Darius is the alias of Parisian electronic musician Terence N'Guyen, an artist that has been making waves on the sultry house scene for close to a decade. While he made his debut back in 2012, he soon joined forces with French label Roche Musique for his proper label debut in 2014 and he's since released multiple EPs and a full-length album on the trendsetting imprint. His music is heavily inspired by the filtered house grooves of the French Touch era, and Darius expands upon this foundational sound with his own unique and infectious mixture of house, pop, and R&B flavors. Late last year Darius unveiled two new singles, "EQUILIBRIUM" and "APOLOGY," that showcase his latest studio creations as he prepares for the release of a new project in 2021.
Originally aired on February 14th, Darius provides this year's special 'Valentine's Day' mix and he delivers in amazing fashion with a seductive, romantic, and love-filled mix that touches upon house, R&B, soul, funk, and more.
