DT8 Project returns to his self-run imprint with the release of It’s Only Us That’s Here, featuring two gorgeous trance tunes.
British DJ, producer, and composer Darren Tate has made a lasting impact on the electronic music scene over the past few decades. Those listening to trance in the early to mid-00s were able to get swept away by his vocal-driven sounds under the DT8 Project that found a home on his imprint, Mondo Records, while recent years have seen him grace Maelstorm Records, Enhanced Progressive, and Anjunabeats. Darren Tate added even more success to his already illustrious career when teaming up with Above & Beyond to score The Last Glaciers, which was paired with the news of his new project with Jono Grant from that trio, JODA.
While the sounds from JODA continue to permeate the scene, Darren Tate has also made it clear that he isn’t leaving DT8 Project behind by any means. Tracks under the alias arrived throughout 2022, such as “Half Awake” and “Restless.” Now he’s dropped off one of his biggest releases on Mondo Records, a beautiful two-tracker called It’s Only Us That’s Here.
The title track leads the way on this one as DT8 Project offers a progressive-fueled journey into the trance realm that’s brimming with bright synths and serene melodies, while the vocals from Dan Rowe (formerly known as Poloroid), will stir emotions in the depths of your core. Then, “Surrender” pops on to deliver a dose of energy that will leave listeners feeling the dancefloor heat with its larger-than-life nature as vocals from Rowe are layered in once again for added effect. Put this one on the next time you get behind the wheel for a long night drive, you won’t regret it.
Listen to It’s Only Us That’s Here on Spotify or your preferred platform, and make sure to follow DT8 Project on social media to stay in the know on future releases from this trance maestro.
