New track from Daroc


Daroc is like busses, you wait ages for new tracks then loads come at once. Luckily we can never get our fill of new Daroc tracks, especially tracks like his latest drop. In tribute to French singer, songwriter and composer Éric Charden, who passed away earlier this year.

The track is a cover of ‘La Bataille d’Albator’, Charden’s theme tune to the Captain Harlock animé series (known as ‘Albator’ in France, and a favourite of Daroc’s as a kid) and is instantly recognisable from that riff. Daroc is the perfect artist to keep the Sci-Fi feel in covering something like this, he creates a moody electronic mood that is full of exciting promise. Deep, dark, warping synth sounds counter optimistic melodies in a track that is a magical combination of French electronic music and French melody, Japanese theme structure, Futuristic SynthWave and just a hint of Disco. Daroc is on such a roll these days, we can;t wait to hear what he has in store for us next.
