Bold and stirring vibrations emanate from the new release by rising German electronic producer Deckert. A raw, percussive debut solo EP with some seriously deep grooves, enigmatically named 1-1, is soon to be released on Revel’s best-loved premium dance label, Connected.
Deckart has a unique take on contemporary house music, influenced by an extensive assortment of genre blends, and years of partying in the concrete heart of techno utopia, Berlin. A relative newcomer to the electronic world stage, he joined forces with producer/DJ, Aaaron back in 2017, and a dynamite collaborative tour-de-force was created. The delectable, booty-shaking single L.D.O.E was the result, a gorgeous, vocal-oriented sonic vibration that made a tremendous impact on dancefloors across the globe.
Righteously manifesting a place for both artists to unite under the Connected label umbrella, the 1-1 Ep is an exceptional slice of Deckert’s concise production skills. He delivers a compact and resolute structure to both his 1-1 Original Mix and Sakura Dust tracks. Boldly stated, with propulsive, infectious beat patterns, the EP is a rich tapestry of delightful synth textures, which weave into elevated, climatic twists. This is house music with real drama.
Sakura Dust is another fresh offering that continues Deckert’s deep obsession with Japanese pop culture, heavily on a Koto string sample. The traditional Japanese string instrument provides a thread through the track, a harmonic arc which ties together this ambitious and emotional sonic storytelling.
The EP also offers two phenomenal remixes by Italian-Swiss composer Parsifal, a well-kent face who runs his own Kinesen label. Parsifal’s interpretation of 1-1 offers a rich dynamic in melody and breadth, a contrast with the more minimalist approach of the original. With these fuller, rich tones comes a new take on the narrative of the track. Finally, Everything Counts aka Teodora “Toshka” from Bulgaria, and Chris Leon take Sakura Dust on a melancholic ride by intensifying the Asian foundation of its core.
