Just as the chill of the northern hemisphere winter 2016 sets in, John Debo’s Mindwarp imprint awakens after a near 18-month hibernation with a bear of a release from Josh Dupont & Dan Snow aka Extended Play due 5th December. Not to name drop, but their work has already featured on labels such as Bedrock, Crosstown Rebels, Fade & Prisoner of Love. Quite an impressive feat for a couple of boys from Texas! Houston native, Josh DuPont has been working many years performing and opening for many major artists with a Texas landmark label, Kinda Super Disco. Actively seeking the best that the industry has to offer, he is now ready to bring the world a new sound of House and Techno.
Chicago born and raised, Dan Snow brings a unique sound with Classical and Jazz influences into the dance music industry. Inspired by the Chicago-born House genre, he has now branched his sound into Techno, with fusions of Cinematic, Percussive, and heavy Guitar layers. As they extend their reach into the hearts and ears of House and Techno fans, they are now setting to place their footprint in the dance music industry with the name, Extended Play.
The title cut, ‘Sounds Like Glitter’, opens with a powerful bass groove, slowly evolving with soft, percussive melodies to a killer breakdown where Dan’s classical and jazz musical training shines through with his intricately interwoven guitar riffs & melodies. Not straying from the musicality of the original for a moment, Mindwarp bossman John Debo goes full steam ahead delivering both a remix and heavier dub version, already garnering early support from John Digweed on his globally syndicated Transitions radio show.
Rounding out the package, ‘Sunset Strip’ picks up where ‘Sounds Like Glitter’ leaves off. More interwoven melodies, big percussion, and attention to detail translate into another deep, meandering affair comfortably at home on any of the world’s underground music stages, regardless of how large or small.
