DEEWEE

London based Brazilian artist Laima announces the 12” vinyl release of ‘Disco Pregnancy’. The release follows from her double-vinyl debut album ‘Home’, released by DEEWEE last November. ‘Home’ is a striking proposition. It’s a package which features two records that are designed to be played simultaneously: Laima’s vocal and synth tracks on the ‘Tonal’ disc alongside Iggor’s beats on the ‘Rhythmical’ record. By syncing the two records listeners are offered an unconventional way to experience the music.

The ‘Disco Pregnancy’ 12” will be released on 6th March 2020 and for the first time features the combined Tonal + Rhythmical versions of album tracks ‘Disco Pregnancy’ and ‘Home’, all recorded, produced and mixed by Stephen & David Dewaele (Soulwax/2manydjs).

Each Other (aka Justin Strauss & Max Pask)

Be Nice To Each Other

Justin Strauss and Max Pask join forces to form the new project Each Other, dropping this semi-self-titled debut EP ‘Be Nice To Each Other’ via Soulwax/2manydjs label DEEWEE. While Strauss and Pask have DJ’d together on numerous occasions, this is the first time that they’ve collaborated on a production project.

The EP finds Each Other creating an eclectic range of sounds in the space of just three tracks. The opener ‘Same As It Never Was’ is the most immediate of the set, becoming more hypnotic as the minimalist topline buries itself into your subconscious. The downtempo ‘Burn It Down’ then darkens the mood, feeling closer to a dystopian sci-fi soundtrack than an underground club classic, before the playful and progressive ‘Six Weeks’ up the energy with jittering beats, sparkling synths and a cooly understated vocal.

“What we were trying to do and what we’ve hopefully achieved was to merge our influences with a nod to what many consider to be the ‘golden age’ of New York,” explains Justin Strauss. “You don’t realise that these periods were becoming important markers in history when we were living through them. It only comes later with the added benefit of time. I hope that in years to come, history will find a place for what we’re doing now” - Each Other.

Sil says: Being a strong Deewee fanboy, my say on this one does not differ from their past 12s. Oozing quality and originality on the three killers here, this one is part of the 'buy on sight' bunch.

The brothers Dewaele (of Soulwax fame) keep the Deewee bangers coming courtesy of he solo debut from their Brasilian buddy Phillipi. Earlier this year São Paulo duo Phillipi & Rodrigo dropped their beautifully uplifting debut album ‘Paciencia’, which scored all sorts of plaudits all over the place, including your favourite record shop (Ah-thankyou!). While ‘Paciencia’ pulsated with a euphoric beach party vibe, Phillipi’s solo project explores much darker territory. By uncompromisingly maximising the bass alongside a relentless beat, lead track ‘São Paulo’ is immediately oppressive and ominous. That intensity only amplifies as it’s blown open with tribal percussion, almost whispered vocals and glitchy synth stabs. ‘Vibe De Verao’ then takes a more progressive approach, with minimalist techno constantly evolving in surprising and inventive ways. 
The EP’s second half extends Phillipi’s impossible-to-pigeonhole approach. In complete contrast to the preceding tracks, ‘9000’ is cinematic in scope and lighter in tone, feeling like the score to a lost ‘70s sci-fi cult classic that’s been reworked for 2019. And ‘Gelo Seco’ caps an unorthodox sonic adventure by setting a spliced, stuttered vocal simple around a dancefloor-friendly soundscape - making the title, the Portuguese phrase for dry ice, entirely appropriate. As with all DEEWEE releases, ‘Amadurecimento’ was recorded, produced and mixed at the label’s inspiring headquarters Ghent, Belgium.

Sil says: Brazilian, playful and dancefloor friendly. It does not get hotter than this. And it has to be on the great Deewee label. You need this!

Asa Moto

Playtime EP

    The brothers Dewaele tempt Ghent outfit Asa Moto back to their irresistible Deewee imprint for a third EP,  this time delivering six radically different pieces of music, providing something for everyone. Dance floor : covered. Kitchen: covered. Hi Fi: check. Car: sorted. EarPod: done. Up to you to find out which one was made for which.
    The unhinged action opens with the wonky electronix and odd synth-funk of "Soon Please", a shoulder rolling hit of gurgling bass and garbled sequencing which sounds like a load of amphibians on amphetamines. "Kifesh" and "Playtime"  stomp and romp their way through New Beat idents, NDW vocals and electrodisco bass, coupling cosmic quirk with krautish sound design. Skipping to the B-side we get hit with the rolling bass meets City Pop melody of "Hynek Maneuvre" (as tasty an Asian fusion dish as you'll sample all year), the warping leadlines and bleeping rhythms of "Worrying", and classic synth pop of "Twenty Six". Slo-mo with energy!
