One hundred and eighteen records in the books from Nordic Trax and number one hundred and eighteen hits the spot.
Danford is a new five track EP from La Deep, a South African producer who returns from a five year hiatus. Living up to the moniker, this is moody, deep, nodding stuff, especially the title track which seems to shake with powerful vibes like a hunk of radioactive thorium emits gamma rays. Gavin Boyce’s remix of the same track is upfront and groovy. “Mos Lira No Kante” is the other stand-out track, with spring-loaded bouncy percussion and chords held so long they’re almost immobile. It masters the rare trick of seeming to become louder without touching the levels at all — just through layering and a driving intensity that picks up momentum.
La Deep’s Danford EP is out now digitally wherever you buy your shit.
