After a very impressive debut album, Darling Farah offers up a live edit of 'Aaangel' before a hearty remix treatment; Jimmy Edgar adds a sexy bump and grind to 'Body', Lando Kal does a brooding eerie version of 'Aaangel' and Parisian Bambounou boxes 'Fortune' out into a fidgety cavernous stomper. Ace.

Following up on two excellent EPs Detroit-born and United Arab Emiriates based Darling Farah drops his debut album. 'Body' showcases the young producer's penchant for eerily sparse and deep dub-techno, which he intersperses with melodic arpeggios and haunting electronica. Impressive!
Young über-talent Darling Farah continues to define his style on his second EP. Title track 'Division' is a powerful, minimalistic dub-tech workout intended for the floor, while tracks like 'Foregin' and 'Model' add broken house and electronica tweaks to a highly coherent EP. Recommended.

Second release on Civil Music by Darling Farah and this one's a bomb: 'Exxy' is a powerful, minimalist Detroit 'stepper that wouldn't feel out of place on Hotflush. 'Younger' and 'Show Me' surprise with more adventurous arrangements, and 'Crown' follows a moody(mannish) straight and housey path. Ace!
