Premiere: Alican – Complex Simplicity [Isolate]

Next on Isolate is co-founder Alican, whose music has previously graced labels such as Kompakt, Get Physical and Gigolo. The Magazine EP is a fresh three track selection that’s already been picking up early support from Dixon, Âme and Trikk – this is perfect for late nights and serious dance floor moments. ‘Complex Simplicity’ is a deep chunky work-out, with a cleverly constructed soundscape that builds and intensifies, yet retains energy until the breakdown. The vibe then switches with the introduction of its mad synth line. “Magazine EP” is available 25 January on Isolate Soundcloud Artist Page [soundcloud url=”https://soundcloud.com/deep-house-london/premiere-alican-complex-simplicity” comments=”true” auto_play=”false” color=”8cd3f6″ ...

DHA AM Mix #247 By Magit Cacoon

Magit Cacoon is what they might describe in America as a ‘triple threat’. DJ; producer; vocalist; her three identities feed into each other and blur into one synergised creative force.

Her busy, high-profile tour diary is testament to her quality behind the decks, with previous appearances for Circoloco at DC-10, for Lost In A Moment in her home country, on multiple Crosstown Rebels tour dates as far afield as Miami Music Week, all across Europe and ...

DHL Mix #246 By Hungry Music

Hungry Music was born from the chance encounter of three artists, each with their own universe, but a common taste in sound esthetic.

In 2015, they created  ‘Hungry Band’ , a live performance uniting the skills of Worakls (piano), N’to (machines), and Joachim Pastor (guitar). Welcome to the first DHL mix of the new year, mix #246 by Hungry Music Soundcloud Artist Page [soundcloud ... Read more
