Label boss Murat Vural drafts in some heavy-hitting remixers for his latest opus

San Diego's Sound Vessel have been serving up deep house of various flavours for five years now, and kick off year six with a single taken from label boss Murat Vural AKA Processing Vessel's recent album Go On.

In its Original form (included), Always Wonder is a mellow, late-night groover that blends deep and prog influences, so it's unsurprising that the remixes cater for both sides of the equation. BDToms' mix strips out most of the synths, letting the lingering chords and warm bassline take us on an even deeper 6am ride, Kananelo Matlola's performs a similar trick but rides more prominent drums, while Ilias Katelanos's rub pumps things up for 3am deep house floors. Proggier pleasures, meanwhile, can be found courtesy of Argentinian wunderkind Jero Nouques, who also brings the whispered fem vox further to the fore.

If pushed then I think BDTom's mix just nudges it for me, but this is top-drawer tackle whichever mix you opt for.
