In the wake of the destruction caused by Proxy’s mammoth double-album debut, ‘MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES,’ the Russian demiurge returns to scour the ruins for survivors with a cluster of B-side bunker-bangers. These tracks will be hauntingly familiar to the ruined cortexes of anyone who’s ever lived through Proxy’s live show, granting fans their longtime wish of owning and coming to terms with the source of their neural trauma in digital form.
“What strikes small men as excess to me seems necessary. To crush them was not enough. I saw I needed to extinguish all hope,” says Proxy, as he continues his onslaught of live dates around the world. “My challengers had already fallen. Now they have been erased.”
You can also grab Proxy’s previous release, ‘Music From The Eastblock Jungles, Part 2′ on Dim Mak now.
Hot Mouth is back and with an awesome remix of Angger Dimas’s and Oliver Twizt’s big tune XXX. This production has a unique feel while absolutely destroying the dance floor with it’s big room, dirty electro sound. We highly recommend picking up this track when it releases on Dim Mak Records on February 26th.
As we get ready to release Proxy’s second part of “Music from the Eastblock Jungles” next week you can now stream the second LP exclusively over at Mixmag. The second part of his ‘Music From The Eastblock Jungles’ album is out this Tuesday on Dim Mak.
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 II 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”.
They say “It follows on from the first part, which was released in November of last year, and is a sterling showcase of the Russian producer’s slamming take on electro. You have been warned. This one’s a ripper. And to celebrate its release, Mixmag has the exclusive first play.”
PRE-ORDER: You can pre-order “Music From The Eastblock Jungles Pt II” now here.
