Darius Syrossian delivers the ‘Revolution’ EP, his first solo release on Mar-T’s highly regarded label, Wow! Recordings.
Infamously outspoken DJ, producer, label boss and radio host Darius Syrossian has strongly positioned himself as one of the UK’s finest recent exports. Past releases on the likes of Yousef’s Circus Recordings, Steve Lawler’s very own VIVa Warriors and Jamie Jones’ Hot Creations presented him the opportunity to showcase his skills in the studio, whilst an ever-hectic touring schedule (including a current residency at Sankeys Ibiza) has seen him demonstrate his prowess behind the decks too. Despite ‘Revolution‘ coming only coming as his debut solo offering on Wow! Recordings, Darius has previously teamed up with fellow UK producer Doorly to devastating effect for their 2016 collaborative EP ‘Reality Check‘.
Firing off proceedings for the release is ‘Applebum‘, an energetic tech-laden groover that teases and opens up with a sample of from A Tribe Called Quest’s cult classic, ‘Bonita Applebum’, before progressing with headstrong drums, synths and a blisteringly powerful bassline. The track that follows is a remix of ‘Applebum’ from Wow! Recordings’ head honchos Luca Donzelli & Mar-T. The pair choose to loop the enslaving Tribe sample throughout, adding several percussive elements and a killer breakdown during the track.
The final track to round off the release is the self-titled ‘Revolution’, a dark, pulsating number that sees Darius Syrossian combine soulful vocals with low-end drums, crashing cymbals, yodeling synths and an uncompromising bassline. A really well put together EP that we at Dance Vici are proud to get behind.
‘Revolution’ EP is available now exclusively via Beatport and two weeks later at various other outlets.
