Michelle Owen

Perchance to dream

A great representative of the new generation of deepstars like Ian Pooley and Pezzner, Michelle, brings her new perception or house music. She offers deep routes and audio scales that remind many tunes from when the Chicago underground house scene had just been born and I believe that’s one of the reasons her last records on Baker Street and Lost My Dog were always in the bags of Mark Farina and Dj Heather.

Perchance to a dream starts like a piano track, but it turns into pumping mode when it introduces a funky bassline and a 4/4 loop that adds a stomping effect to the tune. A touch of vocal rhythm effects makes this especially pleasant for the ear. The Dub version forgoes the piano and leaves the deep flow roll, creating a perfect option for deep dubbers. To complete the EP, Chez Damier demonstrates how he can drive the tune in towards both funk and percussion.
