Martin Denev’s "PLASTIC MAGIC"

It’s been a productive year for Martin Denev. The Bali based musician released together with Pete Herbert an EP, a single with American house legend Robert Owens, a vinyl LP and now another EP under his own name. He has really been busy.
Whether behind a stack of synths, DJ decks or the grand piano, Martin moves seamlessly between styles and genres, being an accomplished piano player with miles of festival experience, a full time DJ and an experimental producer when he has the chance.
His latest offering is quite an eclectic four-track selection. The opening one, “Plastic Magic”, is a mixture of Future Boogie, London inspired beats, Nu Jazz chord progressions and Nu Soul vocals, backed up by bouncy Moog bass and the additional drums by Gustu Brahmanta and the electric bass of Doddy Sambodo.
The second track, “We” is a funky house jaunt with an up and fun attitude, jumpy synthesizers, feel-good sounds and true hands-up potential, getting charmingly philosophical on us and with some serious drive in the beats department.
Then we got the Opolopo remix of “We” – his signature Future Funk treatment with rich textures, superb bass lines and master beat making.
The closing track is the Andezzz remix of “Plastic Magic” – a deep house sound, with a somewhat dreamy touch, going into the late hours on the dance floor with eyes wide shut.
Featured throughout the album is the delightful Damaris Dior – a Dutch born, Bali based vocalist with a plethora of different nuances and hues, husky timbre, subtle and soulful, yet undeniably powerful.
All in all, Martin Denev is taking us on another picturesque, musical journey of feel-good sounds, served in an elegant fashion and uncompromising style. Listen to a track right now from the EP, WE.
Enjoy responsibly!
