D.Dan launches his own label, SUMMERPUP as a home for his unique blend of deep, groovy, rolling sounds steeped in psychedelia.

The label’s playful mantra derives from heritage knowledge from his Korean roots passed down by his mother, based on his time of birth. He delivers a tasty three-track record entitled Summerpup EP.

Speaking on the tracks, D.Dan States: “In my DJ sets, I like to explore states of loop-driven hypnosis. For “X-Dreams”, I wanted to create a track that tunnels and intensifies a state of entrancement to a point where the energy boils and spills over, without losing the thread of tension that is built and woven throughout the journey of a set.

“D.Core” is inspired by an epiphany I had while on the dancefloor. I had an uncanny feeling of deja vu, identical to how I felt in my days playing drums to locked-groove metalcore breakdowns. “Falling Forward Into The Future” is a track I made specifically for the first time I was invited to play Mala Junta as a guest, on the 1st of December 2018.”

‘Summerpup EP’ is releasing December 3rd via Summerpup and is available to pre-order on Bandcamp.
