Placid aka Paul Wise is the leading light behind ‘We’re Going Deep’ – an online community and record label, born out of a lifelong affair with the many shades of electronic rhythm and obsession for collecting records since 1988.
Known to many in underground House and Techno circles, he’s spent the last few decades moving heads and feet at select venues, parties and fields across the UK and beyond. On a mission to share and release new music via his imprint: only the best in Acid, Electro, Techno and Deep House for the dance floor, front room or even just your headphones makes the cut.
For the latest We’re Going Deep solo series edition, Paul welcomes the mysterious talent and touch of Dircsen. Whilst little is known about this impressive producer hailing from Germany, his superbly rounded set of releases for the Hague’s Soundtravels and Croatian outfit Beef Records have certainly captured the ear and the imagination. With a penchant for the purest sounding waves of TB-303, soaring synths and punchy percussion – there’s nothing but magic when it comes to his work.
Kicking off with the hypnotic, dubby tinged tones of ‘Nothing Remains’ on A1 – the stripped back shuffle of percussion and shimmering stabs evolve in ghostly fashion as an evocative mood prevails: a purist exercise in restraint and calm. Balanced with gnarly intent of ‘Artificial Mind’ on A2, he lands the cutting SAW of his trusty synth to an unfaltering 808 groove. That simply grows in intensity and growl – burying itself in your psyche in the process.
B1 ‘Nervous Disorder’ drives on even further into twilight zone, unleashing a soaring lead to the punch of a swinging 909 that’s designed for pure pleasure – an ode to Chicago’s finest. Ending out on the mellower, house inflected tones of ‘Imminent Flow’ on B2. The cyclical roll of the melody and gentle sub compliment each other perfectly as airy pads lift the atmosphere and bring the EP to a dreamy conclusion.
