Daniel Falkenberg – Two Faces EP

Daniel Falkenberg returns to Swings Records for his second outing on the label. After a fantastic debut with ‘We Are All Dancing’ – a collaboration with label head Jean Claude Ades – Daniel goes solo for his brand new Two Faces EP, a perfect summation of his current leanings towards the nu disco of the spectrum. This new EP is comprised four tracks, all of which encompass a slick, professional approach both in terms of the production levels, attention to detail and the level of depth and emotion in each composition.

On the ‘Two Face’ EP, Daniel demonstrates his deft touch with four great pieces of contemporary electronic music. With ‘Feel You’ Falkenberg cultivates a dreamy, textured soundscape that revolves around a easy-going, though melodramatic bassline.

‘Sharing Love’ continues the mood of ‘Feel You’ with emotive use of string instruments and ethereal synth work creating a hypnotic base over which he lays a male vocal.

‘Inside You’ picks up the pace a little, with old school sensibilities – particularly in its high-pitched bleeps that dance around the bouncing bass. Delicate synths exude a melancholy atmosphere throughout.

Finally, ‘Donnervögel’ (German for thunderbird) ft. Roman Libbertz, plays the EP out in style. If the first three tracks were emotional, you haven’t heard anything yet. A spoken word sample by Roman Libbertz plays out in the background as tribal percussion underpins an array of lush strings, that will give even the most heartless of listeners a lump in their throat. A fitting close to an accomplished EP.

Watch out for more from Daniel Falkenberg, a rising talent with his eye on reaching the top and beyond.
