Here’s a track for the real clubs. Nothing to cater to the short attention span of the mainstream festival goers. Thankfully. It just rolls and rolls and rolls and oh my god I am so happy it stays on course.
A good, deep house track with just the right drive, that’s a balance act of the finest order. It should never pull all the straps, but remain a low profile, always groovy and above all, bucketloads of elegance. This track here has all that.

Here’s a progressive house track with a drive that is nothing short of spectacular. But it’s more than that. It’s a fantastic blend of eclectic opera vocals and a twisted mandolin(?) play.
