Herzblut are happy to announce the much anticipated return of Dapayk Solo to the label for the first time since his wildly popular 2011 Bevita release. His latest work, The Cloudbreaker, is somewhat of a curveball release from the label, but one that Herzblut boss and huge fan, Stephan Bodzin, wasn't about to turn down.
Dapayk Solo's productions have always had that little something 'extra'. Undefinable, they sit comfortably between genres. Raw power is brilliantly and often uniquely, matched with melodic beauty to produce music that sits sweetly with all. An enviable skill indeed and one that has been honed over time. His earliest work was rooted in Drum & Bass, yet over time and throughout the 2000's, Dapayk expanded his sound and musical reach. With three hugely successful albums and an archive of single releases under his belt, the Mo’s Ferry Productions boss is as popular as ever.
His love of bass is again evident in The Cloudbreaker as it kicks off the EP with an injection of bottom-end bump. Powered by its scything synth line, Solo combines uncompromising German dynamism with an almost San Fran loafing groove. Synths and bass combine with great effect again on Uptight, countering its title with wonderfully relaxed and flowing groove. Finally Solo leads on a mysterious and beautiful Ivory laden march on Am Langen Ende. A perfect finale to a perfect EP.
