DESCRIPTION

The latest release from DEEWEE, the record label run by Soulwax/2manydjs’ David and Stephen Dewaele, comes from Phillipi & Rodrigo. ‘Paciencia’ is the Brazilian duo’s 9-track debut album, recorded, produced and mixed at Studio DEEWEE in Gent.

This longplayer follows Phillipi & Rodrigo’s single of the same name; released in November last year, ‘Paciencia’ (single) was backed with a DEEWEEDUB. The release picked up plaudits from Lauren Laverne on BBC6 Music, Dazed & Confused, Mixmag, DJ Mag, Rinse France, Acid Stag, and a host of DJs including Âme, Mano Le Tough, Disclosure, Applescal, Elliot Adamson, nd_baumecker, Tiga, Joe Goddard, Citizenn, DJ T., Black Coffee, Carl Craig, and more. All vinyl copies sold out within 3 weeks.

Described by David and Stephen as sounding “like Stereolab in 2018 singing in Portuguese while a Batacuda band performs at a Brazilian beach techno party”, ‘Paciencia’ (album) begins with ‘Magnetico’, a languid, dubby start, that opens proceedings before the upbeat, organ-heavy psychedelic pop of ‘Retrogrado’. The melancholic ‘Minas’ (complete with beautiful piano, strings, and birdsong), is the first straight dance cut on the album, a torch song, sung, like the rest of the album, in Portuguese.

Previous singles, ‘Mantra’, (their second release alongside ’New Beach’ on DEEWEE017), and the equally acclaimed ‘Karma’ (released with ’Gueto De Gent’ as DEEWEE010) are also included. ‘Barberella’ and ‘Rotina’ show the depth and width to Phillipi & Rodrigo’s sound, before the album shifts gear with the slow techno groove of ‘Face’, and ‘Paciencia’ (single) closes the album with 5 minutes of hypnotic brilliance.
