disCerN is a brand new studio partnership formed at the beginning of 2013 and comprised of esteemed DJs and producers Jonny Cruz and Silky. The two met, instantly bonded over music and began conjuring up magic in the studio. After a few sessions they realized they were really onto something special and thus the disCerN project was born.
Proof of their dual powers came soon after getting together when they got signed up by cult Los Angeles label Culprit (for the single ‘Calling For You’, which continues to climb the Beatport charts), Lee Burridge’s Get Weird label and Michael Tello (Pillowtalk) and Ray Zuniga’s imprint Touch Of Class Records, whilst they have also remixed for Lower East, Alola and Faceless Recordings. What’s more, Pete Tong recently featured the aforementioned collaborative single ‘Calling For You’ on BBC Radio One’s Essential Selection two weeks in a row. In April the Air London pair undertake a tour of the US, with a debut at famed Berlin club Watergate later in the same month.
Few new collaborations can have had the early and immediate success of these two then, but that’s not all they have in the pipeline; the techno legend that is Timo Maas has personally signed a new disCerN single ‘Coarse Language’ for his CD mix compilation forthcoming this summer on Toronto’s My Favorite Robot Records, and disCerN will also mix the next edition of Omid 16B’s Alola Record label CD compilation following in the footsteps of people like Mr C and Danny Howells.
As if that wasn’t enough, disCerN also have a full length album due for release on Touch of Class later this year that will really showcase all aspects of their musical backgrounds, whilst this pair’s recent back to back DJ sets have made many people around the world take note thanks to the way they so coherently weave together sounds into captivating dancefloor soundtracks. With more heavy releases and remixes in the works, these boys are sure to continue their stratospheric rise in the coming weeks and months.
