Local Album Review: Louis David, Juan Rojas, and Dsan Powell - Revolutionary EP

Louis David, Juan Rojas, and Dsan Powell 
Revolutionary EP (petFood)


petFood label was formed in 2008 by native Miamian DJ/producers Lazaro

Casanova and Jay-You as a launching pad for their own tropical-flavored

brand of late-night club beats. They've since continued to expand their

artist roster and sonic gamut, thanks to quality contributions by both

local and international producers like Mary Velo, Gil Montiel, and


The label's eighth release, the Revolutionary EP,

showcases the fledgling work of three locals. They've made their names  known in the burgeoning underground techno scene revolving around

downtown Miami and Club Space's afterhours: DJ/producers Louis David, Juan Rojas, and Dsan Powell. In place of a traditional EP

consisting of multiple originals with accompanying remixes,

the Revolutionary EP provides a trio of variations on a single theme, highlighting the three producers' distinct styles.

Louis David's "Revolutionary" mix is driven by a funked-up undulating bassline, deep compelling chords and a jackin' house beat. Meanwhile, Dsan Powell alights somewhere on the techier end of things with an interpretation more in the vein of the atmospheric minimal he bangs out during his DJ sets as Space resident. 

The standout track, however, has to be Juan Rojas' mix, a sultry and delectably deep peak-time banger that you can almost feel the steam rising from like a body grooving in the dark recesses of an illegal warehouse party.

Listen out for the Revolutionary EP, which will be hitting online stores on Tuesday, August 17 and is sure to get plenty of play at the clubs before summer winds down in the MIA.
