DJ Angelo returns to the Stereo MC’s’ connected label with a superb new EP featuring two hypnotic house cuts.
DJ Angelo is a respected producer and DJ who has been a mainstay of the electronic music scene in his native Greece for some time. While a key player in the Greek market, he’s also taken his talents globally to some of dance music’s go-to hot spots such as Ibiza, New York and London. He has released on labels like Saved, Armada, Rise and of course connected in the past, with his last record for the UK label dropping exactly two years ago. ‘Black Sheep’ was hugely well received at the time, picking up support from the likes of Dixon, Black Coffee and Danny Tenaglia and this latest offering is sure to follow in its footsteps.
The release opens with title track ‘Babel’, a deep cinematic offering with squelchy acidic synths, rising percussion and a plaintive female vocal refrain that hangs in the air. Understated and mesmerising, this is another emotive winner from DJ Angelo. The second of the two cuts comes in the shape of ‘Radar’, a more propulsive and direct affair that journeys into darker musical territory with jagged synth rhythms and a brooding sense of tension.
DJ Angelo’s ‘Babel’ EP is released on connected on 17th July.
