D Flect lands on Detached Audio
Detached Audio welcomes Tesseract Recordings‘ head honcho D Flect for his debut EP on the imprint. Having previously appeared on the label with a free download which charted at #6 on the Hypeddit Top 100 Drum & Bass tracks, this talented artist displays his jazz-inspired liquid sound over three tracks, while recruiting Detached Audio boss K2T for a remix of his older piece for us.
Up first is our premiere ‘Petrichor’. D Flect uses ambient soundscapes and a delicate piano line to pave the way for a gorgeous, grooving track which packs a surprising amount of weight with its rumbling bassline.
‘Memory’ comes next, which sees D Flect taking a deeper approach to his sound. Jazzy saxophones take the lead in this stripped back, hypnotic track, with atmospheric soundscapes taking the listener away.
The third track in this project is the title track, ‘Empty Places’. A gentle piano line is coupled with a 1920s-esque vocal that instantly captivates. Fleeting Amen fills through the track add moments of tension, contrasting perfectly with the peaceful vibe of the track.
Finally, label boss K2T returns after his critically acclaimed debut album to remix ‘Any Place on Earth‘, the free download D Flect released with them. By transforming the serene original into a bouncier affair with gliding basslines and reworked piano hooks, K2T brings us an earworm of a remix, guaranteed to get stuck in our heads.
The ‘Empty Places’ EP is D Flect‘s first EP in 5 years’ time, and he has certainly brought about a cohesive body of work which works both as individual products, and as a fully fledged project.
