Sarcelles, Val d’oise, France — You have to be constantly on the lookout for the slightest musical novelty if you don’t want to miss a nugget in the middle of a torrent of musical news. This nugget sparkles to the point of dazzling our ears and has a prestigious name: I Keef.
Its author, DJ Reex, after a remarkable debut on the French scene, continues to mark a long musical road guaranteed to meet success with each of his new releases. This new stage in his musical journey is entitled “I Keef”; a title that then bears his name admirably since we can only really enjoy this wonder.
Who is Reex?
Before being able to analyze a sound as it should be, the first – and most crucial – step is to determine who, exactly, is the author of it. Composer emeritus, with his previous successes, DJ Reex has built himself by dint of articulating new and intoxicating sounds from his turntables.
DJ Reex has certainly only recently emerged on the electro scene but, already, this one has not failed to illustrate himself brilliantly on Soundcloud where his previous titles appear. This DJ, whose importance is growing among the French and
even the international house scene, however, only started his career a few years ago.
Indeed, it was in 2019 that this French composer, born in Normandy, really began to invest in the house scene. Before appearing in front of the world and regaling his fans with his innovative and nevertheless pop-tinged musical compositions, he had then begun his journey by developing his first scores at the age of 13.
Reex rise reaches a new high point with I Keef
I Keef, the latest track in the young composer’s career, is intended for the author as a way to renew himself while being part of an artistic continuity that will not alienate his fans. DJ Reex, in fact, will have several times accomplished his transformation on the musical level when he had initially made himself known with the tropical house.
Attached to a Dance Pop repertoire that has not left anyone indifferent – especially with titles such as Summer Wave or Craz – DJ Keef is committed to constantly evolving in order to better perfect his musical style. Without ever denying himself, this talented composer, as of 2020, will then have invested in the Slap House scene of which he is one of the most worthy representatives. I Keef, as such, constitutes a new glory of this recent style of house that just needs to be exploited more to better delight fans of the genre.
Reex, the Slap House, and I Keef
This will obviously not have escaped anyone, but the house scene has not failed to evolve constantly since its already distant emergence. If such a musical style has been able to maintain its prestige after so many years, it is above all because it has been able to adapt to technical novelties as well as to the musical trends of the moment by not failing to be inspired by them. House is indeed a living style that, in its momentum, has led to a multitude of subgenres being attached to it.
It is indeed reductive today to speak only of French House when this current, by itself, already encompasses a few dozen different varieties. Among these varieties, one of them will have stood out especially in 2018: Slap House, which DJ Reex wisely draws inspiration from by bringing I Keef to our ears.
Reex: the ideal ambassador of Slap House made in France
Slap House is this musical style that differs from other varieties of House due to the use of an energetic bass combined with house jamming. It was born from the compositions of Dynoro, especially when the latter elaborated on In My Mind which marked the birth of this atypical and delectable musical current.
In 2020, less than two years after the emergence of Slap House, DJ Reex released I, Keef, thus modestly marking a new stage in the history of the movement. Because after having taken care to study and experiment with this musical genre, DJ Reex then had the idea of innovating by composing a piece inspired by Slap House, while adding to the latter that Pop sound that knows how to please the greatest number.
I Keef, beyond the simple musical title, is also intended to be a musical event that everyone must experience at least once in their life. The sound of the bass that appears there will undoubtedly remain in the minds as this one is striking.
What to remember about DJ Reex before you find out?
DJ Reex is not one of those composers who are content to surf a musical movement; because when he became aware of Slap House, DJ Reex took care to always try to bring his brand to it in order to help it evolve.
Indeed, if DJ Reex fell on the turntables from the age of 13 to make the best use of them, it is above all with the intention of perfecting himself and evolving musically. Still relatively young when he releases I, Keef, today, having barely launched himself on the music scene in 2019, this House enthusiast from Normandy aims to push the limits of electro ever further. And this, always having in mind to try to please his most loyal listeners who, after just one listen, remained charmed by his style and the tone of his creations. The bass sound so symptomatic of Slap House, in fact, never leaves anyone indifferent.
Where can I get I Keef from Reex?
For now, I Keef is sticking to an exclusive broadcast on Soundcloud. Subscribers of the platform, whether they are loyal to DJ Reex or simply curious, will be able to enjoy themselves by feasting their eardrums with a listen to I Keef.
The title, intended to be shared by as many people as possible, will naturally spread on other music streaming platforms as of July 30. Summer, in fact, is very well intended for listening to such a catchy song.
