Marvin Zeyss – Whatever


MZeyss.jpgLabel: Colourful RecordingsScore: 8/10

Burgeoning German talent Marvin Zeyss has been making all the right noises lately, with his captivating take on deep house garnering him much fanfare. Here, he crops up on the similarly auspicious Colourful Recordings courtesy of Whatever, a dubby record that gives us a canny insight into a Zeyss’ predominantly deep world. 

The title track sees the producer set his stall in no uncertain terms, with its many ethereal tones and fuzzy, jazzy textures combining expertly. Simple but assured, it kicks off matters with the sort of finesse we’ve come to expert from Herr Zeyss. ”Thinking of You” is more concerned with smart melodies, with the emphasis this time built around a sturdy loop and a generally warm, dexterous ethos. The last of the three originals is ”Solitary Life”, a record that appears to neatly encapsulate the melancholic moods that follow the life of a touring DJ. Interspersed with taut, skipping beats and a harmonious backbone, it glides at a pace that helps it fit neatly into Zeyss’ discography. Mario Aurelo closes off the package with the customary remixes, as he respectfully beefs up the latter with a series of astute synths and a weighty, underlying kick. A record that’s every bit as colourful as the label it finds favour on.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
