As in every year, the unique sound of Deeperfect loudly echoes in the streets of Amsterdam during its huge, festive "Amsterdam Dance Event", in this context, who is better than the chief himself, Stefano Noferini, in representing the label's sound?
"Stefano Noferini presents Club Edition ADE 2016" is a monumental release consisted of 27 unreleased, brand new tracks, and one long continuos mix binding them together. Noferini, selecting the tracks himself, is also the one patching them all together in a masterful demonstration of what magic can be extracted out of this joyful spring of sounds.
Most of the 27 tracks loyally reflect the label's current sound signature: a careful minimal House flavoured with tribal elements. A wide selection and application of percussion tools, with a dominant presence of various claps and cowbells, and the famous Deeperfect punchy kick designs. However, some of the other jewels in this box perhaps reveal something about the future sound of the label: an energetic, groove-loaded, peak-time materials that function as ultimate dance floor destroyers.
All together, this release is a must-have. It encapsulates a year's work of one of the world's most important labels, and is a delightful musical journey for any fan of electronic music.
