Self Egg - DKMNTL X PATTA 07
release date: 2 August 17
** Only available in combination with the Dekmantel x Patta 2017 Tracksuit **
Proving time and again to have an aptitude for unearthing the best in underground talent, Dekmantel introduces new Dutch talent Self Egg to the music continuum. The new, and yet reclusive, electro-styled wunderkind from Rotterdam, delivers an EP that touches upon the styles of such classic music as Drexciya, whilst bringing the music to a yet, modern styling. Featuring Jameszoo, who brought that talent of Self Egg to Dekmantel’s awareness, the EP is a hybrid collection of avant-gardist electro, and retro-futurism, that sits neatly within the label’s ever-expanding aesthetic.
Rotterdam's Self Egg is the latest in Dekmantel’s musical fortitude. From his humble background, the reclusive 20 something year-old self-made- producer brings very little in regards to identity, but more than enough in musical propensity. Having a modest background working in repairs, with parents obsessed with radio technology, the withdrawn producer states the record was made solely with a 'computer and microphone'. With an EP of exquisite, offbeat electro, and hard-boiled jams, the young Dutchman touches upon the fortitudes of early electro greats, while bringing an exquisite knack of production know-how to this excellently informed EP.
Having met with Dutch, electronic-jazz, wonderstar producer Jameszoo – with whom he collaborated on the track 'Blind' – Self Egg was then referred to the Dekmantel team, who subsequently went on to sign the debut EP. "I met Mitchel (Jameszoo) in Croatia at Selectors," states Self Egg. "We stayed in contact afterwards. I sent him some stuff over that I was making, then after a few emails he sent me back some stuff he recorded on what now is 'Blind'."
Title track 'Cold', is a mild, lo-pass filter driver, while 'Blind' evokes sonic imagery of classic 'The Other People Place'. 'Pace', is an analogue machine, progressive club track. Meanwhile 'Dose' touches upon that wonderful, vocal, popcorn-like, electro jazz that Self Egg has begun to characterise his style with. Such clear musical talent shows that Self Egg is yet another cracking talent to get egg-cited about. Whoever he may be.
