Over the past few years, the Berlin based artist KlangKuenstler came stomping into the tech-house scene with such impact that everyone was forced to stand up and take notice. With a string of Top 10 hits and releases on coveted labels like Toolroom, Mother Recordings and Elrow, the German producer and DJ has quickly risen through the ranks to become one of the de jure artists at the top of his genre. As such, we thought it only right to bring him into the fold of Deeperfect for his next banging release!
Klangkuenstler brings his instantly recognisable aesthetic to Dance With Me and delivers a full power tech-house monster. His heavy jacking drum groove sets the pace and gets things off to a heaving start before a deep, pulsing sub joins in to support the energetic rhythm. Some dark techno open hats keep the mood focused and provide contrast against the hooky, soulful female vocal. Sparse synth stabs and restrained effects are used to punctuate at just the right moments and help the track to flow effortlessly from beginning to end.
Up on remix duty is Raffa FL who has been killing the game over the past few years with stand out releases on Avorte, Material, Criminal Hype and many more influential labels. While he keeps things tech-house and pushing, Raffa FL brings his own distinct flavour to the remix with edgier drums than the original and a deep and banging bassline. By using the vocal hook sparingly and introducing some intense bass stabs he is able to create a tension building roller coaster of sound that will be right at home in peak time sets across the globe.
