TOTD // 10/10 // Serge Devant

Published: October 10, 2016, words by Undefined author

With releases on heavyweight imprints like Crosstown Rebels, Yousef’s Circus and an inaugural release for Jamie Jones and Lee Foss’ Hot Creations sub-label Emerald City, it’s easy to say Brooklyn based producer Serge Devant has become one of the most exciting artists making his mark on the international house scene right now.

Russian-born Serge moved to New York in the 90’s and was immediately captured by the city’s thriving nightlife, which of course, went hand-in-hand with new dance music of the era. Instantly hooked on modern 90s sounds from the likes Depeche Mode and Jean Michel Jarre, Serge Devant began to discover and create a new style of electronic music influenced directly from the culture he found himself at the heart of. A regular at legendary New York clubs like Twilo, Sound Factory and Tunnel, he soon found himself in control of the decks in his beloved city’s haunts, honing and shaping his skills and fixing him as the talented artist of today acclaimed by artists like Pirupa, Hot Since 82 and Damian Lazarus, and playing at some of the most important venues around the world including Fabric London and Space Ibiza.

Such a fan was Damian Lazarus in fact; Serge Devant has now become a regular feature on his imprint Crosstown Rebels. Having remixed for the head-honcho himself, and with releases like the Always On My Mind EP earlier this year, this October marks a new venture with Crosstown Rebels. His This Moment EP is out on Crosstown Rebels on October 14th, and features two original moody house cuts available to purchase here.

With an impressive 2016 under his belt, and much more on the horizon – it comes as no surprise that we’ve invited Serge Devant to share his Tracks Of The Day with us. Enjoy!

“This record is so sexy; I had to make my own edit of it. The groove just keeps you on your feet, luring you in with layers and layers of percussion, and really cool vocal samples throughout the entire record. ”

“This is a very clever bootleg of Prince’s’ ‘Kiss’. Such a great groove and vocal chops! When it comes out of original and goes into the groove unexpectedly… well that just puts a smile on my face. Amazing edit. ”

“This record just builds and builds, then there’s such a long breakdown, which calms things down for a while… but when it comes back in, the place goes bonkers. Top!”

“I love the random effects shooting at you from left and right on this track! I had to make my edit of this one as well, to get rid of the melody synth lines and just make it all about the groove. Yes yes, it’s always all about the groove!”
