‘Baby Sing A Song EP’ is Rogue D’s first solo release on DFTD, following recent collaborations with Memoryman (aka Uovo) and remixes for Eli Escobar on Classic Music Company.
Formerly one half of hit-making duo and Defected favourite Flashmob, Danny Minchella is now Rogue D, the realisation of his influences from the electronic scene, from house to techno and from old school garage to deep house.
Plenty of these inspirations are evident in this EP, making for an intelligent and well-structured release that demonstrates Rogue’s live mixing technique.
‘Baby Sing A Song’ delivers pure pumping vivacity by means of a “say it like you mean it, girl” spoken sample, complete with baying crowd, and no-nonsense 4/4 beat.
‘Faith’, another live mix, develops the first track’s bassline into a deeper beat that rolls effortlessly, while ‘Surrender’ returns to the upfront house vibe that really makes this EP kick.
Rogue D has truly reached his stride with this one; ‘Baby Sing A Song EP’ is what DFTD is all about.
