Moody, fragile and bluesy dance music this way comes. Brazilian duo Digitaria's Shine is helpless and brittle, like plastic toys left out in the sun too long. The vocals tell a story of helpless infatuation - less one of attraction, more sheer gravity. It's dark, introspective and a little morose but deliberately so. Shine captures that paralysing intensity of a sunrise cutting through the darkness after an all nighter and the itchy and infectious feeling of wanting someone when you don't want to.
Two excellent mixes come from Morgan Geist and wAFF. Geist gives it a gentle makeover, adding some staggered rhythms and soft electronic keys. Geist's mix continues his gradual move towards understated but refined house music as started on his Storm Queen project and it gives the original a little sophistication.
wAFF's mix is mechanical soul - the vocal more exposed against a melodic bed of electronic melodies, and it's just as elegant a take as Geist's, even if it takes a slightly different route.
The EP also comes with a second original track, Mystic Flow - another deep tech-house track aimed at a slightly darker period of the night. Elastic bass and Persian sounding vocal melodies creating a disorientating, progressive track. Overall it's a smart package with even smarter remixes.
