Egyptian artist Ahmed Raxon signs his latest Solomun-approved gem, Nebular, to Diynamic Music and it arrives today!
Egyptian dance music powerhouse Ahmed ElRaghy aka Raxon is no stranger to big label releases. The name Raxon first emerged on the global scene after winning a Beatport remix competition in 2012, garnering further attention from the DJ connoisseurs by winning Best Dubai DJ twice in 2013 and 2014.
Having relocated to Barcelona since, he’s had releases on various notable imprints. Tracks on Noir, Sincopat, Ellum, and Tronic slowly solidified his name among the industry’s big boys, notably his release through NM2 records, which saw him deliver Vega, one of his most memorable tracks to date.In addition to production, he’s been playing some of the biggest parties in Europe, namely Maceo Plex’s Mosaic residency at Pacha Ibiza this summer. This month will witness Raxon’s return to the Beatport charts with a new release, an impeccable techno tool by the name of Nebular. This sure-fire production will come through Solomun Diynamic Music label as part of a four-track EP, marking the ninth edition of the Four To The Floor series.
Nebular was already on rotation in Solomun’s track selection before the EP came together. And seeing how it fits with the dark, eclectic, and unhurried style of sets - it’s safe to say he was very pleased with how the crowds reacted to it and decided to release it. The 123 BPM piece features heavy kicks, subtle deep notes with a slightly delayed, and echoey melody. It features long breaks that progress into subtle bass drops which further propel the track. The Four To The Floor 09 EP features tracks from fellow label artists including Thalydomid, Lopezhouse and Dee Montero who all deliver tracks with similar vibes which contribute to the release’s dark undertones. The EP is up for grabs on Beatport starting today, but that’s not all.
Raxon put together a 10-track chart to celebrate the occasion with his fans, featuring fresh and summer-ready cuts from KiNK, Isolee, Laurent Garnier, H.O.S.H, and Raxon himself and many more. So feel free to get your hands on all of that music he’s been so graceful to provide us with as you warm up for the weekend.
