The triple threat DJ, producer, and instrumentalist, Steve Darko, is back on DIRTYBIRD to release Abyss, a new two-track EP that is sure to satisfy your appetite for glorious synth mastery.
Combining all of the elements of electronic music we love most, Darko’s Abyss EP is a diverse body of work. Though only two tracks long, the EP takes you on a journey through genre and sound. The title track, “Abyss,” pleases the ears with its warm, analog textures. Each succeeding element adds more dimension to the track, as new peaks are discovered from beginning to end. The closing track, “Stay Awake,” shakes up the EP with its club-centric beat. Proving Darko’s ability to produce a variety of flavors, the tech-house vibes of “Stay Awake” round out the chill production of the title track.
Darko drew upon his past influence for this newest EP, commenting “I wrote this record shortly after wrapping up my album Midnight Swim, and I think some of the vibe from the album carried on into Abyss.”
We are excited to give you the first listen to Darko’s Abyss EP below. Abyss releases everywhere tomorrow, May 20. Enjoy!
