andy vaz feat. niko marks - don't lose your mind - delsinDSR-H4 - eu12''
1. Don't Lose Your Mind (Soul Vocal Mix)
2. Don't Lose Your Mind (House Dub Mix)
Next up in the Delsin house series is a man who's been perfecting it for years – Düsseldorf's Andy Vaz. The boss of Yore and Background Records, Vaz has released two full lengths and many EPs to date, always exploring a heartfelt brand of electronica that draws on house, techno, Detroit and Chicago in equal measure.
Here he serves up two versions of the same track - 'Don’t Lose Your Mind'. Both feature the sweet vocal stylings of Niko Marks and the first, the Soul Version, is all ditty, bouncy chords, floating, summery saxophone lines and warm, effusive synths.
The second House Dub mix is a little sharper - the claps cut through the soupy sonics like a knife and as a result the groove has a more urgent bite. Still stuffed with plenty of human loveliness, though, both tracks are surely set for many spins this summer given their classy feel good vibes.
