As they often say, you need to flashback to move forward. With a masterful approach, here Danya Vodovoz recreates an authentic retro mix that ignites the second it drops. Taking in authentic tones, the energy immediately transitions you to the glory days of the music industry. Time to take notice of this talented artist as he proves every release is a unique insight to his identity.
‘The Dealer’ is the huge new retro wave track to come from talented producer Danya Vodovoz. Telling the story of the shadowy anti-hero ‘dealer’ character, ‘The Dealer’ is a symbol of fear, dependence, and ruin as well as mystery and even sanctity. The track features pulsating synths that build the sense of mystery and drama that is amplified in the accompanying video.
Filmed in rural Australia, the young director Braden McDonald chose foggy streets and gloomy fields late at night to conjure a ghostly feeling. Contrasting light, darkness, and smoke throughout the clip to compound a sense of mystery and to amplify the Lynchian, noir-Esque imagery through which the protagonist (Narelle Collins) is constantly driven while taking part in a deal that eventually goes south.
Danya Vodovoz launched his career in 1999 after being heavily influenced by the electronic music movement. Danya Vodovoz left his classical training in pursuit of new sounds and textures, and the freedom to experiment with fresh and bold ideas. Since 1999, Danya Vodovoz has produced more than thirty sample packs and instruments for Elastik, Kontakt and Melodyne and composed music for ads, movies and video games.
His EP ‘Serotonin’ was released in 2008 by the Deep House label, Night Drive Music. Danya followed with an album in 2009 called ‘Mantra’. The track ‘Serotonin’ was backed by Laurent Garnier and was featured in the top 10 of the Miss Kittin Beatport charts in 2011. His work has been picked up by major publications such as Stereofox and EARMILK, as well as being picked up by companies such as Disney and Adidas. For fans of Devo and Gary Numan, his new single ‘The Dealer’ is definitely one to check out!
