Distant Hawaii kicks into gear for the second half of 2016 with our first Transatlantic artist joining in the shape of immense production and DJ talent, Garrett David. Already a prominent figure in the Windy City scene via his residency at Smart Bar and working as A&R and in-house buyer at Gramaphone Records; Garrett's talents extend even further, right back to the lab, to the deep studio from whence all music grows. His Chicago-tinged-with-Detroit blend of clean, yet warm and occasionally raw bumpin' house tracks showcase a kaleidoscope of grooves backed by heavy-seated drum programming and glacial, almost-interspatial padwork. 'Octagon Blues' is built on a bedrock of steadily ascending Juno throbs, that climb higher and higher over skittering, pebble-dashed percussion and bristle with high end synth-whistling by the close. 'Power Up' shifts up the tempo and velocity with a proper kickin' fast groove and undulating Omar S-esque bass-line sequences aimed squarely at the heart of the Sunday night dance. Flipping over the 12", 'Remedy' comes glowing into life through soft pad caressing and a steady 5am melancholia bass-line. Touches of a light rain smack the windshield, preceding a wonky and portamento'd melodic surprise. The shyer, mysterious cousin of 'Power Up'. The closer, but this easily could have been the opener, 'Healing Channel' is exactly that. An instant transportation to a sole experience in the flotation tank. An isolated yet comforting zone of inner peace, only broken by a steady live drum groove, peppered with delay from the inner walls of the listeners water-based sanctuary.
