Dan Ghenacia steps up with a stunning double solo offering with ‘Globe/ Gentelized’, a rare production offering from the Parisian star, this time lending his brand of freakiness to CDR (Crosstown Digital Rebels).
‘Globe’ takes you on a 3am dance floor journey, its steady, driving beats riding the swelling ambience of abstract melodic effects. Psychedelic elements cry in unison, unravelling a blanket of swirling synths in descent and crescendo. ‘Gentilized’ finds its heart in heavy rolling bass and soothing sumptuous female cries. Inspired by Dan’s “Kwality” years at Batofar, this production oozes aquatic sonics and fluid chords, with deep and dreamy layers of percussion pouring over each other. Forging an effortless groove in the bass and hypnotic sweeps of melody, this track is Dan at his playful best.
One of the undisputed pioneers of the Parisian house and techno scene, Dan Ghenacia’s influence is undeniable. Through his productions, revered Freak ‘n’ Chic label now in it’s seventh year, notorious parties at Batofar in Paris and legendary residencies around Europe including DC10 and Space in Ibiza, he has remained at the forefront of the scene for over a decade.
