Worakls – Digital DGTL (Full Live) – Video (2020)
Genre: Deep House, Melodic House
Well, it doesn’t get any cooler and more relaxed than this, Worakls, French DJ, producer and label owner, is sitting comfortably on the couch in the living room, his electronic equipment draped on the living room table, the MacBook lies ready to hand on the sofa, the Akai APC 40 DAW controller is within easy reach on the sofa to his right, but for the sake of simplicity he also likes to place it on his lap, while Worakls leans back comfortably, swaying to the music with his whole body and operating the knobs and buttons – complete madness, in the positive sense.
Musically Worakls is treating us to a 67-minute mix of his greatest hits in the very best Deep House / Tech House manner. As always, his sound sparkles with playfulness and creativity, a fine smile flits across his face during the gig again and again.
At 5:52 min goosebumps arise for the first time, as Eivør from the Faroe Islands is giving the track “Red Dressed” a folkloric melancholic touch with her clear voice. That cozy feeling is then carried on with a slightly driving fast beat, excellent piano playing by Worakl and lots of strings with the tracks “By the Brook” and “Coeur De La Nuit – Worakls Remix”.
A really great electronic couchtrip from Worakl’s living room, by the way, with excellent sound quality.
I can recommend the album Orchestra from 2019 by Worakls, which you can get from Qobuz, among others. His latest work, Sur le front des animaux menacés, on the other hand, offers some references to classical music, but is also convincing across the board.
