Leading South African artist, Dean Fuel, returns to SMAAK with his massive second release – ‘Into The Blue’ – featuring two high energy, well-crafted masterpieces that set the tone for his releases to come.
Following the imminent success of Dean Fuel’s debut release – ‘All In’ – on his own imprint, SMAAK, amassed support from industry leaders including The Playground UK, IDM Mag, UFO Network, and many more, as well as many top international artists – he returns to SMAAK for a second sophisticated release.
Loaded with the uplifting and driving energy that his sound has become defined by, and showcasing the dancefloor weight of his productions with two perfectly crafted late night bombs – this EP looks set to define the tone and versatility for future releases. Big basslines fused with nostalgic arpeggios lead the way for the title track from the EP, ‘Into The Blue’, with a progressive atmosphere and syncopated drum rhythms pushing the energy throughout the track and keeping the pace going until the very end.
Closing off the EP with serious momentum, ‘Alchemy’ fuses a darker late-night energy with tribal vocal hooks and daring synth leads that build tension in a breathtaking mid-track climax, opening things up for the final drop that stays true to its name – finishing things off in a polished fashion that Dean Fuel and SMAAK are quickly making a name for.
