Remixes come from Donluiz Musicue, Deep Waters and label boss Alvaro Hylander

Belgian producer Frederick Alonso, who has previously appeared on Conya, House Cookin', Lisztomania and other respected labels, comes to Danish label DeepWit Recordings with a deep, soulful house gem that's served up in four different mixes.

Up first is Alonso's Original, which is as light and poppy as anything we've heard from DeepWit to date. Next, along comes label boss Alvaro Hylander, who takes us on a far deeper, more contemplative ride. South Arica's Donluiz Musicue then brings ua his Deeper Flavor Mix, an uber-soulful affair tinged with a lil' electronic squelch, before the package is completed by the Deep Waters mix, which strips out a lot of the layers, leaving the voice and keys to do most of the work.

It's Hylander's rub that takes the gold for yours truly, but if you're fiending for the kind of ultra-soulful deepness Naked and Om used to specialise in, this is one you'll want to check for sure.
