Title: Chanta EP
Label: New Violence Records
Release: 27th November 2017
Genre: Tech House
Nurturing new talent through the ranks is rapidly becoming one of the hallmarks of New Violence Records. This time we head home to Liverpool and burgeoning talent Ferher. This exciting youngster has already been picked up by Under No Illusion and Yaya and here delivers two slamming numbers tinged with early 90’s inspiration. Adding remix support is fellow Scouser Kinnerman whose rapidly ascending star has seen him land on labels like Elrow, Kaluki, and Glasgow Underground.
Starting with Chanta, energetic drums married to a deep, rolling bassline build the foundations for edgy, nagging synths and chopped up vocals which swirl and swirl upwards to the break. Full of tension and suspense, a top-drawer start to the EP. Next up Kinnerman delivers his interpretation of Chanta. Taking things in tribal infused direction and making full use of the original’s tension, he adds his own bubbling touch to the bassline ensuring maximum impact for the dance floor. Closing things we have One More Time, a deep, old-school inspired track with a nod to a very positive education from the young producer.
All in all a very solid release from Ferher or Danny Domville as we know him here at Decoded Magazine. We believe he is going to have a very good 2018, and we wish him all the best!
