At the age of 25, Erick Orrosquieta aka Deorro is a complete artist: superstar in Latin America, a highly respected artist in Europe and founder of the Panda Funk label. Deorro seduces with his productions of a quality always irreprochable and impresses by its ability to shine in multiple musical styles.
The album he chose to propose is exactly the reflection of this polymorphous identity. The album officially contains 24 tracks, which is twice as much as a classic album, but as you can imagine, the number of real titles falls to 12. The others are interludes ensuring transitions between different universes of each track. Deorro wanted to propose an initiatory journey that transports us in different colors of his incredible palette, all in a continuous listening from end to end.
In this album you can hear big room, Hardstyle, Electro Swing, Melbourne Bounce, Future House, Soul, Gospel, Latino or Pop Urbaine. And each title, which represents one of the styles, impresses by its singularity and its quality. It’s simply amazing.
Obviously everyone does not appreciate all styles and some titles may seem a bit violent or against the deep tastes of everyone. But what a great initiative on the part of Deorro to propose to open up to all the styles following so that everyone can make his own idea. What better way to open one’s mind, to develop one’s culture and, why not, to have the heart for a style that one did not dare to listen to until then.
You will understand, we loved this album which is one of the best that has been released on the electro scene for 2 years. Deorro did not just gather his main singles already released or propose a tracklist meaningless, it took three years to design a journey that can be listened to endlessly without any interruption.
On the side of the negative points, one will note nevertheless the big difference sometimes violent between the different titles that will be interpreted as a lack of total coherence in the album and to put off some. We also regret that Deorro did not take advantage of this great idea to propose an album in the form of a global work to propose a true story as background and thread, as can be found on the album Discovery of Daft Punk. In the end the interludes are only used to make transitions, certainly very class, between the titles and could have served to tell a story that would have given even more body to this album already very complete.
