Toronto’s Hunter Siegel is the self-described practitioner of #DARKPLUR, and to take a line from Dave Chapelle (context totally notwithstanding), “darkness is spreading.”
Following a collection of free singles, the former member of The Killabits makes his debut on Steve Angello’s SIZE with the two-track New School Renegade/Time To Blackout EP.
The aptly named New School Renegade is a mix of classic house vibes and future house grooves as an upbeat piano and the famous amen break combine with heavy synths and a decidedly ravey atmosphere. The B-side, Time To Blackout, has Siegel join forces with house pioneer Todd Terry for a darker, more aggressive journey that crosses over into tech house territory.
