After a myriad of compilation tracks and a few demos that caused
quite a stir in the hard electronic music scene, Wales’s David
Dando-Moore finally presents his first full length album. Taking
some time from his work as the manager of Immanence
Records, he signs here a compact 10 track album in which he
takes his Detritus
project along a brand new road.
The usual suspects remain, of course: percussive drum’n’bass
patterns, infectious melodies, and an acute composition skill. But
offers for the first time on “Endogenous” is a solid
sense of alternance between the rhythms and the melodies. Not negating
his primary beat-driven nature, Detritus
approaches here the listeners with beautiful tones. It wouldn't
have been enough to pack the dancefloor (and Detritus doesn’t
have to prove anymore that it can make people move), and “Endogenous”’s
second side is a melancholic, contemplative one, rich of a brand
While many an act in the current electronic music scene tends to
forget that music is at first made to be enjoyed, Detritus
places back the listener at the centre of his composition process.
Not forgetting to present something fresh and interesting, David
Dando-Moore’s personal mix of intricate drums and seducing
tones is an addictive one. Music can be both innovative and beautiful,
catchy and challenging, which is what this new album on Ad Noiseam
demonstrates once again.
