Techno duo Pig&Dan have recorded a new album entitled ‘Destination Unknown’, featuring the musicians and singers who’ve inspired them throughout their career.
A departure from the techno they’ve produced for Cocoon and their own Elevate imprint, this album breaks boundaries and fuses together genres and styles far beyond electronic music’s own increasingly broad spectrum.
Featured on the album are Dan’s father and Average White Band founder Malcolm ‘Molly’ Duncan, together with California-born singer/lyricist Glen Anthony Henry, aka Ageel, funk guitar guru Tim Cansfield, cultural hip-hop master Jamie Reixach, aka Giacomo, legendary reggae vocalist Paul De Swardt, tech house legend and Soul Camp founder Werner Niedermeier, Spanish jazz genius Jaime Rosello, aka Ruspei, and Grammy-winning soundtrack guitarist Joan Bibiloni.
Released on John Digweed’s Bedrock label, ‘Destination Unknown’ pushes Pig&Dan’s personal envelope of influences to a wider audience who may not have been exposed to downtempo, funk and the almost anything-goes philosophy of Balearic music.
The guys explain all to DJ Mag in an interview — coming soon.
Pig&Dan ‘Destination Unknown’ will be released on Bedrock Music on 1st September.
