Silicone Soul Remix Grant Dell - In Your Mind on Giant Records

After the success of his first EP Giant Records lineup Grant Dell for second hot house EP which includes remixes from Scottish techno stalwarts Silicone Soul.

Dell, also known as Chicago Transit Authority, has been doing his do for 25 years now. As a DJ he is at home in clubs in Ibiza and Barcelona as well as around the rest of Europe, and is someone who always prefers to push his own brand of widely infused and influenced music than his own profile.

Once again here he comes up trumps with the emotive, glowing house cut ‘In Your Mind’. With a neat bassline and mid tempo house drums, subtle but effective synth smears add warmth and colour to the groove, whilst soul fuelled vocals add a real sense of personality. This is sure to get people grooving at any hour and comes with Grant’s own Space Echo remix. As the title suggests it’s a more dubby and reverb rich affair with cosmic signifiers and sci-fi vibes pervading from start to finish.

Silicone Soul need little introduction having been at the heart of real deep house and techno for decades on the Soma label. Their first remix is a Darkroom Dub - named after their own label - and is a seductively slo-mo and lazily unfolding house cut with languid synths that really suck you in. Their lush Hypnohouse Mix is then a twinkling, late night bit of melodically rich deep house with starry skies twinkling above sombre chords.

This is a patiently served but hugely alluring EP that is stuffed with plenty of tender feeling. One again then, both Grant and Giant have come up with the goods.
