Into The Open
Atlantic Standard Recordings is proud to present their third release of music composed and produced by Russian/Canadian recording artist, Deemah. Where his last recording for Halifax-based ASR highlighted a more serious mood, The “Slavic Contraband EP” approaches the dancefloor with a much lighter heart but still with Deemah’s determined kick drums and signature thick, funky bass. “Into The Open” puts a smile on your face from the opening chords with its lush French vibe and summer anthem flavour. “Skywalker” neatly collides funky electro-house and latin horns in a west-coast flavoured blend, spiced up with Deemah’s own brand of pumping funk. A track that defies convention while having as friendly a vibe as this track does is sure to appeal to wide range of DJs and dancefloors. “Air Filter” is another classic example of Deemah’s uncanny ability to merge the moving funk of house music with the soulful bleep of techno. A warm bassline relentlessly pumps out the funk over complex layers of patterns and sounds with an edge inspired in Detroit and Chicago to make this track a seriously funky exploration.
