Mexico’s maestro of deep dons his third full length album on Harmonious Discord with The Love I Own; a collection of love songs drawing inspiration from deep house, lofi house, and techno. Ivan Dbri has been contributing to the HD imprint for over 10 years and we are excited to give his breathe of work the opportunity to collate into this very special release. Reminiscent of early Timewriter and Terry Lee Brown Jr. works Ivan blends staccato percussion with ultra-lush soundscapes, creating dynamically musical compositions that touch the soul.

A musically complex intro Prelude to Sex features organic percussion that lifts effortlessly into dance territory. Deep and romantic house music compositions like When the Music Feels Like Crying and Endless help listeners dive deep into their heads and propagate beauty in their surroundings. Knowledge Base wakes us up to lush dance territory with colliding house chords and synthetic accents floating lightly over rich pads. Sodoma and Gomorra gives us the same depth but with the pads in the back seat and features musical trills and uplifting accents amid a tense bass construction. What True Love is All About and The Love I Own return us to deep house territory with heavy lo-fi and breakbeat elements showing Ivan’s ability to construct timeless music with range and depth. The breakdown in the The Love I Own creates a weightless atmosphere and floats listeners into uncharted depths. Love Letters for You is an HD favorite; the perfect blend of music and technology. Tense chord lifts and light techno drum constructions make this a perfect tool for any set. Danke closes us out with proper tribute to vocal house. Swung percussion, fat square bass lines and cut vocals provide a proper send off to this delicious album.
