Record Label: Big Dada
Hot on the heels of his #DontFreakOut mixtape, South London producer Darq E Freaker further blazes his trademark trail through classic dance music, contemporary hip-hop and peripheral grime in the new instrumental ADHD EP for Big Dada. Having first burst into international underground consciousness with Danny Brown's ubiquitous "Blueberry (Pills & Cocaine)," the borderless, hybridized music he's known for sounds no less fresh; other production credits (Tempa T, London Grammar, D Double E) and single releases (for Numbers. among others) are testament to a genre collagist at his technical prime.
Speaking on the release, Darq says: "The timeliness of this music isn't so important, the main thing is that it's RAVE music. I'm trying to fuse RAVE... with grime/hiphop groovers, drops, drum patterns & basslines. I've always been listening to music, but this is actually stuff that I watched on ‘Top Of The Pops.' Fusing genres into something technicolorful is something I've always been passionate about and pursued, both in this project and beyond. This project isn't solely me, its me pushing some of the musical influence of my adolescence into my adulthood. It's nostalgic in the most progressive way."
