David Labeij – Ey Ey EP (incl Kasper remix)

April 9, 2010

Safari Electronique return with yet another label debut. This time its the turn of David Labeij, one of the key movers and shakers of the Amsterdam House scene. Todays EP features three stunning productions. Each exudes style, beauty and maturity. Opener ‘Eyey‘ should come with a side order of sun, sea and beautiful women, whereas ‘Sumby‘ with its tough rolling drive and poignant heavy keys, is very much a track to dropped indoors, on floor. The sound of ‘Emp‘ sits firmly between the two. Its solid, locked on groove works perfectly alongside its synth stabs and dreamy efx. To close the package we are treated to a reworking of ‘Eyey’ from Esperanza boss Kasper. Fresh from the success of his quite brilliant EP on Bass Culture, the Spaniard delivers a killer, intense groove monster. Yet again Safari Electronique and its boss Arnaud Le Texier deliver the goods for the dancefloor, and once again, reaffirm their position as one of the finest labels of today.
