Amsterdam via Dublin-based DJ and producer Decadance has self-released an impressive 3-track techno EP titled ‘MALEVOLENT GROOVE’ on his Soundcloud with tracks premiering on channels such as Techno Wereld as well as Techno Germany. A seriously impressive collection of industrial hard groove to be heard here. Get stuck in.

Wicklow born, now Amsterdam-based DECADANCE is back with another thrilling release. This time, it comes in the form of an industrial hardgroove body of work titled MALEVOLENT GROOVE that is a tremendously produced by this exciting young artist. Having already released on Parisian label Eradys Records and a wealth of self-releases to accompany this, he adds another 3 solid tracks to his ever-growing discography. This comes as no surprise as the talented producer has received brilliant feedback from some of the industries finest artists in Dax J, Shlomo, Kobosil, Daria Kosolova and many more.

When asked to share his thoughts about the release and what makes it different from Decadance’s previous bodies of work he shared that: ‘The release really stands out from my previous work as the Amsterdam afterhours sound / hardgroove influence is particularly obvious. The manner in which I programmed the drums and phrased the arrangement really borrows from techniques I’ve learnt from making more groovy releases, particularly the ones in collaboration with Genex. 

With this in mind, I processed the tracks’ elements in a way more representative of industrial / hard techno using lots of reverb, delay and distortion. The collision of techniques from two seemingly incompatible techno subgenres makes for something unique in my discography I think. I really found it liberating making all three tracks, as there is nothing better than executing the artistic inspiration which underpins what you want to create. You can definitely still hear signature sounds which you’d expect from a typical DECADANCE track, however, particularly the kickdrums and claps.’
