Da Funk-Gloomy Scene Review De:Bug

“Shake That Thing” ist schon mal eine Ansage. Der langsam immer tiefer rubbelnde Groove auch, aber dann werden die Hintergrundsamples immer intensiver und man hat fast das Gefühl, dass hier jemand einen Technotrack in einem Housegroove zu verstecken sucht.

Brüllende Basslines, schnittige Sequenzen, purer Workout. Der Pablo Fierro Dub macht das einiges smoother, verliert aber in den wohlklingenden Synths manchmal die Übersicht, und die beiden anderen Mixe braucht es nicht.

Da Funk-Gloomy Scene Review (TIWWD)

Craig Stewart-Make Me E.P. (incl. Da Funk Remix) Review

Craig Stewart is known for going on a pursuit with Johnny Montana in perfecting moonlight-inspired deep and soulful house music as heard in their productions and remixes like "Lunar Eyes", "Million to One", and "State of Mind". Make Me EP— Stewart's latest release on Acryl Music is quite different— it is minus Johnny Montana and the soulful vibe, but a plus to the technical and groovy sound of the deep! To celebrate this release, Alex V, Office Gossip, and Acryl Music head honcho, Da Funk also contribute their respective remixes to the package.

Craig Stewart-Make Me E.P. (incl. Da Funk Remix) out now!

UK deep house don Craig Stewart (DCS Trax, Universe Media, Soundmen On
Wax), delivers his debut on Acryl Music with the "Make Me E.P.
The title track is a classic deep house masterpiece. "Do For Love" comes
along reduced and techier but never misses up on the necessary portion of

Additionally to the originals, Acryl Music 041 offers 3 remixes: "Do For
Love" remixed by Alex V (Justified Cause, Night Drive, Sophisticate) focuses
on a groovy bass line and spherical pads, while the "Make Me" remix of
Office Gossip (Winding Road, Dark Energy, Urban Torque) pays tribute to
house music from back in the days with it's detroit-esque sounds.

The package is completed with a remix from label boss Da Funk, whose "Numb
Soul" interpretation of "Make Me" is sure fire deepness for the morning

Mit der "Make Me E.P." liefert der aus UK stammende Craig Stewart (Mn2s, Soundmen On Wax, Raunchy Rhythms Radio) sein erstes Release auf Acryl Music. Der Titeltrack "Make Me" ist ein klassisches Deep House-Meisterstück. Das zweite Original "Do For Love" geht reduzierter und techiger an die Sache, lässt die nötige Portion Deepness jedoch nie vermissen.

Zu den zwei Originalen gesellen sich bei Acryl Music 041 auch drei Remixe:
"Do For Love" im Mix von Alex V (Justified Cause, Night Drive, Sophisticate) setzt seinen Fokus auf eine groovende Bassline und sphärische Flächen, während der "Make Me"-Remix von Office Gossip (Winding Road, Dark Energy, Urban Torque) mit gehörig Hall und deepen Chords den detroitschen Houseklängen seine Aufwartung macht.

Abgeschlossen wird das Package durch einen Remix von Acryl's Labelboss Da Funk, dessen "Numb Soul" Remix von "Make Me" deep und drückend alles niederbrennt was sich ihm in den Weg stellt.

Release Date:
30.12.2010 (Beatport exclusive)
