Yousef returns to his own label with an artistic approach to the dance floor. Teaming up with Erica Thompson, a seasoned jazz singer & artist from LA, making his first ever step into the world of electronic music.
The track twists into thumping acid house with gnarly analogue drums chanting throughout, while the sultry spoken vocals lead to a dignified uplift after the break. A really accomplished collaboration, there is simply not much like it out there right now.
First up Scuba steps up to remix under his ESS guise, stripping the track back to groove, more Panorama bar than Berghain, pumping and very slick
The Waze & Odyssey remix sounds like being at a rocking block party, full on energy, almost French house style, a truly explosive version
Krankbrother take the track into another darker yet thunderous area, a pulsating almost trippy groove widens the spectrum of a masterful release.
