Proxy Release ‘Collusion’ EP Featuring AC Slater & More via Night Bass
Proxy has made a name for himself over the last decade as a mysterious maestro comfortable with creating unusual and inexplicably extraordinary beats. His strangely spellbinding sound has commanded dance floors all over the world, including high-profile performances at Coachella, EDC Las Vegas, France’s I Love Techno, Creamfields, HARD Summer, Electric Zoo and many more. His signature sound is as dark as it is beautiful. Without losing the modernity of his production, Proxy includes the raw sounds that inundated the bass scene. His engagement in such reconstruction has resulted in an experimental sound atypical to EDM’s current scene. It’s hallmarked with futuristic vibes, razor-sharp hooks, hypnotic breakdowns, and jagged synths.
Proxy burst onto the scene earning respect and awe from heavyweights such as Justice, Soulwax, and Erol Alkan for his astonishing, severe tracks like “Decoy,” the massive 2011 hit “Raven,” and “Dance in Dark” which was part of his 2013 debut opus, Music From The East Block Jungles. More recently, he’s released “Break Your Skull” with Lektrique, the Stupid Serious EP in March 2018, and the Language Barrier EP later that year.
Following a nearly year-long hiatus, the Collusion EP begins with “Have Some Fun,” a collaboration with the Night Bass Records label head himself, AC Slater, which was premiered on Dancing Astronaut yesterday. Then Proxy picks up the pace with the euphoric bass house cut “No More” with UK Garage producer Armodine. The journey peaks with the Paxmen-assisted “Fitness” and its huge basslines which demonstrate Proxy’s classic ability to create simple but hugely energetic music. The EP comes to a dramatic close with the This Song Is Sick-premiered “Poltora,” a collaboration with well-known Russian producer DZA which is a taste of Proxy’s new flavor of tech house.
