At the outset of the month that always brings the sun and seductive floor play of Miami WMC, the French phenomenon now globally known as Jidax returns to Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak imprint with latest single “Phenomena”. Having debuted on the imprint with “Resistencia” back in 2012 and since provided blistering remix duties for Aoki’s “Come With Me” single alongside Polina, the duos return to Dim Mak is as poignant as we have come to expect from the Parisian peak timers.
“Phenomena” celebrates the duos proud musical heritage while pinpointing the ardent energy that their signature blend of modern club fuel has come to hallmark over the years. In a stern wave of intense synth work and elegant melodic progressions, the duos uplifting yet versatile production ascends into a high-octane spree of big room beats and old school sample work, balancing the dance floor deviance unapologetically festival proof tendencies that have come to hold the relative newcomers in such high esteem to date. Add diverse B With a spree of spots already locked down at this years Miami WMC and further productions ready and raring to make their way onto the club floor, the new age French phenomenon hit all the right notes for Aoki’s renowned musical stronghold with this coming of age floor filler.

“Eternity EP is a conscious musical progression for me. The sound is much more refined than the previous Candy Floss Art Capitalist EP from 2011, but still gritty. I’m reaching back and infusing the sounds that got me excited about music in the first place, like punk, hardcore, and rock. Above all, it’s a small peek into what’s in store for 2013.” – Dan Sena
