Copenhagen label Music For Dreams release yet another brilliant debut album, this time by the Danish duo Dalholt & Langkilde. The album has a wonderful warm summery vibe, with slick smooth production, hypnotic groove baselines, live guitars & vocals.
The sultry French spoken word vocals on opener ‘Charite’, ‘Sur Plus’, ‘Tranquille’ ‘& Je M’appelle Spacy’ certainly channel the spirit of Serge Gainsbourg & Max Berlin which compliment the euro flavour to the overall production of the album.
There is a jam like feel to most of the tracks on the album - The Moonboots faves "Bonne Nuit" and "Doucement" both sounds like a Durutti Column /Vini Reilly session made in Copenhagen.
Demise Ducha provides the vocals on tracks ‘Disco Disco’ & ‘Afrique’. Demise’s ethereal voice brings an almost Cocteau Twins feel to the tracks combined with the sweet African (soukous) guitar licks and floaty bongo rhythms are sure to propel these tracks into balearic classics on the white isle.
The album also features the track ‘Versaire’ with Copenhagen friend Emil Breum (The Swan & The Lake) soft sax tempered with atmospheric synth combine to wonderful soundscape effect, a summery 95 BPM chugger!
After releasing their debut single ‘Charite’ in 2015, and ’Sur Plus’ which featured on last years acclaimed Jockey Club (Ibiza) Sunset Sessions #4 compilation, the duo (Mads & Frederick) have been busy in the studio crafting this debut album to be released on Kenneth Bager’s Music For Dreams label.
Dalholt & Langkilde first met when Frederik came to view a room for rent at Mads' apartment. After five minutes they clicked and were roomies. Mads was already an experienced DJ and Frederik had played at parties with a live band, but neither had any experience making their own music. The first track ‘Charite’ was born in the summer of 2014. Charité was and old idea Mads had, that he would like Frederik to try out ... some first takes later in a gloomy dark basement studio and Charité got its first airplay at Kenneth Bagers radio show at Sonica, Ibiza.
The Duos main goal is to make people relax and enjoy, with or without a balearic sunset ...
