Melbourne producer Dom Dolla has solidified his status as one of Australia’s leading dance exports with the release of ‘San Frandisco’. Already a huge success, Dom now passes the torch to Brooklyn stalwarts Walker & Royce who have put their own unique wonky tech house touch on the already bass heavy tune, with early support

Dom Dolla‘s “San Frandisco” was a gamechanger for the Australian producer. While he’d been on the rise for quite sometime before its release, the megahit secured his place among the global elite, raking in millions of streams and earning support from Pete Tong to Diplo. Now, the time has come for the piece to be re-worked, and New York duo Walker & Royce have stepped up to bat.

They’ve done a fine job in twisting “San Frandisco” into a piece of their own, taking the grittier house elements Dom Dolla laid on the table and integrating them into a steamy, extraterrestrial cut made for the peak time. Hollow synths and futuristic beeps are superimposed over the original’s melodic progressions, with cheeky vocal bits woven in at just the right moments to increase the song’s energy. The breakdown is breezy as ever, serving as sweet “eye of the storm” before Walker & Royce bring the chaos back post-drop. A suitable follow-up indeed to their enormous debut on Diplo‘s newly christened label, Higher Ground.

Having just minted his Higher Ground imprint, Diplo is now turning a curative eye towards the first-ever Higher Ground showcase, co-produced by Mad Decent and Made Event. Come September 22, Diplo, Walker & Royce, Paul Woolford, Golf Clap, Huxley, SIDEPIECE, Dateless, LP Giobbi, Anden, Fundido, and Lukewarm will descend upon The Brooklyn Mirage for a lucid evening of mellifluous house music.

“[House music] has always been incredibly important to me, and Higher Ground is our homage to the legends and opportunity to champion new sounds and artists from around the world pushing the genre forward,” Diplo writes in a recent press release.

The variety of the event’s roster embodies the sonic diversity that Diplo seeks to instill in the imprint, which will encompass releases spanning tech-house, deep/melodic house, and Afro-infused house, among other styles.

Dirtybird favorites Walker & Royce put forth the label’s inaugural release on Wednesday, with their four-part (two originals, two extended cuts) EP, Rave Grave. Higher Ground is also expected to house a number of Diplo’s own original productions.

Four on the floor enthusiasts can secure tickets to Higher Ground, here.

Who better to erect a record label to inspire house music artists while simultaneously providing them with a playful platform than one of the domain’s most prolific veterans, Diplo? When it comes to enlisting producers who embody the eternally amorphous identity of modern dance music, Diplo is ever one to flex his enduring curatorial foresight; and inviting the voraciously in-demand Walker & Royce to procure the seminal release on the new label solidifies that discernment.

The EP from New York natives Sam Walker and Gavin Royce, Rave Grave features two club detonators, the flippantly fun title track and the melodic tech-house weapon “The Biznes.” The duo’s distinct sound of highly accessible, energetic house music ties together the dancefloor origins of the genre, as well as the modernized, experimental sampling that renders each song in due duo’s distinct repertoire unmistakable. The EP also includes extended cuts of both tracks. Higher Ground’s introductory release has indeed established an elevated benchmark for future success from the young label.

The duo is set to appear later this month on their home court, as Higher Ground presents a Mad Decent-sponsored Brooklyn Mirage takeover, with a performance from Diplo himself in tow. Tickets are on sale now, here.

Mad Decent record label founder, Diplo, is adding a new record label to his collection in the form of a new deep house imprint. The label, Higher Ground, follows the naming convention of the artist’s recent EP, Higher Ground. The label will serve as a platform to showcase both established and up-and-coming talent in house music, and it will serve as a home for Diplo’s own house tracks and collaborations going forward.

“House is where it all came from,” Diplo says of the new endeavor in a press release. “Everything we know and love as dance music today started with the masters in Chicago and Detroit almost 40 years ago. The genre has always been incredibly important to me, and Higher Ground is our homage to the legends and opportunity to champion new sounds and artists from around the world pushing the genre forward.”

Higher Ground enlists Brooklyn-based house duo Walker & Royce for its first release. They will be putting out two singles, “Rave Grave” with VNSSA and “The Biznes” on Sept. 2. The label will also be doing a takeover at The Brooklyn Mirage on Sept. 22. The lineup is yet to be announced, and tickets are on sale here.

Walker & Royce – Bodies Do The Talking

This post was originally published on this site

Walker & Royce – Bodies Do The TalkingWalker Royce 1

In 2017, Self Help became one of DIRTYBIRD‘s top LP releases while also establishing Walker & Royce as high caliber house talents with crossover appeal. It was a truly seminal output for the duo, who went on to tour internationally and further increase their global presence. They’ve officially returned to their Self Help home for their first solo release there in nearly two years—and what a grand homecoming it is.

Bodies Do The Talking is a heady two-tracker. In fact, both of its offerings pack in so much power that one could argue the EP is a double A-side. It starts off deceptively, with smoothed, lo-fi textures in its title track leading listeners to believe they’re in for a mellow ride. Suddenly, however, these pleasant textures give way to absolute destruction, as cunning synth progressions explode over powerful percussion. “Uh-Oh” is the groovier of the two, causing a strong impact on its own via creeping vocals and tense, buzzy hardware buildups that give way to a wild climax. This EP seems to have been made with big crowds in mind, and is certainly effective in its pulverizing mission based off reactions thus far.
