Hitting iTunes and all digital shops & streaming on Thursday January 8th!
Darren Keen Is a one man beat wizard, who recently relocated from the cornfields of his native Omaha, Nebraska to the asphalt web of Brooklyn, New York. After 12 years of touring and releasing music in various projects, earlier this year Darren released a split EP with Machine Girl on Them Flavors. That split EP caught the ear of the Seclusiasis crew, all of who were especially impressed that this was Darren’s first foray into bass and footwork territory. That EP also featured a sneak peek at Darren’s “Higher” as remixed by juke stalwart DJ Earl (Tek Life). The original of “Higher” and three more distinctive up-tempo gems debut now on Roland is My Co-Pilot.
Darren’s fresh sound has been gaining praise from Thump, XLR8R, Big Shot Magazine, FACT, among others, and with Roland, more is sure to follow. Seclusiasis is proud to release the debut from this up-and-coming producer.
