What have you been up to lately?
“It’s quite a special year for me, as I’ll be releasing my debut album ‘Sunrise’ in October. This has been a lifelong wish and ambition for me, so it feels VERY special to finally complete it. All the album’s tracks are finished, I’m currently lining things up with Spinnin’ Records for the official release. The first single ‘YES’ comes out today (Thursday 17 August), and features none other than Akon! A real honor to be working with him, and I believe the record we’ve made perfectly represents the upcoming album.”
What did you have in mind for this Guest Mix?
“For this mix, I tried to grab the diversity you can also hear on my upcoming album. I like the groove, but also love to work up great chords and hooks, combined with strong vocal parts. So that’s what you hear in this mix, my trademark sound including some new, upcoming records – of course ‘YES’ is also in there. Hope you like it, enjoy!”
