Deo & Z-Man
Tales of Love EP
Ahead of their much-anticipated debut album, Ham-
burg’s hottest secret is about to be unleashed on the
world. Deo & Z-Man drop their first single for hafendis-
ko, a supreme taster of the future treats in store.
‘Tales of Love’ is a beautifully crafted futuristic disco
gem — and available here in three wildly different and
equally stunning versions.
The boys work their magic on the original with sweet
vocoders, firing disco toms, and perfectly pitched ear
for the happy melancholia of the dancefloor. Perhaps
referencing their italo roots, ‘Tales of Love’ is as perfect
a pop song as you will hear all year.
The guys have been building quite a following in the
underground, not least for their innovative and open
minded live performances and highly creative DJ sets.
And it’s the dancefloor where Tigerskin’s remix belongs

stomper that throws a wicked rhythm guitar into the mix.
The ‘RSS Disco & &_Z_MÆN Remix’ is another thing
entirely – lush, thoughtful and minimalistic in design, the
track finds plenty of room to let the vocals work their
charm, while slowly but surely a spacey disco synth
Clearly heading for great things, Deo and Z-Man have
provided us with a perfect primer for their upcoming al-
bum, and a must have release in its own right.
