MOTSA - Sleepless Nights (Original Mix)
After four well-received EPs from the likes of Lupo and Denis Yashin, Vienna's Schönbrunner Perlen label offers up a diverse Various Artists EP for its 5th release. A certain depth characterises the music as ever, with it ranging from buried below the surface and driving to more bass driven and bouncy, but always it is well executed and slick in its design.
Scottish producer and career experimentalist MOTSA goes first with 'Sleepless Nights' and it finds him in a lively yet late night mood. Pulsing rubbery kicks drive the track along as organic piano notes bring a sombre vibe above. The percussion is smooth and slick and proves there is plenty of life in deep house yet. Ken Hayakawa -- an Austrian who has released on labels like International Deejay Gigolo -- tackles the remix and turns the track into something more kinetic and restless. The grooves are wavy here, and howling distant voices add an air of unease. The second remix comes from German Thomas Stieler who opts for a quick paced house cut with grainy metal percussive sounds peeling off the kicks next to subtle, ever shape shifting chords. It's physical yet more than inviting.
Release date 18.7.2013
