Yin and Yang (n.) – the concept of duality forming a whole. A fundamental premise in Chinese philosophy now transposed to the electronic dance industry through the creation of Proton “Editions”. Through encyclopaedic knowledge of the 850 strong Proton roster of labels Tripp Baronner has envisioned a new concept of the principle of seemingly polar opposites, coming together as interconnected and independent universal forces – life and death, the dark and the light: one complete entity.
From a passion for underground progressive house at opposite ends of the audio spectrum – the deep, shadowy atmospheres to the blissful, shimmering melodies, “Yin” and “Yang” were born in an effort to represent this phenomenon in musical form. Each release will provide a single remix of an existing Proton roster track for two inextricably linked labels in the form of a light (Yang) and dark (Yin) edition. Released on the same day, a strong contrast in styles will thus serve to complement each other and nourish the whole.
Yin and Yang – musical harmony through glorious discord.
