The latest addition to the crazy world of IDM music is none other than Neon Jungle enthusiast Deplicant or Danny Agoston as he’s known to his friends and family. Deplicant sets out to defy the codes and conventions of IDM or EDM music; they’re virtually the same.. *hides from electronic music fan base for eternity*.
How does aim to do this? Well, his new track ‘14/40’ is an excellent portrayal of avant garde music, that is filled with both passion and intricacy that brings a real ‘Daft Punk’ feel to the overall piece.
How does it sound?
The introduction is theatrical. The track’s white noise and risers slowly relax your mind before what is to come. Moreover, right from the start the mix is very well balanced and provides a stereo sound that has excellent clarity.
Delving deeper into track, its structure is set out fairly conventionally. But unlike most tracks of its kind, it paints a picture, which is a fantastic way to keep the listener intrigued and engaged. The main section (around 30-40 seconds in) introduces a main lead, which provides depth to the mix, whilst also giving it an 80’s theme. The synths used throughout have clear influences, and this was cleared up by the man himself when he stated his influences are electro-futurists Jean-Michel Jarre, Vangelis, Justice and Jon Hopkin. Overall, this track would fit perfectly in movies such as Tron and Blade Runner (both old and new version’s people.. everyone loves a classic right?!)
Deplicant really has hit the ground (blade) running with this track, and we really hope this is the start of something special. Electronic music is missing this niche, and we’re excited to see where it leads!
