On Collusion, Proxy and AC Slater make like the title of their new collaboration and “Have Some Fun.” It’s with this shuffling cut that Proxy’s latest electronic endeavor, Collusion, commences, setting an ebullient tone for the three tracks, “No More,” “Fitness,” and “Poltora,” that will follow.
A prominent presence in contemporary house circles for the past decade, Proxy asserts that his acute ear for rhythmically driven records has only grown sharper over his near year-long hiatus from the scene. With Collusion, Proxy prepares to once more penetrate the dance circuit with the potent technics of his underground aesthetic.
Wonky samples, a galvanizing vocal, hard driving bass lines, and bumping beats collectively constitute the dance-worthy craftwork of “Have Some Fun,” and, as listeners will note upon Collusion’s full-length arrival, these stylistic tools are key to Proxy’s assembly of Collusion. The EP will release Night Bass Records on December 6, but listeners can get a preview of Collusion’s effervescent sound in the form of “Have Some Fun” one day early, exclusively on Dancing Astronaut.
