Riding high on the huge support for the original Indigo EP, Tareq returns for round two – a huge remix package. Here we see Part 1, with stunning reworks stretching across different shades of house and disco. Horse Meat Disco’s Severino, Paper Crows, Glovibes, Nosak, Hiras, join with an extended rework from the producer of the original EP, Lacquer.
Inhabiting the same space on the dancefloor as Depeche Mode at their funkiest, the original “Indigo” is a feast of intelligent, forward-thinking Electro-Pop vibes to transport any listener to another world, produced by the french electronic artist Lacquer.
Tareq is a London-based Greek-Jordanian recording artist, who has been producing electronic music since 2005. Tareq’s debut solo album “Cocoon” was voted Best Electronic Album of the Year 2010 in his native Greece, and included the hits “Cold”, “Feel Me” and “Mosquito” – with Mixmag naming “Feel Me” feat Natassa Bofiliou (Mighty Mouse Remix) as their Tune of the Month for August 2011.
Tareq’s second album “Fish” embodies a different approach to pop music from his first album and includes successful collaborations with a number of Greek Indie Pop artists such as Natassa Bofiliou, Ilia Darlin, Marietta Fafouti and Marina Satti. Tareq has also remixed many artists such as Casey Spooner, Fischerspooner, Gala, Marsheaux, CREEP, Mighty Mouse and many more.

CUR (Can U Relate?) is a new London-based Greek DJ duo made up of Tareq, one of the most exciting new electronic producers from Greece, with two full-lengths (“Cocoon”, “Fish”) and quality remixes for Casey Spooner, Creep, Mighty Mouse under his belt, and Vangelis R, the man behind the most-excellent Can U Relate? parties. The two came together through a mutual love of all things house and disco.
The duoo has shared their brand-new track “Strangeways”, a moody, piano-led housey tune perfect for those late-night car rides around the city. As a bonus, you can also stream the pair’s first-ever track, called “Southpaw”, below. Via La.Ga.Sta.
