Premiere: Douglas Greed – “Guilty”

Douglas Greed

After beginning his musical journey in drum ‘n’ bass and hip-hop, Jena, Germany’s Douglas Greed (a.k.a. Mario Willms) gravitated toward house and techno.

His production work first caught our ear back in 2013 when we heard his bad-ass cut “Raw & Order” on The Gym’s Muscle Tuff label compilation. He went on to release acclaimed singles and albums on a variety of respected labels (Kompakt, BPitch Control, Infiné and Freude Am Tanzen) and has flipped the script in a meaningful way with each release.

Greed brings his vast talent to Shir Khan’s Exploited Records for the first time on “Guilty,” an utterly sublime two-tracker. We’re thrilled to world premiere the techy title track brandishing an emotive groove that subtly coaxes you into a state of somber euphoria.

“I made this track — or rather the sketch for this track — on a long train ride which took me almost through all of Germany on a south to north route from one gig to another,” he tells us.  o”The time flew by — even though it was an almost seven-hour trip. I was just nodding my head and got caught in one of those special moments that I even forgot to pay for my coffee in the train restaurant. That’s why it’s called ‘Guilty.'”

Douglas Greed’s “Guilty” is released February 15 on Exploited.
