Nikita Peredelskiy aka Peredel, is the owner of a discography that’s quickly become revered in electronic circles for its unique ability to conjure up genuinely thrilling dancefloor-focused cuts. On his latest, he brilliantly serves up more of the same, this time on his UFO Sound label. Featuring no less than five killer records, this is a release that we’ll surely come back to long after 2020 has drawn to a close.
Opening the release is the sounds of Whisper. Featuring a killer, pitched-down female vocal, it’s bouncing baseline showcases a fiercely effective vibe that signals much more of what’s to come. An early highlight for sure. Elsewhere, Playing on Electricity demonstrated the producer’s knack for more deep house styled sounds. Think the best days of David August and Dynamic and you’re on the right path.
Title track Underwater goes deep in search of its kicks, always displaying a vibe that’s purely dancefloor focused. Mermaid continues on a similar nautical theme, with this one more for the melodic techno heads. Runo is the most driving of the bunch, and is a real winner. Top work all round from a producer whose sounds very much deserve to be heard.
