Last month, electronic pop pioneer Danny L Harle lifted the curtain on his most ambitious creation yet, Harlecore. A completely immersive audiovisual experience, Club Harlecore is a 24/7 virtual party where the rave never ends. Opening with the break-filled ascension of DJ Danny’s “On A Mountain” and the frenetic rap of MC Boing’s “Boing Beat” in January, today Danny L Harle introduces DJ Mayhem and DJ Ocean with two new soundtracks to the Harlecore universe, “Interlocked” and “Ocean’s Theme”.

Polar opposites both sonically and energetically, “Interlocked” and “Ocean’s Theme” fully embody the atmospherics of their fantastical creators. DJ Mayhem’s “Interlocked” is a diamond edged cut of hi-octane gabber, punctuated by a rousing hook before being thrust into a pulverising vortex of buzzsaw synths, pounding percussion and euphoric melodics. It’s simple, brutal but no less devastating on a dancefloor. The track’s music video from Team Rolfes (who also directed the recent DJ Danny – “On A Mountain” video) follows DJ Mayhem on a trail of destruction; finding him in a pit of smashed up equipment in his dungeon before he lays waste to his surroundings, leading him to scale Club Harlecore in a King Kong-esque rage.
Conversely, DJ Ocean’s “Ocean’s Theme” acts as the perfect salve for ‘Interlocked’ and its confrontational dynamism. A sonically stunning soundscape, the track delves deep into Ocean’s Floor, providing a beautifully textured tapestry for DJ Ocean to weave her otherworldly melodies. A prime example of the restorative power of ambience, the track engulfs the listener, replenishing spent energy from the rest of Club Harlecore’s bold rhythms and exuberant synths; providing a tonic of vitality for the mind, body and spirit.
Harlecore will be released February 26, 2021 and is available to pre-order digitally HERE. Today, Danny L Harle also announces a 2xLP Gatefold Vinyl pressing of the album on yellow and black splatter vinyl, which will feature an alternate sequencing to the project allowing listeners to experience Harlecore in another new way.
