Drop The Lime Asks If You’re Ready to ‘Enter the Night’
Brooklyn-based DJ Drop the Lime has just dropped a new album unlike any we have heard before. Enter the Night brings to light DTL’s secret obsession with rockability featuring influences by Richie Valens as Richie Hawtin.
“I grew up with parents who constantly played 50’s and 60’s rock n’ roll, blues, old country and soul in the house,” says DTL. “Growing up in the urban active environment of NYC ignited my teenage rebellious ways to drop the guitar and romp with the club hounds and bass vamps, eventually leading me to take the career path as a DJ. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I rediscovered my love for the energy of 50s/60s rock n’ roll and blues to moonlight my club sets with rockability and jump-blues sets and eventually created club edits to mix into my dance DJ gigs.”
The fusion of old rock with new dance becomes a haunting and beautiful midnight ride, influenced by secret after-hours and underground speakeasies, by the ever-changing streets of Manhattan (“Bandit Blues”) and the asinthe-soaked voodoo dens of New Orleans (“Not the Only One”). A beautiful marriage between blues guitar licks and sheer dance music wizardry, Enter the Night is sure to become a trademark in DTL’s career as well as a piece of EDM history.
