Weirdo Recordings boss Jason Herd launches his brand new ‘Weirdo Cuts Volume 1’ EP series, featuring 2 hefty collaborations to kick off the label’s Spring season. ‘On My Mind’ sees Jason team up with pianist Davos (from Deep Sea Cosmonauts), creating a slamming piano house romp, ripe with distorted drums, Rhodes and organ stabs, classic bass, a monstrous piano breakdown and lush vocals from the legendary Lisa Millet. On ‘Running’, Jason joins forces with Sax man and talented DJ’/ producer Tom Da Lips to create a saxy peak time floor filler where Tom’s freestyle performance cuts through a potent groove made uplifting old school filtered pianos, a driving bassline, choppy organ stabs and hypnotic vocals.
‘Weirdo Cuts Volume 1’ will be released on Traxsource promo May 3rd / Full release May 17th 2019 on Weirdo Recordings.

The viral catapulted Davos into the limelight and brought him to the attention of some of the biggest names in dance music as well as two generations of acid house ravers and he hasn’t stopped touring since!
