swiss born dj, producer and Acryl label boss Da Funk.
Having released some of the deepest and smoothest house around for over a
decade viahis own label he has recently caught people's attention via superb
releases on Terry Lee Brown Jnr's Plastic City Label.
This is deephouse music at it's finest combining percussive beats, subtle licks and
funk injected smooth melodies. With a slight old school approach to drum programming,
this no fuss collection of deep house tracks slowly build with smooth chords, and extra
gentle synths making them perfect early evening numbers…
"Follow me", "Fast Forward" and "Walking on Clouds" have a sense of thoughtfulness
about them and are expertly produced with just the right amount of techy-ness.

Swiss deep house artists of the year me thinks ;)!!!"
BP Zulauf (Helvetica Recordingz, Dirty Basics)
nice filtery swooping theme, electro styled bassline, decent flowing groove to this
this ones a touch chunkier, but still retaining that deep house flow.
walking on clouds:
this ones a little more tough, and yet still quite liquidy and dreamy. more progressive in feel overall than the other two.
pick of the three for me would be walking on clouds."

Especially "Fast Forward" will appear definitely in my playlists.
