This week’s capsule of Synthesizer Zen, to carry you into the weekend, comes from a look at the Korg DDM 100 (which isn’t great, but was my first drum machine, so I have a soft sport for it!)

Yippee kiyay Mr. Falcon! There’s some sweet Deep House in town! Just released on Nurvous Records is the début single from Mr. Falcon, a duo consisting of French Express co-founder Blueshift and fellow Philadelphia resident Ily. The single is called Landing Lights which, once you hear the track, seems quite fitting and comes equipped with a reMix from Rhythm Operator.
Landing Lights deftly mixes in some slick 80s lead lines into an undulating Deep House groove. Pulsating, almost Italo, synths craft out a Sci-Fi warehouse vibe from punchy bass and haunting pads. Riding a booming kick drum, the robotic dance hits hard, infecting your brain with a Euro meets Chicago collision will leave you wanting more. We are already eagerly awaiting Mr. Falcon’s next work.

Having pride of place on Eskimo Recordings‘ latest compilation album, The Blue Collection, is Greek SynthWaver come Disco demon NTEIBINT. This track, Never Without You, not only features on the collection, but is also the lead track of his forthcoming EP. It genre spanning four minutes of hazy good times.
Featuring vocals from Stella, Never Without You is a hard beat to pin down. A slo-mo Indie-Dance groove, not quite Disco but getting there, underpins the tune; which is part ElectroPop, part Pop House with a solid authentic Nu-Disco flavour. The prefect track to chill in the sun to, the thick bass and warm synths play perfectly with Stalla’s smokey vocal. Just relax.
