We Deserve This is a one man project formed in the year 2010 by JanDirk Platek. He was born in 1976 in Germany and he is a multiinstrumentalist who plays all the instruments on the record. We are used to hear edgy postrock / post metal tunes from him. In the past Jan created beautiful but heavy instrumentals with guitars, drums and bass. While recording Fusion, he didn’t touch the guitars. In this album Jan creates symphonic music with the piano as the most important element.
Inspired by Hammock, Ludovico Einaudi and HeklAa he composed six melancholic and sad songs with beautiful textures and slow beats. We Deserve This new album “Fusion” is an ambient/postclassical journey with wonderful harmonies and warm melodies. This album is kind of overwhelming with all the string arrangements and melodies. You can't even say that this is a postrock record. The "rock" element with real drums and massive guitar walls is no longer important.
We Deserve This has reached a new level in songwriting and you won't regret a single second listening to it. This record is a very melancholic piece of music. "Fusion" is the perfect album for our modern, hectic style of living. Don't hurry just close your eyes and dive into the sound. It's more Ambient than Rock and it makes you forget your bad day. Try it, you won't regret it.
