DTM Recordings return with a 2 tracker from Deploy
DTM Recordings has been quiet over the last year with its founder, Deploy, working on other projects. It’s patently obvious that he has been refining a razor sharp production style, as demonstrated in his latest release.
DTM Recordings return with a soulful Drum & Bass sound, from Deploy as he serves up an impeccable new 2-track single.
This release sees Deploy take a different direction from previous releases on his label. Listening to his latest tracks you can hear a distinct move towards this sound with the addition of Dylan Wilde’s soulful vocals. This is confirmed by Deploy in his own words about the title track ‘Show Them Love’:
“This single for the re-launch of DTM Recordings is about moving on, drawing a line under the past but with reflection and appreciation. About doing what’s right for yourself even if it’s going against the grain. It also represents a shift from past music I’ve released on the label and going back to melodic songwriting – something I’ve never stopped experimenting with. This is a new phase for myself and the label and I’m excited to share it on DTM.” – Deploy
The intro for ‘Show Them Love’ hears the piano and guitar laced together to form a deep, mellow feel before the combination of emotive vocal harmonies with rich percussion and expansive amen snare trails kicks in. The bassline moves along nicely with the vocal-like synths which give this track a distinct ethereal feel. Deploy’s heartfelt lyrics take this track to the next level of soulful drum and bass – although if vocals aren’t your thing there is an instrumental version to include all deep dnb lovers.
‘Hope’ is the b-side of this single and it compliments it well with its female vocal sample and spacious sound experimenting with a minimal groove. Deploy doesn’t fill out every frequency possible but lets the track breathe whilst evoking feeling and emotion. This is a track that takes you on a journey, it compels you to stay with it as it builds and progresses which is a refreshing change from the instant gratification we are used to – and while the chunky sub-bass may tip its hat to the jungle era the guitar hook will transport you to a place of beaches and palm trees.
Deploy is bringing his sound home with multiple releases lined up for the next year on DTM Recordings. This is definitely a label to keep your ears open for.
