Dan Curtin is back and banging drums! His A-side, „Beat Fiend,“ is right on the nose! A sole drummer in a transcendental musical village warmly welcomes the listener followed by several hollow rolling drums as pied piper ravels and whirls through the village. Pressure and tension build up through various woodwinds and percussion as instrument-armed villagers pour out into empty alleys in synchronized dance motions spreading revolutionary joy throughout the ceremonial voyage. Listen closely, a single faded hip-hop lyricist leads the people to a full blown dance party. This track effectively plays the puppeteer to anyone listening; manipulating and leaving no limbs to rest. The B-side, „Amphibian,“ sets a more tragic and mellow tone. Rolling keyboards and flaring rockets soar through this track creating a virtual battle ground of disturbed vocals and twisted souls. The main drum beat creates a ceaseless flow throughout a chaotic story introducing ghosts of past, present and future. Dan decided to veer away from „the usual“ with this creation; a track that seeps only into the deepest darkest thoughts of the listener.

Reynold (Trenton Rec.): “ Great release from Dan here.. I have to say that despite the fact that it would seem that everybody thinks that just putting bongos on a straight minimal track makes it funky... which is a total non sense.. You need the Funk... and so I am glad to finally hear someone that makes a percussion track with soul!!! But then again Dan is straight up Cleveland Midwest so.. what do you expect??? Will definitely play and chart.. full support from me!”

Stephan Bodzin: “Great Release. Full Support. ”

Tsugi Mag (France): “Avec le morceau “Beat Fiend”, Dan Curtin nous envoûte littéralement avec ses sons hypnotiques, son beat funky et sa rythmique minimale. Même combat sur “Amphibian” où le ton se veut à la fois deep et dark. Des compositions bien prenantes qui prennent tout leur sens après plusieurs écoutes.”
