Igor Dorohov feat. Lazarusman – I Wanna a Woman

This is what a deep summer sounds like, this is what desire sounds like. Igor Dorohov, a Moscow based producer, graces the label with his deep, smooth and captivating track “I Wanna a Woman” featuring the outstanding vocals of Lazarusman from South Africa. After appearing on labels like Acryl, Pesto, and In Deep Records, it is a privilege to welcome him to DeepWit. In this single, Igor embarks on a journey of funky bass lines, indelible refrains and a warmth that can only be found in proper Deep House. The first remix comes from a label favourite, Ivan Garci. His take includes his signature melodic sound combined with a flair of dreamy yet invigorating percussion and piano with only the occasional vocal sample thrown in for good measure. The final track is a remix from label boss Alvaro Hylander. As per usual, this producer of groove has set out to embrace not only the unique vocals but to wrap the track up in his signature sound and sensually carnal deepness. When it comes to making a dance floor full of deep house lovers move, nothing beats the lush sounds of Mr. Hylander.

I Wanna a Woman is a single aimed at those who love it deep, sensual and delightfully full of wanton grooves which almost every occasion calls for.
