David Durango returns with new "Supernature" EP

David Durango, the Swiss based DJ producer, responsible for some great deep and techy house on labels such as Poker Flat, Dessous, Viva and Resopal, follows up his “In The Last Orient EP” for NRK with a bumper package. The “Supernature EP” features three brand new tracks from David, with some added remix pressure from Matthew Styles and Daniel Kyo.

David’s unique sound is on showcase here with his three originals, always production with depth and a healthy soaking of reverb! On “Supernature”, a relaxed tempo picks up the pace with sprightly percussion and cymbals, layered vox and big chords, sweet deep house music at its finest. “Qubota” builds layer upon layer of swinging drum patterns, hypnotic organ stabs, trebly strings and FXd vocal snips; a well put together house track. And the last of David’s originals, “Bad Room” is the more urgent sounding of all the tracks, with moody stabs and headnodding hats, very groovy club stuff from Mr. Durango.

On the remixes, Matthew Styles has been building a great profile over the years, with releases and mixes for Crosstown Rebels, BPitch Control, Rekids and Music For Freaks. His remix of “Supernature” is a muscular, shuffling house groove, tossing around the vocals from left to right, whilst keeping things strictly heads down. And Daniel Kyo helps complete the package with his remix of “Qubota”. Kyo has been super busy the last couple of years, working his sound onto remixes and releases for Noir, Plastic City, Lost My Dog and Milton Jackson’s Dark Energy label. His mammoth remix utilises simple 909 drums, building stabs and classic house bassline, breaking out into filtered piano riff that evokes shades of many a classic house record.

David Durango’s “Supernature EP” will be available on 12” vinyl from August, and digital download in September.
