(Room40)

“Landing” is a short disc – less than 20 minutes – that brings Deupree’s music back to a more tactile aspect, a vision rich of full colours rather than light shades. Three tracks that gently move through the realms of non-complex electronica, attempting to transmit a clear message through slightly perturbed consonance and gradual deployment of acceptable codes. It’s like looking at a person that you know very well, waving from afar, smiling at you, giving the confidence in proceeding with your approach, just like a dad waiting for a toddler trying the first stuttering steps. The music flows at a high rate of fluidity, washes of warm details finding their place in a perfect picture where everything stands where it’s supposed to be. It’s not heartbreaking like in some of Deupree’s past outings, but nevertheless remains an enrichment for everyone’s mind, constituting both a tranquilizing experience and a perfect textural ambience for moments in which the encumbrances of life seem to be far away, and we want them to stay there.
