Dear Deer Records have had an exceptional 2018 and that continues with a new EP from Steve Glass. Entitled Sirius, it features three tracks from the man himself plus remixes from Jobe, Kiko and DAF.
Opener and title track Sirius is a spine tingling tech house tune with majestic melodies rippling over the top of succulent drums. Heavenly vocals add to the spiritual nature of the tune and it's a real winner. Jobe reworks it subtly with something even more tender with glassy piano keys.
Leonis then has darker, more rumbling bass down low and a real sense of suspense that keeps you locked. The Kiko remix is more urgent and driving, with a late night sense of tension in the rubbery drums and broad synth strokes.
Gliese is a more uplifting track, with pads reaching up to the heavens and happy keys bringing an icy but happy feeling to the moody drums. Last of all DAF, gets more intense, with layer upon layer or rich melody, xylophone sounds and cosmic keys. It closes out another fantastic EP from a very consistent label.
