Mehmet Akar – Seni Seviyorum (Bermudos)


Bermudos returns this week for back to back releases, last week saw the label with its first single of the year which featured Argentina’s Demian Moreno and two great remixes from Marc Moan and Erdi Irmak. This week sees one of Turkey’s finest Mehmet Akar making his debut on the label. Mehmet really rose in the electronic music underground when he was announced as one of the finalists in Sasha’s Burn Studios remix competition last year and recent productions for Manual and Outside The Box have only furthered that. His newest single foe Bermudos is entitled ‘Seni Seviyorum’  and it comes with remixes from Dale Middleton and Future Motions.

Mehmet’s original mix begins with some pleasure filled tones, lush vocals and a haunting atmosphere that sets a perfect backdrop for what’s to come. The vocals are really spectacular; rich in soul and texture which breathes so well against Mehmet’s more stripped down groove. The wavering atmospheres and subtle vocal pads just enhance the emotion even further. While the main break allows the guitary textures to shine and thus creating one of those great daydream interlude’s that’s filled with emotion. Fabulous stuff from Mehmet.

The first remix is provided by UK producer Dale Middleton who in just under a year has racked up a discography that includes releases on Outside The Box, Sound Avenue, Dopamine, Mirabilis and Lowbit. For his interpretation of ‘Seni Seviyorum’  Dale has put a marvellous club friendly spin on the track. The rumbling grooves and cleverly used vocal snips set a wicked vibe early. Striking tones then provide some deadly hooks along with a sequence of  heavily emotional chord changes which should more than deliver some goose bump moments to your dance floor. Dale’s remix has also just been featured by Hernan Cattaneo on his weekly Resident Delta FM radio show so you know it’s one not to miss.

The final remix comes from Future Motions who is making his first appearance on Bermudos. UK based Phil Joannides aka Future Motions has long been one of the most under rated and underappreciated producers in progressive house. His productions are always immaculately crafted and come with a maturity and dance floor sensibility that is really rare nowadays. Phil had a relatively quiet 2012 with just a few releases on Lowbit, Spherax and an inclusion on Proton’s highly influential Compiled & Mixed Series. He has certainly gotten 2013 off to a great start here as he’s delivered a wicked interpretation of ‘Seni Seviyorum’. Backed by a groove that’s filled with buzzing energy and driving drums it comes with nice momentum out of the gate. The techy drive is complemented with gorgeous vocal snips, grinding chord changes and haunting atmospheric accents that really hit the spot. Great stuff from Future Motions and a big release from Bermudos. Don’t miss it! Release Promo Hype Chart #5
