Degiheugi - Dancing Chords & Fireflies [CD]
Catalogue No.: XRPCD2103
Release Date: 7th May 2021
From the cover of Dancing chords and fireflies, we sense that our wait will be rewarded: a kind of digital origami, the artwork very pleasantly caresses the eye ... The beatmaker's previous albums told a story, this one is no exception to the rule. The album opens with a "what's up?" »Aptly. Yes, after two years of silence, it was time to give another news, and the man is in good shape without a doubt! Degi surprises us while remaining himself, creator of magical atmospheres and unparalleled sound director, supported here by a world-class cast. We will note the triple participation of Miscellaneous, the soft voice of Astrid Van Peeterssen, the rocky flow of the Canadian Andree and especially the featuring of Pierre the Motionless and Brzowski on the superb "Embers". 21 tracks, oscillating between jazz, hip hop and electro, which paint a colorful, soft, addicting world full of flavors. The "Degiheugi touch" is this little thing, melancholy and punchy at the same time, that differentiates him from Wax Tailor (more general public) and Doctor Flake (colder), to whom he is often compared. Broken Symphony was his major album, it will now be necessary to reckon with Dancing chords…, a perfect synthesis of the Degiheugien universe!
