Black EP by Deepchild
Just ahead of their 20th release, the Danse Club label has come correct once more with an EP that is sure to soundtrack many a night out in the coming weeks and months. This is Black EP by Deepchild.
Following on from recent widely applauded singles from Brodanse and Emerson Todd, exciting London label Danse Club Records presents the ‘Black EP’ from long time techno mainstay Deepchild. The EP comes with a remix by aforementioned label bosses Brodanse aka sibling duo Austen and Scott and is another trend setting release that looks to the future.
Deepchild has established himself over the years with a fine brand of dance floor focused house and techno on labels like Trapez, Thoughtless and many more and always nails a distinct groove. The Berlin based Aussie, also known for his live shows, does so again here with plenty of aplomb.
The title track opens the account with a whirring, machine driven tech house vibe that has a seductive groove, hooky female vocal cries and plenty of nocturnal spirit. It makes for a restless, unsettled vibe that keeps you on your toes and features plenty of well designed bell sounds off in the distance.
Next up, the bulky and essential ‘Garbij’ is a stripped out, rolling techno number with bold hits, oodles of well placed reverb and another vocal line that adds a sense of humanness to the dark grooves. Deepchild’s final original here is ‘Black Jesus’, a high pressure cut that piles up wobbly hits, scurrying drums and celestial, squared keys on top of each other, the result is a pleasingly intense and otherworldly track with a booming bottom end.
Brodanse remix this one in typically fine style: they layer in a dark vocal, increase the pressure of the drums and have the tough tech track rolling on unhindered. Its a heady, dancefloor focussed one for sure, with lots of percussive techno energy making it impossible to ignore for discerning dancers and DJs alike.
