Being a big fan of Sascha Dive’s epic productions, I always get goosebumps when a new release of him keeps coming my way. For me he is one of only a very few persons out there who has deserved to call himself a Deep House producer. Often these days this genre is mixed up with poopy House music which at least for myself has nothing to do with the term developed by guys like Franck Roger, Kevin Yost, DJ Deep, Julius Papp or many more. However tiny outlet Yet Records continues to establish itself with another memorable EP, this time from Joey Daniel & Eder Alvarez.
Amsterdam based Joey Daniel is a real force on the scene. He runs his own 300MPH nights, plays mega festivals like Awakenings, and has cooked up Beatport hits on labels like Material, Celesta and Memoria. Here he links with similarly influential talent Eder Alvarez, a resident at Pacha Ibiza & El Patio, globe-trotting headliner and producer with support from the likes of Carl Cox and Richie Hawtin.
Their brilliant ‘Late Nights’ is an atmospheric house cut with a real sense of progression that builds towards a big peak. When it comes, the slippery drum breaks and icy percussion demand you move your body whilst sci-fi effects and synths add real charm to the groove.
Sascha Dive remixes the track into something a little darker and more driving for those cosy back rooms. The rumbling synths and crisp hits really suck you in and take you along for the ride. This mix again shows the versatility of this guy, he is definitely one to keep an eye on! Superb release all over!
