Kavinsky released his long-awaited debut album OutRun in February, and now Casablanca is releasing the OddLook EP, which features remixes from The Weeknd, A-Trak and Surkin.
The Weeknd’s remix is now available to stream- it’s a seductive re-imagination of the original, with The Weeknd adding a killer topline throughout the entire song.
Surkin to release debut artist album “USA” – a fantasy eighties soundscape
Marble is proud to announce the November 7th release of Surkin’s debut artist album, “USA.”
Originally designed to be out on Institubes, Marble was the logical choice to release “USA” after the demise of the influential French label. It features 16 tracks, with guest vocals by Detroit’s Ann Saunderson (Inner City) and Chicago’s Kevin Irving (the voice of house blueprint “Move Your Body” by Marshall Jefferson); and two collaborations with friend and label mate Bobmo, whom with Surkin works as High Powered Boys.
It’s a joyous, juvenile, body-moving record, based on the idea of a radio station called Fireworks FM, set up in Silver Springs. The whole vibe exhales a fantasized eighties soundscape, infused with dance subgenres from that era but dramatically edited by Surkin’s own imaginary memories.
Club tracks galore, but also expect more melodic emotional mid-tempo cuts, but definitely not in a filler way. Mastery all over the place yet infused with a tremendous feeling of exuberance and freedom. Needless to say it’s an instant classic. Surkin

Para One and friends release a megamix to launch new label Marble preluding his exclusive UK performance at London’s Scala on 9th April
In the lead up to his exclusive London performance for The Playground on the 9th April at Scala, a megamix full of Para One tracks from new label Marble has been released. The label has been launched in response to the closing of legendary French electro imprint, Institubes, and is co-founded by coherts Bobmo and Surkin.
The megamix which highlights tracks soon to come from the label has already amassed an enormous amount of attention within the 1st week with tens of thousand of plays and hundreds of comments already proving their unique brand of peak-time electro music is in demand more than ever.
Manager of Para One, Olivier Linglet, states:
‘Even though the demise of Institubes may come as a shock to the electronic music world, when Para decided to team up with the others to form Marble there was no doubt in my mind and theirs that this is going to be a huge success. It will continue to carry the French electronic sound that is already gaining worldwide attention. The megamix reflects this as will Para’s live show in London.’
