Bandana - DKMNTL x PATTA
release date: 2 August 17
Dekmantel once again collaborates with streetwear label Patta for their 2017 collection. This year's collection consists of five pieces and two EPs, including a tracksuit, a hoodie, a waist bag, a cap, a bandana (designed by Young Marco) and releases by Self-Egg and GE-OLOGY. The exclusive items feature various graphic prints and co-branding from both parties.
As said above, Dekmantel brings two new debuts on board: the ever mysterious and cracking talent Self-Egg and Patta's longtime friend GE-OLOGY. First up in the series is Self-Egg's contribution, that touches upon the styles of such classic music as Drexciya, whilst bringing the music to a yet, modern styling. 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 four-tracker.
On the 8th collab EP it's GE-OLOGY debuting, who takes his panoptic style beyond what we currently know. 'Dance in Retrograde' stomps old-school house music traits, with 808-kicks, and a spiritual foray into a soulful, cosmic trance. On the flipside, 'Re-Fingered with Love' is a solid deep-burner with a sensual piano hook, and serves as a cover of the Salsoul disco-classic 'Thousand Finger Man' by the legendary Cuban percussionist, Candido.
Please note that the vinyl releases will only be an exclusive gift when one buys a tracksuit. The EPs are not for sale.
