Eluize – Symmetry
Label: Exotic RefreshmentRelease: Out Now
Eluize is a new talent who’s coming at us via Germany, and if her inaugural outing for Exotic Refreshment is anything to judge her on, then hers is a rich production talent that’s bulging with imagination and thought. The EP she serves up here is called Symmetry, and while she only delivers the title track, it’s still the standout moment.
Full of well-heeled and crafted and colorful motifs, the track glides at a lovely pace that’s half melodic, half punchy. Either way, it’s the sort of track that’ll sound perfect at any time of the day, regardless of when it drops. Hans Berg is a man who’s on fire right now, and his remix is a more techno-paced rework that’s strictly for the heads.
Cera Alba maintains much of the original’s depth and ominous strands, before Julian Ganzer brings it to a place that’s so epic it’s almost cinematic. Leading us towards the finish line is US house don, Derik Marin. His remix is the most sultry of the lot thanks to its elongated piano timbres and a reworking of the vocal that rounds it all off with a real zest. In all, this is a really exciting EP for fans of deep house in particular, with something for all moments of the night included.
