- Marc DePulse & Darin Epsilon – Aerodyne (Original Mix)
- Darin Epsilon – Sonoran (Original Mix)
The 70th release on Perspectives Digital features a typically high-profile release by label head and internationally renowned DJ star, Darin Epsilon, together with prolific German producer, blogger and journalist Marc DePulse.
Constantly at the vanguard and cutting-edge development of Progressive House and Melodic House & Techno, Darin Epsilon’s track record is second to none. With over 350 production credits to his name and nearly 200 on his own Perspectives Digital, he’s a global phenomenon with the industry credentials to back up such a title. An award-winning DJ and producer, recognized by Beatport and John Digweed, Darin has witnessed numerous headline tours and festival appearances across every continent with music signed to the industry’s best labels such as Katermukke, Einmusika, Sudbeat, Renaissance, and Global Underground, to name but a few.
Joining forces with German maestro Marcel Sterling, better known as Marc DePulse, the Leipzig based artist has over two decades experience and 300+ releases to his name with a mantra to make “music to remember”. An internationally established DJ with a plethora of performances from Istanbul and Beirut to Berlin and Dubai, DePulse’s production work has seen him feature on the likes of Katermukke, Einmusika, Selador, Parquet, Sincopat, and dozens more. Interestingly enough, when he’s not busy producing music or rocking the DJ booth, Marc writes a monthly column in FAZE Mag, Germany’s biggest and most respected publication for electronic dance music.
First joining forces on the “Penrose Lullaby EP” for Katermukke, the lead track “Anamorphosis” instantly made waves and was featured in Spotify’s Electronic Rising playlist. The collaboration has been played over 150,000 times on the platform since March 2019. Combining their creative talents once more, “Aerodyne” is an immaculately crafted offering that sparkles with its deep kick, layered clap, and bassline groove. Building with ease, sumptuously textured pads swirl across the stereo spectrum and a central arpeggio motif provides a solid melodic anchor for the plethora of creative ideas. Continuing in relentless fashion beyond the shimmering breakdown, the production quality epitomizes a 24-carat gem.
Already finding success in his DJ sets during last summer’s extensive tour through Latin American, “Sonoran” finds Darin Epsilon on brilliant solo production duties. The track is full of the trademark production detail that has always set him apart from his peers. A ticking and clicking percussive groove flutters around a metronomic kick while a perfectly programmed bassline adds swing and head-shaking character. Melodic elements come courtesy of a rising arpeggio sequence and strong chord progression before a beautifully twinkling and emotive sequence appears during the stripped-back breakdown. Going on to join forces with the vibrant rhythmic components of earlier phases, the result is a delicate and flawless track that is certain to find “Sonoran” a legion of fans.
Stellar Fountain is a hungarian electronic music label, established in 2011 by Erich Von Kollar, MiraculuM (Gyorgy Udvardy) and Greyloop (Gergo NÃ©meth). In the last few years they became a massive, strong brand in the underground progressive house-scene, presenting overall 600 releases plus 50 compilations including very well known names like Cid Inc, Deepfunk, Juan Deminicis, Derek Howell, Paul Hazendonk, Silinder, Marcelo Vasami, Dmitry Molosh or Robert R. Hardy. With more than 210 TOP100 Proghouse releases, 35 TOP100 Proghouse tracks and more than 90 weekly official chartings on Beatport we can easily declare that Stellar Fountain can not be avoided when you’re looking for fresh high-quality progressive sounds. Amongst the TOP100 Progressive House label worldwide and clear number 1 in Hungary, you can expect more legends, hot tastemakers and upcoming talents in their following releases in 2019.
The third and final single from our forthcoming “The Midnight Remixed 02” album showcases a remix from PROFF, the one and only artist featured on this release to have also appeared on the first installment of the ‘Remixed’ series. More specifically, PROFF’s interpretation of The Midnight’s “Days Of Thunder” (under his Soultorque guise) proved to be a standout from the last edition, so it seemed well-advised to give the Russian phenom an opportunity to reinterpret one of The Midnight’s equally beloved, but more recent productions. The result, a “Dub” take on The Midnight’s “Kids,” is an exceedingly groovy and suspenseful progressive house anthem that pays homage to the late-night, noir-influenced side of The Midnight’s songwriting.
Mike Williams Discusses Tiësto Collab
Last Friday, “I Want You” from Tiësto and Mike Williams was released on Musical Freedom. Mike joined us to discuss how the two came to work together, their intentions with the track, and some of the special shows where he’s gotten to share the stage with Tiësto.
How did you come to collaborate with Tiësto on this “I Want You”?
Tiësto and I met each other during Amsterdam Dance Event last year. We had a nice talk and afterwards I sent him some of my music. He liked it so after a couple of months we came up with the idea to start on a collab. It was really fun to work with him!
What was the inspiration for “I Want You”? What was the production process like?
We really tried to make a melodic but still groovy track, something we both could play in our sets. Eventually we ended up at version 21 of “I Want You,” which in our opinion had the best sound. Of course Tiësto tours a lot so we weren’t able to finish it in a short time, but two weeks before UMF in Miami “I Want You” was ready to be played!
You’ve had the chance to play some shows with Tiësto and appear on stage with him at some of the world’s biggest festivals. Do you have a favorite experience or show you’ve done with him?
For me it really was a dream come true! At first, when I heard I would go on stage with Tiësto at UMF, I didn’t believe it haha! Of course joining him on stage at Ultra and Tomorrowland was amazing, but also the shows we did together in Las Vegas and Bulgaria were so intense! I’ll never forget those!
What’s the biggest thing you’ve learned from him production wise? How about outside of the studio?
Production wise, I learned from him that you should never give up on a project too soon. I have the tendency to stop working on a project when I’ve lost my motivation, and he told me to just keep going and eventually it will work out! Outside of the studio he taught me a lot about the tour life of a DJ and how to build up your sets with different kinds of audiences.
The track already boasts some big name artist support like many of your other tracks. Are there any artists playing your music that you are surprised by or get particularly excited about?
It’s amazing to see so many big DJs support my tracks. A couple of weeks ago I heard that David Guetta and Steve Aoki also played my track “Sweet & Sour.” That was unbelievable to hear!
What does the rest of the year hold in store for you?
I have a lot of new tracks coming up! A new remix, a new solo track and a cool collab. I’m doing some really cool shows as well and of course ADE is gonna be awesome!
