The pint-sized French phenom may have skipped high school, but he’s already made a career for himself as one of France’s biggest rising stars. Pacha NYC proudly presents Surkin on Friday May 1st, 2009. As a former four-to-the-floor hater, Surkin got into dance music through Detroit ghettotech and thanks to the internet started to dig deeper into club music history focusing on Miami Bass and big room Chicago house. Add a thick layer of glammed-up filtered house courtesy of French dons Daft Punk and youíve got the full Surkin mille-feuilles.
In May 2006, Parisian label Institubes released not one, but two Surkin records at once, ìGhetto Obsessionî and ìRadio Fireworks.î The response was tremendous, played and playlisted by everybody from the Ed Banger and Erol Alkan cabal to Boys Noize and Laidback Luke. Those tracks even managed to break the indie dance glass ceiling by smashing main rooms all over the globe. Radio Fireworks emerged as a genuine club hit, topping both Justiceís AND Myloís “Best tracks of 2006″ lists.
Surkin, with his first album due out in October is still riding high of his latest EP, ìNext of Kinî featuring the mega hit, “White Knight Two,” that just made Mixmagís top 100 tracks list of 2008. Add to that a Mixmag cover featuring him alongside NYC favorites The Martinez Brothers and Dubstep king Skream (naming them the “New School” of dance,) Pacha NYC together with Surkin will be exploring a whole new genre of dance music that is growing ever so quickly. Joining Surkin is the latest crop of NYC talent, Trouble & Bass DJ’s (The Captain & Star Eyes), JDH & Dave P (Fixed NYC), Michael Meds (Ruff Club), Dances With White Girls, DJ Ayres (The Rub) and Small Change (Pure Fire).
