Dan Curtin – Galaxies Merging EP
Here’s some straight techno from Dan Curtin, who’s been around techno since 1992.
Galaxies Merging is quite a claim for your opening track. And it doesn’t disappoint. There’s beats to the forefront and synths of an epic scale that build and build. Mind Sweep offers a bit more by way of synth action to give something that veers back into house territory via Chicago. The final track, To Modify, offers a bit of spacey bloopiness. The only choker here is the shortness of the clips, for which apologies.
Blurb: Following Dan Curtin’s superb remix of D-Knox ‘Out There’ in the summer of 2015, EPMMusic welcomes the return of this Metamorphic Recordings legend for his own full-length EP. Dan’s impressive discography dates back to ’92 when his first releases on Detroit’s 33RPM Records and Belgium’s Buzz motivated him to launch his own Metamorphic Recordings. A continuous stream of releases also followed on big players like Peacefrog, Strictly Rhythm, Sublime and SomaRecords. In 2003 Dan’s move to Berlin triggered a string of new releases on labels such as Bass Culture, Holic Trax and Saved. Over 70 singles and 9 albums later, Dan is just as innovative as ever whether recording under his own name or one of his many aliases such as Purveyors of Fine Funk. Dan’s prolific output shows no sign of abating and he recently announced the re-launch of Metamorphic.
