Following Dan Curtin’s superb remix of D-Knox ‘Out There’ in the summer of 2015, EPMMusic welcomes the return of this Metamorphic Recordings legend for his own full-length EP.

Dan Curtin’s musical quest began amidst the inception of the techno and house phenomenon of the early 1990s.  From his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, Dan experimented with a vast number of styles, producing innovative sounds of every variety, from Chicago to Detroit to the East Coast.  Dan’s impressive discography dates back to 1992 when his first releases on Detroit’s 33RPM Records and Belgium’s Buzz motivated him to launch his own Metamorphic Recordings.  A continuous stream of releases also followed on big players like Peacefrog, Strictly Rhythm, Sublime and Soma.  In 2003 Dan decided to focus on a funkier production sound, while his creative instincts provoked him to make a change to the more fast-paced music scene of Berlin.  This move soon triggered a string of new releases on labels such as Bass Culture, Holic Trax and Saved.  Over 70 singles and 9 albums later, Dan is just as innovative as ever whether recording under his own name or one of his many aliases such as Purveyors of Fine Funk.  Dan’s prolific output shows no sign of abating and he recently announced the re-launch of Metamorphic, maintaining its vinyl focus while also making many of its releases available digitally for the first time.

The ‘Galaxies Merging EP’ opens with the title track and as it would suggest we get Curtin in sci-fi techno mode, with trampling beats and dappled synth work.  ‘Mind Sweep’ continues the techno theme, but this time it’s high-tech funk with a deeper and soulful undercurrent, while the unpredictable, late-night workout ‘To Modify’ closes the EP with a bold wash of erratic electronics.  As a whole, the EP offers a snapshot of the diverse elements of Curtin’s estimable production skills.
