about

Having already delivered two sun-kissed collaborations, longstanding Eskimo DJ/producer George Bakalakos AKA NTEIBINT & fellow Athenian Matina Sous Peau return to the label with ‘What You Need’, another effortlessly light & breezy sounding disco-house number.

“‘What You Need’ is the kind of ballad that you can dance to on a sweet, warm summer night. It’s an echo of the disco sounds of the past, and Matina has the perfect voice for this kind of song, so producing this track and working with her again was a real labour of love,” says George.

The result is the kind of track that would sound perfectly at home both soundtracking a boat party in the Adriatic and livening up the daytime playlist on the radio. A vibrant, catchy number that ably combines a pop sensibility with on point club production and a surprisingly introspective theme.

“The song itself is actually about looking within,” explains Matina. “It’s about an inner search during which you discover yourself, and where everything that stands true for you is suddenly revealed in a flash”.

Having previously worked on together on the soulful ‘Love Is Everywhere’ and the classic disco of ‘Back to the Roots of Love’, ‘What You Need’ completes a stunning trilogy for the two Greek artists, exploring and updating the club sounds of the past, reshaping them into something fresh and modern. Now as we head into Autumn Eskimo Recordings have tapped up acclaimed producers Tensnake and Spiller to provide two remixes.

Wisely keeping Matina's vocals intact, Tensnake replaces the original's echo of 70s disco with something that nods more to the early 80s proto-house works of producers like Mark Kamins and François Kevorkian. Built around a looping synth melody and a solid 4/4 beat, with requisite 80s snares of course, Tensnake teases us with a bubbling synth bass line that suddenly explodes into hands in the air euphoria three minutes before switching back to a more sophisticated shuffle.

Italian producer Spiller has brought the 70s disco sound to the fore with his remix. Most famous for his massive 2000 hit ‘Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love)’, Spiller has proven himself to be equally adept at crafting underground club classics over the years and with this remix the Italian producer has expertly wielded his scalpel, cutting and looping the track & snatches of the vocals to create a taut, disco-house number. Understated but undeniably funky, Spiller’s remix of ‘What You Need’ is the perfect track for when you just need to lock the crowd into a hypnotic groove and let them do their thing, perfect for both mirror ball lit dance floors and roller discos alike.
