David Durango - Velvet Forest EP
Digital exclusive release
31 year old Durango, real name David Duran, first became hooked on the sound of Acid House at the tender age of thirteen. At fifteen he purchased his first set of turntables, and as the 90's progressed he absorbed the full variety of electronic music, House, Electro, Trance and Techno.
Early releases came on Bambu Records and Acid Milk Recordings, and Freedom Soundz, but it was his remix of James What & Dan Berkson's 'Keep On' on Dessous that really shot David into limelight. The success of his mix lead to him contributing 'Move With Me' alongside Patrick Chardonnet's stunning 'Days Like These' on the Pokerflat 'Tournament' release and since that time he has gone on to remix and release on labels including VIVa MUSiC, NRK, Resopal and Caballero.
His recent remix of Cosmic Cowboys 'Velvet' on Kina has been heavily supported, as has his remix of Vincent Casanova's 'Timeloop' which featured on the 'We Live On Ships' EP, our most recent release. Today David steps up to the plate himself, and proves once again, that when it comes to creating melodic masterpieces, he is one of the very best, with two first class originals in 'Sleeping In The Way' and 'Velvet Forest'.
Lending her skills on the remixes is Vekton Musik and Vee Recordings boss, Mandy Jordan, who turns in two equally as rich and velvety outings in the form of her Remix and Chicago Dub.
Another beautiful release from Switzerland's Mina Records, and a tribute to the hard work of label head Claudia Ayala.
Release date: April 2010
