Darren is a rhythmic prodigy of sorts, his music could be stripped of all harmony and melody and would probably work based on the rhythmic interactions and drum tones alone. Less strictly Footwork influenced than his last Orange Milk album, ‘He’s Not Real’, ‘It’s Never Too Late To Say You’re Welcome’ is more expansive and colorful, mixing huge triplet kick drums against digital mallet tones and contrasting general-MIDI sounds. The diverse sound-pallet injects a sense of chance into club and Footwork templates, allowing each track to carve its own unique sonic space.

All songs written and recorded by Darren Keen in collaboration with the creative geniuses who created Ableton Live and Maschine.
"Be True" contains a sample of Spandau Ballet, obviously.
Thanks to Orange Milk Records for believing in me and being nice to me.

To anyone who has listened to my music, come to a show, or follows me on social media I would just like to say, "You're Welcome".
