Parisian-based tech-house duo Darabi aka Philippe and Dang Khoa's love of 'gangster basslines and disco irreverence' led to their inception catching the attention of the highly rated underground label Get the Curse's team. Their new EP Truckin' released by one half of Clouded Vision, Matt Walsh on the new eponymous label, features deep sounds and clean productions alongside remixes from Bozzwell and the Vision themselves, set for late nights in the city. Sharing fans with DJs like Ewan Pearson, Chloé, Michael Mayer, Joakim, Ivan Smagghe, the duo are already forming an intergral part of the new French underground.
