Proxy – Shut Up!


Artist Name: Proxy
Title Name: Shut Up!
Label: Turbo Recordings
Reviewed by: Rory O’Maley

If you’re unfamiliar with Proxy, prepare to have your ears torn forcibly from your head in a brutal wave of electro fury. No exaggerations here, I’m not an aggressive person but Proxy’s screaming production and flat out nasty hooks will grab you, shake you up and refuse to let you go until you join the savage mood of the music, hyping you up and making timid listeners feel like the baddest mother in the room.

Blaring bass, relentless alarm cries, rave synths, trippy bridges and massive beats makes the Russian’s single a shoo-in anthem for Europe’s winter raves…nothing like a riot to warm you up eh? The remix comes courtesy of John Roman, a Canadian tech house wunderkind who transforms the screamer into an ambient, slow building techno rework with a monster of a drop.

Shut Up! will be out shortly through Turbo Recordings, and we’re looking forward to hearing it kill a dance floor (in both senses of the word). It’s certainly not intelligent listening, but Proxy’s new banger is definitely a heap of fun. 




Proxy’s ‘Shut Up!’ is now available on iTunes.
