Hailing from Montreal, QC, Charlie Darker is poised to take over. Yes, he’s received accolades from some of the top producers in the industry, including Tiësto, Hardwell, Zedd, Porter Robinson, and Madeon. Yes, at only 20 years old, he’s already released tracks on some very notable labels including Mad Decent, Dim Mak and Ministry of Sound. And yes, he was handpicked by veteran dancefloor slayer, Wolfgang Gartner, to put out the acclaimed “Atlantic / Pacific” EP on his newly re-launched Kindergarten Recordings. Those achievements certainly speak for themselves, but Charlie’s affiliation with some of the top players in the industry doesn’t even begin to sum up his ambition.
In a time where dance culture is beginning to feel homogenized and a bit too safe, Charlie Darker is creating a new breed, striving to bring unpredictability and an element of danger into the scene. With production stylings that emphasize gritty bass rhythms yet still manage to encompass memorable melodies, Charlie’s consistent output is proof that he’s ready to lead the charge. 2013 is turning out to be the year where the masses not only recognize the Charlie Darker brand, but strongly identify with it.
