Serge Devant The Way You Move EP
A Thailand excursion inspires this hypnotic release from the Brooklyn producer.
Following up his and Damiano’s “Fearing Love” on Jamie Jones and Lee Foss’s new Emerald City label, Serge Devant comes back strong with the hypnotic three-track The Way You Move EP on Crosstown Rebels‘ Rebellion imprint. The inspiration for this set of songs came from a recent trip the Brooklyn-based Devant made to Thailand, where he captured field recordings ranging from the sounds of a gong meditation ceremony to rainfall in the jungle—those sounds are incorporated throughout much of the release, and find Devant summoning an enchanting vibe. The title track sets a sexy after-hours mood with a dark and slinky rhythm built around a loose 808 work-out and mesmerizing vocal sample; Audiofly offer a tougher take on the track with their remix, while “Intentions” closes out the release with a delicate and sublime groove.
