|High expectations for Deon Custom debut album
Young Dutch producer surprised by all positive attention
Amsterdam 15 Mei 2013 – A few weeks ago barely anyone knew the name Deon Custom. Slowly his name is creating a buzz and expectations are growing for his album “Ametrine”. Some of his tracks start to appear in mixes and playlists of key players.
Most notable are the repeated plays Plastician is giving Deon Custom on his Rinse FM show, every week he plays at least one of the tracks from the album. Dutch DJ’s like Vincent Paolo and FS Green play tracks in their sets, and the latter also supported a track on the 22tracks website. Other support comes from artists like Boeboe, 813 and Mike Mago.
Deon: “I’m not really believing it, but I apreciate all the love I’m getting so far so much and I think things can only go uphill from here.”
The album is of a really high producitonal quality with outstanding instrumentation. It has lots of influences from modern music history, but the sound is unique and fresh.
Deon Custom switches between dubstep, future bass, hip hop, psychedelic rock with a dash of Dutch bass and still manages to make it sound complete throughout the whole album. Deon: “Since I was a kid I’ve been fascinated by fairytale surrealism and videogames. I love being taken away to a world where everything is beautiful and full of love. Next to that I have naturally been influenced by all the different styles of music I have listened to and combined those.”
Unravelling the mystery
The album will be released the 27th of May through Basserk Records. Building up to the release teasers, remixes and games will be made public to slowly unravel the mystery of Ametrine. Some tracks can be found online, and two remixes have been posted on soundcloud. One remix of Labyrinth Garden by Kratos Himself and one of Pearls by Jarreau Vandal.
Deon Custom presents his album on June 7th in the OT301 in Amsterdam playing alongside Jameszoo & Jarreau Vandal.
