Greek-born, Krakow-based DEAS is a producer of unusual stylistic and emotional breadth, possibly the result of growing up with a range of cultural and geographical influences. His fourth EP on Second State Audio continues his impressive run, a mosaic of moods and textures that coalesces into a cohesive, compelling whole. "Space Race" brings a futuristic cosmos to mind, a track that's at once urgent and foreboding, yet light on its feet. Arpeggiating laser synths glide over peppy drum patterns in a manner that encourages dancefloor mayhem. "Apart" is a little more sinister but still highly danceable, with a propulsive bassline, noodling lashes of acid and an almost psychedelic vibe. "Index" strips it back and places the drums front-and-center in a less-is-more piece designed to keep the party chugging, while "DRMS", another percussion-based track, adds trippy effects to enhance those slightly sideways moments. "Radiation", meanwhile, is a journey in the true sense of the word, a track that morphs from atmospheric to tense and back again in an arrangement that's uncluttered, yet highly effective at creating a sense of delicious unease. This EP is another collection of weapons from an internationally acclaimed techno producer and DJ.
