We are particularly big fans of British Deep/Tech producer Dean Newton, otherwise known as Bluford Duck. We knew a new EP full of originals would be forthcoming soon on Sleazy Deep, but we were surprised how soon it was released! Bluford Duck’s ‘Down With Me’ includes three originals and a remix courtesy of Sugar Hill. ‘Down With Me’ is the clear standout and its opening vocal is just so incredibly smooth – a deep groover with soft pads and light percussion that opens the EP with a bang. ‘Visions’ is a perfect chill out tune with a wailing vocal and light percussion. ‘Night Away,’ first heard in Bluford Duck’s guestmix for Spirit Soul Records, features deep stabs with a chopped vocal loop and airy breakdowns. Sugar Hill’s remix tweaks the bassline and adds strings, making the production more uplifting. Always great to get more music from this guy!
Out now on Sleazy Deep.
