It’s only early July, but 2013 has already proven to be a landmark year for production/DJ duo Deep’a & Biri. With a couple of their tracks being released on Transmat Records and appearing on Derrick May’s mix compilations on the one hand, while on the other, getting signed to DJ Hell’s International DJ Gigolo Records, where they released a single in April and have a full album forthcoming mid-September – it seems that all corners of the techno diaspora are ready to catch up on their sound.
But it doesn’t stop there, as they now launch their own Tel-Aviv based label, Black Crow. With a successful series of parties operating under the same name, bringing to Tel-Aviv a tasteful selection of the world’s top class techno DJ’s and live acts, Black Crow, the label, is set to counter-match this high standard with its musical output.
Inaugurating the label is the imminent release of “Redshift”, produced in collaboration with their long-time partner and excellent producer on his own right, Gene. “Redshift” has the signature Deep’a & Biri sound, a pumping Detroit-indebted roller, with shout snippets riding in & out the keys-led workout. Keeping it in the Mediterranean, Greek producer Argy provides the remix, accenting the baseline and adding a spoken vocal that takes “Redshift” all the way to Chicago. Rounding off the package is “Blueshift”, which demonstrates the team’s melodic tendencies, with its more spatial arrangement perfect for those deep space moments.
