Huxley, aka Michael Dodman, is one of dance music’s highly regarded names, impossible to pigeon-hole, with releases ranging across the bassy 2014 house cut ‘Callin’’ with Roger Sanchez to the more recent old school vibes of ‘Pasty’ on Shall Not Fade. He recently toured the US to great acclaim and now the UK producer lands on big US dance label Ultra Music with ‘Tinpan Alley’.
This latest instalment sees this talented artist switch things up yet again. The smooth production on ‘Tinpan Alley’ is undeniably Huxley. The introduction of the steel drum sounds creates a carnival vibe, while the rolling drums and four to the floor beats are the unequivocal club vibes of Ibiza. Add in some quirky keys and percussion and you’ve got a clever piece of music from an expert producer at work.
“I made Tinpan Alley in lockdown 2020 when I was dreaming of all the great summers in Ibiza I’ve had over the years. I want to make something that incapsulated the feeling that the island gives me. Uplifting melodies, crossed with rolling bass and drums! When I wrote it, I thought I might never see the island again!” – Huxley
Huxley’s inimitable mix of house, tech house and techno, has created many a DJ weapon as snapped up by top tier labels, Knee Deep In Sound, Repopulate Mars, Toolroom and many more. It feels like another DJ favourite in the making as Huxley underlines the quality of his production skills once again.
