Another slice of aural gold from Eskimo Recordings. The Owner is an easy going love song from Greek DJ and producer NTEIBINT, real name George Bakalakos. On it he whips up a steady-paced electronic track with disco flourishes with gorgeous vocals from Stella... And it is the vocal hooks and those muted guitars in the chorus that really hold this track together.
Together with an accentuated, more Balearic beatless version and and extended mix are two remixes. Justin Faust lays down a chunky elastic bassline and uses those guitars to full effect, mixing them in more liberally than on the original. It plays more with the track's layers, creating more of a sense of contrast.
Anoraak's remix is the best here - slickly layered in a effects on the central synth patterns and using a strings to create a more dramatic sense of disco that actually evokes Everything But The Girl in their Temperamental-era, and their collaboration with Deep Dish on Future Of The Future (Stay Gold) particularly. It's utterly glorious disco of the finest variety, and frankly I can't get enough of it.
The Owner is released through Eskimo Recordings on 8 June. Whilst you wait for it to come out check out an edit NTEIBINT released a while back entitled Fooling Around. His remix of Chet Faker's 1998, also below, is great too!
