Transport Recordings proudly revisits “If I Change” from last year’s label debut by Israeli house music combo Asymmetric Soul and vocalist Meital De Razon. Asymmetric Soul first came together in 2001 from opposite parts of the world (Russia, USA, and Haiti) now making Tel Aviv the act’s home base. Asymmetric Soul creates motivating, uplifting, and inspiring house music with an emphasis on a soulful, almost ritualistic groove. As a live act their shows blend together electronica with rock, funk, Caribbean grooves, and powerful vocals. The act often collaborate with leading Israeli vocalists and songwriters, such as the contribution on “If I Change” from the fantastic Meital De Razon. These four tracks extend the soul power of the original track to new heights. Lonya, a member of Asymmetric Soul, and London-via-Poland producer Mikita together deliver a rousing piano-led mix that builds nicely and incorporates the vocal in a lovely fashion. Pure summer-time heat. Transport’s own DJ MFR is next in line with his own Summer Of Joy mix, adding a dose of latin-flavored percussion along with some affecting deep pads and string swells. When the staccato piano hits it’s like the dance floor has been instantly transported to a swanky pool party no matter the time or place. Italian producer Devid Morrison, coming off his well-received “Wonderland” single with DJ MFR, grabs right away with his mix, letting the vocal come to the fore as a nightclub-primed music bed pushes the groove. Lastly, fellow Israeli producer Yotam Anvi delivers a fine deep house interpretation that’s craftily sprinkled with dubby and techy elements. This latest package from Transport Recordings definitely brings the sunshine … dive in.
