Disgraceland - Been Lean EP [DS004] - Sampler by DiablumaSound published on 2012/11/21 03:25:17 +0000 DIABLUMA SOUND 004 DISGRACELAND – “BEEN LEAN EP” RELEASE DATE: NOVEMBER 27TH, 2012 UK PRODUCER DISGRACELAND DELIVERS A TECHNO INFLUENCED EP OF MOOMBAHTON Moombahton has always been a genre based on influences whether they be dutch house, dubstep, or dancehall. Very few have tried to take it into the deeper realms that the genre can possess … until recently. This is where Disgraceland comes in. Known to his family as John Stanhope, the producer is no newbie to dance music. Having been born in the UK, a country rich with clubbing culture, Stanhope found an early love and career in drum and bass before embracing house and techno. When moombahton caught his attention he was immediately excited and began working on combining his multiple influences into the genres's BPM range. The EP title track "Been Lean" opens the release with beautiful synth stabs that warp and morph around you as it's energy gradually picks up; a perfect way to start a set. "All My Zero's Are Greater Than Your One" is an amazing slice of dub techno while "Bet You Don't" explores darker territories… like the dancefloor of Berghain. The EP closer "Standard Reflex" let's you down gently with soft stabs and keyboard riffs but a great bassline to keep your feet moving if you aren't ready to leave the dancefloor.
