mikkas syndrome

Big Fish Recordings is the Vancouver-based record label run by Electro-House DJs/producers Lazy Rich and Hirshee. As far as I’m concerned Big Fish is one of the few Electro-House labels out there that sticks true to its sound and continues to release good, hard-hitting Electro in a world where the genre of Electro-House has become watered down. Big Fish is home to some premier names in Electro-House like FTampa, Lucky Date, Dirtyloud, and of course Lazy Rich. But the label doesn’t just thrive on big-name artists – it also releases loads of music by up-and-coming producers and lesser-known DJs. I’d put Danish producer Mikkas somewhere in between. I found out about Mikkas when Porter Robinson exploded onto the scene and would often play one or two of his songs in live sets. Mikkas also remixed Porter Robinson’s “Unison” on the Spitfire LP. Lazy Rich kept me abreast of Mikkas through The Lazy Rich show, a weekly two-hour podcast of Electro-House. This past Friday Big Fish offered up Mikkas’ track “Syndrome” for free download. The track originally dropped in 2011 but it’s timeless and contains a perfect balance of hard-hitting Electro and melodic breaks. “Syndrome” is a little on the darker side but it shows off Mikkas’ excellent production skills. I think true Electro-House is a dying genre so I hope Mikkas and his label mates continue to crank out great tunes like “Syndrome”.
