If youre talking about exciting underground producers, two of the first names out of anyones hat should always be Igor Tchkotoua and Dan Duncan (aka Pig & Dan), whose distinctive mixture of influences has given them a sound that is both innovative and easily recognizable, since they first joined forces back in 1999. Right now, it seems like theres a non-stop flow of success in the air around these two musical madmen. Their last Bedrock release (Machines) in April 2012 was a Beatport Top 5 smash and now Emotions/Let The Show Begin raises the bar even higher.
From the twisted vocalized intro to the deep, deep bass and subtle synth hooks and drops, Emotions is, quite simply, a soulful electronic masterpiece. Whilst Let The Show Begin, with its quirky nod to Mr. Mojo Risin, displays a more direct and intense percussive edge to the powerhouse Pig & Dan arsenal.
Once again, its hats off to Bedrock for raising the bar even higher with each release. In this day and age to not only survive as an independent label, but also to flourish and constantly evolve by introducing new talent and pushing established artists to their creative best, is something that should be applauded.
