melchior sultana is back on his own profound sound with another cascading celebration of sheer musicality and sunkissed dancefloor dreams for sunsets that never end. if -timeless- doesn t transport you to a balmy, carefree state of mind then you should probably see a doctor - every inch of yearning synth, guitar, bass and beat is tenderly engineered for pure escapism. -the message- has a similarly rich sound bank, but it adopts a duskier mood that ever so slightly edges towards the club instead of the terrace. -i m serious- skips past the peak of the night and beckons you straight through to the after party - equal parts seduction and wind down for dancers with the mediterranean sun in their soul.
melchior sultana has not been short of labels to release on over the past few years, from deepartsounds and three fingers musique to minuendo and 12records, but here he can be found inaugurating the profound sound label with some of his trademark deep house tones. -feel this- is a shimmering, nocturnal groover with mystery to match its subtle funkiness, while the live edit of -give it to the moon- has an easier vibe about it with its lingering, warm pads and breezy swing. -treasures- shakes things up with a jazz funk twist, letting effervescent instrumentation flirt around the crooked house beat with stunning results and then the slow, sensual original version of -give it to the moon- cradles the remaining run time of the ep in a downtempo haze of easy beats and stirring vocals.
after numerous releases on staple labels like moods & grooves, deep explorer, contrast wax, minuendo & soul print, the duo from malta are back to their homegrown label batti batti. the 3 tracks on this ep are somewhat different to their usual style, putting aside their laid-back deepness and focusing more on the dance floor by delivering an ep of raw drums, acid lines, warm chords and filtered pads. a truly interesting release to say the least.
finally the first deepartsounds release in 2017 by alessandro pasini aka deep88 and melchior sultana! the first song reminds on one of the absolute fav deep house tracks ever -key note- by wayne gardiner. the rest is dope too with a touch of rivera and balearic feeling.

3fm003 is composed by 3 diverse soulful tracks all recorded live which are set to be played everywhere this winter. the ep opens with healer , an emotional slow jam driven by warm pads and original voices that probably will bring your memory to theo parrish s flower . following is the club oriented story , a straight house track guided by a 4/4 drum machine pattern and permeated with a loved up vibe. the ep ends with the deeper time can tell : broken rides, key solos, groovy bass-line.. jazz!
