EXCLUSIVE TRACK PREMIERE : DE MOI – ‘ROOM FOR DOUBTS’

“Today we feel excited at Last Day Deaf, to exclusively premiere the elegant beauty from Prague based composer De Moi. ‘Room for Doubts‘ belongs to the broader instrumental hip-hop field but also chillwave (acoustic chill-hop perhaps?), while it differs since the artist ideally combines acoustic instruments with electronic elements glowing with quality. The warm chords and the melodies unleashed, take the listener on a 144 second trip; A brief escape from the sad reality, which is utterly needed.” (Last Day Deaf)

 

DE MOI ''ENAMOURED II'': HOW DOES A DREAM SOUND? LIKE THIS.

As somehow who experiences lucid dreaming on a regular, this track by De Moi has left me feeling similar to what I feel after a wake up form yet another flight through purple skies above a world of unseen creatures and scenarios that are as fascinating, as they are nonsensical.


''Enamoured II'' musically takes from ambient, neoclassial and dream-pop, intersecting beautifully with bits from each of the above and colliding into what is probably the most dream-like tune in my recent memory. Patient and elaborate, the song swings you in on its modular-synth drones, further expanding the lucid horizon with a sequence of captivating, unique sounds appearing all over the spectrum. The production of the tune is wonderfully geeky too, each sound placed carefully and with plenty of expertise. Delightful, lucid, dreamy - treat yourself. (Music Dances When You Sleep)

 

AMBIENT SUNDAY WITH: BORKY, ARTURO, AND DE MOI 

After optimism and pessimism comes acceptance. And that’s what we get with De Moi. From Prague in the Czech Republic, Enamoured II is a calming thoughtful piece. Hardly surprising then to find that De Moi says, “I have been composing since 2007. Although it may seem like a weird thought at first, studying music theory, mastering a variety of instruments, and incorporating mathematics are all ways for me to evoke the emotions I want to evoke.”

Enamoured II is a deeply emotive piece. It has a hissing wash in the background and everything revolves slowly. But it also has heart. An organic texture in among the machine made sounds. Synths throb like some sort of pulsating life force. And it quivers with emotion. Beneath the calm is boiling humanity. (Acid Ted blog)

WHO'S 
DE MOI

De Moi (= Vojtech Vesely) is a music composer who lives and works in the foothills of the White Carpathians, as well as in Prague, Czech Republic. He studied mathematics and natural science in addition to his time spent studying music at Charles University in Prague. He’s continued to study music composition and aesthetics on his own since then.

Vojtech has been composing since 2007, creating music for films, theatrical productions, and computer games, on top of his personal projects, De Moi (lo-fi hip hop, chillhop, ambient) and Billow (dream pop). His compositions have appeared alongside some of today’s biggest musical names featured on the highly-influential channel LA BELLE MUSIQUE.

While De Moi is a solo instrumental project, Vojtech’s other outlet, Billow, is a three-piece dream pop band. Their debut album, Maps, was released in 2017 on Slovakian cassette label Z Tapes. The acoustic lo-fi record received a warm reception from Czech critics; Beehype ranked it the 5th-best Czech album of that year. Vojtech has played nearly 70 concerns with Billow since then, including the Colours of Ostrava festival and Beseda u Bigbítu. The group has also played in support of Russian post-punk band Motorama. They also toured Germany, Austria, and Slovakia and, in 2019, Billow released their sophomore album, Seascape, also on Z Tapes.


DE MOI’S PHILOSOPHY AND APPROACH TO WORK: “MUSIC IS FILLED WITH MATHEMATICAL ELEMENTS”

“We hear a lot about the beauty of music, we hear about the abstract charm of mathematics. Nonetheless, we tend to forget about the beauty of mathematics and the logical structure of musical compositions. These two top branches are inseparable parts of the human spirit and have a number of contact points. Although it may seem like a weird thought at first, studying music theory, mastering a variety of instruments, and incorporating mathematics are all ways for me to evoke the emotions I want to evoke.”
