After recently releasing astonishing records on Vakant & Kalk Pets, DeWalta is hitting now even more dynamic and powerful the springtime floors. Back on his motherlabel with great & unusual music and we dare to say that it is our favorite release of him so far...
"Saluki" starts straight with a crafty bass driven smooth rocket and build it's self up alongside a guiding piano loop to reach very atmospheric frictions. Soft choir singing here and there, various dub sounds brushing in the space, bringing all sound aficionados into a beautiful ride. DeWalta's crispy rhythms are eventually fading out into melancholic and moving Detroitish strings, to complete this unique piece of music.
"Shagya" on the flipside is a self-developing carnevalesque odyssey. It's such a profound & delicious
kickdrum, tightened with an extraordinary bass presence, it's simply irresistible not to groove happily on
that one. All is enriched with polyphonic Balafon rhythms and hilarious African rooted chants - this is the energetic tool for those special intimate moments. A perfect track when lust and familiarity is present within the crowd and you consider time as officially ended.
