With his Voyage Direct label, Tom Trago has always championed Dutch talent – DJs and producers from the tight-?knit local scene whose music moves and inspires him in equal measure. He’s at it again on this 19th release, handing a debut 12” to fast-? rising, Amsterdam-?based DJ/producer Elias Mazian. The 25 year-?old is a much-?loved figure on the Amsterdam scene, and has gained a reputation as one of the city’s true underground heroes. His DJ sets are rooted in contemporary deep house and techno, but also take inspiration from ‘80s electro, Stevie Wonder, P-?funk, disco, and the surging, snare-?heavy pulse of early Chicago ghetto-?house.
