Darius is an uprising French artist, known as an inaugural player of a recent House music movement taking its roots in France and quickly spreading around the world. Infused by the uplifting beat of Disco and Funk, Darius add a certain underground intricacy to his music, setting himself alongside his successful house compatriots. After his standard setting jewel 'Maliblue', Terrence N'Guyen was a key part in bringing Cherokee to the international scene.
No superhero but still as good without a sidekick, he is now garnering attention for his solo act. In 2013, Darius has played alongside industry big names such as Super Discount, Ben Pearce, Yuksek or Cyril Hahn to name a few. Either in his 'Velour' EP or in his remixes of follow DJs, as a duo or solo, in France or America, everybody wants to hear the distinctive Darius touch. In February he released his 'Romance' EP that explores even further his beloved dreamlike aesthetics.
One of the most exciting young talents to emerge from France, DJ / producer Darius releases new single 'Helios', the title track from his forthcoming similarly titled EP out on Roche Musique this April 20th 2015.

'Lost In The Moment', featuring Wayne Snow, is the first single from Darius's debut album 'Utopia' (24th November). After starting off alongside Roche Musique, he is now signed on record label Animal63, which was partly created by Manu Barron.
The track perfectly captures the essence of the album: plaintive and poignant, lead by a kind of tear-filled joy. The video was directed by Lisa Paclet, and follows two boys and a girl (young androgynous actress Raph, seen in Bruno Dumont's 'Ma Loute') in a desert, then to the edge of a cliff. A synth-filled vertigo which ends in a water cave and perfectly illustrates the song's leap into the unknown. In the tradition of Alan Braxe and Fred Falke, filters are laid down on a slow-paced boogie rhythm. Like a melancholy mantra, a looped vocal sample repeats the title.

After the success of 'Romance' Darius comes back with the single 'Helios' featuring Wayne Snow to be released onRoche Musique. It's no doubt that Darius has shown his special touch, and 'Helios' is another proof of the producer's talent and singularity.
The single is a deep and lovely ballad that fits perfectly to the voice of Wayne Snow.
On the remix duties we could count on Bondax, Pomo, giants that we don't have to introduce anymore. The third remix comes from Myd, one of the four Club Cheval member, who is actually working on his first solo EP on Bromance Records alongside Club Cheval's debut album, planned for fall 2015.

One of the most exciting young talents to emerge from France, DJ / producer Darius releases new single 'Helios', the title track from his forthcoming similarly titled EP out on Roche Musique this April 20th.
From his remixes of Flight Facilities, Bondax and MO racking up millions of hits online to performing alongside such electronic heavyweights as Ben Pearce, Cyril Hahn and Superdiscount, 2014 has been a life-changing year for the producer. Already well-known in his native France for his progressive emotive productions due to last year's critically adored EP 'Romance', Darius manages to perfectly marry the up-tempo rhythms of disco and funk with euphoric house rhythms that are simply breath-taking. Arriving just in time for spring, new track 'Helios' is a mellow soul-laden slice of house that cements Darius as one of most exciting new talents to watch out for this year.
