Proxy the Russian DJ/Producer who to many of us out there is one of the original guys on the scene to bring some real dark and rough electro that had people and crowds mesmerized by his new sound. Even though he was among a slew of great electro producers /dj’s at the time like The Bloody Beetroots, Mr. Ozio, Crookers, Blatta & Inesha just to name a few he made a name for himself by creating a truly unique sound.
Just yesterday via Dim Mak Records Proxy’s “Music From The Eastblock Jungles Part 1” was released which is going to be part of a two part installment of releases Part 2 will be coming early February 2013. One of Proxy’s most famous track’s “Raven” is part of Part 1 a track that all Proxy fans will cherish. Another track that’s on there is “Shut Up!” which he released an EP for last month that got lots of play due to its many amazing remixes and support from artists like Steve Aoki Mr. Ozio. I must say though that the highlight of this whole release is “Dance in Dark” I would have never thought I’d see him re-release this track which was originally out on Turbo Recordings.. All I can say about this track is that when he dropped it in his 2010 set at Hard Summer the whole crowd went mental at the drop aka best moment of the day!
For those of you in Chicago tomorrow night Proxy is in town and will be playing at Spybar. RSVP Below!
