‘Balance presents Do Not Sleep’ features Larry Heard, Laurent Garnier, Apollonia and more…

Balance Music has announced that Ibiza mainstay Darius Syrossian has been drafted in to create a double-disc Do Not Sleep mix for the label, which will be released on Friday 29th July.

Disc one of ‘Balance presents Do Not Sleep’ was recorded live in Buenos Aires, whilst the entire package leans heavily on Syrossian’s own productions, including this year’s blistering ‘Beetham Tower’. Elsewhere, tracks from Larry Heard, Laurent Garnier, Apollonia, Tim Deluxe, Deetron and Makam all feature.

Speaking about the mix, the Do Not Sleep boss, said, “I wanted the mix to represent me as a DJ. My music is aimed at the dance floor and when I produce music or DJ, the main focus is about the energy and the emotion of the music and the intensity of it.”
