Meanwhile, 8 years ago...Dance Area ft. Austin Boston - AA/247 Posted on 02 Feb 15:20
Another mysterious single featuring two teenage producers named Dirk Boogie and Malono Von Bass from Utrecht, Holland, and Londoner Austin Boston. Legend has it that Dirk recorded Austin (who previously worked at The End nightclub (RIP)) rapping at the nightclub whilst on a trip to London in 2007, and upon returning home, wrote the music with his production partner Molono to accompany Austin's maverick chant. A copy was sent over to Erol Alkan at Phantasy towers who promptly signed it up, and within days it was within the playlists of 2manydjs, Boys Noize, A-Trak amongst many others.
Sadly, Dance Area never followed this single up. The video was the first to be made by James Connolly, who many of you will know and love as L-Vis 1990. Also features possibly Diplo's greatest ever remix!
