Betomeng presents Dardenne – C12 – Futurepast (BE)
“My favorite music is the music I haven’t yet heard.” — John Cage
Resident for the Brussels based crew Deep in House and their little baby C12.
Damien Dardenne is Session 4000 techno side.
Record collector, he decides to create a new alias for his vision of techno.
Energy and risk are the keywords of his sets, challenging the crowd with unexpected oldschool skills,
sometimes forgotten by the new generation of dj’s.
When he’s not behind the decks, Dardenne is busy producing music with his specific approach:
a blend of old and new school influences, mixing trance vibe and dry techno.
The fourth release on Davy‘s Futurepast label comes from Dardenne, a newcomer with no previous releases.
The Flow EP is inspired by a passage through the buzzy closing hours of Belgian nightlife.
Elegantly simple hooks and driving basslines result in “the brighter side of dark,” the label explains.
“Everything to keep you rooted to the dancefloor while your mind floats through the atmosphere.
A dip in the pools of timelessness.”
Previous releases on Futurepast come from M GUN, David Morley, and Davy himself.
