Musikstil: Deep House
Artikelnummer: 1951313 / BODO006
Frits Wentink's Bobby Donny label returns with a new EP from Icelandic producer Felix Leifur. It's not often someone other than the boss releases on this
label so you know this new one is quality indeed.
Leifur—who also works as David & Hjalti and Davíð Sveinn Bjarnason — has two solid EPs to his name on Dirt Crew.
They show him to be a producer of succulent deep house and atmospheric prone beats. Across four cuts here he offers jazzy vibes, organic percussive
patterns and authentic styles filled with warmth and soul.
Opener 'Unidentified Blues' is a loose jumbled of hi hats and cymbals, Rhodes chords and shuffling drums that could well come from the studio of a certain Moodymann.
They are alive and enriched with real feeling from start to finish. 'Hampton' is another tender fusion of deep kick drums, tape echo and curious melodies all tied together by jostling groove that is beautifully incidental and unhurried. 'Contact' then brings more proper jazz drums to the table, with distant sax sounds and closely miced hits and spaces of cymbal all feeling loose and free as they suck you into their world. Last of all, 'Universal Rim' picks up the pace with a more rooted house groove, freeform percussion and wooden hits and trilling, echo drenched
melodies all making for an intoxicating cut.
