Our tenth release comes courtesy of Boy Next Door, a well-known Berlin producer, who recently started work under this new alias and managed to score points with a remix for Edu Imbernon & Los Suruba and the track ‘Heart Cut’ on Stil vor Talent. Next to a soft spot for the low-end and a sweeping groove, Boy Next Door’s productions distinguish themselves through colourful synth work that is sometimes retro-, sometimes future-oriented.
This is also the case on LMF010 ‘Feels like Heaven’. ‘Love You’ should appeal to the inner romantic: supported by a poppy deep house framework, an echoing vocal-loop glides spherically through the arrangement and slowly drives the dance floor into ecstasy without ever being obtrusive. ‘Feels like Heaven’ is more straightforward due to a driving kick and propelling claps. Meanwhile, a bright 80s synth melody takes the front seat and sheds some light into the dark of the club. Lastly, Boy Next Door reveals a previously unheard side as ‘Reality of Being’ artfully pairs a rave-y acid bass line with euphoric piano stabs. Heavenly!
