“The Wait Is Over. The World Is Over.”

After years of anticipation, Proxy at last presents his debut LP, MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES, PT. 1. Beloved by top DJs and stadium crowds the world over, the undisputed master of the “Turn It Up to 11″ movement has created an album that harnesses the pure spirit of legit rave culture, with 11 tracks that span and elevate countless genres – notably inflected by classic bass and DnB – without regard for trends or ephemeral influences. The album is the product of an artist who forged a sound in complete isolation, with visa problems leading him to entrench himself in the middle of nowhere in his native Russia, continuing in the UK rave tradition of his Essex-spawned idols, The Prodigy.

November 5, 2012 Tim Gauthier Music Tags: , ,

URB Magazine recently featured Proxy’s November 6th release, Music From the Eastblock Jungles Pt.1 in their latest, Album in Focus feature. URB describes the album as a “rare body of work that invokes the classic rhetoric and arrangements of D&B/Jungle, while maintaining one fit in the door of the current grit and grime that has encompassed the darker state of EDM in the current market.” With days away from the release, Proxy’s album is now available for pre-order on iTunes.

Read the full write up over at URB Magazine.

Annie Mac & BBC Radio 1 Present “New Music Monday’s feat. Proxy – Junk”

October 29, 2012 Tim Gauthier Music Tags: , , , ,

The new single from Proxy’s debut LP, MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES PT. 1, “Junk” is a maelstrom of old-skool breaks and wailing synth-sirens, featuring a brilliant cut-up vocal sample commanding your synapses to give up and break down. This is the kind of atom-smashing cortex-ruiner that only Proxy can deliver, offering a taste of the years-in-the-making arms buildup contained on his album.

The lovely Annie Mac had taken hold of the upcoming single, and hosted an exclusive download of “Junk” on her “New Music Monday’s” channel, in conjunction with BBC Radio 1! Get the download while is lasts below:

Dim Mak is proud to release the next installment off Proxy’s line of “MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES”, with this single premiere; “Shut Up”.

“Shut Up!” is packed with a brutal hip-hop vocal decrying mainstream pop laid out over the bluntest of beats, armed with weapons-grade bass and PROXY’s trademark, dread-inspiring atmospherics. The track will be accompanied with remixes from Dim Mak label mates GTRONIC and VCO. Belgian titan GTRONIC lends his heavy bass trash sound for a grinding rendition of “Shut Up!” crammed with low-end intensity. Los Angeles-based duo VCO rework “Shut Up!” into a techno-house frenzy. Closing out the release, rising Canadian star John Roman uncovers the pitch-black soul of “Shut Up!” and lets it unfold over six minutes of malevolent techno, while Belgian house duo Sound of Stereo unleash an equally dark and fully loaded house remake.

“An aggressively belligerent and totally dope single off the new album, dripping with raw, spirited hip-hop swagger” – VIBE
