It has been nearly 5 years since I copped my first Proxy track back in the good ol’ “blogosphere” days. And yet, here we are, 5 years later, and still there is only one producer making anything that remotely resembles The Proxy Sound, and that’s the man Proxy himself.
There’s something to be said for being truly unique, especially in today’s cookie cutter dance music world, where genres seemingly grow tired the second they begin to gain steam. Electro, Fidget, Dubstep, Progressive House, Trap… they’ve all carved out their niche, and refreshingly Proxy fits neatly into approximately zero of them.
He’s back in the US for a brief stint of big time shows listed above (including a stop in Hollywood tonight at Sound Nightclub) and he’s blessed us with this stellar DJ mix filled with tracks from some of my personal favorite purveyors of all things techno nouveau, as my Italian friends Blatta & Inesha like to call it.
Peep the tour dates in the graphic above, and get the track list for the mix below and a little something extra after the jump!
