In times of uncertainty, it’s good to know that some things remain as constant and reassuringly excellent as ever. That’s certainly the case when it comes to Dee Montero’s music and his new label Futurescope. Supported by the top tier on radio (Pete Tong) and at club (DJs from Patrice Baumel to Newman and Man Power have remixed his work of late), Dee is now back with the 4th release on his own quality-controlled imprint.
You may remember the sparkling debut single ‘Sapphire’ on the label which featured the super distinctive voice of Shahin Bader, the former vocalist with The Prodigy. With ‘Perpetua’, Dee is in a similar sonic space, exploring a dream-like musical world where his trademark deep house meets mysterious synths and percussion to die for. But as ever, what makes this track fly is a melodic hook that’s guaranteed to get locked into your memory for plenty more seasons to come. It’s a timeless instrumental that echoes around the electronic globe, brimming with positivity.
The EP continues with another seven minute track called ‘Opia’ which treads a slightly darker path to ‘Perpetua’ but keeps Dee’s distinctive production sound to the fore. Custom-built for late nights and early mornings as the sun comes up, it certainly has its sights set on the Balearics.
