The Saga Continues

French electro artist Danger is, once again, upping his own game with the newest chapter in his three-piece tale, EP III or "09/16/2007". Since the release of his first EP, Danger has been busy touring and promoting his fresh take on the genre, not that France needs any more street credibility when it comes to the electronic scene (ie. Daft Punk, Justice).

Danger's sound is much more varied, having no uniformed technique filling the gaps of every rhythm in each song. However there is a vibe that ties each track together giving it that distinct quality of something "fresh-out-of-the-box" in comparison to what most electronic artists are currently doing. MSTRKRFT and Justice started a trend that is now beating the electro-house genre to death, trance has been well established for a while, and indie-tronica is invading a younger and younger audience with each passing second. This is making it more rapidly difficult to find a unique and untested sound.

However, Danger is working at a different pace, both stylistically and chronologically. Though titled "EP III", this is only the second release from this mastermind. There are three EP's, three chapters to the acoustic story, which spans from 09/14 2007 to 09/16 2007. The track titles are also in reference to time, aptly named to the time of that particular day in which they correspond. Sort of a Star Wars-esque M.O., he decided to release the third chapter before the middle one, which is currently in the works. Check out EP III on March 30 and mark your calendars for a live show in Toronto (among others) on May 8, 2009.
