In celebration of his forthcoming album 'Enter' on Anjunadeep, Durante provides a Deep House Sunset DJ Set live from Joshua Tree.
Hailing from a small Italian village outside of Florence, Durante (aka Kevin Durante) began his musical journey in 2006. Drawn to the sweet spots where the genres of house and techno intersect, Durante’s versatile sound has seen him release with Anjunadeep, Armada, W&O Street Records, and Amtrac’s imprint Openers. Esteemed artists including Bonobo, RÜFÜS DU SOL, and Joris Voorn have praised Durante’s work, and he has collaborated with the likes of Diplo & Aluna on ‘Forget About Me’ and Amtrac on ‘Gather’, as well as remixing Cassian, Booka Shade, TWO LANES and more.
Now, 18 years after his musical journey started, Durante finally shares his debut album ‘Enter’ on Anjunadeep. Inspired by the concept of portals and multiple dimensions, ‘Enter’ showcases his eclectic sound that has developed from Kevin’s diverse pool of musical influences, featuring Duke Ellington, classic Italo-disco, and early Cocoon records.
“I’ve spent the past three years working on this album, it marks the beginning of many great endeavours in my life. It’s a coming-of-age story, but it’s also a reflection of the world around us. I’m happy to be able to share my emotions through music because the words escape me. Hopefully, you can find solace in the sound. Open your eyes, enter the portal to the sixth dimension.” - Durante
Across 13 compelling tracks, Durante explores themes of self-discovery, acceptance, and love. The album features collaborations with Montréal-based producer and live act CRi, American vocalist Nathan Nicholson, Australian singer-songwriter Running Touch, Californian songstress and producer HANA, and London-based vocalist SOHN.
Durante's latest single 'Holding On' combines Nathan Nicholson's warm vocals with meticulously crafted synths and a pulsating bassline. Nathan Nicholson, an accomplished vocalist and songwriter from the United States, has collaborated with artists such as Tinlicker, Eelke Kleijn, Hannah Wants, and Sebastian Davidson, releasing records through Ultra, Armada, PIAS, and more.
Durante will be kicking off his album tour in January in the USA, playing across cities including New York, Los Angeles, and Seattle, as well as playing at the Anjunadeep label showcase event at the esteemed London venue, the Roundhouse.
