Amsterdam based DJ and Producer EIGENWIJS provides an upfront and fearless House classic in the form of the Lucid Dreams EP for Layers Labels latest offering. Tech ridden, deep twisted House infused with sound of the 90s is served up in this standout 5 track EP. With two original tracks from EIGENWIJS the EP also features remixes from Producers and DJs Diego Krause and the combined talents of Francois Le Roy and Nanni. EIGENWIJS provides two fresh and original productions that form the basis of the release. The EPs title bearing track Lucid Dreams delivers a standout performance from start to finish. Taking us back to the House piano heyday of the 90s, the track flows like smoke across the dance floor taking little pause for breath. Standing out from the crowd the title track is a work of modern day excellence with a massive slice of 90s nostalgia. In contrast Spiritual Thing is a track driven along by a solid bass line. Simple, clean, fresh percussion is layered against holistic dialogue formulating in a deep soul filled House vibe. Diego provides the EP with two different takes on Spiritual Thing, with his own signature sound. The first Remix is a higher energy take on the track, characterised by the driven 4/4 kick and energising hats. While the Deeper Mix draws a much more tech enriched and deeper design utilising stereo to its full effect to keep the rhythm constantly shifting through the night. Francois Le Roy and Nannis take on EIGENWIJSs Lucid Dreams follows a different approach to the original the 90s esque track. Given a much more modern spin the original House piano is set back into the mix while the track is driven along with a sizzling snare and moody, melodic synths. Layers Labels latest release is a slice of House heaven. Delving deep into the vaults of deep house, EIGENWIJSs Lucid Dreams EP delivers with both finesse and style. Lucid Dreams EP is hot and fresh giving 5 tracks of pure pleasure. EIGENWIJS and his co-producers have delivered a serving of House at its finest, wetting the taste buds ready for the next release from this up and coming label.
