"This is the new sound like everybody is playing now, you can see it in all the good parties underground. There is many good artists playing it like Solomun, Maceo Plex, David Guetta. This is the sound of the future. Some think it is shamanic house, some call it more like folkloric, even some think it's something from the past. It is also something like rock but at the same time it is more spiritual. You can even feel God when you listen to this, it is like magical, you know like real magic."
Calypso Records bosses Iñigo Vontier & Thomass Jackson are linking up for the first time for a special four-tracker titled Dork Disco. A tongue-in-cheek jibe at one of Beatport's hottest new genres, the EP is a collection of avant-garde electronics dedicated to the lost souls of the dance floor. Our pick is the title track, a hypnotic, shape shifting cut that moves through the motions, and features an exclusive interview (transcript above) with one of the creators of the genre.
