Dungeon Meat are always guaranteed to release sonic weapons echoing their mantra and objective; ‘to bring the finest club cuts designed to detonate dancefloors’.

This rings true with the 13th release from the label, an EP from hot new talent Azaad. The dynamite is stacked, packed and ready to blow up clubs worldwide and the lucky few who possessed the promos, have been doing just that with the EP doing the rounds in establishments, festivals and events all over the world including DC-10, Bret, Underground Ibiza, Houghton and so many more.

Azaad has long built a name with music that spans multiple genres. Diversity in music is at the core of him. Azaad’s sound has a common feature recognized by recurring themes; the nostalgia, the melody and the cosmic depth, which drags you, but without losing energy.

This is a serious work, carefully cared for, which lends itself to starting and not returning to reality until it is finished: the headphones are like the oxygen canister that allow us to dive to the bottom of this great sound rotation, of this orbit cosmic, and being there in a state of hypnotic fascination.

Azaad Bio:
Emerging out of London, Azaad sets himself apart by presenting a highly mature, raw and direct sound with impressive ease. Drawing from numerous influences throughout his ever-growing record collection, Azaad’s performances often feature lost 90s UKG gems and rare finds from the golden era of US, UK, French & Italian house, as well as his own productions.
2022 saw Azaad unleash a streak of releases on highly regarded UK labels such as MicroHertz and Beeyou. The releases were extremely well received and supported throughout, gathering airtime from the likes of Brawther, Tristan Da Cunha, Enzo Siragusa, Reiss, Chris Stussy, Archie Hamilton, Sweely, Fabe and Laidlaw (to name a few).
With a growing number of scheduled performances between the UK and Europe, supported by an impressive release calendar for 2023, Azaad is laying the foundations to become one of the industry’s most unique and respected artists.
