LMF continues its run with a collaboration between the mysterious new project Friends Of Ours and one of the true house legends, Robert Owens. While the UK-based trio present their first joined production under a fresh moniker, Owens has been a firm fixture in the scene ever since his classic maiden release ‘Bring Down The Walls’ on Trax Records in 1987. Here, on ‘Back 2 The Groove’, we’re being treated to contemporary deep house of the highest calibre.
While the original vocal mix marries Owens’ distinctively soulful voice with bright synth cords and bass-driven swing, Niko Schwind’s remix offers itself as a reduced house groover. Feft then focuses on UK bass elements and dub chords on his laid-back reinterpretation. Rounding things off, Yvan Genkins makes us sweat thanks to driving hi-hats and stuttering beats, whereas Rich Nxt opts for a chugging metallic rhythm and pitched down vocals. Lost in the groove!
