In a musical world heavily focused on the straight lines, drumming its beats stringently four on the floor, artists who break out of the classical rhythm always tend to catch one’s ears and eyes. John Wallis is one of those. Constructing complex sonic cathedrals from a mind- and toolset born of both the UK as the EU, the artist going by the name of Decka, presents quite a unique panoply of sounds to his willing listeners. His music reflects a fascinating blend of bone-stripping Techno and blissfully blinding Bass, forging a musical mélange looking both to the big room Industrial sound of the German capital, where he nowadays resides as well as the sub-low pressure rooted in his hometown of Bristol. His intriguing take on modern electronic music is not only seen and heard in his own productions and club performances, but also on his very own label Unterwegs, which he founded with his partner in crime, The Lady Machine, to provide a base for likeminded souls, sharing their musical vision. Decka represents a very distinct kind of musician. The kind that doesn’t dwell too much in the realms of theory and planned perfection. His approach to electronic music is born out and based in the very present. That exact moment when it’s just him, his machines, and the never-ending beat. As it should be.
