  Maroon  
  29th release is the ZamZam Sounds debut of a fast-rising talent, the one Danny Scrilla, born Danny Pirkl. Now residing in Munich after time in Berlin and London, Scrilla has carved a path through multiple labels including Civil Music, Rudimentary Records and several releases on Om Unit’s mighty Cosmic Bridge imprint. It is these latter tunes that have brought him to prominence, and it was Om Unit himself that made the connection between Scrilla and ZamZam, a brilliant bit of A&R that we are very grateful for. His sound avoids easy categorization - it is deeply rooted in traditional dubwise, while seeming to pull in rhythmic, textural and melodic inspiration from a futuristic revisioning of jungle, footwork and house.

"Higher Plane” opens with a gorgeous flute melody, pattering percussion, a test tone and a maternal bassline all floating in etheric bliss, woven through with gently decaying delays. Almost imperceptibly other elements are pulled into the pulse’s gravity-well until the full riddim finally emerges, a restrained yet addictive 150 bpm rockers for sound systems on course to meet the rising sun.

“Maroon" is a highly original silky steppers powered by rubbery sub and cyborg saxophone riffs with Scrilla’s signature woozy, detuned delay trails and synaesthetic holograms. Alternating between half time and 4/4 propulsion, this subtle powerhouse of a tune has been championed on dubplate from DJs as varied as Rodigan and Toddla T.
