Comes in a house sleeve. This time your share of quality techno and house music is imported from Konotop (Ukraine, that is) born and rising star Vakula Karpenko. After well hailed releases on trusted imprints like Quintessentials, Uzuri and Firecracker, Vakula created this comprehensive 5-tracker ranging from moody deephouse to fierce acid and from melancholic house mixed with jazz to a vocal banger. This next Dekmantel releases is covering a wide spectrum of electronic music, so pay attention for some East-European brilliance. From all five tracks, this one is definitely the peak time killer. Here’s your 303 acid topped off with smooth an subtle deephouse sounds – Vakula’s trademark. Bringing the jazz in to house music - here’s Johnny. Elegant fusion of styles (Roy Ayers meets Detroit deephouse) which will do perfect in warm-up sets. Play this one as loud as you can, please. A strong combination of deep pounding bass lines, black vocals and 909 rim shots do the trick easily here. A track with two faces, but in the end we’ve got a brilliant organic piece of electronic music here. More than seven minutes of pure bliss. And back to the floor again. Vakula shows he knows his Detroit classics here. Beatdown madness and indeed, smooth as hell.
