Deaf Pillow, Vern, Peshka – Bad Coffee [Druzhba]

Berlin-based vinyl-only record label Druzhba announces their 11th pressing to arrive on the 1st of March with the Peruvian duo Deaf Pillow dropping two steaming tracks while local artist Vern and Ukrainian producer Peshka deliver their own distinct interpretations of the originals. Titled “Bad Coffee”, the EP will be available in a limited number of only 300 copies so make sure you don’t miss out on this one.

Rodrigo Lozano and Christian Berger aka Deaf Pillow have been collaborating for over a decade, strongly influencing and changing Lima’s electronic music landscape especially through their long-lasting residencies at Superclub, La Huaka and La Tribu. Their international success is defined by inspiring DJ sets and amazing releases on Kindisch, Drumma, Audionumb Music, Crosstown Rebels, Better On Foot, Sudbeat, Hermine, Get Physical and Vatos Locos, to name only a few. For this journey, they join forces with Vern and Peshka in order to complete the outstanding narratives of “Bad Coffee” and “Skywalkers”. Let’s dive in!

On Side A we find the title track “Bad Coffee” and Vern’s remix. The original cut reveals an uplifting rhythm designed with deep textures and melancholic atmospheres that elegantly intertwine with the driving drumming patterns and spacious breakdowns. The re-interpretation takes the tempo down a notch offering a more minimalistic soundscape. Here, the background melodies are transformed into playful synth work and the layers receive a smooth swing.

The B-Side features “Skywalkers”, a tech-oriented dancefloor anthem flavoured with numerous microelements, twisted effects and heavily modulated vocal cuts that relentlessly rotate around the prominent percussive core, making this piece perfect for peak-time moments. Peshka’s remix provides a stripped-down version which keeps the altered harmonics in focus while maintaining all the energy. The vocals undergo a different kind of processing and the rhythm receives a shuffling effect.
