Dar.Ra has released his new single titled ‘Rise Like The Sun’ in three different remixes.
From that first note, you can feel that Dar.Ra vibe that he is rapidly becoming known for. But what’s underneath is that rabid dance vibe featuring an infectious fretless style bass and a Latin-dance hybrid percussion that perfectly underscores the hook-filled acoustic guitar line in the Columbian Sun Cut, to the bombastic rock/club mix of the UK Sun Cut, to the drum rave rhythm that is the US Sun Cut. There is a flavor for all and all to be had.
This is a definite departure for Dar as he gains street cred in new genres while retaining the signature that is his music.
