Review: Danish up and coming producer Denis Horvat is back again on Berlin tech house hero Alex Niggemann's Aeon Audio. First track "Exit" is a tunnelling dark techno journey with rusty and syncopated rhythms while "Transparent" and "Moerna" are dark journey tracks with wonky and catchy synth leads plus haunting atmospheres that'll appeal to Life & Death fans. The remix of "Exit" by rising Italian duo Marvin & Guy is super infectious and has a groove that sits somewhere between nu-disco and progressive house and is equally surefire on the dancefloor.
Review: The newly founded Picture series by Diynamic is a document in time, showcasing an artist's current creative output in order to allow the listener to visualise and understand the artist at a certain moment. After previous editions by Moscoman, Lehar and Karmon we have the ascendant Danish producer Denis Horvat taking up the reins. With previous releases on top label like Innervisions, Afterlife and Alex Niggemann's Aeon - this further represents a new height in his production career. From the main-room deep house of futuristic grooves like "Bajka" or "Mousse", through to his now distinct style of melodic/evocative techno as heard on the dancefloor drama of "Devin" and ethereal slow burners like "Targa" (feat Jeppe Kjellberg).
Review: After his excellent contribution to Diynamic's Picture series, ascendant Danish DJ/producer Denis Horvat is back on Afterlife. He returns to Afterlife for a second EP of distinctive, dancefloor productions - a year after the wonderful "Modelo". On Miracle Of The Rose, bear witness to an evocative and authentic development of Horvat's sound. From the hypnotic melodicism of "Noise" (feat. Lelah) which again showcases the Dane's trademark sound, to the moody and minimalist atmosphere of the title track and ending with the ethereal sci-fi dancefloor drama of "Divin".
Review: With his strong penchant for emotive and euphoric dancefloor narratives as heard on Exit Strategy, Afterlife and Aeon - it was only a matter of time until Denis Horvat's sound became appreciated by Berlin imprint Innervisions. Since appearing on the label's Secret Weapons compilations a couple of times in the past, the rising Dane now makes his debut proper for the label - for the third and final installment of this trio of EPs. From the reflective mood music of opener "Tajna", to the soulful and evocative dancefloor drama of "Fragmental" or the moody futurist groove of "Pure Distance" - hammering the message home with that bit of power.
Review: Denis Horvat follows last year's In Hertz release with a new two-track EP for Exit Strategy. The title track follows an unusual approach; chugging along at 120bpm, it sees the Danish producer bring together droning riffs with tribal house drums. Despite seeming incompatible, these elements blend fluidly. On the other side, "Nonsense" sees Horvat embrace another unorthodox methodology. This time, it sees a glitchy, minimal groove underpinning a siren stab that is looped and filtered to infinity, without losing time with the jittery, twitchy backing track. Axle is ideal for those DJs who like to drop sonic curve balls in their sets.
Review: Danish rising star Denis Horvat has sure made leaps and strides in the last year, with releases on labels such as Innervisions, Exit Strategy and of course Aeon; the imprint run by Berlin's Alex Niggemann that he's fast become a staple of. For his new Lodi EP, the title track is yet more of his unmistakeable brand of deep futurism, with its slow burning arpeggios, minimal beats and emotive synth solos. "Severina" is more straight ahead and adrenalised with a shrieking melody soaring above a tunnelling, hi-octane groove. Finally the dark journey track "The Task" explores his penchant for yet more captivating synth solos, plus a gripping sense of atmosphere on this epic slice of dancefloor drama.
Review: Danish DJ and producer Denis Horvat had a stellar year in 2017 with releases on Innervisions, Exit Strategy and of course his own Aeon imprint. His surefire brand of deep melodic techno now finds yet another fitting home of Tale Of Us' Afterlife imprint. Razor sharp arpeggios, Afro tinted rhythms (plus all the mandatory buzzy synth leads!) comprise the dynamic opener "Modelo". This is the sort of track you'd imagine the likes of Dixon and Ame playing to festival heaving crowds. To create some proper dancefloor drama, you could bet on the brooding slow burner "The Bender" to deliver while "Natural Sources" delivers one more dose of euphoria, featuring intricate layers of tunneling and hypnotic sequences - emitting some immaculate audio sorcery you can lose yourself in. More impressive tracks from one of the scene's rising stars.
