REVIEW: Matthias Vogt - Higher Love feat. Jonatan Bäckelie incl. Powel Remixes on Anjunadeep

Following his Anjunadeep debut last year with 'Seven Summits EP', Matthias Vogt's distinct brand of intricate and emotive electronica has continued to turn heads, warranting support from industry tastemakers including Pete Tong, John Digweed, Dixon and Dusky to name a few. Hot off the heels of his latest single 'Matters', Vogt returns with another electronic gem 'Higher Love' featuring the smooth vocals of Swedish soul singer Jonatan Bäckelie. The package also features two deep house reworks from talented All Day I Dream affiliate Powel, a pair of textured dance-floor minded moments.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The beloved DJ & producer Matthias Vogt is back on Anjunadeep with a relaxing smooth electronic jewel called Higher Love. As always Matthias has an ear to choose the finest singers for his songs and on this one Jonatan is absolutely mindblowing. His performance so soulful, deep, colourful, emotional, evocative and with certain 80's electro pop vintage feel to it. The track is the perfect track to create that special lovely atmosphere in your DJ set and bring the strangers closer to each other. The remixes included will definitely bring the track on the dancefloor. Powel first remix is a majestic chunky funky old school UK garage house number with nice piano chords, rave organ riffs, garage raw basslines, old school metallic drum programming and a lot of nice rhythm to keep you dancing. Powel's Lower Chords Remix is a deeper moodier haunting version with bubbly basslines, rolling drums, acid jazz infusions and classic deep house references. It's dub mix so if you don't feel the vocal this  version will let you float with the nice melodies! #PureSummer #PureGold Love It[/content]
