Cr2 Records have been on something of an unstoppable run since it’s inception in 2004. established in July 2004 by Mark Brown (one half of the formally known as ‘M.Y.N.C. Project’), many of dance music’s biggest names have featured on the imprint over the years, including Fedde Le Grand, Steve Angello, Nic Fanciulli, DJ Sneak, Thomas Gold, Deadmau5, Carl Cox, John Dahlback, Yousef, Nicky Romero and many more.
During that time it’s sub-label, Cr2 Trax has been steadily rising to prominance since it’s launch in 2015. Focusing very much on the names of tomorrow, artists including Second City, Low Steppa and Copy Paste Soul have enjoyed significant success with recent releases, and next in line to repeat the feat comes from Californian producer Dateless, who kicks things off with the label’s first release of 2017.
Since his rise to prominence last year, Dateless has been carefully carving a space for himself in the minds of dance music fans and DJs both in the U.K and The States. With releases on an already envious array of labels thus far, his journey to Cr2 has been a steady yet constant upwards trajectory.
On his new three track EP Universal, Dateless explores the underlying principles of the bristling tech house sound with three textural, dancefloor-driven club tunes. The likes of Claude Vonstroke, Paul Oakenfold, Riva Starr and Marcus Nasty have all voiced their support, dropping him in their DJ sets all over the world. 2017 looks set to be an exciting year for Dateless, with Universal providing the perfect way to kick things off.
Having already kicked off January with a set at Holy Ship! alongside the Dirtybird crew, to mark the producers EP’s release today (27th January), we’re thrilled to premiere ‘This Is The Underground’, a peak-time offering with a deep bass line that possesses the perfect groove to keep you moving through the cold snap.
