"Hot on the heels of 2015’s Nord 7”, Distel returns to Beläten with the two-track single Nadagen.
Thematically the songs deal with transformation, hard-earned change and evolution, and this is apparent even in the music itself. The building blocks are essentially still the same. Demented choruses of voices, pulsating rhythms, and jittery, rave-like arpeggios.
But there’s a distinct sense that these two songs operate on an even higher level than previous Distel works. They ooze of dystopian discomfort and menacing surreality. At the same time, there’s something very inviting and mesmerizing about them, making it impossible to stop listening. You stumble through a dimly-lit world, mind numbed, sweat pissing from every pore, and with an uncontrollable urge to fall into ecstatic dance.
Simply put, this is dark, danceable pop music for people willing and able to rise above the mediocrity of the masses."
