Frequent collaborator with Benjamin Damage, Doc Daneeka has announced the forthcoming release of a new EP for the Roska Kicks & Snares imprint. The new release, entitled ‘Murdah Strings’ celebrates the golden age of UK funky (yes, there was one) whilst looking forward to the convergence of deep house, techno, IDM and a whole bunch of other things.
The Welsh-born producer has been turning heads for a while, often with Damage by his side, whether it’s their ‘They!Live’ album, their stunning mixes for Boiler Room and XLR8R or their many live performances together. However, that’s not to say they are nothing on their own; Doc’s gloriously upbeat ‘Hold On’ was one of the genre’s finest efforts at escaping the short-term affections of the tragically hip.
Anyway, expect expertly crafted house, pounding kick drums and mutilated string sections. Grab your copy when it comes out June 11 on RKS. In the mean time, listen to the preview of the EP below.
