John Digweed’s Bedrock Records has delivered a stream of standout music in 2021, proving that the creativity of its artists has been flourishing during this difficult time. A tastemaker imprint determined to channel only the most authentic perspectives from across the dance music spectrum, the imprint continues to champion timeless music from truly skilled artists. Following his inclusion in Digweed’s esteemed Quattro compilation with ‘Free Your Mind’, Samer returns to the label to deliver his new single ‘Diaspora’ — out now across all streaming platforms, including the Bedrock Bandcamp page.
Worthy to stand alone as a single, ‘Diaspora’ is a masterclass in refined progressive house, serving flawless percussion and intoxicating dark undertones. Hypnotic in its effect, the cut is founded on serene soundscapes and subtle instrumentation, with injections of acid-tinged synth-work giving the track its true authentic identity. The cut dips and peaks throughout its 7-minute run-time, with intelligent layering adding a depth of sound that’s hard to come by; a testament to Samer’s obvious experience and technical prowess.
