Stergios – Eyes On The South (238W Inc.)

The latest release on 238W Inc. welcomes Stergios to the label for his debut single.


The Greek producer has been a staple of the Movement Recordings and Just Movement artist rosters all throughout 2015. His warm, groovy sound has become a favourite in the progressive underground and he’ll only build on that momentum with his latest single entitled ‘Eyes On The South’. 

The release begins with the original mix and die-hard Stergios fans are sure to love it as it comes with many of his strong production hallmarks. Following a DJ friendly intro of tough beats and smooth percussive waves a warm hypnotic motif gets introduced. It’s wavering beauty is deeply mesmerizing which a playful hook and shaker complement perfectly. Long gaseous sweeps continue the forward climb and ultimately lead the track into a stripped down second act where the rhythmic elements get a chance to really shine. Beautiful work from Stergios.

The first interpretation of ‘Eyes On The South’ is provided by Ewan Rill who is making his third appearance on 238W Inc. The Russian producer first appeared on the US imprint with a remix of ‘Twinkle’ by Kissoff in March of this year. Ewan then went on to mix the label’s highly popular ‘Linear Structures’ series which saw its release in July. Here Ewan returns to work his magic on ‘Eyes On The South’ which follows a very busy summer season for the Russian producer. Always a consummate remixer Ewan has taken Stergios’ warm, fluid original and lightened it up even further for what results in a perfect tune for the morning dance floors out there. Like most Ewan Rill remixes there’s a strong club sensibility with a wealth of smooth transitions, all backed by an energetic groove and positive vibes. Great remix from Ewan.

The second and final interpretation of ‘Eyes On The South’ is provided by Lorchee who is making his first appearance on 238W Inc. Dawid Lorek aka Lorchee hails from Poland and introduced the production moniker in 2013 with a release on Electronic Tree. David followed that up with a string of originals and remixes for the Polish label over the next two years along with a single for Stellar Fountain Deep, which is his most recent work, released in June of this year. For his ‘Eyes On The South’ interpretation Lorchee has reinvented the wonderful energy from the original but with a much dubbier approach, The main elements from the original are much more indistinct while the addition of a growling acid line adds some nice character, particularity in the second half. Cool remix from Lorchee which rounds out another great release on 238W Inc. Don’t miss it.
