Asad Rizvi caught my attention while listening to Hernán Cattáneo's 'The Master Series Volume 2' Compilation CD on Renaissance.
I'm talking about CD1, track 8... Yes, the 'Affrodizziac' remix he did.

Therefore I decided to check him out some more. He never disappointed me since. The man simply keeps on delivering suprising house tracks.
Pretty odd when you think of it though, since he has a certain sound that you can find in all his productions.
The key in my opinion however, lays in creating a some sort of recognition supported by deep flowing basslines combined with stabs without too much fx attached.
Similar to 'Pillow Talk' and the remix he did for Blaze's 'How Deep Is Your Love' described as 'funky' deep house tracks which are NOT similar to the Affrodizziac release I mentioned before.
Despite that, I do recognize the 'Rivzi-twist' he puts together when comparing these tracks.

I simply cannot get enough because of his excellent creativity combined with talent, experience and production skills.

One final word; Breathtaking.
