Daxson – ‘Culture Shock’
From his ‘Skygarden’ debut to this March’s ‘Bexley Square’, Daxson has been making a loud and clear case for tenacious trance for several years now. The alias/brainchild and now primary studio outlet for Manchester-based producer Dan Dobson, his work on Coldharbour has delivered an impossible-to-miss broadside to tougher clubfloors.
Daxson’s music has caught the ear of an impressive raft of A-listers, not least that of Markus Schulz. Schulz gave ‘Culture Shock’ its first airing at Ultra Miami in March, mashing it to wildfire effect with MK’s ‘17’. It’ll come as a surprise to no one to learn that ‘Culture Shock’s circuitry is a lively one. Frontend, the drums throw down, its bass prowls and Dan lets the mod wheel fly. Drop-side, through melodic glimmers and cinematic pads, he allows just the slightest shafts of melodic light to penetrate its production. Masterfully he stretches the break’s tension piano-wire-taut, building it up with snares, before finally hitting pressure-release through its sky-kissing mainline.
