Artist: Dakin Auret
Remix: Floyd Lavine
Title: All That I Need
Label: Oh So Coy Recordings
Genre: Deep/Tech House
After a scorching release in 2011 with Oh So Coy Recordings; Durbanite Dakin Auret comes this time around with a sleazy slab of House music that teasingly sets about, recoils and counter-attacks again to maintain a dubby and techy House tempo.
All That I Need (Original mix) has an energetically tough drum pattern that adds plenty of force onto a rude and rather dark bouncing bass line; whilst eerie synths and twisted vocals play on top.
Although not much is contained in the EP, apart from one remix from Floyd Lavine one half of the Live Tech Rebelz. You’ll probably recognise the name having performed at some of London’s legendary venues and festivals and now has returned to South Africa.
His remix comes in a form of a deep ‘chuggy groover’ reminiscent of the old school and good-time classic Deep House vibe with a dirty vocal processing and quirky textures.
This is the sort of track you shouldn’t put on when you want a quiet, well-behaved night in. ‘All That I Need’ is worth checking out and quite a cool listen.
