Or:la‘s “Reach My Soul” was already a considerably deep house workout before Embryo got his hands on it, but on his remix—which serves as the b-side to Or:la’s recent 12″—the Slovakian producer takes the Liverpool artist’s original version into more properly thumping territory. In truth, Embryo’s “New York Mix” succeeds by simply focusing on the essentials: a set of stabbing chords, a rounded bassline moving in sync, a heavily compressed four-on-the-floor, and just a sprinkling of vocal samples to keep things lively.
