Charles D debuts on Factory 93 with ‘Heavy / So High’
New York’s Charles D makes his label debut on Factory 93 Records with ‘Heavy / So High,’ both of which have been standouts in his sets over the last year.
The unmistakable style of Charles D combines hard-hitting techno grooves with progressive sounds and influences. Eric Prydz, Layton Giordani, Cristoph, and many others have backed him because of his consistent output of music. The American producer explores the dark and heavy side of melodic techno on his debut EP for Factory 93, which consists of two tracks that are uniquely suited for massive rooms.
With its thunderous groove punctuated by sweeping synthesizer swells and dramatic crescendos before diving into a lengthy breakdown, “Heavy” lives up to its name. “So High” is more melodic, with ghostly vocals and arpeggios adding to the track’s ethereal and expansive feel. The track has already seen support from Adam Beyer at Creamfields, and the response was positively electric.
I’m super pumped to have these tracks come out. They have been a big part of my live sets over the past year. – Charles D.
The New Yorker’s tour schedule has taken him to some of the country’s most prestigious clubs and festivals, as well as serving as direct support for Eric Prydz during his recent North American tour. After securing numerous releases on the tastemaker’s mighty record label, including his chart-topping single “You,” which has been on heavy rotation for countless like-minded artists since its release a couple of years ago, it was a natural progression. Charles D is now building on that momentum with another set of solid techno weapons that have already begun to follow in its footsteps.
Factory 93 Records’ new release, ‘Heavy / So High,’ is available everywhere.
