Darius Draws On French House Influence For Sexy New ‘Oasis (Prelude)’ EP


Parisian producer, Darius, has been steadily making music for nearly a decade now. Inspired by the mid-tempo, filtered French Touch of Daft Punk, Cassius, Stardust and others, and taking additional cues from funk, disco and R&B, Darius’ music has always remained on a tier of its own. We featured him on the site back in 2017 with his atmospheric debut album, Utopia, and we’re still as excited now to be featuring him today. His latest gift is his Oasis (Prelude) EP, out now via Roche Musique.

The EP is a sonic journey through worlds both deliberately and organically molded in the minds and capable hands of Darius and his collaborators. His collab with Benny Sings, “RISE,” feels as though you’re placidly floating above everything and everyone else, outside of time and space, like the coolest Parisian club night set on the International Space Station. Another notable highlight is the sultry, groove-filled “FEELS RIGHT” which features vocals and instrumentation from Duñe. The rest of the EP continues to take you on a journey, with adrenaline-filled features from the likes of Wayne Snow, Amaria, and Flwr Chyld.

Being that this project is presented as a prelude, one can only hope that there will soon be more to follow. We’re ready for whatever Darius has in store for us but for now stream the EP below and enjoy!
