Four years ago George Bakalakos sent across a remix of Jamaica’s ‘I Think I Like U 2‘ under the alias NTEIBINT. Ever since we’ve been following his music closely from releases on Gang Bang Records and Kitsune to his stunning remix of Alex Gopher’s ‘No Drop‘ he’s been steadily on the rise.
On Monday the Greek producer releases his first EP on Eskimo Records and we’ve got the exclusive first listen of the entire EP. ‘Never Without You‘ features two original tracks, one of which was on Eskimo’s The Blue Collection; a brand-new track ‘Baby‘ and three juicy remixes.
The two originals ‘Never Without You‘ and ‘Baby‘ typify what’s great about NTEIBINT’s sound, whether it’s the emotional vocals from Stella on lead the track or the sumptuous, balmy synths of ‘Baby‘ there’s a lot to love about this release.
As well as two great originals, there’s is, of course, a bevy of tasty remixes. First up is deep house producer Bluford Duck who reworks ‘Never Without You‘ into an on-point house track utilising deep, stabbing basslines against the original’s vocals for club-ready remix.
Elsewhere, Russian producer Domestic Technology goes for a slow italo soiree, which has been picking up support from Aeroplane amongst others. And to finish you have Gespleu, aka Anton Lanski, who goes for lo-fi, dreamy effort to round-off a near-perfect release.
