- Third Planet EP
Rebellion | 25.09.2020
A regular of Rebellion and a good friend of label-head Damian Lazarus, New York-based Serge Devant makes a welcome return to the label with Third Planet. Set for release on 25th September, the EP is made up of two peak-time, club-ready tracks that showcase Serge at his best.
Speaking of how the release came together, Serge Devant described how the EP was inspired by a “Soviet era science fiction cartoon that I loved when I was a kid”, culminating in a record that is “oriented more towards peak time.”
A regular of the international club circuit as well a prolifically talented producer, Serge Devant has carved out an esteemed standing within the electronic sphere. Regular appearances at DC-10’s Circoloco have helped shape his worldwide sound, whilst releases on Damian Lazarus’ Crosstown Rebels and Jamie Jones’ Emerald City have garnered acclaim from several industry heavyweights. 2019 marked a particular momentous occasion, in a year that saw Serge’s Yini remix remain at the top of Beatport’s Deep House chart for two consecutive months. Ever-ambitious, Third Planet continues his incredible run of form, that shows no sign of stopping anytime soon.
The science fiction feel is felt right away, as the title track Third Planet gets underway with a bouncy lead bassline. Choppy and swinging, it’s the rustling hat combos that accentuate the tracks rhythmic feel before reverberating vocals blend with pulses of acid to create a fiery, dance-floor ready number. Girls Laugh completes the two-tracker in a similar vein to the first, with a no-nonsense club-oriented feel that hits as hard as it sounds. A prominent lead kick forms the backbone of the track, as subtle pads rise and fall alongside softly echoing vocals, to form a minimal-leaning number with plenty of groove attached.
