Deetron – DoubleSix Takes Vol. 1

Deetron - DoubleSix Takes Vol. 1
Deetron – DoubleSix Takes Vol. 1

Swiss purveyor, Sam Geiser aka Deetron, delivers his first double pack EP on his label Character: ‘DoubleSix Takes Vol.1’. The 5-tracker across two slabs of vinyl is the producer’s round-up take on house music as it stands today, from the hands and ears of a well-medalled and highly fielded DJ.

Having carved a long-standing reputation in both the techno and house worlds, Deetron exposes another slice of his soul here. Utilising soul, funk and hip-hop production techniques, the tracks are built on sampled material, much in the vein of his earlier and heavily charted tracks ‘Orange’, ‘Sing’ and ‘Silence’. Derived from recordings and other noises, voices and sound sources, the samples are then craftily manipulated, processed and layered to piece different parts – bass, percussion and so on into one original sonic universe.

The opener, ‘I Got To Have You’ features a loopy vocal sample that builds towards a delicious moment of disco in the breakdown – a throwback for the dancefloor – but not too long – what a tease! ‘Take Me Higher’ takes things up a notch, contrasting a clean bass signal with a distorted lead while an infectious female vocal lifts up the curve. Wrapping up the first package is ‘The Grand Cruiser’: its sluggy almost sleazy, low-end and sideways groove over a steady beat makes it an off-kilter and memorable character indeed.

‘Supper in Casa Blanca’ immediately paints an exotic scene with shakers and a tinkling can dancing to a chance encounter with expressive synth work and a beating heart. Signing the EP off is ‘Blues’, a hyper-smooth, jazzy galaxy ride filled with vintage suave – Don’t let nobody take the blues away!

DJ-Set: Tober&Tober presents Afterhour Sounds Podcast Nr.102

what they say:

“Tober & Tober ( Alle Tanzen // Hannover ) presents Afterhour Sounds Podcast Nr.102

Blut ist bekanntlich dicker als Wasser und Familie ist ein Bund fürs Leben. Dass dies nicht nur leere Phrasen sind leben und lieben Simon und Marvin so leidenschaftlich vor wie es nur sein kann. So verwundert es auch nicht, dass das gemeinschaftliche Erlebnis für die beiden einen hohen Stellenwert besitzt.

Seit nun etwas mehr als 5 Jahren stehen die beiden gebürtigen Hildesheimer Jungs Seite an Seite – sowohl vor als auch hinter den Decks und frönen ihrer gemeinsamen Liebe – die elektronische Musik. Etwa zur gleichen Zeit riefen sie auch ihre eigene Partyreihe namens ‘Alle Tanzen’ ins Leben, welche sich in den zurückliegenden Jahren zu einer absoluten Erfolgsgeschichte entwickelt hat. Gemeinsam mit ihren Freunden von Nackt auf Tahiti und Into the Woods Germany haben sie in der Kulturfabrik Löseke Hildesheim ein Zuhause gefunden, welches sie seither unzählige Male mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail verzaubert und so zu einer absoluten Top-Adresse in Mitteldeutschlands Clubkultur gemacht haben.

Als DJ; Produzenten brennen Simon und Marvin ebenso leidenschaftlich für ihre Sache und so verwundert es auch nicht dass auch ihr musikalisches Schaffen von einer unbändigen Qualität geprägt ist. Dabei ergänzen sich die Jungs wirklich wie Yin und Yang und das hört und fühlt man bei ihrem Sound auf ganz besondere Weise. Ihr Podcast für unsere Reihe macht da keine Ausnahme – ein Set mit dem Prädikat ‘Weltklasse’ und nein da übertreiben wir ganz sicher nicht, aber davon könnt ihr euch gern selbst überzeugen. ”
