Still early in his career, Dannic has curated many of Revealed Recording’s most destructive dance floor weapons, the most recent bomb being “Clobber.” This week he retreats to Hardwell’s imprint with another original production to once again raise the bar for up-and-coming artists. “Viper” boasts a wide array of percussion, from rolling drums to snapping bass kick, all for the cause of a rhythm that is set to devastate the summer circuit. One time Stargazer, Dannic dives head first into the sea of progressive talent and finds himself waist-deep with the release of “Viper.”
With his name firmly set among Revealed Recordings beloved Dutch talent pool and a guest mix for our own Axis Radio show behind him, Jordy Dazz makes an inaugural move on Doorn Recordings with stellar electro stomper “Bitsize.” Having sold Sander Van Doorn vinyl in his earlier years as a record teller, Jordy’s label debut suggests that the Dope & Dirty Radio host is catching up considerably to his long serving national peer. Packed full of strong melodic ascents and warped effects, the core of “Bitsize” takes the shape of a percussive electro offering with the same beat-savvy focus as Jordy has consistently purveyed. Big drums, scattered synth and unquestionable peak time elegance are the icing on the cake for yet another quality cut from this seemingly unstoppable Dutch trailblazer. (more…)
