DJ Mizzy: “Prost” – gorgeously phrased synth lines, and subtly floating aural overtones

Boasting a sound that goes from his favored deep house grooves to hip-hop, DJ Mizzy, born Claudel Larose, is an international DJ and producer raised just outside of New York. Inspired by artists such as Sander van Doorn, DJ Yonny, and Avicii, Mizzy has a strong passion for his work. Throughout his 18 years of DJing, Mizzy has traveled all over the world to perform, using the original Technic SL1200 turntable as his prime tool. His latest endeavor is “Prost”, a German influenced track with a melodic tone, incorporating a subtle Caribbean flair. DJ Mizzy’s melodies are emotionally evocative and his arrangements are like paint on a canvas.

But where this producer truly rises above, establishing himself in the upper echelon of EDM, is in his originality. Mizzy is grounded, connected, powerful, and real, and his production never feels too shiny, canned, and artificial, as often can happen in this genre.

Aside from the thumping four to the floor beat, there are many beautiful moments on “Prost” but none as gorgeous as the breakdown and heartbeat that follows. The sparse build-up is attention-grabbing, as DJ Mizzy uses white noise to gain momentum, before breaking back into the beat which by now has taken a new direction.

At its most energetic, the track makes the most of being given the freedom to rupture the dancefloor with a distinctive boom and pound, but the sparks can also be found in the synth breaks and builds.

Others have ventured into this sort of changing-tempo and mood, electronica territory, but hearing DJ Mizzy’s thumping percussion and sticky synths do it, is a revelation. He must be given full credit for branching out so much on this track, instead of limiting himself to a simple straight club anthem.

Here he has brought his own personal touch to all of it. There are gorgeously phrased synth lines, and subtly floating aural overtones, ranging in volume from barely audible to explosive, as well as energetic drums. It’s hard to think of a reason why any intelligent EDM fan should not like this track.

DJ Mizzy will no doubt gain widespread attention with this crowd-pleasing arrangement – a glowing mix of kick drums, synth squelches and hi-hats that somehow transcend dance music’s many sub-divisions. Mizzy shows solidity in musical abrasions cavalcading both the straight and narrow, as well as adventurous sonic elements.

“Prost” is an example of the sound that makes DJ Mizzy such an extraordinary artist in the too-often formulaic world of dance music. He makes synthesizers and drums, live and breathe in a way few others can. The powerhouse beat, cunning electronics and resonating ambience are delivered with imagination and flair, all pointing to an even brighter future.
