As the nights draw in over the Northern Hemisphere, Visceral 23 crackles and sparks in golden light as bonfire flames dance against dark skies, Tom Deibel opening up Part 1 for the excellent Emotional Content Recordings. Old favourites in Nick Stoynoff, Silinder and East Cafe continue to provide inspiration while Andre Sobota and Blood Groove and Kikis demonstrate their stature within with consistently fine work. Current Visceral favourites, Huminal, one again prove their production talent reworking Lank and it's good to see ADRO make a welcome return through mininome and Adrien M to close out Part 1. Ever-reliable Futureform opens Part 2 with a stunning remix from E-Spectro before the smooth sounds of Rise and Fall take on Blusoul. Derek Howell provides another moment of production genius with "Interstellar Homecoming" with Robert R. Hardy, Kiwamu and BCSA owner, Nicholas Van Orton, keeping the silky melodic flow. Deep house grooves take things forward a notch via Oniris and Steve Ward for Flow Vinyl, before one of Southern California's most talked about names debuts his Desert Hearts label and Mikey Lion discovers "Drum Formulas". Embliss finds bass aplenty through his rework of Excession's "Twilight" before a stunning moment sees Navid Mehr remix Namatjira to great effect to close out Part 2. 23 tracks across the Proton family roster find Visceral 23 full of elegant melody and deep house grooves.
