La Belle Records continue to serve up no-frills, macho machine sounds with this new EP from Roe Deers & Curses featuring a remix from the excellent Jonathan Kusuma
Roe Deers is a Lithuanian-based audio-visual project by Liudas and Oskaras, two close friends who have released on the likes of Magic Feet, Omnidisc and Nein Records. Whilst Curses is the dark and romantic moniker of New York City native Luca Venezia who mixes Italo, electronic music and rock and roll into thrilling new sounds.
“’Fade Away’ is an anthem against prejudice, as it’s time we all fade into one and get lost together in the party” he says. Roe Deers, meanwhile, recounts that they made the music on a sunny day with lots of long and live guitar takes. Luca creating the vocals in one take by singing into a digital delay and stomp box through an old cycling 74 max patch.
Indonesian producer Jonathan Kusuma is co-founder of space.rec and Akamandy Records and reworks ‘Fade Away’ into a prowling and low slung groover. It’s menacing and dark, with fat bass and smeared synths bringing real tension and a psyched-out feel.
Just how we like it!
