The Wurly Chronicles EP

Dan Only

Dirt Crew Recordings
DIRT110 | 2018-03-19  
We got to know Dan Only, an exciting emerging artist from the Toronto underground, when he collaborated with Jesse Futerman on our recent "Deep Love 2017" compilation. His debut record, released on Adam Marshall's "New Kanada"
imprint, introduced his deep instinct for electronic music and unique, boundless approach to deep house. An avid
collector of old school gear you can hear the analogue warmth throughout this intricately detailed yet heavy hitting
four-tracker.

"It's Clear" opens. A solid House jam, its thumping drums and resonating melodies follow a steady bass groove ready
to heat up the dance floor. "Be Major...Believe" leads in more gently before warbling key lines and synth details layer
over gritty percussion pushing the mood closer and closer to bursting. This one conjures images of summer nights and
distant coast lines.

On the B, simmering vocals and tropical rhythms dance amongst straight forward house energies on "Don't You
Understand". Rich with subtleties, it's somehow smooth while seriously impactful. Finally we have "Truffles". A very
modern twist on Disco vs House it's an original Italo infused gem with an edit feel, that maintains the vibe of an 80s
era hedonistic night throughout. Perfect as a peak time mood elevator or blissful, hands-in-the-air closing record.

We're convinced Dan Only's future is bright and are overwhelmed by the quality and musicality of this, his first solo
EP on Dirt Crew Recordings.
