Detalles - Hello Donee EP

Kate Simko and one of the Bucci bros. (not Pier) reunite after a long sit-down with the minimal playbook and bring two new tracks, “Hello Donee” and “Move On,” in advance of their forthcoming full-length. Detalles’ discography consists of a single full-length on Traum, released a few months before Cologne became the epicenter of neu-teuton cool. On “Hello Donee,” the duo makes moves like they’re trying to catch up, even as they’re weighed down by Simko’s welcome melodic sense and down-pillow beats. It’s perfect for a Pier Bucci remix and, a few noogies later, that’s what we get: Pier’s more assured beat-construction lending better troughs for the melody to wallow, writhe, and worm around in. “Move On” is closer to Detalles’ earlier work, giving up stiff-house beats for chunkier concerns that act as poles around which the duo’s sedate melody glides passively. Before you say glorious Sunday drive, though, we get Jonas Bering’s mix—an effort that comes close to the neu-teuton cool espoused by Dettinger back in the day.
