Rising French artist Darius is someone who should be on your radar if he's not already. If you're already a fan, we have quite the treat for you. If you aren't familiar, then now is a great time to dive into his productions on his debut studio album, Utopia.
The 14-track project is delivered by French label Roche Musique, the label responsible for many of TSIS favorite FKJ's releases. Here they prove their track record once again with an incredible project from start to finish. There's something about Darius' music that has an uplifting, yet calming quality at the same time. His lush soundscapes create a smooth listen from start to finish.
Utopla carries a versatile collection of glossy sounds that are relaxing throughout and refreshingly versatile. While the instrumentals are some of the best we've heard this year, his ability to bring out the best in a vocalist is put on full display. He showcases his unique ability of crafting soulful, atmospheric sound design paired with shuffling percussion that takes different turns, incorporating some trap-inspired portions across the cinematic project. Here Darius proves he has a bright future ahead of himself and we can't wait to see him grow. Enjoy!
