One of 2013’s fastest-rising DJ/producer profiles, Canadian native Gab Rhome has embarked on a collision course with the industry’s leading underground labels. Trailing the sweeping success of his recent contribution to All Day I Dream, the diligent newcomer at last tendered his debut release for Sasha’s Last Night On Earth imprint, the Deuce EP.
Dishing out a trilogy of cutting-edge productions to amass his latest studio package, Gab strikes an optimal balance between tech-inspired syncopations and emotive deep house undertones.
Immediately engulfing listeners within an orchestral dreamscape, the EP commences with the lead track, Let’s Keep This A Secret. Despite the record’s reticent title, its secret formula is quite obvious: amicable instrumental layers, recurrent progressive chords, and atmospheric reverbs.
Next on the menu from the Deuce EP, Gab treads through extrinsic musical territories, serving up a rhythmic obscurity in the form of The Inevitable Intervention. Rather than renew the previous track’s simplistic structure, The Inevitable Intervention invokes an entirely original format, sporting offbeat percussions, grainy analog sweeps, and distorted vocal teases.
Resolving the intricate release with an air of perplexity, A Really Shady Place beckons an unusually enigmatic character, considering its blatant designation under the category of deep house. As Deuce’s concluding track unfolds its airy instrumentations and whimsical background samples, we’re left helplessly guessing what’s next to come from Gab Rhome’s imaginative mind.
Don’t sleep on this blossoming prodigy–for a year from now, Gab will surely be playing among the big-leaguers. Grab his newest EP right here on Beatport.
