Listen: DJ pgz - The Dance / Hypnotic Subrurbs

Gunai/Kunai & Yorta Yorta artist dj pgz delivers the latest release on influential dance label Butter Sessions

Off the back of a big few years that have seen him making a name for themselves in the Australian dance music underground is dj pgz, who today drops two absolute stompers, in the form of The Dance / Hypnotic Suburbs

Out today on influential Naarm / Melbourne-based label Butter Sessions, The Dance is a rolling onslaught of deep, dark bass lines and intricate, syncopated percussion that slowly evolves over the tracks length.

Hypnotic Suburbs on the flip sees pgz chilling things out just a tad, taking cues from halftime drum and bass and UKG, with all manner of squeaky synths and bouncy bassline, capped off by MC Teether’s smooth as silk flow. 

DJ pgz expands on the release saying “Features with people in my community is what making music is all about. I'm always interested in creating something together, and if folks I want to collaborate with enjoy what I do, then that's better than the release to me. 

When I took this joint to Corey [Butter Sessions]  it was still half an idea and he helped me with getting this track over the line instrumentally with arrangement, sounds, mix and energy. Corey was fresh to collaborate with, he taught me some secret techniques too which I'll hope to pull out for future releases”.
