Local Dialect Embodies Ancient Greek Mythology in Latest EP, Erebus
Former Princeton graduates Local Dialect have teamed up with the remarkable sublabel Desert Hearts Black with their 2-track EP, Erebus. As a melodic house and techno DJ duo from Brooklyn, Sam Perricone and Reed Tan began their musical adventure in 2017.
Over the last six years, their devotion to producing experimental new sounds has been instrumental in their flourishing career, as they have been accompanied with support, releases, and performances from Gorgon City, Bob Moses, and Pete Tong. The duo’s latest release derived its inspiration from Erebus (God of Darkness) and Prometheus (God of Fire) of Ancient Greek mythology.
The sound on both tracks thrives on dominating synthesizers, melodies that glide comfortably across compelling basslines, and an ever-growing palette of harmonic composition. The flow of euphonious sound the pair have succeeded in producing has maintained their platitude of allowing their music to tell a story.
Creating a momentum of soul-moving music directly from their basement studio in Queens, Local Dialect have done a sublime job in sewing together a dynamite release that will take their listeners to an impassioned soundworld.
