Drumcomplex & Dr. Motte – Wedance
Motte and I have been in close contact for a few years now with many great conversations and moments together. When Motte asked me if I would like to go into the studio with him I immediately said yes. ‘Wedance’ was the first track we finished. The synthline is very high recognisable and works incredibly well on the dancefloor. A real high energy track.
DJ Dextro – Pontus
I am a big fan of DJ Dextro’s latest releases. Again it features a super catchy synthline in combination with deep rolling drums. I have been playing this track for a few weeks and it works everywhere.
Truncate – User 7 (Drumcell Remix)
One of the best remixes that came out so far this year. The whole EP from Truncate is incredibly strong and on the legendary label CLR imprint of Chris Liebing. The drums build up more and more and pull you into a spell until the signal sound really goes off. A real hands up moment on the dancefloor.
Simon Stiglmeier – Dancy
Label: Second State
This track came out on Pan-Pot’s Second State and it’s on a various artists EP. The vocal is super catchy and the bassline is nice and lively. This track is also a real highlight in my sets.
Kashpitzky – I Demand
Label: Be As One
A real whirlwind this tune. With its broken beat it rolls forward hard, until a vocal comes in from behind and almost runs through the whole track with small breaks. It’s very hypnotic but at the same time brings quite a high energy.
