Oliver is a producer that needs little by way of introduction. Over the last 15 years his reputation as a producer and DJ has been driven forward by his own dedicated passion, a slew of unforgiving releases, a diverse track selection and an even more uncanny ability to mix.
On his new release, Locked, Deutschmann presents a three-tracker with that hypnotic, peak-time attitude in his sights. Gravely brooding, EP opener "Locked" is a heads-down techno anthem which slowly unfurls into a seven minute hi-hat workout which still manages still to cut a deep groove. Track two, "Plus" delves deeper into his more minimal leanings as he paces himself into the swelling, shapeshifting modus that the track belies.
If you were a Dekmantel in 2016 you might've heard Jeff Mills drop upcoming producer, Setaoc Mass, in his signature interstellar take-off style set. For those confined to headphones and home sound-systems, Setaoc has been on the rise via labels including Work Them, Animal Farm and Len Faki's Figure and here he finds a special home for his own discordant re-take of "Plus."
The mission statement of Caduceus Records continues. You will hear this on dancefloors. At 3am. Don't go home.. Not just yet..
