DescriptionIndepth Music Records is proud to present a new talent to their roster. Italian duo 2Dave, made up of David De Michele & Gabry Dee is a new project as of this year that represents a pure dark sound. Fresh off a killer EP on Sanity Records, they continue to stay true to their personal style and doing what they do best. Their next mark on Indepth is bursting with groove and hypnotic sound aimed solely for the 5am dance floor. Before the Sunset sees three originals by the duo and two excellent remixes by Italian techno purist Athletic Duo and a producer of the moment, Petar Cvetkovic from Serbia.
The title track opens up the release as a crisp and melodious piece. Deep and driving grooves are interweaved with bubbling and dubby FX giving the bass line a charming hypnotic melody. On the flip side of that, Nebula comes in a little bit darker with large synth sweeps and a warm piano riff. A minimal yet funky drum arrangement completes the sound as a twisted dose of darker electronic music. The final original Icy Soul brings fresh flow with off beat aggressive stabs and their trademark bass groove. A deep and minimal monster, this one is a crowd pleaser for sure.
As for the remixes, The Athletic Duos rework of Icy Soul provides innovative techno at its best. Dubby elements combine with complex grooves and an enormous bass. Its atmosphere is charming and warm as its break down intoxicates the ears with warm pads and a little bit of soul. Finally, Serbian producer Petar Cvetkovic, after a full year of international recognition, lays down his sound in his mix of Before the Sunset. Relying on his signature and unique style, he paints a picture of lush arrange and colorful percussion. Accurate sound selection and a bouncing bass line, make his track a rare underground pearl. Undoubtedly a group to keep on eye on going into their second year of production, 2Dave are clearly comfortable with their sound and represent it with perfection. As Indepths style over their release span has become known for deeper and darker sounds, 2Daves arrival is almost expected and compliments the imprints catalog with stunning delivery.
