Growing up on the bustling streets of NYC, David Berrie felt the dancefloor calling his name during his early days of sneaking into parties as an underage raver. It was only a matter of time before he decided to hop over to the other side of the DJ booth to hone his skills as a versatile selector who’s spun it all from hip-hop to house, eventually landing gigs at key locations like Output NY and DC-10. Beyond that, he’s building a similarly solid profile as a producer, which is captured in his new Revolution EP on Seth Troxler’s Play It, Say It label.
Today, we’re featuring the title cut from Berrie’s stellar EP as our Track of the Day. “Revolution” is the opener for what proves to be a hypnotic house journey across the EP’s three tracks, laid out with the same kind of lo-fi charm that sucks you into an all-night marathon set. In its nearly seven-minute run, the track barrels through shuffling drums, rubbery basslines, scattershot bleeps, a firm vocal sample calling out the track’s title, and a sprinkle of flanged synths that will mess with your head.
“I was looking to create a bit of a mind-bender with this one,” Berrie told Insomniac of his new release. “I was messing around with my Cirklon sequencer to create that trippy bassline, along with a little Daft Punk salute, and ‘Revolution’ was born.”
