Max Styler & Charlie Darker – D2B (Charlie Darker VIP Edit)
The Aftershock EP saw North American prospect Max Styler make with his biggest offering for Dim Mak to date. With standout offering ‘D2B’ alongside Charlie Darker resonating well past the EP’s July release, the budding Toronto heavyweight steps in this month off the heels of his Big Beat debut with his own VIP edit of the track that added to Dim Mak’s stellar summer run.
A heavyset festival contender in its original form, Darker’s edit swings like a wrecking ball, isolating modern trap tendencies that we have never heard from the Toronto talent before whilst embracing the low end frequencies and peak time attitude that made ‘D2B’ a set staple throughout the year. Dim Mak has always celebrated young artists stepping out of their comfort zones, but in this unprecedented VIP edit we find a side to the young talent that few could have called. Charlie Darker made a lot of positive moves in 2015, but this update on ‘D2B’ is a vital nod to the prospects ahead for the versatile Canadian player.
