Rooted within the Deep House genre ‘Dark Faders’ starts off with dreamy, sporadic synth phrases, a solid four-on-the floor kick and a distorted guitar-like chord enhancement. The track intensifies with a phasing effect and a bass-boosted kick, whilst introducing harsher melodies. The typical, infectious Deep House groove serves as a driving force behind the pumping atmosphere, with jumpy 16th feel Hi-Hats inserted to lighten the feel at intervals. Orchestral string sections are added for a spiced up, epic mood, drawing elements from Kinderleicht’s soundtrack inspirations. Kinderleicht reserves a surprise factor with the saxophone and strings led breakdown, before adding his signature Deep House inspired groove to get things moving again. The flow within this single is astonishing and Steve’s massive control over dynamic is continuously on display with the meticulously planned song sectioning and beat processing.
‘Dark Faders’ is now part of Steven Vim’s own Pulsetone Muted. The Deep House, House and Tech House specialist sub-label of Pulsetone Records has been on the forefront of its scene since its commencement and is now seeking to add more weight to its catalogue.
