Los Angeles producer and DJ DESTRUCTO is set to storm the festival season this year with the release of his forthcoming HIGHER EP. Out June 10 on Boysnoize Records, the HIGHER EPfeatures two new, unreleased tracks—“Higher” and “2112,” both co-produced with U-Tern—along with remixes of the title track from French house producer Brodinski and Australian house/electro producer Tommy Trash.
On the HIGHER EP, DESTRUCTO solidifies his decades-long career in electronic music. “Higher”sees DESTRUCTO melding dreamlike melodies with an unmatched funky groove, while “2112”perfectly depicts DESTRUCTO’s obsession with technology and futuristic sounds as the bouncing bass ebbs and flows from beginning to end.
