Be the first to own Dean De­manuele’s new EP ahead of the World’s Top DJs

Malta Independent - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

Fans of Dean De­manuele’s work and lovers of elec­tronic mu­sic can now sup­port the genre’s ‘next big thing’ by do­nat­ing to the artist’s re­cently-launched Zaar cam­paign. ‘Sum­mer Blue’, Dean’s new EP, will go into pro­duc­tion early next year and €3,000 is needed to get it mixed, mas­tered, to cre­ate its mu­sic video and art­work and, fi­nally, make the re­wards as soon as the cam­paign is com­plete.

As a Mal­tese elec­tronic artist, Dean has trav­elled around Europe with his mu­sic, and has played at top venues in Ger­many, Eng­land, Switzer­land, France, Spain (in­clud­ing Ibiza). Now based in Malta, he is en­cour­ag­ing mu­sic lovers to be part of this project and to help cre­ate a new vi­sion for the lo­cal mu­sic in­dus­try.

“The elec­tronic scene in Malta is a grow­ing one and we need to keep feed­ing it more than ever,” he says. “I’d like to cre­ate a new niche and en­cour­age sup­port for this par­tic­u­lar genre. I hope to show a new vi­sion to the in­ter­na­tional in­dus­try.”

Dean is cer­tainly no new­bie to elec­tronic mu­sic. While based in the UK and Berlin he worked with top artists in­clud­ing Pig&Dan and Lee Van Dowski, while fans of his own work in­clude Lau­rent Garnier, Lu­ciano, Oliver Hun­te­mann, Loco Dice, Richie Hawtin and John Dig­weed.

Dean ex­plains that Sum­mer Blues will have a melan­cholic sound in­spired by his time in Berlin. At the time he was work­ing with one of Ger­many’s largest elec­tronic mu­sic agency, Jack­mode. The re­sult is an EP with five tracks that will keep you on your toes for around 35 min­utes.

And, to en­cour­age sup­port­ers to click on Zaar’s ‘donate’ but­ton, Dean has lined up a num­ber of cool re­wards. “The EP will be re­leased both in CD and dig­i­tal for­mat, with spe­cial signed copies ready and wait­ing for you as soon as we man­age to make this cam­paign a suc­cess­ful one. For those who help fund us, will re­ceive their copy ahead of time – even ear­lier than the world’s top DJs. We’re also giv­ing out per­son­alised and thank you video calls over Skype, la­bel-branded stick­ers, badges and t-shirts,” he says.

“We’re very grate­ful for the sup­port and keen to in­ter­act with those with a love for elec­tronic mu­sic,” Dean adds.

Dean’s cam­paign will be live on from 25 Novem­ber 2016
