Serge Devant Brings Back Old-School EDM With New Album Rewind at SET on April 15

Electronic dance music is officially in love with its own sonic past. All across the international scene, you can hear the recycling of classic styles from the '70s, '80s, and '90s.

Now hate all you want, but the fact remains: Some of the golden oldies truly nailed a timeless formula for the dance floor. Just ask DJ-producer Serge Devant.

His new sophomore album, Rewind, on Ultra Records takes things back -- as its name implies -- to the old-school EDM sounds that he holds dear.

Rewind is an homage to the now-classic gems that the Russian-born Devant heard as a recent immigrant hanging out at seminal New York City nightclubs like Tunnel, Twilo, and Limelight in the '90s.

Serge Devant's Rewind Tracklist

1. "Dice" Featuring Hadley

2. "3am Eternal" Featuring Taleen

3. "Far Away" Featuring Danielle Parente

4. "When You Came Along" With Danny Inzerillo, featuring Polina

5. "You & Me" With Rachael Starr

6. "On Your Own" Featuring Coyle Girelli

7. "True Faith"

8. "Ghost" Featuring Hadley

9. "Xylo"

10. "African Fever"

11. "D Train"

12. "Novarupta"

The track selection boasts his own modern twist on hits by electronica pioneers like New Order, William Orbit, and KLF. But the record is not all retro fodder -- there are also original bangers like the soon-to-be-a-hit single "On Your Own," featuring vocalist Coyle Girelli.

Devant's survey of dance music's past has certainly given him enough insight into how to get the big rooms of the world's megaclubs fist-pumping in unison. Find out for yourself when he stops by SET on his Rewind tour.
