DAVI – Two Suns In The Sky EP (Rebellion)

 

Capturing the essence of the Crosstown Rebels and Robot Heart experience at Burning Man, DAVI’s selection of deep melodic odysseys for Rebellion are awash with the other-worldly magic of the Playa. A-side ‘Rebel Heart’ fuses ancient Eastern melodies with moody bass and mystical arrangements.

 

Second track‘Anunnaki’ (a name denoting a group of deities in ancient Mesopotamian cultures) continues the theme of spellbinding, earthy tones and on the remix, Mark Jenkyns toughens up ‘Rebel Heart’ with a squelchy acid-flecked bassline, solid kicks and overlays of his own wonky synth structures. Last but not least the masterstroke ‘Two Suns In The Sky’hypnotises the soul with rolling drum beats and epic chords as waves of spooky energy and polyrhythms punctuate the cosmic sunrise soundscape.

 

In DAVI’s words…

“The Rebel Heart party helped me find myself at Burning Man last year. The music was new and inspirational and I felt it deep inside of me. I was back in my studio within 2 days of returning from the desert, fired up by this new direction and I think I managed to create my own spin on this most magical experience and of course I sent it to Crosstown straight away”.

 

For Armenian born 20-year-old David “DAVI” Khanjian, 2012 was a breakthrough year – with a South American tour, the release of a monster remix of Underworld’s anthem ‘Two Month’s Off’’ and playing a set to 50,000 people at Burning Man festival – a life-changing experience that inspired this EP.

 

After relocating to LA after attending the prestigious Komitas State Music Conservatory in Armenia, DAVI’s production career began to take off and a chance meeting with a personal hero Robert Babicz led to him doing the first ever remix for Robert’s new label Babiczstyle. Later releases came on labels such as Bits & Pieces, Armada, Outside The Box, Treibstoff, Anjunadeep and Hope Recordings.

 

South Shields’ finest Mark Jenkyns first appeared on the first two Hot Waves compilations, and is now a force to be reckoned with on the underground circuit with upcoming releases on the Paradise summer sampler on Hot Creations and Alex Arnout’s Dogmatik imprint.
