Big Apple DJ/producer Serge Devant continues to evolve his sound with each new release. After collaborating with Damiano on the sprawling deep-house vocal cut “Fearing Love” featuring Camille Safiya issued on Jamie Jones and Lee Foss’ new label Emerald City, Devant makes his debut appearance on Crosstown Rebels‘ off-shoot label Rebellion.
His latest EP was inspired by a recent trip to Thailand. During the trek Devant captured field recordings of everything from a gong meditation to sounds of a rainy night in the jungle, with those sonics adding a captivating layer to his sound.
Devant’s musical epiphany can be heard on “The Way You Move,” a sinewy cut featuring meticulously crafted percussion, which we’re extremely pleased to world premiere. The track’s meditative vocal fosters a hypnotic vibe on the bare-bones minimal track.
Here’s hoping travel continues to inspire Devant’s work.
Serge Devant’s “The Way You Move”/”Intentions” EP is released June 21 on Rebellion.
