COLLECTIVE MINDS & DARKER THAN WAX PRESENTS: THE REFLEX
Fascinated by the remix from an early age, London-based French native Nicolas Laugier, aka The Reflex, takes his cue from the first wave of disco remixers by using only the original sounds from the master tapes (or stems) to breathe new life into soul, pop and disco classics. Imaginative arrangements, boxfresh sonics and intricate editing make The Reflex Revisions rocket fuel for every DJ set.
One-half of the Cosa nostra duo and co-founder of the prolific net label Darker Than Wax, the Funk Bast*rd has been tirelessly pushing and promoting an alternative expression of leftfield music through his widely eclectic, genre-bending sets. It is no surprise when one hears his musical selection which traverses between a huge variety of musical genres, be it deep jazz, soul, funk, boogie, brazilian grooves, house, hip hop, bass and the most forward sounding beats.
As with most love affairs, Daryl C’s liaison with electronic music was honed and fostered in the bedroom, where he first began his knob-fiddling pursuit some eight years ago. Levelling up through years of homemade mixtapes and midnight musical musings, Daryl C has now become a regular fixture in Singapore’s club circuit with an ever-evolving selection stockpile to keep feet moving.
