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. 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. Have a listen for yourself!

Expanding on different shades of the melody are Eighth Dimension 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.
