South Africa’s Deano debuts on Hardgroove. Comprising five originals and a remix from techno artist Mark Broom, ‘Paleo’ finds DJ/producer and Knowledge label boss Deano in form.
Techno is on the menu from the off with ‘Epoch’, ‘Venus Of Tan-Tan’ and ‘Terra Amata’ all showing a touch when it comes to teasing grooves into possible peak time monoliths.
The second half of ‘Paleo’ is ‘The Oldowan’, a cut that unfurls using repetition that aims to hammer the dancefloor. Broom’s remix snips away at the original and adds screw-face low-end and percussive guts before Deano’s ‘The Oldowan V2’ sees the producer mangle the original into a filtered track.
