Danny L Harle has always operated within a different musical dimension. With his debut album, this bonkers sonic explorer blasts off into a whole new stratosphere helped out by a few ‘friends’.
You see, “Harlcore” isn’t just Danny. No, it’s also more than just an album. It’s a truly immersive experience helmed by the four resident DJ’s at the producers imaginary club that acts as the location for the album. DJ Danny, MC Boing, DJ Mayhem and DJ Ocean all combine their talents to supreme effect on a record that is exhilarating, dizzyingly inventive and offers a vivid snapshot of a dreamlike world to escape into.
Blissful ambient loveliness like DJ Ocean’s ‘For So Long’ sits alongside euphoric eruptions like the turbo charged and insanely catchy bangers of DJ Danny’s ‘Take My Heart Away’ and DJ Mayhem’s ‘Shining Stars’. The album also features some of Danny’s regular collaborators like Caroline Polachek and Hudson Mohawke among a cast of like minded thrill seekers.
Everyone is welcome in Danny L Harle’s electronic funhouse. ‘Harlecore’ is a truly thrilling creation.
