After a number of releases with support from names like Mikix the Cat, Angel Stoxx, Trockensaft, Umek, Dubfire and many more, Dark & stormy brings us a new EP.  As suspected, he delivers full force with this new Ep Dance to This out on Metamimetic Records.

While sticking to his roots and maintaining his signature Tech House and Tropical sound, Dark & Stormy adds a more accessible element to the lead track “We’re Gonna’ Have a Good Time” which is a all out party tune for ANY occasion.  Harkening back to the days of parachute pants and bad hair, this 90’s house stomper brings the heat with a great mixture of 90’s house, Tech House and Hip House.

Much Love,

Today saw the release of Zulu X-Ray, the latest EP from GDD homies Zedex (formerly ZX). The young British house duo have put out a stormer of a record, featuring guest vocals from Brooklyn based label-mate Sam Wilkes. This week we caught up with Jamie Graham and James Trayford of Zedex to talk about their new release, recent name changes, and dancing dirty. Here’s how it played out…

GDD: Thanks for taking the time to chat guys. So starting from the top, how did ZEDEX come about?

James Trayford: We were at school in Peterborough together, but while there we’d both been playing in this electro-rock band called Cut This City, without much success. As our influences changed we started a side project, quickly becoming our main project, called ZX.

GDD: Why the recent name change from ZX to ZEDEX though?

Jamie Graham: People were complaining that they couldn’t find our stuff so we decided to make it more search engine-friendly. Zedex is way easier to google than the two letters of ZX…

JT: …plus we’re not as big as the games console or Citroen car yet!

GDD: What influenced your sound starting up, and who influences you now?

JT: We’d always been aware of the original french house stars, Bangalter, Modjo et al. , but it wasn’t really until 2007 with bands like Bag Raiders, Cut Copy, Van She coming out of Australia and the breakthrough of Justice and the Ed-Banger guys from France that we really got excited about electronic music. Fenech Soler, who come from a village near us were the only electro band to pretty much ever come from this area and supported us right from the start, letting us remix their track ‘LA Love’. They were pretty good mentors early on I guess. We’ve got a pretty wide range of musical influences spanning to rock bands like The Mars Volta and Deftones, or more experimental stuff like Brian Eno, and Danny Elfman.
