Sound Du Jour is a rising and shining label expertly managed by creative UK-based producer Carlo Bragagnini aka La Mano (SXDNS270). Founded in 2021, the outlet has been adding some interesting content to its blue-ribbon roster and becoming a fine source for Indie Dance/Dark Disco gems. The next brick in its wall was made with love in Stockholm and soaked in cosmic aura by none other than Marcus Christiansen.
With solid recent appearances on vital imprints such as Mélopée, Maleante, Weirdos, Astrolead, and his very own Club Mackan, the skilled Swedish producer is undoubtedly one of the hottest acts of the moment and has been failing to disappoint when it comes to delivering high-quality fat and dark dance-floor-oriented beasts. For his debut on Sound Du Jour, Marcus cooked two of his specialities and invited Venice Arms and Neil Diablo for the remix duties. Neil couldn’t resist and decided to jump in with two versions of “Aurora”.
If the powerful original delivers its zero-gravity experience in 122 BPM, Neil’s Remix (and Bonus Beat) comes with a 126 frolic gait, and it is a feisty one with its groovy hi-hats and upbeat percussive elements. The space vibes are still there, of course, but now with more swing and hip-shaking attitude. Kudos!
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the label.
