It’s summertime and time to party and we are fairly sure that this gem will throw off any mixtape. Italian born DJ Deborah De Luca has pulled off a stunt that clearly delivers.
No one has probably missed the Billie Eilish frenzy that kicked started 2019. Billie’s new album has conquered every chart possible on the planet, with her mix of techno drums, weird musical variations and unique vocals. Here at Stereoklang her record has gone warm on the vinyl player. So where does Debbie fit into this? Well yesterday she released a remix / edit of Billie’s smash hit Bad Guy, and yes you will love it.
Like most people her age, Billies influences and listening habits are strikingly diverse. During a shoot in West Hollywood she vibes out to music by rising US rapper Tierra Whack and her 15-minute album, ‘Whack World’, and as well as The Strokes and Arctic Monkeys. She has cited The Beatles and Avril Lavigne, among others, as all-time favourites.
Though they are fairly traditional influences, her music is thoroughly modern. Her generation’s hope, anxiety, vulnerability and heartbreak are reflected in the songs she pens with Finneas. ‘Bellyache’, from that debut EP, was inspired by the regret she felt when she would shoplift or occasionally nab toys from friends. “I’d leave and want to throw up with guilt. I used to think the police were going to come to class and take me away from my parents,” she laughs. “It was completely irrational, but there’s nothing like that overwhelming feeling, and to say that a child can’t write about those feelings because they are too young is bogus.”
On the new album is inspired by Eilish’s frequent night terrors and lucid dreams, the album juggles dark compulsions with grim eulogies, balancing her feathery vocals with deep, grisly bass. Like her spirit animal, the spider, Eilish can weave something that is at once delicate and grotesque: In “you should see me in a crown,” she lulls the listener into a false idyll with her murmured lilt, then leaps off the cliff of a tectonic dubstep bass drop, her sneer fully audible.
