  • Born Free Records man DJ Sling's first solo record, The Secret, is on the way. Daniel Isling has played and helped throw parties around Stockholm since 2001, but he's only put out a few of his own tracks and remixes—more often he's been involved in collaborative productions, with either Samo DJ (as Sling & Samo and Hound Love) or towLie (as Empfänger). The Secret, besides being his debut solo 12-inch, counts as the 30th release on Born Free, the label he operates alongside Samo and DJ City. The EP brings together four tunes "made in a manic foggy darkness during the first weeks of psychosomatic treatment," and we're told to expect "melancholic, lifesaving house hits" when it lands in October. Born Free's output since its launch around six years ago has also featured artists like Baba Stiltz, the mind behind this week's RA podcast, and Powder, whom we interviewed in 2016 as part of our Breaking Through series. In lieu of samples for The Secret, listen to a recent DJ Sling mix for the Rush Hour Store, titled Community Pool Dweller.
