about

San Francisco based mellow electronic duo, Windsurf's mini album "Weird Energy" nicely cooled down Japan's humid hot Summer last year. Dan Judd aka Sorcerer is one-half of the duo. Dan was a former member of a soft rock band Call And Response that was tight with Feist, and formed a cosmic pop band SHOCK in 2011. In late 2012 he released his solo debut single 'Heaven', bringing in melodious sense through his band experiences into dance tracks, where his originality is. As Sorcerer, he has released "White Magic" in 2007 and "Neon Leon" in 2008 from Tirk label in London. Also with his creative partner Sam Grawe, they put together "Coastlines" in 2008 as Windsurf from Norway's Internasjonal. In 2009 he toured Japan, by the help of Kensuke Saito aka 9dw and his label CATUNE. Since then "Step Pyramid / Universal Vision EP" has been a long waited release as Sorcerer. Side A 'Step Pyramid' works perfectly on dance floors keeping the melodies minimal, but with bright synth sounds and vocal cut up loops lock you into a breezing groove. Collage video on YouTube, 'Universal Vision' on side B is also a DJ friendly track with synth, vocal cut ups and guitars, plus a funky bass-line. 'Step Pyramid' is remixed by a Japanese duo Traks Boys, who are also know as the member of a city-pop group sssurrounddd. Uplifting remix, adding acid sequences and building up rhythm tracks for the dance floors. 'Universal Vision' gets remixed by The Beat Broker a veteran producer from the bay area who has close relationship with Sorcerer and made a Japan debut last year with his remix compilation CD "Nice to Mix You (Remix Works 2009-2012)". The dreamy synth, dance floor friendly rhythm approach pulls out the tasty parts the original has. Sorcerer is also releasing an EP in March on A Kind Of Presence a sub-label of Tokyo based up coming label Diskotopia. Suddenly getting busy rom this release, he is entering into a new phase.
