SVT077 Dapayk & Padberg – Berlin Summer Nights
A couple of months after the release of Sweet Nothings, Dapayk & Padberg are once again treating the vinyl-heads amongst us to a 12” consisting of a sunny selection of the album’s core material, just in time for spring. Kicking off the A-side, ‘Berlin Summer Nights’ is nothing short of an anthem: classic rave sounds of epic proportions glide through an arrangement of bouncy beats, crisp percussive work and hopeful vocals until a powerful breakdown delivers the hands-in-the-air moment. This year, summer has come early. Next up, ‘The Sun Came Up’ bedazzles with a pumping beat and robotic vocals, while a progressive synth lead helps along the track’s love lyrics, turning this into a truly stunning musical moment, which already proved its power at Sweet Nothings’ heart. On the flip, Dapayk & Padberg present the album’s opener, the trippy ‘Too Lazy’. Here, we’re dealing with a rather brooding afterhours number that is equal parts paranoid and mesmerising as a wonky bass vibrates under dubbed out pads, eerie synths and vocal whispers. The perfect antidote to the cheery A-side!
