The producer from Cologne of Rafael Da Cruz debuted last year for the veteran and prestigious imprint from Munich of Compost Records with the ‘Renaissance EP’ inside the Compost Black Label series, the reference #118 of this series and included remixes from Cosmic Cowboys, The Black 80s and David Hasert, a debut EP in which Rafael Da Cruz gives out his way to understanding the Deep House, which received critical acclaim and now a year after that debut, returns to the series of Compost Black Label, with the reference #130, with a new EP, ‘Rex EP’, an EP that comes after a tour from India, Thailand and South America, and that shows his quality when composing, a new cut that is complemented with 2 remixes, first with the German producer of André Lodemann, with more than 10 years in the music scene, and which this year has released new EP for the prestigious label of Innervisions, and the second remix, with another veteran German producer, Edgar Peng aka RAS aka Robert Galic, with recent EPs for labels such as URSL or Tonkind.
This Compost Black Label #130 in the german label of Compost Records starring with Rafael Da Cruz and opens with the original mix of ‘Rex’ with 9 minutes of dark atmospheres, melodies floating on in the environment, a bassline that rides incessantly in the midst of darkness, making its way in the middle of the mystery, a percussion that mark the rhythm and the way to follow with a careful development of the same which it hypnotizes and captivates.
For remixes, first with André Lodemann, slightly raising the tempo, and adding sounds something more raw and forceful in the beginning of the remix, to go subsequently adopting magical melodies that will develop in epic form. For his part, Edgar Peng, offers a most magical remix, dreamy synths that are created delicate atmospheres, to daydream, to let yourself be carried away by the music, and enjoy the trip.
