Deep Forest – Evo Devo
90s ethnic ambient act Deep Forest are still going. Still releasing albums. The next of which Evo Devo is out now. Their eponymous Deep Forest track may have spawned a thousand yoga mats and soundtracked a million macrobiotic meals but there’s still mileage in new tracks like Stutter Dream which offer something less soothing and more engaging than many. This isn’t going to challenge you particularly. It’s not going to change your life. But in the right mood it should improve the quality of your life just that little bit.
Grammy Award winning act DEEP FOREST are set to release new album EVO DEVO on the 10th June via Metropolis Records. Deep Forests’ Signature-Anthem “Sweet Lullaby” instantly opened the world stage for the band. Their associated first album became a huge success and gained gold, platinum or double-platinum status in numerous countries like Australia, France, Germany, Great Britain, Japan or the United States. In 1995 Deep Forest won the prestigious Grammy Award for their album Boheme. They were the first French artists to win a Grammy Award and to this day, they only share this honour with Daft Punk.
With the distinct ethnic-driven sound of Deep Forest, Eric Mouquet belongs to the few unique pioneers of electronic music. His highly recognizable sounds defined the concept of world music and shaped the all-new sound of ethnic-electronica. Since the very first album of Deep Forest, Eric Mouquet loved using and exploring samples: “I experimented a lot with parts of sounds, songs and voices. This technique contributes the heart and soul to the very own sound of Deep Forest.”
