Vision Collective Recordings was started by a group of producers, DJs, and music enthusiasts in southern Ireland with a shared musical vision. The label focuses on spacious deep house, and serves as a platform for both new and established artists (in and outside of Ireland) to release music commercially. The label’s first two releases were extremely well-received and played by many notable DJ-types. Now Vision Collective Recordings welcomes back Mick Verma, the artist behind the label’s debut release, for a new set of deep house tunes.
Mick Verma is a Cork City, Ireland DJ with over a decade of experience behind the decks and in the studio. His previous releases have found their way to the Ukraine’s
Manuscript Records and Italian house label Gotta Keep Faith Records. This latest release, The Dreamour EP, shows what Mick does best which is high-quality warm and sophisticated house music, both in uptempo and more laid-back vibes. “Indian Groove" is a blend of mad and up-for-it synths over a sexy bass line, cool deep and jazzy keys, and a sweet Indian vocal sample. "Dreamour" is a mellow-ish late night soulful lounge track while the EP’s third cut, "Rohan’s Disco,” is a funky house music tune with a solid disco hook. The sole remix in the package come from QuestionmarQ, AKA Marq Walsh who has been at the forefront of the Irish dance scene over the last 20 years. He’s held high profile residencies at Irish hot spots like Sir Henry’s Cork and U2’s club ‘The Kitchen’ in Dublin. Walsh is also co-host of the popular weekly radio show Dance On Red on Ireland’s RED FM. His recording resume includes releases on Soma/Darkroom Dubs, Night Drive, Resopal Schallware, and Toto. QuestionmarQ’s Vision Of House Remix of “Dreamour” confidently takes the track to the dance-floor with an upfront house groove and rousing, club-ready arrangement while still having its feet firmly planted within lush, deep house.
