REVIEW: DECCO ft. Mapei - Shooting Stars incl. Wankelmut Remix out on Universal Music

Decco is the brainchild of the prolific producers and songwriters Joacim Persson and Sebastian Arman. With a mighty list of credits under their belt (John Legend, Kelly Clarkson, Selena Gomez, Marlon Roudette, Ry X, Redman and Konshens only to name a few) they have now set out to pour their creative energy and experience into their self-titled debut. An impressive list of featuring artists lend their voices to bass-heavy tracks with powerful synths, mellow pianos, atmospheric glitches and ground-shaking electronic beats.

The genre-bending debut will feature Aluna George, Alex Vargas, Marlon Roudette and Mapei on a mix of EDM, Singer-Songwriter, Pop and Dancehall with strong songs as the centrepiece. Currently they are travelling between their bases in Los Angeles, London, Stockholm and Vienna writing and perfecting songs for their upcoming EP, due to release in early 2017.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]DECCO is the new talk in town electronic music duo and their future career is predicted by music media as very bright and shinning. Their track Shooting Stars is a relaxing chilling out production with deep basslines, loungy groove, smooth melodies, dreamy strings, memorable synthy riffs and incredible vocals delivered perfectly from Mapei. The track has the right balance of electronic and pop to support the crossover to mainstream potential. Wankelmut is on board as well to provide his fantastic version with more bounce and confidence to  offer the clubbier upfront potential. The atmosphere and the vibe on both tracks are captivating and you will feel totally and utterly immersed to their mythical sonic worlds. #PureGold Love It [/content]
