New Music Tuesday 02 - Palace
Posted by Alex Bohea on September 10, 2013
A new, weekly feature here at The Great Divide Blog is our New Music Tuesday; introducing you to an artist or band you may not have heard of. We can’t guarantee that you won’t have heard of them, but if that’s the case, it might give you a little reminder to revisit them sometime soon.
Sharing a name with a pretty hyped clothing brand is a good way to gain some exposure but luckily for Sam, his tunes more than surpass his namesake. He’s been gaining steady popularity on the house and bass music scene and with a recent signing to Unknown to the Unknown records, home of such artists as Mumdance, Sinden and Capracara, that popularity is only going to grow. Check out his mix on Mecha Sounds for a taste of what he plays.
But it’s not just his mixes that make Palace worth a listen. His productions are well, simply put, incredible. Taking influence from arguably the best era in garage, his productions are as heavy as they are melodic, and pretty much guaranteed to make you want to move. Originally from Essex, Sam is definitely worth keeping any eye on as I imagine you’ll be pretty gutted that you weren’t there from the start when he blows up. Take a listen to ‘Touch Me’ below and discover some dirty, garage-influenced house.
