Oneven explores the deeper side of minimal techno in 'Smelt'

Andrew Visser a.k.a. Oneven is a Dutch/British producer who’s output over the last couple of years has primarily been dominated by his ambient works which have ranged from the deeply diaphanous to a stereo spectrum of sci-fi splendour. Some of his explorations have been extremely cinematic and wouldn’t be out of place on a Kubrick soundtrack. This time however Visser goes in a different direction and ventures into the 4/4 universe with ‘Smelt’. 

Starting off with a compressed thumping kick which sets the tone of for an infectious groove that starts to pull us in. Gradually we are introduced to deeper more introspective sounds that submerge us into a deep minimal track that sustains it’s groove throughout. Smelt offers a reliable take on deeper minimal and is perfect for building atmosphere in any warm up set.

Eelke Kleijn releases title track from upcoming album- 'Moments of Clarity'

The multi-talented multi-instrumentalist Eelke Kleijn strikes again with a euphoric slice of set-ending deep house. But to simply say the track is a great example of the genre would be a bit of an understatement, as ‘Moments of Clarity’ is an eclectic mix of styles and aesthetics. Sure, one can hear some deep house sensibilities, but upon a closer listen it’s apparent that this production skillfully combines elements of downtempo, ambient, house and even breaks.

Regardless of the classification, one thing is for sure, this track provides the perfect bit of introspection suited so well to the end of a set. As Kleijn elucidates “‘Moments of Clarity’ is the kind of track I would play right at the end of my set. Imagine playing it at sunrise after a long intense night. That’s how I envisioned the track while working on it.”

’Moments of Clarity’ serves as the third single and title track from his much anticipated, upcoming third album set to release this fall. Landing on his own ‘Days like Nights’ label, the in-demand dutchman continues to balance his duties as a producer, DJ, soundtrack composer and label head with an eye on an increasingly bright future ahead.
