Featured Tracks

Trapdoor Records have teamed up with DIE HIGH RECORDS to present an original track from British newcomer ZZZ.
Ever since we heard the the rework of T2′s classic ‘Heartbroken’, we’ve been hooked on ZZZ’s original approach on jersey club music. ‘Honey’ holds similar vibes.. but don’t let that mellow introduction fool you, the track quickly accelerates into a wild combination of sounds driven by an unpredictable rhythm & impeccable timing.
This is our first co-release with Australian based label DIE HIGH, who share a passion for fresh sounds including releases with our UK comrades Daktyl, Maxx Baer and Daffy. Their passion for their craft is clear as they put their focus into music that matters. Grab this free download from the DH Facebook & follow ZZZ!
