Boomkat Product Review:
Promising debut single from new Ninja Tune signee, Deco Child, backed with remixes by Flipbook and Crewdson. On 'Pray' he's operating in the same realms of melodic, rhythm-driven electronica as Four Tet or Floating Points, stirring up emotional melodies and blooming harmonic noise over bass-heavy swing rhythms. For contrast 'Nocturne' is a candle-lit piece of piano-led electronic soul more akin to James Blake, displaying an impressive vocal range and feel for sumptuous arrangement. Remixing, Flipbook alloys both tracks for more dancefloor-friendly electro appeal while Crewdson gives 'Nocturne' a spindly, tricksy IDM/HipHop spin. RIYL Thom Yorke, James Blake, Ifan Dafydd. Debut album out later this year.
