The A side on this release is absolutely stunning! I always considered Affie's best works to come from his 'The Parkwalker' moniker and of those few releases, this track is probably my favourite. I've got it for two years now and I still play it regularly. It's great deep house, with a great vocal snippet and a short (but great) break at the end. It's a track that never overwhelmes, but gently finds its way into your hips with its sheer beauty and beautiful analog programming. Think of tracks like those by the early Soul Capsule: timeless house tracks!

Also thumbs up for the Belgian label Nowar, which is still releasing quality underground deep house tracks, I really hope the label will once get the recognition it deserves!

The Parkwalker is one Affie Yusuf's monikers under which he released a handful of deep, soothing and hypnotic house gems on Funknose, back in the 90's. Some people may also recall House of 909 releases on Pagan or Alola. We think it's time to get The Parkwalker character out there again, walking the parks in search of magic potions and analog children. We think it’s time for The Parkwalker to rise again and intoxicate innocently wandering souls with his almost therapeutically caressing deep house magic. Nowar has the honour and privilege to relaunch The Parkwalker with its first release, Degeneration.
Two deep spiritual house gems to which you dance with your eyes closed, melting away to otherworldly spaces. Degeneration instantly talks to your soul and dictates the rest of your body with primitive universal moves and grooves. Organic, sexy, and soulful music for mind and body. Opendance continues the journey on the flipside with equal hypnotic deepness and electronic soothing sounds for angelic tribes in an imaginary future… Essential house music.
