Dapayk Solo - Fat Kid’s Choice

Dapayk comes off like an inviting Villalobos on “Perfume,” whispering come-on’s over a simple tech-house beat that veers into breaks every so often. But “Take It Back” is my highlight—featuring a woozy beat, a broken sonar pulse, and a clipped voice helpfully identifying the 1 and the 2. “Norbrac” is a straight bore, though, built for the floor and people who enjoy sound design.
