Not much information is available about Librah aside from the fact that the outfit hails from Sweden and that they released the critically acclaimed deep house twelve-inch “2BWU” on Parkwest in 2012, that brought the Deep House EP of the year for those true Loft heads and lucky clouds. “Out of step”, “Timeless” music. Librah’s follow up release on Yore Records is a sure sign of quality, however, and, true enough, My Love is 4ever is what every House Set needs. The perfect balance between deepness and punch. The release splits two Deep House tracks across its twelve-inch, transparent-coloured vinyl sides (limited to 200 copies), and supplements them with a digital-only bonus mix of the title cut.
The material’s mood is largely one of joy and uplift. The silky smooth title track quickly locks into its snappy house groove at the outset, and then pulls back the curtains to let the sunlight pour in. A bright theme imbues the skipping pulse with flavour, and the track rolls along for seven quietly jubilant minutes, its carefree spirit bolstered by a dreamlike vocal refrain and luscious synthesizer textures.
Unspooling at a slightly slower BPM, the B-side’s “Gravity” opens with a sampled voiceover of grave character (When you live in a poor neighborhood, you’re living in an area where you have to have poor schools / When you have poor schools, you have poor teachers...) before fixating on the tunes insistently swinging and hypnotic instrumental design.
The digital mix of “My Love is 4ever” packs a punch, too, especially when it pounds a bit harder than the original and sweetens the deal with a funky bass part and a twinkly keyboard riff. Despite being obviously similar to the original, the bonus version offers an irresistibly funky and infectious riff on the original, so much so it’s easy to picture the dancefloor filling up in response to it.
