Darius’s latest project is his label Moxy Muzik which launched its first release back in December 2018. After just turning 1 year old the label boss is kicking off 2020 with original FUSE resident, Rich NxT to collaborate on their 2 part ‘Ying Yang’ EP. You’ll find Italian producer Dimmish with a killer remix on the package too.
Moxy’s first release from Darius with his ‘Dance of The Shaman’ original rapidly landed in that coveted No.1 spot, and the labels output has been heavily supported by Laurent Garnier, Derrick May and Kerri Chandler.
After Rich NxtT met FUSE London founder, Enzo Siragusa in Ibiza, he was instrumental in helping to build the brands musical identity making the now infamous Sunday free party one of London’s best kept clubbing secrets. As a producer, Rich has a keen ear for detail. His unique take on the House aesthetic has won him many industry fans including The Martinez Brothers and Jamie Jones.
Part 1 ‘This Side’ opens with ‘Soul Fire’ with its skippy percussion and energetic bassline, it nods back to the 90s US House inspired by artists like Junior Vazquez and Chez Damier. “This was a sound which first got me into all this music” says Darius. Dimmish takes the original motifs and injects his trademark Italian flair for a more upbeat peak-time groover.
Joining Darius on the final two tracks which make ‘That Side’ of this EP is Rich NxT – making this their debut collaboration. They’ve managed to inject a unique flavour on ‘Space Pirate’ especially with that off kilter vocal cut with tons of tech swagger. ‘Derby Tackle’ is a whole different offering, a spiky acidic vibe with character and class.
