Review: Illusion EP by Iulian Badea on Deeperdub Records

By Nazen Carneiro

Minimal and Deep Tech are on the Deeperdub Records’ menu as we confirm in this release, the EP Illusion, by Iulian Badea, which went on air last January 27th.

Iulian Badea is featured in more than 20 record labels such as Under Pressure, Deeperfect, Plastik Galaxy Rebels, Great Stuff, Klaphouse Records, Baikonur Recordings and also What Came First, from Egg London. Recently featured in an article in the UK press, Iulian Badea said that: “The freedom to create and express myself is what I use to make people smile and feel special. A dance floor that smiles has the energy to remain forever in people’s hearts and minds”. That says a lot about his musical identity as we see in the Illusion EP.

Two tracks and more than 15 minutes of liquid flowing beats and swing to warm up any heart and open that smile, kindly related to happy dancing people. That’s the impression the Illusion EP gives you at first glance. And that’s true. The first track is Illusion: Groovy rhythm and beats followed by a digital urban vocal. It’s an organized mess that takes you to a brain activity directly related to the movement of your feet. The breaks and new elements are well-positioned to create a motivational atmosphere. Listen here:

The second track is Bullet. Similar in the upbeat and powerful structure but with a more melodic and profound approach. Made for the dance floor and also for DJs to have a perfect mixing time. Vocals are trippy and exotic in a continuous and sticky manner. 

The Romanian DJ and Music producer Iulian Badea is currently settled in Newcastle-UK to study sound engineering at the Northern Academy of Music Education. About the Illusion EP, he says:

Illusion EP came to life very quickly because its creation process flowed naturally. Took me just one week to put everything together. It was a pleasure to work with Deeperdub Records and also with Anereu, from Plus Beat’Z, who made the bridge with the record label
