Random 30 2013: Jorge Takei - Aretha (Vocal Mix)

Jorge Takei (or JT) is a Cologne based producer whose self-released music has tended to slip by without much fanfare. Until May of this year, that is, when a sample-heavy, pulsating house track simply called ‘Aretha (Vocal Mix)’ dropped as a free download on the excellent XLR8R website.

Combining a pretty special Aretha Franklin vocal edit with Takei’s own unique brew of bpm-driven dancefloor goodness, ‘Aretha’ was a bright ray of sunshine for me during winter’s harshest months. I’m not sure whether this could legitimately be described as deep house, or whether it’s yet another variation on minimal techno, but whatever the hell it is, it’s hugely infectious.
