Drawing influences from a variety of genres, from funk, acid jazz, and jazz-funk, and blending it all with his passion for house, Denis manages to create a sound which transcends time and music labels, leaving the listener to enjoy a lavish and complex sonic experience.
Crisalida, which translates to chrysalis from Spanish, means an inactive insect between two different forms and you get a sense of this trance from Crisalida which bounces around playful melodies and lively baselines while being carried by an electro-infused beat. Re-Quest, on the other hand, is a slow tech house roller with similar light atmospheres, a contrasting stepping baseline, and dark undertones. The twisted circulating opera vocal samples in L’Opera gives it a unique character and, finally, Famara finishes the EP with a melancholic whisper, pulsing along with a complimentary wobble baseline.
