Producer Laidback Luke breaking down boundaries with new techno EP “NewYork Five-” under Dark Chanell alias
Diving straight in first single ‘Hutch’ is a brooding five-minute production, with deftly layered drums and percussive elements that build momentum and drive the track forward. The second and final track ‘Foxy Town’ perfectly embodies its name, as Luke brings back the funkier side of the genre, for an electro-infused, upbeat soundtrack that was made for the rave.
With the unveiling of his Dark Chanell alias earlier this year, his techno past was a revelation to some, and a much-awaited return for others. With rapturous support from industry heavyweights and tastemakers alike, the sophomore Dark Chanell EP sees Luke set his intentions for the project, playing with soundscapes from across the techno spectrum to offer a taste of the diverse range of tracks that is still to come from the Dutch stalwart.
