Following his bomb ‘Booty Jazz’ EP released under the Jupiter Jazz moniker alongside label boss Maceo Plex, Miami’s finest Danny Daze goes solo to release ‘The Calm’ – two original cuts of deep dark house with a stellar remix from Dutch producer Dexter.
Title track ‘The Calm’ opens with a deep pulsating heart, beating and building as sweeping waves of trippy FX roll in and out with doubled up and slightly deranged vocals dominating the atmosphere. Swelling steadily with powerful synth lines and rhythm the track drops dramatically, kicking into a tight rolling groove that rides through the depth and layers.
Picking up the pace class-A producer and remixer Dexter takes the reins to spin his techno twist onto ‘The Calm’. Making music since the mid 90s and with huge releases on the likes on Rush Hour and Clone, the Dutchman is a welcome addition to the Ellum Audio catalogue. Thriving with drive and energy his remix is an essential DJ weapon for any peak time affair.
Rounding off the package ‘I See You There’ is the second original track on offer from Mr. Daze. Continuing in the same vein as ‘The Calm’ the track builds moodily with epic synths, industrial stabs and haunting vocals. Taking a turn it drops into a powerful dance floor bomb with deep, warm keys that beautifully carry the melody.
Already flying high in the game and with a hectic tour schedule lined up and a Radio 1 Essential Mix in the pipeline for this summer. 2013 looks set to be a big one for wonder boy Danny Daze.
