Direkt – Acabadabra EP [UVAR]
Romanian DJ and producer Andrei Popa aka Direkt drops Acabadabra EP on UVAR‘s Black Series, revealing four fresh cuts designed with a vibrant and uplifting minimal sound. The artist is well-known in the international scene, having collaborated with renowned labels such as Stamp Records, Subtil, Soper Univers, Thinc, Tier, Vivus Records, Botanic Minds, Atipic and Micro Orbit Records, while also recording amazing sets for various podcast platforms (The Conscious Cast, Telum, Trommel, Sunrise Hub, Rowle). As the restrictions for the coronavirus are slowly lifted, we hope to see him behind the decks soon. Now, let’s dive into his latest material and explore the tracks in more detail.
The EP opens with the energetic waves of “Destination”, taking the listener for a ride into playful dimensions of minimal techno. The prominent drumming patterns and warm background arrangements are elegantly balanced by spacious breakdowns, providing a solid introduction for the album. Following, “Out For A Run” reveals a colourful narrative flavoured with mesmerising textures, subtle glitched layers, heavily modulated vocals and a driving beat.
On the flipside we first find the deep vibes of “Randomx”, a composition that seems to evoke long chilled sunsets spent somewhere in the middle of nature, away from any distractions and unnecessary things. The closing cut “Them” explores a darker mood, built with twisted effects, numerous variations and haunting vocals. Definitely a must-have record right here!
