Damon Bell - Stand By Me

Aug. 8, 2016

California-based producer Damon Bell could not find a  more suitable home for his new 12” than Croatian label  Burek. It’s his first one since “Blues For The Libyan” LP  released in 2015. for Deepblak, and it sounds as if the  time off was well spent.

Two words that perfectly describe this record are “rich”  and  “colourful”, and the description is equally applicable  to all  three cuts.

“Stand By Me” is a synth-heavy piece built around the interplay between track’s rougher sounds and big lush pads. On the flipside, “Life” is slightly faster and more direct, with a wonderful guitar part that circles around the main theme throughout the most of the track. Similarly mannered, but slightly more intense - “Transatlantic Journey? We Been There!” is the last piece and features an infectious groove with lead synth piercing through layers of delicate arpeggios playing in the background.

All in all, it feels good to have Damon in the team. We hope you'll enjoy this record.
