Darq E Freaker has signed his next EP to long running UK imprint, Big Dada.
Titled ‘ADHD’, the five track record follows on from the release of his #DontFreakOut mixtape and promises to deliver more of his trademark blend of cutting edge hip-hop, alternative grime and rave.
“The timeliness of this music isn’t so important, the main thing is that it’s RAVE music” the effervescent Londoner explains. “I’m trying to fuse RAVE… with grime/hip-hop groovers, drops, drum patterns & basslines. I’ve always been listening to music, but this is actually stuff that I watched on ‘Top Of The Pops.’ What I grew up to. It was just a thing of me thinking how I’d ever make it into this sound, as I was quite young and didn’t fathom making tunes. So this project is in reference to that but is also an extension of fusing different types of music together. Fusing genres into something technicolorful is something I’ve always been passionate about and pursued, both in this project and beyond. This project isn’t solely me, its me pushing some of the musical influence of my adolescence into my adulthood. It’s nostalgic in the most progressive way.”
Set to arrive April 1st, you can stream lead track ‘2C-I’ below.
