Review – Danny Oliveira releases Faraya EP

Artist: Danny Oliveira
Title: Faraya EP
Label: Aequivalenz Recordings
Released: 24/08/2015
Genre: Minimal

A leading DJ/Producer in the Brazilian music scene, Danny Oliveira has already established major tones in the circuit with releases on microCastle, In Charge Records and Chapter 24. Following up fast on the musical track, Aequivalenz Recordings snaps up Oliveira’s single “Faraya” in two different versions and this EP, is well on it’s way to an exciting August release on Hasan Mogol’s fantastic doing good imprint.

The first version “Faraya” (Uphill Mix) packs plenty of smooth deepness not really associated with the style in question. Thudding bass jars, and squelchy percussive flutters, and ominous brooding chord play in the back ground, makes this version ethereal and fuming. Although the outcome will be more drifting in to tranquil moves than dance floor mayhem. There’s loads of rise and fall to sink in to and furthermore, fasten the brains towards a long spacey corridor, that warrants no return.

Side B harks out the Downhill Mix in rose tinged fashion, it’s a surprise, as Danny takes another route slightly different in pace and the kicks get snappy and yet maintaining the original’s ebb and flow. The mix, however, is far more bright-light and awake, no doubt due to the fact that he layers on new sounds like a run of twinkling cocktail glass licks. Coupled with a slow-building percussive swagger, this track eventually reveals itself as a suave and slow, more deep house hit. Simple but elegant sounds on both sides should see this EP doing good overall, anywhere.
