Glum faced producer and DJ Daniel Avery has something to smile about – a new EP, entitled Water Jump, will arrive on Phantasy Sound later this month.
Bet you didn’t see this coming: Erol Alkan and Switch have teamed up for a release on the former’s Phantasy Sound imprint which comes with remixes from Bok Bok and Willie Burns.
In a recent interview Dazed Digital published between Kindness front man Adam Bainbridge and the perennially popular Erol Alkan, the two touched on an interesting discussion regarding the current state of remix culture. Bainbridge quite rightly pointed out that remixes were once a “different form of expression of the track” while now content hungry labels and digital agencies treat them as crass marketing tools. This is especially prevalent in the cesspool that is now the “blogosphere” where unworthy producers are commissioned to produce unnecessary remixes just to hammer home the point some insignificant band have some terrible and derivative single out.
The star of London based producer Daniel Avery continues to rise, with news he has signed to Erol Alkan’s Phantasy Sounds label and will release an EP for the imprint later this month.
