Danny Daze returns with four rough, gritty and grounded tracks, two of which feature Brazillian producer and Omnidisc affiliate RHR.
Danny has been collaborating with RHR since 2015 when he first received his demos from the São Paulo favelas. Since then Danny has taken RHR under his wing, featuring the talented producer on Omnidisc showcases and releasing the collaborative Ginga EP in 2016 plus RHR’s solo debut 12” last year on Omnidisc. RHR is once again back on Omnidisc, assisting Danny with some of his most explorative productions yet.
Opening cut ‘Mindfluck’ is a dense and menacing sludge fest featuring layers of distorted synthetics, mechanized vocals, and trance-like synths that penetrate through the darkness. ‘Simbiozes’ features RHR and is a powerful mixture of industrialized IDM and left-field techno. On the flip, ‘Propaganda & Manipulation’ is a raw, bass-heavy club track packed with sinister synths, bouncing rhythms and twisted, mantra-like vocals. RHR then returns for the tough, hip-hop infected ‘Planet’, which closes out the EP with crunchy 808 kicks and a powerfully throbbing low end.
Releasing amidst a crisis that threatens the very existence of underground electronic music, Danny and the Omnidisc crew feel there has never been a more important time to band together and support each other’s local music communities. Recognizing both the vital role that record stores play in building and maintaining local scenes and the precarious situation these stores now find themselves in, Omnidisc will be donating 50% of the EP’s sales to Miami-based independent record store Technique Records.
“Supporting our hometown cultural institutions during this global crisis is important to me in preserving the chainlink, when (financially) their existence is under attack. Record shops like Technique Records in my hometown (Miami) play an important role in the development of our independent music scene. Lending any support to some of these institutions through these uncertain times is crucial for the vitality of independent music around the world.” - Danny Daze
Propaganda & Manipulation follows recent Omnidisc EPs from Anthony Rother and Vivian Koch and will be released on May 6th.
