Premiere: Taupe – Deep Water

Seven years after their inaugural release, Spanish imprint Sungate deliver the five-track ‘Deep Water‘ EP – courtesy of Dutch maverick producer Tobias Blankenstein, most commonly known as Taupe.

Like recent releases on label-owned Colours, Deeptrax’s sublabel Tech-um and Gated Recordings, ‘Deep Water’ illustrates classic Detroit electro aesthetics combined with meditative melancholia and fast-paced wrathfulness.

Our pick for the premiere is ‘Deep Water‘ – thanks to its electro climax putting the record straight to the mermaid’s myth of the Drowned Land of Saeftinghe. In these misty lands, its warehouse-style rolling basslines, abyssal synthesizers, and Drexciya-esque drum rhythms elicit thoughts of adventure.

‘Deep Water’ is scheduled for release on 2nd February via Sungate Records. Order a vinyl copy from Bandcamp.
