makam returns to dekmantel records with his first full-length album for the amsterdam based label. blankens ongoing search for fresh sounds, textures and rhythms has lead him to than sadet, a gorgeous piece of work that takes his sound into new directions. that sadet displays a refinement of makams sound. the music is highly tactile, with an emphasis on the surroundings of the environment in which it was created. blanken: than sadet is a secluded beach on an island in thailand. a mysterious atmosphere haunts it. its windy and the weather is always a bit worse compared to the rest of the isle. there are many cliffs and you cant swim because the waves are too high. four years ago i visited than sadet for the first time and ive been coming back ever since. at one point i decided to bring my studio equipment. for a week, i dedicated my days to making music. those sketches formed the basis of the album.
makam with a taste of things to come as he flips the sound pallete for his latest 12- on dekmantel. housed in a plastic outer sleeve with postcard insert. tip! dekmantel say- we re rubbing our hands together gleefully for this one: longtime family member makam will return to dkmntl records with a full-length album later this year. guy blanken s ongoing search for new sounds, textures and rhythms has lead him to than sadet, a stunning piece of work thats like nothing you ve heard from the the hague based producer before. we have known this ultra-talented chap for years, but its fair to say than sadet is his most impressive and distinctive work to date. this sampler is a sneak peek into what is about to be an absolute label highlight, a prelude to the new makam sound. riding high is a lush, isolee-esque lengthy house jam, and the blissful ambient ride backed up by tropical birds than sadet gives more insight into the new territories blanken has been digging into. you ain t heard nothin yet. -

makam what ya doing: the hague based producer makam definitely didnt see jack play, simply because hes waaaay to young to be bragging about the history of house music. nevertheless mister guy blanken delivers a stunning anthem in the best of warehouse and music box traditions. keep those 909 rim shots coming please, but make way for the irresistible breakdown. makam what ya doing (funkineven) more 909 sweetness comes from london based steven julien aka eglo-related vintage fetishist funkineven. while treating the original with respect, he adds some analogue acid dirt to it. in an everything but subtle way, that is. peak time stuff!
after his stunning debut on soweso 001, makam now returns with his hide you ep. a three tracker, with each track a character of its own. the title track hide you on a1 is a big club banger. a perfect example of simplicity and effectiveness. a2 brings us thank you a dirty and funky house affair that has proven to be a perfect last record of a great party. b2 hide and seek is a signature makam track with its strong filter groove and freaky effects. a timeless ep that we are proud to present
