OWSLA's Durante releases Challenger EP
The '80s vibe is coming back in a big way, in a disco way, in the acid way, in the deep house way. Durante represents the two latter notions as evident from the 4-track EP 'Challenger', made available on OWSLA's digital label Nest. This producer's coming out of nowhere, but we sure are glad OWSLA have gotten him under their wing!
From the beginning, you're urged to 'Take A Look', and the track captures with a profound house feel and a multi-layered percussion section. So after you've gotten curious, the bass kicks in and really makes you appreciate the feeling that Durante's been able to give forth.
Next one's a stadium-sized banger with more of an electro touch, giving grounds to the belief that we have a multi-genre producer on our hands! 'Radio' will surely play this tune over and over again, from Hardwell to Tiesto to A-Trak to Fedde le Grand.
Perhaps the highlight for me personally, the slowly grinding 'Challenger's got a nice pipe section, to go with the '80s car movie synthesizers. Kavinsky will be proud.
The tempo remains slow for the last one, 'Crash'. You'll be able to smoothly go back to your everyday actions after this finished the EP. But the ride sure is enjoyable. Looking forward to hearing from Durante!
