Moscow’s DAR Label Kicks off 2011

Moscow's DAR Label Kicks off 2011Denis A’s Korriban was released in its original deeply dubbed out hypnotic form in the autumn of 2010 (DAR016). Now that Nick Muir has worked his production magic, it has been transformed into a veritable monster! The techno vibes are most definitely flowing with this massive dancefloor destroyer from John Digweed’s Bedrock studio partner.

Nick Muir has been a producer of superb electronic dance music and has been involved in many pivotal moments in the world of club music. He has in many ways helped to define genres and push the boundaries further over the years. Never one to rest on past laurels, Nick Muir is always developing his sound in an exciting direction. His remix of Korriban is a monster, so check it now!

Rising Russian star, Serg Nikitin, returns to DAR following his previous remix of Denis A’s Chemical Test (DAR011V1), with a superb progressive interpretation of Ahnenerbe. Born in Kemerovo in 1981, he moved to Moscow in 2006 and is currently one of the country’s hottest producers. He is also one half of the duo Nikitin and Semikashev, noted for the creation of deep and moody techno/progressive tracks.

Egor Boss also featured as a remixer on Chemical Test (DAR011V1) and its not hard to understand why he’s back on DAR in 2011. Here he fuses energetic elements of techno, tribal, and progressive into his remix interpretation of Ahnenerbe. He is one of the most well-known and productive artists from the new electronic scene in Ukraine. From the beginning of his career in 2006, Egor has created a very unique and personal style, producing and playing what he calls “underground dark intellectual music”. To date he has produced more than forty digital and vinyl releases, and is also involved in promoting eMotional, which is one of the best attended groundbreaking parties in Ukraine.

I recently sat down with Denis A for an exclusive artist interview. More details coming soon.
