The image above is the cover for the EP entitled ‘Russian Girlfriends’ by the deep house/disco producer that is Perseus.
The Greek name Perseus means to ‘destroy, savage, ravage’, is this exactly what this guy is trying to do to the scene? At the moment I think he’s killing it! I’ve only been recently accustomed to his productions but I find myself stuck listening to my iPod with his track ‘Running back to you’ on repeat! This track samples Vannessa Williams’ 90’s hit ‘Running back to you’ and has truly become something beautiful! Check out ‘Perseus – Running back to you’ below.
What made me decide to write this post was the track he posted up on his soundcloud several hours ago for free download ‘Love in Zanzibar’. Again, he’s sampled another 90’s hit, this time from urban female legend Mary J Blige and her track ‘I Can Love You’. This guy in my opinion is bringing back oldskool vibes, transforming them and then producing absolute quality tracks. He really is living up to the meaning of his name in terms of how he’s moving through the scene! Check out ‘I Can Love You’ below and make sure you stalk through the rest of his soundcloud!
