feeder sound exclusive premiere: Dubphone – Alive And Kickin [CUE]
Dubphone makes a really impressive return on Sven Jaeger’s CUE imprint with a two-tracker EP titled “Alive And Kickin”. His relentless energy and passion for electronic music can easily be seen in his activity which wasn’t put on hold lately, on the contrary, he continued to work on several projects delivering quality music for the people to enjoy. This includes remixes for Triad and ONNO, several unreleased tracks that can be found on his soundcloud page, a fresh EP dropped on his own label Vandalism Musique and another one that will be released in June through Bad Barbie Records.
Founded in 2018, CUE functions as a digital and vinyl publisher, having an extended catalogue to which artists like Aney F., Artur Nikolaev, Nektar Agu, Sascha Dive, Christian Burkhardt and CL-ljud contributed to. Dubphone‘s previous material on the label, the “Half Sad, Half Happy” EP, came out almost one year ago and was well received by the international community. On this one, there’s a slightly different change in the mood, with the tracks being more melodic and steady-paced.
Designed with crisp percussion, warm background textures and dreamy guitar cuts, the track reveals a subtle melancholic feeling while still packing enough energy to make anyone move his body while drifting on a daydream. The breakdowns perfectly balance the whole composition and the dubby vibrations are elegantly crafted to be intensely felt on powerful soundsystems.
Titled “Sometimes”, the second piece evokes a summertime-like feeling, bringing deep vocals to the table and an equally resonating mellow sound. Flavoured with alluring and playful synth notes, this journey counts as an excellent choice in any afterhours selection.
