Danny Daze – The Calm EP
Miami native Danny Daze returns to Maceo Plex’s Ellum Audio with the three-track The Calm EP. Fresh off the release of his Jupiter Jazz side project with the label head himself, he continues his onslaught with a deep minimal cut that uses a set of robotic-sounding vocals that are cast over meticulously layered synths — making for a proper club outing. Dexter takes the reins on the remix, transforming it into a peak time techno track with an added burst of energy. On the flip side, “I See You” is a bit darker, equipped with pulsating chord progressions and a dreary set of vocals in tow. Danny Daze has shown that 2013 is his year to come into the spotlight and with an Essential Mix in the works for this summer, we have no doubt that he’ll make that happen.
