Nicvius – Tete a Tete [Deep Mix Bucharest]
With a rich history in planning and organizing electronic music events, the Romanian imprint Deep Mix Bucharest presents its third release as a record label, a fresh 12” signed by local artist Nicvius and titled “Tete a Tete”. Recognised as one of Romania’s most active promoters, DMB is always showcasing melodic and uplifting music played by well-established local and international artists.
Sharing the decks with artists like Raresh, Cap, Sepp, Radu Mirica, Mihai Pol, Jack Wickham or Scott Grant, just to name a few, Nicvius has its spot highlighted in the Romanian underground techno scene. Freedom of expression, freedom of creation and freedom of sound is what inspires him in his production and DJ sets. All this with a flavour of techno patterns added to the mix. “Tete a Tete” reveals two original tracks and a re-interpretation from Bacauanu aka VID.
Side A opens with the title track “Tete a Tete”, a whirling micro tech cut, designed around glitchy percussion and sophisticated effects. Following is A2, titled “Zumzet”, a track that takes the rhythm up a notch with a groovy feeling to it. Intricate patterns unfold as the sound flows and the bassline sets the mood for dancing.
On Side B we find Bacauanu aka VID with a re-interpretation of “Zumzet”. Adding melodic textures and long background pads over the minimalistic and glitchy percussion of the original track, this cut is designed for long-lasting after-hours. As DMB gets ready for the next party, this 12” will sure be heard soon on the dancefloor!
