Debukas follows up his two critically acclaimed EP's with another superb emission of underground electronics with a pop sensibility. His way of approaching electronic music been compared to the likes of John Talabot, Caribou and Hot Chip in the way he mixes his pop and underground influences.
And with a history that ranges from top of the pops appearances to twisted Detroit electro and with a grounding in classic house and techno, he's suitably placed to explore such wide ranging influences from Arthur Russell to Yello to Model 500.
People might wear their analogue credentials on their sleeves these days, but for Debukas the music making process has always featured miles of wires, unreliable synths and hardware drum machines, which can all be seen on his youtube tribute videos. He also brings this same process to his original material, mixing his voice with his machines during long jam sessions which form the basis of his music.
Reach Out Feel is one of his more club ready tracks, exploring his housier leanings, but retaining the trademark Debukas musicality . It comes with a very handy acapella of Reach Out Feel.
Love Plant cuts up his vocals into a signature leftfield house groove and builds up to a more jackin' finale.
Satellite is one of his most beautiful laid-back tracks with the nearest thing to a full vocal we can expect from him, the way he extracts real emotion from his synths on this track is breathtaking.
