Deco Child - Pray - out on Ninja Tune



Deco Child Pray
Deco Child - Pray
(Promo CD/Digital Single) Ninja Tune ZENDNLS304, 2012-01-09

Twenty two year old Alex Lloyd (aka Deco Child) was walking through Battersea one day, looking at the ground, when in front of him, scraped into the pavement with the edge of a coin, he saw the word, "PRAY". As well as inspiring the track of the same name, it stands as a fitting metaphor for what the electronic musician does - scratching away at the edifices of recorded music to express emotion, exhilaration, devotion. Deco Child makes beautiful, emotional electronic music. Pray itself is blessed with a swelling sense of euphoria, tinged with a kind of wonder that will remind you of heart-quickening revelations made behind a 2 a.m. cigarette. Nocturne takes a different direction, Lloyd layering Ben Dodson's pristine vocals over delicate romantic piano before flinging them out into space, dropping a deep, dub-tinged groove which loses none of the earlier section's emotional heft. The original tracks get a diverse set of treatments at the hands of the remixers... With a strong focus on melody that places his sound in the company of Four Tet and Floating Points, Deco Child has already remixed Dan Le Sac and counts These New Puritans amongst his fans. This, his first release for Ninja Tune, showcases the breadth and range of his musical referents and bodes well for his forthcoming debut album in 2012.

Deco Child - Pray

Press Release :
Twenty two year old Alex Lloyd (aka Deco Child) was walking through Battersea one day, looking at the ground, when in front of him, scraped into the pavement with the edge of a coin, he saw the word, "PRAY." As well as inspiring the track of the same name, it stands as a fitting metaphor for what the electronic musician does - scratching away at the edifices of recorded music to express emotion, exhilaration, devotion.

Deco Child makes beautiful, emotional electronic music. "Pray" itself is blessed with a swelling sense of euphoria, tinged with a kind of wonder that will remind you of heart-quickening revelations made behind a 2 a.m. cigarette. "Nocturne" takes a different direction, Lloyd layering Ben Dodson's pristine vocals over delicate romantic piano before flinging them out into space, dropping a deep, dub-tinged groove which loses none of the earlier section's emotional heft.

The original tracks get a diverse set of treatments at the hands of the remixers. Flipbook gives his collision of the two pieces a glitchy, housey shuffle, while Munchi pioneers an ambient Moombahton sound with his epic Destino Solitario mix of Pray. The Crewdson mix of Nocturne, meanwhile, crawls with so much detail it sounds like a bare-knuckle boxing fight between centipedes.

With a strong focus on melody that places his sound in the company of Four Tet and Floating Points, Deco Child has already remixed Dan Le Sac and counts These New Puritans amongst his fans. This, his first release for Ninja Tune, showcases the breadth and range of his musical referents and bodes well for his forthcoming debut album in 2012.
