/ Robbie Akbal, Veronika Fleyta-Sun Warrior EP part 1 incl. Sascha Dive and LUM remixes
Robbie Akbal is back with a brand new single on his own eponymously titled label. Produced alongside Veronika Fleyta from Russia, it comes with magical remixes from Sascha Dive and and LUM, and proves that the Barcelona based Mexican is a true deep house don.
Akbal and his label are both widely respected for their cultured house sounds and the artist himself has also released on Culprit, Get Physical and No 19 Music. Often collaborating with
stars like Aidan Lavelle and vocalists like Cari Golden, he has a rich sound that is emotive and effective on the floor.
The one original here is hot indeed with its loopy, rooted drums really sucking you into a nice deep groove. Loose, organic percussion flaps up top and whimsical chords drift like clouds
above. It makes for escapist listening and once the effortlessly blissful vocal comes in, the sensuousness is ramped up a notch further.
German house master and cultured Deep Vibes label boss Sascha Dive then provides two brilliant remixes. The first is his Oslo Summer version and is patient, stripped back and dubbed
out, with tin pot hits and silky smooth bass all hypnotising you as it unfolds. Lastly we have LUM who has recently released on Crosstown Rebels sublabel Rebellion and is remixing for Kompakt alongisde NU. Her he totally flips the script and
offers a perfectly atmospheric and soft focus remix full of gorgeous chords, gently turning drums and aqueous rhythms that sooth mind, body and soul.
This is a varied and vital package where label, artist and remixers all come up with the goods.
