German producer, DJ and singer Perel was responsible for one of 2018’s standout releases. Hermetica is a creative fusion of German new wave, synth pop and modern dance floor grooves—a testament to the confluence of influences that has marked Perel’s time producing in Berlin.
It’s a testament to the selector’s broad taste, then, that she can just as effortlessly put together a blistering one-hour mix of trance and rave tunes. On her effort for the long-running Melbourne Deepcast mix series, Perel mixes tripped-out melodies with unfolding grooves to masterful effect, patiently building tension and atmosphere across the 60 minutes.
Featuring two unreleased tracks from Perel, the mix also gives an exciting preview of what to expect from the rising talent in the coming year.
