Today’s track of the day comes to us from Italian-born, Los Angeles-based producer/DJ Durante. Durante’s keen ear as a selector and unrelenting standard for quality in his productions has made him a staple of LA’s thriving house music scene. Today Durante joins forces with another iconic LA-based artist, dropping his new EP “Orca” on T.E.E.D.’s Nice Age label imprint.
The title track “Orca” takes listeners on an ethereal journey through Balearic grooves and vibrant tropical energy all set to the tone of Durante’s signature brand of house. Undulating through moods that are euphoric at times while also pushing into more brooding territory, “Orca” makes for a versatile record that could be at home in a wide range of settings and dance floors across the world. As always, Durante’s production is forward thinking with intense attention to detail and quality. From the cover art done by Brazilian artist Totonho to the stellar two-track offering, Durante delivers a brilliant work of art for his Nice Age debut.

If you’re in LA this weekend be sure to catch Durante alongside T.E.E.D. and others at the 1st annual Nice Age Pool Party. You can find tickets here.
