Flow Vinyl stay close to home for their second release of 2013. Lisbon-based DJ and producer Pedro Aguiar is at the controls with ‘I Don’t Want It’, a sweetly melancholic track severed up with an extra helping of deep funk. He’s already made a strong name for himself with releases on labels like Baroque, Plastic City and Wolf Music (part of the Flow family.) Now it’s the turn of Flow Vinyl and something a little different showing the forward-thinking attitude of the label.
Pedro Aguiar is known for his wide range of musical styles, and ‘I Don’t Want It’ reflects the more song-based side of his sound. An irresistible rhythm, rolling bassline and catchy guitar sample provide the perfect backdrop for the emotional vocals. Always with one eye on the dancefloor, the track uses extra layers of percussion to build the pressure to superb effect.
The remix package is rather special too as King Unique assumes his new Ray Unico alias and pushes the funk even further. Dreamier than the original and with a nod towards disco, it’s an enchanting contribution from one of the best producers on the progressive house scene.
In contrast, Beaumont Stanford from Los Angeles gets the adrenalin pumping with an electro-style reworking fuelled by some killer acid lines. This one is surely destined for some big room action this summer. A very cool and varied collection of music perfectly executed.
