DEAS is a DJ and music producer from Krakow, Poland. Originally born in Greece, lived in Belgium, registered in Krakow nowadays, DEAS received the major order to be a DJ and to play electronic music in 2008. Since he was a child music was his fascination. Grew up on the classical music, then he was fascinated by jazz, acid jazz and rock. After another metamorphosis he set in electronic music. Inspired by such greats as Portishead, Dubfire
and Lutzenkirchen, Deas' melting pot of ideas and cosmopolitan background has seen the Krakow based artist create a sound founded upon an amalgamation of house, techno and progressive sounds. Following this path, Particles now introduces Deas' new work "Freon", including a remix from Maltese icon, Deepfunk.
An accomplished DJ as well as production artist, Deas has provided sets that encompass the gamut of electronic dance genres, leading to a rare combination of "creativity and originality" that has left an indelible stamp upon its audience. As a producer, a catalogue of leading imprints has borne the Deas name including Baroque, Nueva and Bosphorus Underground. Moreover, the Secret Room label forged by the native Greek has become a platform for his own work while also featuring icons of the techno genre including Pig & Dan and Roland Clark. 2013's "The Yellow Dragon" EP provided a scintillating debut for Particles with further remixes from David
Granha and Anthony Yarranton, and now, Deas follows up a remix of Tuxedo earlier in 2014 with new offering "Freon".
Redolent in sumptuous bouncing bass, trademark spot effects litter the stereo spectrum, carving out rhythmic patterns alongside distinctive techno beats. Pitched in aggressive fashion throughout, the addition of a pulsating pad that rises and falls in unison with multi-faceted layers, Deas' "Freon" is full of intrigue and tension.
Born and raised on the Mediterranean island of Malta, Malcolm Abdilla has forged a considerable reputation for himself under his Deepfunk production moniker. Early experimentations in music with "any piece of electronic equipment" he could lay his hands upon, meant Deepfunk's debut, "Spirits
" EP in 2007, laid the foundations for a host of subsequent releases to feature on some of the most important underground dance labels. Stripped, microCastle, Mesmeric and Replug have all featured Deepfunk's work leading to support from the luminaries within the industry including Charlie May, Guy J and Henry Saiz. Running the celebrated SIXTYSENVENSUNS imprint has further extended Deepfunk's notoriety among the musical elite, featuring such celebrated artists as Sahar Z and Guy Mantzur while also providing a platform for him to launch the versatile "Imagination Creates Reality" album in August 2014.
A recognised DJ playing alongside the likes of James
Holden, John Digweed
and Nick Warren, Deepfunk's debut for Particles in the shape of a 2013 remix of Uvo's "When I Start to Forget", is now followed by a unique interpretation of "Freon". Cleverly capturing the essence of Deas' original, a newly worked bass line, sympathetic to the original, delivers a beautifully worked groove that drives effortlessly forward, accompanied by a lilting percussive groove. The sweeping pitched effects of the original are in full evidence, cleverly immersed in a swathe of additional production material that perfectly illustrates Deas' continued appeal to the underground dance community.
