Darin Epsilon is takes us on another journey through is brilliant label Perspectives Digital as he this time introduce us al to the fantastic grooves coming from Dutch wizard Roger Linnemann who works his music through his Roger Martinez moniker. With that said, you all probably know Roger is a stellar figure on the scene, with a long string of releases through some of the best imprints in the genre, such as Kasey Taylors legandary Vapour Recordings, Guy J’s Lost & Found, Hernan Cattaneo’s Sudbeat as well as the Münich/Germany based Plattenbank (managed by Guy Mantzur and his team) to mention some of the stellar labels he’s been working his music through.
Roger goes a long time back with Darin’s label, and this is just a return to the label for him, as we have seen him deliver some fantastic music though the label.
This time, the lead production and also the the title track of the EP, “That Vibe” brings us on to a deep progressive journey, filled with deep textures and grooves that will hook you from start to finish. There is great tension in it, building up a firce moody journey, so made for the club floors.
On remix duty for this gem, we see two true pioneers on the scene, that worked their music for decades team up for this one. We of course talk about Spaniard Dimas Carbajo aka D-Formation and Eric Peyronel that works his music through his Rick Pier O’Neil guise. They together build a more dirty and rough version of “The Vibe” that will be taken for all you big fans of great grooves, dark textures and cool melodic additions that is given through the production. It is as good as ever from these two leading names in the business.
On the flip-side, we see another original from Mr. Martinez as he also have a production baptized as “Santoor” in this solid package. This is a more laid back take from him, building on some repetitive hooks, dreamy progressions were a lot of layers is working in and out of the production. It’s a truly majestic production and definitely our favorite in this package. Let’s see and hear what you thought are.
It is truly nice to see some more high profile music coming through the Perspectives Digital label, as they all, involved on the release, is some great guys leading the way for many in the genre.
