  • Description Introducing Dance:Revolt Recordings, a new label formed by a collection of scene veterans that is sure to make immediate waves on the international house music scene. Dance:Revolt is the brainchild of renowned Florida-based DJ/producer Atnarko in cahoots with Dub Creative Group, an industry-established marketing and media team as well as hosts of internationally renown house music events. The label is intended as "a celebration of music and lifestyle," working within a variety of formats, including vinyl 12" issues of Dance:Revolt's releases.

    It's only fitting that the inaugural release be from Atnarko himself. His recent exploits have earned him much acclaim, with "Thinking Of You," a collaboration with vocalist Sam Mollison for Fred Everything's Lazy Day Recordings, being a recent highlight. Atnarko launches Dance:Revolt with the deceptively titled "Violent Sky." As violent as the sky might be, Atnarko's sublime cut is a smooth, bouncy, and deep affair propelled by a slinky rhythm track and an entrancing melodic riff. A strange spoken vocal can be found floating within the sonic space adding a bit of mystique. "Violent Sky" is a prime groover, queued and ready for the next set.

    The enigma continues with Three Piece Suit, an assumed moniker of a producer who wishes to remain anonymous. Three Piece Suit's version builds off the melody and places it on top of a polished breakbeat rhythm. Layers of lush synths round out the cut making it an excellent counterpart to the original. This is followed by a mix from Texas producer Rey Aguilar (Fade Records, petFood). Rey's rework brings things back to house music's four-on-the-floor for a nightclub-ready treatment with peak time elements. The big breakdown section at midpoint should shake things up nicely. Finally, Mallorca-via-Baltimore producer Lomez (Hypercolour, My Favorite Robot) adds his seasoning to a slightly darker take characterized by hefty analog-style synth stabs, a chunky mid-tempo beat, and a growling low end. It's an evocative mix that will fit perfectly among covert after-hour gatherings.
