DA Premiere: Dast – Ixor (Pig&Dan Remix)
Techno stars Pig&Dan are coming off a dream year in clubland. Between #1 Beatport tracks, lauded releases for Drumcode and their own ELEVATE, and appearances alongside dance icons Adam Beyer and John Digweed, 2016 was definitely a career year for the duo. Never content to rest on their laurels, P&D have come out of the new year swinging, delivering an explosive menacing remix for Italian rising star Dast on Drumcode-affiliate Luca Agnelli’s Etruria Beat label.
Quite the track in itself, Pig&Dan’s take on “Ixor” drives the energy to an even darker devilish territory. Building with thick 909 kicks and a faint vocal loop, layers of brutish synths swell as cymbals clatter above and hint at the madness ahead. The result is a no-frills dark techno beast ready for full throttle peak-time action. It’s no wonder that Etruria Beat continues to be a favorite label for some of techno’s leading stars with releases such as this, definitely expect more from both the duo and the Eturia Beat imprint as the year unfolds.
Pig&Dan’s “Ixor” remix will be released on January 23, but is available to stream in advance below:
