UNIQUE HANDMADE SPECIAL EDITION / Strictly limited 250 copies) A1: Bicycle Love (Original Mix) B1: Bicycle Love (Brad Ps Strings and Keys Mix) B2: Bicycle Love (Damon Lamars Lower Wacker Drive Mix) * Unique handmade red paint bicycle wheels patterns on the front record sleeve - each a unique individual piece, sleeve backside handstamped, vinyl comes as transparent light rosé transparent coloured vinyl. Strictly Limited 250 copies. Andy Vaz has a giant passion for cycling, precisely for extensive trips from his Hometown Cologne to Düsseldorf and other destinations around the area on his old school flavoured VITUS 979 Duralinox racing bike. Bicycle Love is his personal homage to it. A slinky hi-hat figure does, in fact, give the original a bicycle-like quality, but the tunes otherwise an ultra-smooth deep house jam, which is also about true love. spirit Vaz bolsters the Original Version with creamy Rhodes chords, congas, and soulful House Vocals. The cut oozes warmth and uplift, so much so that one cant help but visualize while listening to it a cyclist breezing through the countryside on a warm summer day. Damon Lamar, who co-runs with Specter the Chicago deep house music label Tetrode, contributes a remix whose slink grooves as insistently as Vazs though does so with a kind of panther-like stealth that emphasizes its US connection. In augmenting the tune with a generous smattering of twilight synths, Lamar recasts the cut as a night-time ride through the city streets. The release is rounded out by a languorous Brad Ps Strings and Keys Mix thats as tasty as the others if a tad funkier (and jazzier) due to a tiny hiccup that subtly arrests the groove and a thudding bass pulse that kicks in halfway through. A true collectors handmade twelve-inch release, made with passion / 250 copies strictly limited.
