Video Premiere: Marlon Hoffstadt & Racquet – Crumble (Original Mix)
More than one month ago we had our first release on DHA Records. Now it’s time to unveil the music video for the track.
Deep House Amsterdam’s brand new imprint DHA Records launched its debut release with ‘Crumble’ by Marlon Hoffstadt & Raquet alongside remixes from Andre Lodemann and Poupon. Cologne based photographer and filmmaker Nils vom Lande shot the perfect video to go along with the song. The clip accompanies a young woman on her sedate and lonsome journey through day and night.
Crumble is a powerful, almost spiritual slow-burner. Its composition is built around stripped-back percussion and a dreamy, repetitive electric guitar strum. With vocals and guitar work by UK lo-fi band Racquet, the structure breathes an ambient touch that sticks with you long after the music has faded.
Remix duties come from the hands of Andre Lodemann and Poupon. Canadian-born and Amsterdam-based Poupon is pulling a bit towards the original in his take on Crumble, with stretched-out vocal snippets and a broad focus on the guitar. However, you’re struck by surprise when halfway into the track the listener is taken on an electrifying build-up that ends with a no-holds barred pinnacle of epic proportions.
Lodemann sets off on a dubby and very danceable interpretation of the original, with a dominant bassline that feeds the progression onto a heavier framework. Droning guitars and playful synths work up to a distorted climax that will undoubtedly cause many dance floors to be set ablaze.
