Doubling up on the Dutch pride with considerable force, Amsterdam’s Jordy van Egmond, better known as Dyro, and Rotterdam’s Jacob Van Hage unite for a sizeable offering for Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s Smash The House imprint. While chugging Electro riffs may have been on the widespread agenda for a while now, the considerable attitude of their valiant low-end canvas of screeching leads and robotically refined melodics is reassuringly unfamiliar and provisionally impressive. Invariably playing out in the same vein as a grouchy Daft Punk might have, their finely-tuned collaboration marks a promising extension of their nation’s prominent yet often predictable hold upon European Dance Music.
‘EMP’ will be released on March 26th via Smash The House.
