Title: Lovesong
Label: Plastik Park
Format: 12\"/Digital
Released: February 2007


Review:

Kosmas Epsilon is one of the hotter names around at the moment, and alongside names like Dousk, Phatjak and G.Pal he is one of the forerunners in the highly successful wave of Greek progressive house producers causing quite a stir on the last couple of years. His releases ranges from the deep and melodic to more trendy electro house-ish and even some quite minimal, and he has appeared on labels like Audio Therapy, EQ, Pure Substance, Platipus and even 2 appearances on highly acclaimed Global Underground mixes by superstars Sasha and Nick Warren.

\"Lovesong\" is the newest release from the Greek producer, this time on the German label Plastik Park records, run by D-Nox.


A. LoveSong (Vox Mix) [128 BPM]
First is the vocal mix, and it\'s a real beauty. A gentle, yet energetic bassline is the foundation, with slight acid-sounds and a lovely, yet unrecognisable vocoded spoken word voicesample made by Kosmas Epsilon himself - apparently in Greek. This is definitely the version made for the big room sets, and it left a warm and fuzzy feeling inside me - super track.

B. LoveSong (Dub Mix) [128 BPM]
The Dub Mix is naturally stripped for most of the vocals from the original mix, and even though I\'m usually not into the heavily vocal stuff, here the lack of the vocals results in a way less appealing tune. Also, the bassline is more minimal and laidback, which makes it more suitable for the more tech-oriented sets in the smaller clubs. Ok tune played at the right time, but no match to the vocal version.


Bottom line:

The vocal mix is a real winner of a tune - big and heart-warming progressive house that surely lives up to the \"Lovesong\" title. The techier, more laidback Dub mix is not nearly as good, but is still quite good on its own. All in all another fine release from Plastik Park.


Favourites:

1(!!)


Verdict:


7/10
