Daniel Brooks "Higher"
England's Daniel Brooks is about to release his Dark City EP next week, but before that occasion, the DJ/producer has opted to share one of its three original productions. The bouncy "Higher" tune balances garage-minded rhythms with playfully scattered vocal samples and heavy basslines, but despite its club-oriented nature, there are some distinctly desolate emotions here—particularly during the quieter moments when an eerie synth rings out undisturbed. However, these darker inclinations are quickly forgotten when Brooks slams the tune back into full gear, and a catchy groove takes over the mix. Before the producer's Dark City EP drops on July 22 via Immersed Audio, previews of the record's five tracks can be found after the jump.
