The “Romance” EP by Darius is about as close to perfection as an Extended Play can get. It’s five tracks of pure bliss, the perfect hybrid of Deep Disco, R&B & French House. Artists like Moon Boots, Zimmer & Pat Lok have raved about it. It’s almost impossible to pick a favorite track and it’s impossible not to listen to it over & over. If you are in love or plan on falling in love anytime soon, I highly suggest letting Darius’ “Romance” EP be your guide to cloud nine.
It’s an all Australian affair with one of the country’s most prominent techno lords in Craig Williams and his new EP which just dropped on one of the savviest labels in Sweat It Out. Craig’s mastery of all things analog once again shines on this release. His formula of thumping, four to the floor tracks are fit for the clubs, and the title track ‘Saw Throat’ is garnering support from the likes of Claude VonStroke, Crookers, and Yolanda Be Cool. And for all the budding producers out there, send Craig a receipt of your purchase of the EP and he’ll send you a sample pack which includes the stems for both tracks. What a legend!
“Many people have asked me why and how I make the music I make. My surroundings have always molded how and why I make my sound.”
A GDD favorite and familiar, the Russian native Proxy has emerged back on the scene with a visual statement of the topical situation he lives in. This short film by Sean Robinson was shot in Proxy’s home city of Orekhovo-Zuevo in late Feb 2014, and gives a small insight into what makes Proxy the producer he is. Although a non-political insight into his world, it shows the pressure of his surroundings nonetheless. An elusive character, he invites us to take a subtle look into his life and what the man is about ahead of his Summer run of USA dates, and his new music forthcoming in mid 2014.
Mr. Falcon have a brand new track out that will send you into space. Mr. Falcon is made up of Philly maestros Blueshift & Ily. They’re the most formidable Philadelphia duo since Dr. J & Moses Malone. Mr. Falcon’s new track “Landing Lights” is an ominous, pulsating Deep Progressive track filled with spacey, after hours groove. It’s cosmic, infectious & out of this world.
