Cat. #: BEDDIGI24
Release Date: September 3rd 2012
2. Let The Show Begin
If you’re talking about exciting underground producers, two of the first names out of anyone’s hat should always be Igor Tchkotoua and Dan Duncan (aka Pig & Dan), whose distinctive mixture of influences has given them a sound that is both innovative and easily recognizable, since they first joined forces back in 1999. Right now, it seems like there’s a non-stop flow of success in the air around these two musical madmen. Their last Bedrock release (“Machines”) in April 2012 was a Beatport Top 5 smash and now “Emotions”/”Let The Show Begin” raises the bar even higher.
From the twisted vocalized intro to the deep, deep bass and subtle synth hooks and drops, “Emotions” is, quite simply, a soulful electronic masterpiece. Whilst “Let The Show Begin”, with its quirky nod to Mr. Mojo Risin’, displays a more direct and intense percussive edge to the powerhouse Pig & Dan arsenal.
Once again, it’s hats off to Bedrock for raising the bar even higher with each release. In this day and age to not only survive as an independent label, but also to flourish and constantly evolve by introducing new talent and pushing established artists to their creative best, is something that should be applauded.
