Dedast is Greek producer and composer Vasilis Miamis, previously operating under the moniker Will-o’-the-wisp. His album “Loft Landing” features instrumental contemporary ambient with occasional down-tempo flavours, sounding versatile, open and transparent.
Next to a feel of ambient chill-out, the nine moody, sometimes rather minimal shaped tracks contain mellow melodies along more active, energizing electronics and some trip hop grooves. It best comes to fruition on the opener “Reagent Feelings”, the uplifting title track (which builds a very relaxing sphere overall) and the emotive, more condensed excursions “Can’t take it any more” and “Dollhouse”. The album ends beautiful with the quiet, sensitive spaces of “Passing Away”.
Try this album if you like fresh and vibrant sounding ambient in the slow lane.
