With house music pretty much all sounding the same it doesn’t take much for someone to sound different.
That’s exactly what happened with Darko, in a sea on shiny, over-produced, predictably boring house promos we were trawling through his track ‘Get Up’ immediately stood out a mile, like a shining beacon of hope.
A heady cocktail of fuzzy bass work, elastic melodies and a pounding four-four beat to give it the veneer of familiarity, ‘Get Up’ is everything that forward-thinking house music could be but just isn’t because of the fear. The fear to take risks.
Darko laughs in the face of the fear.
