Darkroom Dubs returns with a little late-night disco dissonance. It’s time for some ‘Unstable Harmony’.
Following a brief hiatus – during which the label has been preparing for its forthcoming 20th anniversary – Silicone Soul’s longstanding imprint strides into 2022, fashionably late with this powerful label debut from Günce Aci.
An unstoppable tour-de-force from Istanbul in recent years, Günce has been weaving between the genres, joining hypnotic dots in the darkest shadows of house, disco, indie and electronica on labels such as Nein, Ombra International and Spectrowave. Now she lands Darkroom Dubs with two blisteringly fresh originals that defy categorisation.
‘Unstable Harmony’ sets the pace and tone. A bulbous bassline pushes the message with urgency in a way not dissimilar to Black Strobe. Laced with dark disco nuances and an unfaltering groove strong enough to melt concrete, don’t be fooled by the title: this guarantees the sweetest of dancefloor harmonies.
‘No Longer Human’ increases the feeling of unease and tension with a lingering groove that lurks and raises in weight and momentum but never peaks. The perfect transition track or palette cleanser, Günce’s broken beats, insistent bassline and spiralling musical elements can disarm a crowd at 20 paces. And will do for a long time to come.
Stay tuned as Darkroom Dubs have plenty more to drop throughout 2022 from old friends and new. Expect beats from new signings Alvaro Cabana & Fargo Devanti and Abel Ray, plus the return of Undo, Amount and Am$trad Billionaire. It’s going to be a long, long, hot summer, even in the darkest of rooms. See you soon!
