Dalmata Daniel continue with their inspired pairing of sonics and personalities on their seventh release (1st part of their split series) to date courtesy of Dutch producer Betonkust and Budapest-based hardware techno fiend Új Bála. As much as both differ in their geographical roots – Holland and Hungary. respectively. at first glance (or listen). their sound also ventures into different sonic territories. 1080p and Pinkman-affiliate Betonkust delivers vintage-tinged electronics – most prominently on his -Ferenc s Escape- – while Új Bála digs deeper into the basement and unravels his analogue acid and badass beats. His -The Piggy-Bank Deal- even touches upon oriental flavours. On the other hand. the music on this EP is buoyant and joyful. a welcome antidote to the gloom and doom that s not only been prevalent in the world around us. but also in too much music of the last few years.
