  • Description Fledgling Irish label Antiqua Recordings continue their policy of great music and high profile remixers with their second release, this time from Cork based producer Darragh Casey. Fresh from the debut Antiqua release which saw the likes of Stacey Pullen, Ripperton, Silicone Soul and X-Press 2 nailing their colours to the label's mast we now have the follow up from fresh new talent Darragh Casey. This is Casey's debut release and came through his friendship with label boss John Buckley. For a new label to take on material from an unknown artist can be a risk, in Buckley's word's "I had never imagined releasing an EP from a guy who had so little experience in music production, then Darragh presented me with two tracks; Tauru & Xuri. Both tracks blew me away & I knew then that I had found the label's Second EP". Casey's lack of experience is nowhere in sight on this release with both tracks displaying a depth and maturity that is hugely engaging. The package kicks of with the original version of `Tauru', a bass heavy slice of tech house awash with Detroit inspired strings and broken percussion; this is lush and melodic whilst sticking true to its underground leanings. Following on from the original, `Tauru' gets the remix treatment courtesy of Germany's Markus Homm (Ostwind, Highgrade) who takes the elements and creates a tough house cut is sure to get floor moving. Second of the two tracks comes in form of `Xuri', a beautifully brooding piece of electronica that more than lives up to the expectations created by `Tauru'. Classic 909 percussion and layer upon layer of warm synth lines give this a timeless feel, house music done this well by a production freshman is astounding. The remix of `Xuri' comes from Detroit renegade and current hot property `Kris Wadsworth' who strips things back and delivers a stunning slice of hypnotic music that blurs the lines between house and techno. Antiqua is a label that in its infancy already promises to become a key player in Europe's electronic music scene and this single takes them another step closer. Darragh Casey's `Tauru / Xuri' is released on Antiqua Recordings in January 2010. Julian Shay Dispersion PR
