Here comes the second release in our DDE series, this time it will be a 3-track EP and a fresh collaboration between two rising stars from the Budapest scene, CT Kidobó & LAU with an additional remix by Hamburg-based producer L.F.T.
CT Kidobó is known from his debut Exterminador EP on Dalmata Daniel, but he has been making music for years. His sound could be described as experimental and emotional deep electro with dark basslines and detuned patterns on the verge of music and art. His tracks are also heavily influenced by art films, and his music is developed to the extreme, so even the last patterns are right for the songs. His influences range from Mr. Oizo, early Gesaffelstein, the Hacker, Dopplereffekt etc., and since his debut EP, he released tracks on compilation by labels like Crisis, Earth Plates and Exiles.
The other half of this collaboration is LAU. In her musical journey, live act has been given great emphasis from the beginning and she was a former member of Wave Twins duo as well. However for a while she has been making music on her own, DJing, and organizing music workshops. Her first tracks came out on Dalmata Daniel's compilations, but her debut remix track premiered on DDD05 as well.
These two artists started working together in 2019, and although their approach is different with CT Kidobó’s attention to detail and LAU’s more intuitive approach, the process of making music was an easy ride, and it is amazing how their styles complement each other creating crazy soundwaves.
The songs could rather be described as hard hitting electro on the edge of bumping rave as the first track XTC, this one will fire up the dancefloor when we can go again to the clubs or warehouses. Mental Vortex is more serious, no joking, but a groovy ride into the dark side of Electro. Last but not least L.F.T. is connected to this with his classic punky new wave remix of Mental Vortex.
DDE02 comes out on very limited 10inch lathe cut record and numbered risograph print designed by Studio Jetski, and printed by BPZines.
