Following acclaimed first album last year, DopeGems is back with a new EP before a new album planned for fall 2015. DopeGems is this instrumental funk band with a vibraphone, paying due to Bobbie Hutcherson, Johnny Lytle or Roy Ayers. They only play covers of Dope and unknown funk tracks or ballads like this 7inch
His hypnotizing sound lures in between the first waves of Detroit Techno and the finer bits of contemporary techno. He puts melody above power, depth over effect but proofs to maintain floor heat over and over again. Being one of the participators of the imprint Deniro sits right at the source and knows his home! Be on the look out at your favorite dealer for lushness in silk-screened covers.
Comes in a white on black silk-screened outer sleeve, designed by Ruben Verkuylen.
Tracks 2 and 3 for me. Puts me in the same realm of earlier future sounds from the 90's.
