If we're talking about the UK broken beat scene, then Daz I Kue is a name that remains constant throughout its history, creating some of the finest examples of the genre, both originals and remixes. He is a hefty influence on the new generation of broken-beat makers and electronic producers, including everyone at Albert's Favourites and Hector Plimmer, it seems.
His remix of Plimmer's "Step" from the critically acclaimed 2019 album Next To Nothing, is a demonstration of why he's so important. Heavy broken rhythms, latin-influenced percussion, massive bass and epic runs of strings make us all the more desperate to be back in darkened rooms listening to banging sound systems. But even until then, this one runs through enough drama and energy to lift our spirits in our own homes too.
