Following the successes of ‘Mad For An Olive’, it only seemed natural that Dan McKie returned to Static Music with a follow up release. The 1980 Recordings head honcho did just that this past Friday when he unleashed ‘On The Low Down’.
The Ibiza resident chose a more than fitting title for this single and in more ways than one. McKie spends most of his time hovering around a fat low end with distorted frequencies and a looped vocal. The down tempo record effortlessly moves through the hazed atmosphere as the chopped synth pattern stabs through the chunky percussive rhythm with precision accuracy. Dan delivers a sound geared more toward the after hour parties and warehouse events, flashing his versatility as a producer with the release of ‘On The Low Down’ every step of the way.
With a busy summer ahead , McKie’s productions might be his most underrated asset. Listen to ‘On The Low Down’ via Soundcloud below.
