Premiere: Sirus Hood – WarningSirusHood ThirdEye

A mysterious artist by the name of Sirus Hood stole the attention of the dance world around a half decade ago, perking ears with an array of wild house productions and sets. It didn’t take long for th French native’s heady beats to make their way to Claude VonStroke and Justin Martin, who promptly brought him into the Dirtybird fold. The rest is history,

After spending some time flying free from the nest, he now returns to Dirtybird with a stripped-down, grooving tech house two-piece titled Third Eye. Its opener, “Warning,” is minimal, yet chunky at the same time, pairing raunchy basslines and crisp percussion together into a satisfying backdrop for hits of laser and vocal edits. The result? A deep, grooving club cut that works as a good warm-up for peaktime hours.

DA Playlist Selects:

PaulWetz- “Third Eye”

At just 20-years-old the German-hailing PaulWetz is already satiating dancefloors around the world. Returning with “Third Eye” – a collaboration with UK singer Christen Kwame — PaulWetz delivers a provoking late-night production hinting that listeners will need to keep all eyes and ears alert to see just what the new year holds.

Deisen- “Zentrifugal”
Born and raised amidst the same very streets that shaped Kraftwerk, in Düsseldorf, Germany, Deisen lives up to his regional heritage. Having spent time in Germany, Vermont, and Brooklyn, Deisen’s music is a visceral reaction, which he claims on his SoundCloud page pulls him “into a life void of creativity and motion.” Presently, Deisen has released his dazzling Zentrifugal Ep, which he’s described as “a portal to daydreams of naivety, farewells, overcoming, dancing.”


Yöurr – “Fall Apart.”
PaulWetz- “Third Eye”
APIS – “Proof”
London Grammar  – “Oh Woman Oh Man (Gus Miller Remix)”
Deisen – “Zentrifugal”
