Those happy hardcore vibes are partly nostalgic, but the synths and the way these have been intertwined – even the way they fall back to allow the vocal to shine once again – everything has been arranged with a clear understanding of how effective dance music works.
Classic dance music in the depth of the night is the blanket under which this kind of release naturally settles. As always, there are flickers of inspiration from across the globe, not least of all shown through the vocal fragments that are in Zulu – these are actually the names of spices, a quirky nod to the track’s title and underlying concept.
Where the majority of dance releases have taken to the modern pop-fusion approach in recent years, this track offers hope. There’s a classic or tribal house vibe to the composition that’s a joy to have rain down around you.
There’s a hypnotic quality to this extended musical journey that overtakes any need for structure or change. There’s a sense of growth, sure – the layers intensify just slightly, but you start to question whether that’s actually happening or whether it’s simply your mind making it appear that way.
Finely crafted EDM presents itself by means of a progressive house beat and a melodic, partly organic backdrop – all beautifully intertwined on this, the latest release from Dehko.
You can love this as a fan of house & EDM in general – unlike the more common pop-EDM fusions that rob the listener of their initial attachment to either of those genres. DBT has a clear connection to the music & an understanding of what works, so this finely tuned, beautifully crafted release stands out in a subtle, not screaming for attention manner.

Whenever we seek out the soundtrack to a quick drive or to wake us up in the morning, this is the sort of smooth yet clever ambiance we turn to. There’s nothing overly personal that detaches the track from the listener – on the contrary, it feels like it’s been made for you; exactly the way we like to feel when we turn to music.
For those discovering this at 3am in the city, it would feel like a much bigger experience & the perfect thing to see you through any late night uncertainty. Some of the details are incredibly impressive from a production perspective, really creative yet not overbearing in being so, it just works.
As Walt Disney said ‘If you can dream it, you can do it’. There is no 100% sure way to success. Everyone must find his own way. The most important thing is to find your own sound & build your network.
DJ Ease brilliantly brings together absolute professionalism, skill, and a freely roaming aura of creativity. Full House is a refreshing mix, fit to take 2018 into the new realm of energizing audio that awaits us.
A breath of fresh air, the details & the sheer satisfaction of that stop 7 subsequent re-start; there’s a fire about it all that you just don’t come across in such an alternative, heavy manner these days.
