There is a particular time in Detroit in which we all come together and celebrate electronic music in its many varieties of sound. A feeling that we all gather around and undeniably catch when we stand in the crowds moving and swaying to the beats. In honor of this time, we have collaborated with PITS co-founder XIA to offer a free download for the festival season. LTL (Larger than Life) is an homage to that feeling and the energy shared from a energetic, classic, speaker-banging, house anthem!

Mist of Serenity is the lead single by electronic duo Torus Eyes, taken from and promoting their upcoming EP release. The song is about letting go of the ego and allowing space for connection and gratitude to flourish. Bringing surreal imagery to the real, they encourage the listener to relax and imagine the mind is like steam evaporating, dispelling the notion of easily understood ideas with layers of dense material. Torus Eyes holds the fourth installment of the PRMR series by Detroit-based label PITS, sharing up and coming electronic music producers from the city.

Prepare to be locked into a hard groove because Roque Ybarra has provided PITS with two dance-floor ready jack tunes in the form of his Lock Down EP. ‘Workin’ and ‘Clink Clink’ both bear a heavy bassline that is complemented with plenty of slapping percussion. Roque has been active in the Detroit dance music scene for the past 5 years, and is currently running two monthly parties at The Whiskey Disco and Temple Bar as part of the much beloved local DJ duo So Vague with co-conspirator Beatloaf. He keeps his approach to dance music light and easy-going with a knack for pulling out the deep tech burners at peak hour.
