Deft "Rising Sun"
After unveiling the video for "Faded," a track from Deft's forthcoming Voight Kampff EP, the Croydon-based producer has given us another cut from his forthcoming record. "Rising Sun" feels like an appropriate title for the single, with its loping 120 bpm groove and cascading pieces of clattering percussion. On top of these rhythms, Deft deploys an array of warm, side-chained pads which thicken the track's foreground, while sun-kissed melodies and chopped samples float restlessly in the background. With both "Faded" and "Rising Sun" as early indications, the upcoming Voight Kampff EP seems likely to deliver dense textures and poignant moods when it officially drops on September 6 via the dependable Project: Mooncircle label.
