Today Proxy released his second LP of the Music from the Eastblock Jungles. After the first release the Russian artist is set to take you to his next journey of dark synths and vibes. The release will be followed by a European Tour.
Part 2 forces an unconditional surrender with a mix of acid (“Audio 15″), ambient (“Nanomed”), Eastern-flavored pop (“Coke”) and hip-hop inflected head-nodders (“9000″). The second part has been crowned by Mixmag as “Electro album of the month. 5/5”.
To all our avid Twitter followers, and frequents of the #FF shoutouts, we have adorned a whole new meaning towards this overused Friday chant-off… Presenting #FreeFriday.
PROXY makes his long-awaited return with AUDIO 15, a forward-looking piece of post-apocalyptic acid techno that will shock clubs into submission. To appease the restless masses, the release also includes ABYSS, one of the highlights from PROXY’s stadium-razing live show.
In the Russian port city of Vladivistok, near the country’s borders with China and North Korea, Proxy was born into a world of relative cultural isolation. No scene from which to emerge. No connections on which to draw. A lone Prodigy show amid hundreds of thousands in Red Square inspired him to crush the masses with synthesizers. A demo submitted to Tiga’s MySpace led to an arranged marriage with Turbo Recordings, a shining Western meritocracy.
Proxy was immediately accepted as a peer by the likes of Soulwax, Tiga, Mr. Oizo and Erol Alkan on the strength of astonishing, severe tracks like “Decoy”, “Dance in Dark” and the beyond-massive instant classic “Raven”. He has also been called upon to remix artists including Moby, The Prodigy, Peaches, ZZT, Digitalism, Boys Noize, and Azari & III. Their respect for his talent also bespeaks a certain degree of fear, much in the way prosperous nations will ally themselves with nuclear superpowers because they know it is in their most basic interest to do so.
