Reset The World, Not This Record
Diass the amazingly talented Bulgarian, is back with a vengeance since working on music from the age of 12. His newest album titled, “Reset The World”, includes 8 solo tracks and 5 collaborations with Diva Vocal, Michael Fleming, The New Citizen & Viara Atova. Already having been released on the Italian label, 303Lovers, the brainchild of Manuel De La Mare, Alex Kenji and Luigi Rocca.
This album is a series of fortunate events. It is a non stop BANGER of a release. Such incredibly dark, bass orientated Tech House that just leaves your head bobbing away with a hard-core duck pout. At such a young age, the innovation and technique in production this chap possesses is unadulterated talent.
The journey that Diass takes you on is incredible. It’s almost like the evolution of music from melodic Deep House to a dirtier and more underground Tech House vibe. Its grimy, it enables your mind to be transported to an outdoor festival or indoor club with the speakers being your altar of worship. There was something so mysteriously beautiful about this album. It has all the makings of being a ‘go to’ record for any DJ to chart and play any of the tunes from it! Already having received support from Data Transmission, Format B, Global Dance Sessions to name a few, this release is a testament to how music should be used as a weapon in changing things in a musical way.
From his collaboration with Luigi Rocca titled, ‘Pyramind” to ‘Nothing’ with Manuel De La Mare, every single track on this album is dance, play and listen worthy music that Diass produces.
The vocal samples used in ‘Lipstick’, however robotic sounding they are, coupled with the female tone, and synths so slick are a benchmark with originality. The drop in this, gives off the tribal Tech House vibe that hasn’t heard been in a while, with the crispness and clean-cut production being a showcase of his versatility.
My personal favourite, the album titled track, “Reset The World” has an elusive vibe that is just screaming to be played loud. If you’re smart enough to have bought this album already, be warned that it sets the bar high in Tech House.
Lucky are those that shall be present for the album release that is happening as a lounge party in one of the worlds best clubs Yalta, Sofia.
This entire record is a total 5/5. Not one track faulted. Recommended for all the boys that like playing the deep, dark, mysterious, melodic, underground, grimy, and any other adjective you want to use to describe a warehouse (dingy, sweat inducing, marathon dancing sessions) record feel.
