The Deviate series from Swerve Digital returns with its third volume compilation to bring you ten fantastic diverse and exceptional original tracks from new and established talented producers around the world including Aaron Lewis, Brad Hill, Folii, Franky Wah, HAYNES, Kieren Lythgow, Morenno, Pavzo, Sebastian and Vanson.
Kicking things off with Aaron Lewis's Navigation, his production sets the scene for the release as it showcases a beautiful atmospheric and euphoric body of sound amalgamated with a strong, deep rolling moody Tech House sound. Thus the name of the release, we deviate to another style and sound as Brad Hill's Acid Love low-down, acidic and bubbly basslines are set to vibrate and bounce your body with its immensely catchy melodies and sub-rhythms. Keeping on the vibes of low-down sub-rhythms, Folii's Whack A Mule contains this continuous muted plucky driving bassline throughout encompassing the openness and spaciousness around it with luxurious ride patterns, widespread white-noise hits and clever synth sounds.
Franky Wah takes no prisoners with his production Devil's Whisper. Its sinister sounding name encapsulates exactly the sound of the track as its dark melodic synth lines playing over the reverberated haunting vocals drops back into a colossal earth-shattering bassline pattern. HAYNES's Vertigonous is no exception either as its mischievous vocal sample over the dynamic and forceful bassline sounds, alongside the punchiness of the distorted kick sounds makes this track an absolute weapon. Kieren Lythgow's Deeper takes things down a deeper avenue with a delightfully enticing, driving, raw and immersive bassline and a catchy vocal hook.
New kid on the block Morenno delivers an absolute weapon entitled The Flow, a primal, barbaric Tech House track that contains fierce synth sounds, a powerful bassline and an insanely tense and dramatic breakdown. Pavzo's Breakfast Club is no tune to wake up to, as its energetic percussive patterns and commanding bass rhythms will keep you raving till the early hours of the morning. Sebastian's Presence picks up the funk and rhythm with its soulful vocal samples and sound effect hits, and also features crazy melodic synths and a delirious bassline with round the bend synths in the breakdown. Vanson closes the compilation with I Like That, high-octane funk and a hard tech power punch to its mix and low-end sound.
