One of the scene’s most in demand producers and DJs, Darius Syrossian returns to Defected to release ‘White Rabbit’ on 3rd December. Following a slew of heavy hitters on Defected and DFTD, including his 2019 collab with Jamie Jones ‘Rushing’ and solo label debut ‘Come On Come On’, as well as his slamming, disco flavoured two-tracker ‘Tivoli’s Groove / Mustang 74’.

Born late in the studio one night just before the world went into lockdown and demonstrating his breadth of musical influences, ‘White Rabbit’ is Darius’ take on the cult 1967 psychedelic record by Jefferson Airplane bearing the same name. Reworked for his DJ sets into a chunky main room cut, Darius kept ‘White Rabbit’ back until dancefloors reopened. Met with a number of ID requests as he debuted it across summer ’21, a limited white label vinyl only release of 300 copies on his own Moxy Muzik imprint has now evolved into a full digital release. 

With all the markers of a club heater, a refreshed vocal and reverberating guitar riffs add an electrifying quality that makes ‘White Rabbit’ stand out from the crowd. From big main room moments to the darker recesses of the dancefloor, expect to hear this one dominate soundsystems for some time to come.

“This track was born in the studio just before lockdown when I was listening to the original track late one night. I came up with the idea to rework it for dancefloors to use as a curveball, then Covid's first lockdown came. Because I finished it in lockdown I felt it would be wasted to do anything with it, so I sat on the track for 18 months. Coming out of lockdown this track started blowing up dancefloors and I was getting bombarded with track ID requests. It’s then I realised this could be something quite massive, so initially I pressed 300 white label copies for my limited edition MOXY EDITS white label record label. It was clear this needed to be on something way bigger, so I teamed up with the Defected crew to release this properly. Whether it’s small intimate venues or large capacity gigs like Printworks London, whenever I have played this track it has done the same amount of damage.”- Darius Syrossian
