Art Deko is an electronic musician from Tijuana, Mexico. Earlier this month, he released an album called No Remorse that is, I believe, his debut album. It’s filled with trancey futurepop tracks that contain gorgeous melodies. I love it.
Many of the songs on No Remorse are earlier recordings that previously appeared on Youtube and Spotify, but they’re collected now in a full-length. He primarily sings in English, though there are a couple of tracks in Spanish. Hektor Marin of Nordika guests on a thumper called “Diosa.”
On Bandcamp, Art Deko says his sound is influenced by great electronic artists like Depeche Mode, VNV Nation, Apoptygma Berzerk, Pet Shop Boys, and many others. I can certainly hear the influence, especially VNV, but he also has a unique sound of his own, primarily carried by his beautiful voice.
Check out the tracks “The Fallen Man,” “Silence,” and “There’s a Moment.”
