Dumitrescu – Sound Division LP 2×12″ (w. Mischa Blanos & Boyband remixes) [Midas Touch]
Romanian imprint Midas Touch brings forward its second pressing from the MDT LTD series with local up and coming artist Dumitrescu dropping 6 fresh cuts alongside Mischa Blanos and Boyband (Macarie and Andrei Petru) on remix duties. The venture’s main catalogue includes amazing EPs from Chrivu, Maifaunu, Sonohat and RWN as well as a Various Artist compilation that brings together Boyband & Vlad Arapasu, Rojid, Abel Soleil and Cerec. The first LP from the MDT LTD side series is signed by label head himself, Macarie.
Dumitrescu is part of the new wave of Romanian producers, young artists that started to search for new sounds, breaking ties with the classic rominimal stereotype. This LP presents a fine mixture of minimal, house, electro, breaks and acid that will make you dance instantly. Let’s dive in and explore the tracks in more detail.
The first record opens with the title track “Sound Division” rolling out a solid broken beat elegantly flavoured with heavily modulated layers that create a hypnotic rotation. Following, “Bass Invaders Refunked” takes the journey further with a deep and piercing bassline in focus that smoothly leads immersive textures and shuffling drumming patterns. On the B-Side, “Out Of The Blue” expands into the possibilities of A1 and lays down a more atmospheric approach while “Back To Basics” provides a rather laid-back sound, perfect for morning or late afternoon sessions.
On the second record we first find “Aivi”, a chilled-out composition flavoured with intricate and ever-evolving synth patterns that evoke serenity and introspective states of mind. Mischa Blanos takes some of the original layers and adds an extra punch with his remix while keeping to the spacious atmospheric feeling. The new pads and textures are imbued with progressive aspects and the beat is ready to make anyone dance in seconds. Next up there’s “Borealis” which renders equally enjoyable breaks, spiralling effects and lush breakdowns while Boyband‘s remix completes the LP with style, taking this whole release to another level.
