DAVI – The Gates of Babylon [Rebellion]
DAVI’s new EP sits somewhere between deep and tech house with it’s deep and ambient synths, spacious sound, and low-bass. The percussion on the other hand takes a backseat to the rest of the synths and at some points, does feel like it could have used a bit more of a focus. The EP also most definitely takes certain elements of middle eastern music and brings it into the dance music realm. In the namesake track, DAVI uses a very mysterious and dark sound to create a really interesting and layered track. Through some good headphones or speakers, there are a lot of different elements to pick out and the production value is very good. That being said, the second song is almost the exact same thing. Both of these tracks almost identical and although there are certain elements to be picked out in Eclipse that create a different effect, I wouldn’t say that it’s worth buying both. Give each a listen, decide which you like, and get that one.
