Peter Croce is a staple of the midwest electronic and DJ scene. This cut represents a piece of culture and soul, placed with pride on a 12" that you will always leave in your crate, to travel with you to any gig, or listened to at home.
After two years as Rocksteady Disco head honcho, Peter Croce makes his 12” debut with Revival. This EP hinges around a speech by Reverend William Barber II calling for us “to be the moral defibrillators of our time”, and serves as a spiritual call to arms for house-heads all over the world.
Musically, Peter’s Detroit upbringing shines through on Revival. Tight too-techno-for-house and too-house-for-techno multi-layered drum programming is coupled with driving and minimal M1 organ programming, completed by his own electric bass performance. With inspiration from Floorplan, Joe Claussell, Cajmere, and many more, Peter makes a musical statement drawn America’s greatest electronic music hubs.
“We must shock this nation with the power of love. We must shock this nation with the power of mercy. We must shock this nation and fight for justice for all.”
Revival, quite appropriately, gets a release on 1/20/17 (Inauguration Day).
Early support from Jamie 3:26 (Chicago), Ben Westbeech (London), Chuck Daniels (Detroit), Ladymonix (LA / Detroit), Stacey “Hotwaxx” Hale (Detroit), and Pontchartrain (Detroit).
