The new breakout label from Defected continues in fine form
Forrest. makes his debut on Defected’s fresh and innovative sub-label DFTD with the three track Creep EP. Founding member of Amadeus Records, this talented newcomer has already seen the success of one single earlier this year titled ‘Marlon Brando’, released on Noir Records, and was also featured on Pete Tong’s Essential Mix where he was highlighted as one of the ‘13 Artists To Watch Out For 2013’.
On this occasion the Canadian aka Zacharie-Jos Montpetit spoils us with three equally exciting and skilfully produced outings, demonstrating his ambition to command our attention, and why all eyes should be focused on this promising artist whilst he begins to make his mark on the house music scene this summer.
‘Creep’, produced alongside long term collaborator Jonathon Doyon, immediately kicks in with deep pads accompanied by Forrest.’s own captivating vocals to blend together a spellbinding creation. Forrest.’s partnership with Doyon is unquestionably a powerful alliance which we see again in a second charming and polished production titled ‘YSL’. The other track on this EP goes off in to darker territory, this time linking up with German producer Re.You. ‘Face Down’ is not to be taken lightly either, with tribal vibes and a rumbling bassline overlaid with the Canadian’s haunting voice.
