Review by Ian French

The production powerhouse Robery Babicz has finally decided to breathe some life into his famed Babiczstyle label. This is a hugely welcome return for this outlet of regular dance floor treats.

First out of the box we have “Duba” which is a great housey groove with a big subbed up bass that would not sound out of place in a Huxley type of groove. The track is filled with great melodies, dubby overtones, skippy breakbeat fills and a deep coolness that we have come to expect from Robert Babicz.

Next up we have “Heat and Love” which is a superb slab of grooving yet driven electronic fuelled house, with a hint of signature Babicz acid and and a tasty male vocal. This track will no doubt have dance floors smiling across Europe and the World as soon as it graces the speakers.

“Densemoments” is fresh, yet retro in many of its elements. Deep chords, analog bass, melodic layers and disco edged beats all combine beautifully to create a what could be described as timeless little gem.

First up on remix we have the superb and faultless Guy J. His version is a stripped back melodic number with no beats. He again manages to create the most beautiful of melodies that I am sure many of you will hear across many of the clubs in Ibiza this year. Superb ambient style beauty from the man Guy J which was of course featured on Guy J’s Balance CD in 2013. One I would highly recommend.

Klartraum are next to take on Duba, and its straight back to the dance floor we venture. Deep and restrained for the first half of the track, before the warmth shines through, as we are treated to key changing mood shifting chords of happiness. Lovely remix!

And to close up this superb release its Deetwo who also rework Duba. They add a floaty feeling as this housey groove unfolds, with dubbed out sound and sparkling keys brightening with a slight disco nod here and there.

Superb release by Robert on his Babiczstyle imprint. Again this is a label that will now be firmly on my watch list again (not that it ever really left) and I suggest you add it to yours if you like grooves, acid and beautiful twinkling melodies of the highest order.
