Deciduous are back just in time for festival season, releasing their latest remix, a complete reconstruction of the Hot Since 82 track ‘Buggin’, which is available as a free download.
Paulo and Ryan, the two components of the Deciduous project spoke to Four Four contributor Dylan Moore about their process in the remix, inspiration behind it and their plans for the summer.
Having the stems to work with allowed the duo to completely rework a tune they both loved: “We’ve always been fans of the original track and played it a lot in 2018. It was an interesting process to try take a track, which we hold in such high regard and put our own spin on it.”
Deciduous are one of the small number of Irish producers working in the melodic and progressive house/techno genre. With such a small community of artists in Ireland the success has been fantastic, getting support from international producers.
“We chopped nearly all the stems and added a bit of our own touch with piano and brass synths to rearrange the track into a more chilled out melodic vibe. We have had support on the track from a number of artists – Adriatique, Fideles, Massano to name a few,” Paulo explained.
When asked what they have been up to in the lead up to this release, Ryan described that they have been focusing solely on productions instead of gigs. “This has led us to have a pretty exciting release schedule for the summer/autumn months with releases coming on Future Romance (vinyl) and Ampers&, OC&Verde’s new imprint which is one we targeted earlier this year,” he described.
They will be making their first appearance of the summer next week at Life Fest which they are no strangers to, having played the District 8 stage previously. In June, they will be appearing in the Cellar in Dublin, and they are hoping to secure their first international show at the end of the summer.
Keep your eyes peeled for more releases over the summer, but until then, enjoy their Floatation Mix of the Hot Since 82 track, ‘Buggin’, which the lads have kindly given to us as a free download.
