Review

After the success of the beautiful and sultry ‚Move With Me‘ on Poker Flat 97, alongside Patrick Chardronnet‘s blissfully deep ‚Days Like These‘, David Durango is back with three mesmerising tracks on Dessous. Like a dark, empty night made warm by the pure, reviving light of day, ‚Striptease‘ is an epic tale of love and resolution. Skipping, light percussion flourishes are joined by memorable chord phases that wash through and over the senses. A tender and sincere Detroit style breakdown is then skillfully danced out with teasing, climactic moments of tension. ‚Human‘ is by comparison a lighter journey, as Durango trusts his rhythmic instincts and pulls out some fresh and airy hypnotising synth stutters and a rich palette of spacious percussion. Neo-Chicago stlye, ‚Japanese Revenge‘ is a faster paced deep-down groover that works chugging organ stabs and jacking beats along with glorious room-filling bending synth glides. It‘s a versatile track that sums up Durango‘s unmistakable talent for creating an atmosphere and a celebratory, old-school vs new school vibe. Durango‘s skilled, un-rushed style is the key here, and leads to three very unique dancefloor excursions, each with their own directions, moods and tingling electronic atmospheres.

DES84 in the media

culturanocturna.com: “ David Durango es otro de esos nuevos talentos descubiertos por Steve Bug entre montones y montones de demos. Como ya le ocurriese a Patrick Chardronnet, con quién por cierto compartía protagonismo en el maxi de la serie “The Poker Flat Tournament” que ambos compartieron hace apenas unos meses, Durango le entró por el ojito derecho a Bug con un tema de altura, “Move With Me”. Ahora, el joven productor suizo, que proviene del netlabel Acid Milk, debuta en otro de los labels del bueno de Steve, Dessous, el más house y donde quizá encaje mejor el sonido de este sorprendente y fresco productor. “Striptease” es el nombre de este maxi, que comienza con un tema del mismo nombre que enfila directamente hacia el Detroit house de toda la vida, pero visto desde una perspectiva innovadora, con una contagiosa melodía que lo convierte en tremendamente adictivo. De eso peca también “Human”, aunque en este caso desde un prisma más hipnótico, progresivo incluso. Un track de tintes épicos que lejos de perder capacidad pistera por lo reposado de su tempo, sustenta en su bonita melodía toda su carga emotiva. “Japanese Revenge” completa la oferta desde ese sonido que muchos empeñan en llamar ahora neo Chicago, pero que no es más que una actualización del groove de los Jefferson, Mr. Fingers y compañía a los tiempos que corren. ¿O es que no sabían que el house estaba de vuelta?. Pues sí, afortunadamente… Puntuación: 8/10”

martin landsky (pokerflat): “ all tracks are nice...japanese revenge is my favourite though, classic house feel.... 4/5”

Mike Monday (Playtime-London): “ Lovely deep house - thanks”

Mike Vamp: “ great three tracks. All three match perfectly what I usually expect from dessous. 5/5”

nitestylez.de: “ Dessous Recordings continues its everlasting string of releases with cat.no. 084 these days which is a three tracker by David Durango going by the name of "Striptease". Despite Mr. Durango explores deeper shades of House music here, especially when it comes to the title track, this one can not be filed as musically thrilling as his former releases on Poker Flat and will work best as tool for late night / early morning crowds. Not as essential as one might expect from a Dessous Recordings release.”

Paulo Olarte (fresh fish/iebe: “Nice ep from david durango. My favorite is b1, full support.”

Raveline: “Die Beats drücken zwar ungewöhnlich stark in der Magengegend aber die Gesamtkomposition aus warmen Chords, sanften Flächen und unglaublich deepen Basslines, erschafft eine in sich stimmige und komplett runde Sache. Unsere Freunde aus der Deep – House Abteilung werden sicherlich nicht an dem 84ten Dessous Release vorbeikommen”

Stephan Hinz (Audiomatique/Kli: “ Die David Durango ist ja oberfett! Coole Nummer.”
