TRACK : Michael Lovatt – Get High (Deeper Shades Recordings)

From the Liselotte EP

Deeper Shades of House always lives up to its namesake, its adamant fans demand it, whether it be the radio show, record label, or whatever other endeavor Lars Behrenroth, the man behind it all, takes on. Home to soulful, techy, dubby, groovy, and organic house sounds, Deeper Shades Recordings welcomes all of the above in Michael Lovatt for their latest release. Originally from Ireland, Lovatt is a house and techno producer living in Berlin. As a producer, he is deeply rooted in electronic music, developing alongside it in its burgeoning years and experimenting with it since he was a teenager, when he bought his first sampler. He’s since released on a slew of international labels and seen support from some of the industry’s finest.

“Get High” instantly sounds more energized, finding additional bounce from an undeniable drum groove and upping the tempo a significant amount from its slower counterpart. Deep pads and vocal atmospherics set the stage as the rest of the song develops. Tricky elements like a whisper that sounds like a high hat (or vice versa) play with the listener’s ears while a springy whistle provides another layer of excitement to what’s already a stand out dance floor drill.
