New-school House champion Santé is back on Moon Harbour for the first time since 2016 with ‘Calypso Dream’ another of his fantastically edgy and essential productions.
Over the last decade, Avotre label boss Philipp Maier aka Santé has defined a new house sound that is rock solid and built on big bass and rolling drums. He rarely steps away from this own well-regarded label, but in the past has remixed Ninetoes and Marco Faraone on Moon Harbour. His refined sound palette constantly evolves but always remains firmly focussed on the groove.
This superb new offering ‘Calypso Dream’ has a sunny vibe thanks to the fluttering toms and big, expressive steel drums. They are laid over chunky kicks and grinding bass to make for a roomy track filled with organic feelings and tropical colours. After a playful breakdown, the tune drops again and will make an indelible mark on indoor and outdoor parties alike.
Santé shows a more playful side to his sound here, and it will please legions of fans old and new.
