Steve Angello dishes ‘Payback,’ long-awaited Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman collaboration
Just months into 2014, Size Records has been an undisputed industry leader on all fronts. Giving the brand forward-thinking distinction in tandem with its creative agency of Rebel Studios, its surface appears as well-polished as any label’s — a product of its core, where its releases offer studio work highly-developed, attention to detail is practiced like religion in the studio, and the results hit daylight only when nothing short of meticulous.
Following this year’s track record back to its first release of Junior Sanchez’s “Without You,” through unavoidable hits like Ivan Gough & Jebu’s “Noxu,” and even up to yesterday’s emergence of Merk & Kremont’s “Amen,” Size has pinpointed and executed on a common denominator: assaulting, aggressive records that capture its audience’s desire for grand-scale sounds while sticking to its respectable insignia.
No record from the label’s hefty backlog of unreleased music could bring such persona to culmination like “Payback,” where Steve Angello joins Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman to do just that. Angello takes the lead with the emerging stars from his wing for a collaboration that embodies the mean, gritty, and emotionally provocative styles of its camp. Sitting on “Payback” since last summer, and welcoming wide-spread acclaim with each and any of its live testings, Steve, Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman reach the pinnacle of the brewing take-no-prisoners approach to electronic music and open the floodgates for the remaining records in the Size queue that’s had the imprint’s fans near and far biting nails upon debuts.
