Darius Syrossian – Dance Of The Shaman
“I’m tired of hearing tracks that are obviously made to make the Beatport Top 10 charts! That market doesn’t interest me at all. Instead, I’m looking to release music that will still be around in 10 years time. Music aimed primarily at the dancefloor. Music with soul and depth and meaning. This is the reason I am launching Moxy Muzik.” These are the the words Darius Syrossian used to answer a recent question in an interview on why he is launching his new label.
And here we are, the first release on the new Moxy Muzik VINYL & DIGITAL label, an essential EP featuring one of his own originals and excellent remixes by Man Power, East End Dubz, Doc Martin and Shaf Huse. Each EP released on the label comes with bespoke, hand-drawn artwork by Charlotte Archer.
The opening track on this first EP on Moxy Muzik is Dance of the Shaman, a turbo charged house cut with warm, rubbery bass made from the unorthodox method of using an Organ underlining slick and driving drums. The infectious groove is full of late night soul and chord stabs bringing plenty of human emotions.
Me Me Me label boss Man Power remixes it into an uplifting track with happy piano chords dancing over the drums. It’s a timeless effort that will get hands in the air and bring real joy to the floor. The legendary Doc Martin then strips things back and layers in some steamy female vocals to his remix and East End Dubz (Vinyl only) does his perfectly floor facing thing with dubbed out drums and slick hi hats keeping you dancing for days. Shaf Huse delivers his trademark peak time House sound that has been heavily supported from the likes of Martinez Brothers.

Future releases on Moxy Muzik will come from the likes of Phil Weeks, Tommy Vicari Jnr, Ray Mono, Christian Burkhardt, Ben Rau, Dense & Pika and of course Darius himself. So they will cover plenty of sounds crossing over both house & techno genre’s but avoiding the generic obvious sounds that Darius feels is around too much at the moment.
Darius is coming off another huge Ibiza summer with headline gigs for Do Not Sleep at Amnesia, as well as many other clubs and festivals around the world. He has released on the likes of Moon Harbour, 8Bit and Hot Creations all featuring his trademark sound. His new label will continue in Darius’s rich tradition of serving up quality house music sound with the energy of techno & with a real sense of soul.
