After quite a few delays the latest vinyl release from EIGHT-TRACKS is now available at all fabulous 12″ vinyl shops and digital distribution points. This is the lush deep house burner: Gabriel Black â€“ Atmosphere 12″ .
Gabriel Black, resident of San Jose, creates the kind of groovy deep house that makes us think of moonlight raves and other sorts of nostalgic, dreamy things. Previously dropping spacious, dubby house-play on bay area labels Tarantic and Care, Black’s EIGHT-TRACKS debut is a gorgeous and floaty affair complete with warm key pads and an ear-tugging guitar riff. As pretty as this track can be it’s also tough on the dancefloor … some crafty percussion bits make sure of that. We knew this cut was special at first listen and are still thrilled by it to this day.
Expanding on different shades of the melody are our remixers Giom and Q-Burns Abstract Message. Giom hits us with a superstar effort that has been infecting many dancefloors across the globe on super-limited DJ test pressings. Giom is the man of the moment and this mix shows why: chunky, funky, and groovy in all the right places. It twists and blends Gabriel Black’s original into a peak-time builder. Q-Burns Abstract Message goes a bit in the other direction, opting for deep house with a capital ‘DEEP’. A driving, bass-heavy mix filled with psychedelic touches shows Q-BAM at his snazziest.
