After utilising the talents of Subb-An, Death On The Balcony & Le Loup in 2012, Jef K’s Silver Network signal the end of the year with a slick deep house affair from hot new talent Arash featuring big remixes from Shade and Jordan Peak.

A German with Persian origins, Arash Behinzad has been honing his production skills since 2011, after discovering the classic house sounds of the 90’s on the Frankfurt electronic music scene.

Title track ‘Distant Voices’ commences with a strong percussive groove characterised by a tribal conga line and complemented by sharp synth stabs. Additional spacey elements are gradually added as the track evolves and the track really begins to take shape with the introduction of an inspirational vocal, which paves the way for several breakdowns to take energy levels to new heights.

Parisian veteran Shade steps up for remix duties and certainly brings a bit of the French house flavour with his interpretation. A strong kick/clap combo and a big booty bass line straight out of the Derrick Carter handbook ensure this one goes hard all night long.

Up next is ‘Mind Game’ which opens with real direction and purpose. Shifting percussion is layered expertly and once again the vast array of musical elements are expertly arranged only this time even deeper and more heavily FX’d.

New kid on the scene Jordan Peak steps up this time as remixer and shows exactly why he is riding such an incredible wave of hype at the moment. This is shifting house at its finest, with skipping highs, jackin’ lows and pitched down vocals making up what is sure to be a huge dancefloor hit in the coming months.

Last but not least there is a digital only offering entitled ‘Intimacy Mood’ which captivates the soul and the senses with its lazy sub bass, intricate woodblock melodies and infectious horn section.
