Luvplug – Deep house with a nice retro touch complete with swirling filters and funky organ stabs. The subtle strings holding up the background are the little corners that Ivan Dbri loves to paint in on his production.
Luvplug (Ed Nine Midway Remix) – The remix takes a garage approach to the original that is akin to the darker UK sounds of today but with a classic old school feel that is pure funkiness. The organ stabs and vocal snippets are pitched up while the background strings are brought to the foreground in quintessential Chicago style.
While You Sleep – The second original is a prime example of melodic house with elements of tech-house without being overtly so. The snare and hi-hats are pronounced and quite danceable.
While You Sleep (Ignacio Robles Remix) – There are faint elements of the deep, sultry South American techno style seeping out of the remix. While it leans more toward the deep house side of the record shop aisle, the light tech touches give it a pronounced edge that will get the club moving.
Rhea – This a beautiful piece of modern deep house with funky drum patterns and lush melodies. The track grabs hold with its soulfulness right away and never lets go,
Rhea (Antonio Caballero Remix) – The jazz comes out on the remix with a psychedelic combo of Junos and Rhodes synthesized sounds that accentuate the label owner's playful side. A fitting close to a stacked release.
