dOP 'Greatest Hits' (Circus Company)
Parisian trio- Clément , Dam, and JAW have been creating Lounge-Tech for the past three years as dOP. They've found success with their unique brand of sexy, infectious, and often bizarre version of soulful house.
Perhaps the reason for their sound comes from the long history each member has playing multiple instruments in bands ranging in style from Jazz to Rock to Classical, Reggae and even Hip Hop. Perhaps their style comes from too much love making and vodka. Either way, these guys prove to be legit.
They also have a deep relationship with lyrics as most tracks on the 14-track debut full length, 'Greatest Hits' contain them. The stories they weave through their bippity boppity productions are as odd as the instrumentations. The titles speak for themselves- "Happy Meal", "Worm Hunting", "3 Suitcases" and my personal favorite- "Love Ride."
The trio share in the creation of each track, most normally through a division of each players strong suit. Dam, on sax and keyboards. Clément tackles the rhythmic aspect and also handles most of the computer arrangements. And JAW lends the lizard-like vocals to each song. His lyrics are a cluster of sex, poverty, late nights, champagne, drugs, death and cannibalism.
dOP are equal parts dark Berlin techno club and part corner cabaret. This is not for your average listener but for those ready to challenge what truly is seedy and sultry in the vast realm of club music.
"Greatest Hits" will be released October 4th on Circus Company.
