Greece is known to cultivate producers that create deep, soulful Progressive House, the ‘real’ kind of Progressive House, the timeless kind. Bobby Deep is one of these producers and our latest release form him on Suffused Music, Space Hunter, is a Progressive house lover’s dream. Included in the pack are powerful remakes of the original from Subandrio, Yuriy From Russia and Tabriz & Zuckermann.
It’s been more than 25 years since Bobby Deep has immersed himself completely in music. At a young age, he was collecting records, mixing in clubs and working at a radio station. Despite the small scene at the time, Bobby managed to get himself established with a growing fan base. As of late, Booby has been producing his own music as well as hosting his own radio show on Frisky Radio, Deep Minds. If there was one word to describe his work, he says it best, “Call it DEEP!”
The original mix of Space Hunter is no exception to the rule. Within the first few bars, you can feel the ever gradual, rising warmth and intensity of the track. Subtle and mesmerizing, the harmonic synths play a game of hide and seek with listeners, teasing them, drawing them in and releasing them with the melodic ebb and flow. The kick is soft, a compliment to the balmy sounds. Licks of delicate percussion, flirtatious as well.
Well-known Sri Lankan producer, Subandrio, takes things higher, on an upbeat note, welcomed in by a glimpse of the impending gritty bassline. His kick, intricately crafted into a perfect round sound, keeps his remix moving with controlled, techy highs. There’s an angelic hint of hope, laced throughout the track and the progression is perfectly timed for ultimate emotional impact.
As his name would suggest, Russian producer, Yuriy From Russia treats us to a groovy rendition of Space Hunter. The background ambience of his remix matched with its energetic mélange of foreground percussion is sure to make anyone get up and dance. Sunshine pours through the breakdown until the drop brings us back on our journey. The rolling bass keeps things fluid and the dreamy leads are like encouragement to keep moving.
Last but not least, no strangers to Suffused Music, Tabriz & Zuckermann deliver a deep, housier version of the original. Ethereal pads and a subtle sax lead blanket the techier kick and undulating bass. There’s a great intensity that builds as the track progresses and the breakdown brings you to a place where you just want release, and when it’s done stringing you as far as you can go playfully, it obliges, with style.
The entire Space Hunter pack has a version for any Progressive Lover’s discerning ear, to be played any time of night, making it a must-have in your library.
