DHA Mix #364 By Dennis Ferrer

Dennis Ferrer has been at the forefront of electronic music for well over 15 years now, transitioning between styles and influences while always keeping it interesting for club-goers and purists alike. Whether it was Techno & Ambient in the 90’s, Melodic House in the early 2000’s or reinventing himself over the past few years, Ferrer is now focused on a somewhat darker, more techno-influenced sound lately. This sound can be experienced in Amsterdam on 18 May as Dennis stops be De Marktkantine with Boris Werner and Makossa in tow. Anticipating this event, we’ve got an exclusive mix from Dennis just ...

DHA Profiles: Nasser Baker

I met Nasser Baker a couple of weeks ago on one of the first truly nice days of the Amsterdam season (which just happened to follow the day long national celebration that is Kingsday). Despite a mild touch of the post party blues, it was still the perfect day for a musical stroll through some of Amsterdam’s best record shops, and with one of the dance industry’s freshest faces. I knew a bit about Nasser beforehand, especially that he was the latest protege of Objektivity boss Dennis Ferrer, the dance music icon who can boast a similar title when referencing ... Read more

Premiere: Dennis Ferrer – Maniac 3000 (Original Mix)

Good things come to those who wait’… Especially to those who wait for the next original Dennis Ferrer release on his imprint, Objektivity. ‘Maniac 3000’ is the second anthemic single from Ferrer’s much anticipated upcoming album on Defected, ‘Paranoia Aftermath’, to drop early 2017. Tapping into his techno-roots for this one, Ferrer has managed to create an unlikely union between the groovy techno drums and the suspense of arpeggiated synth line. In Ferrer’s own words the track was ‘an attempt to go backwards, to move forward’. “Maniac 3000” is available 29 September via Objektivity Soundcloud Artist Page [soundcloud url=”https://soundcloud.com/deep-house-amsterdam/dennis-ferrer-maniac-3000-objektivity-1″ comments=”true” auto_play=”false” ...

Interview: Kölsch

Kölsch is a medium for the narration of Danish Native Rune Reilly Kölsch’ life through sonic soundscapes, laid out in melodic vignettes that read as a picture book to the formulation of the man behind the music. Together, these vignettes form a whole greater than the sum of its parts, a nostalgic, introspective voyage. Rune’s first voyage, captured in his critically acclaimed LP release, ‘1977’ signifies the year of his birth and draws inspiration from his culturally diverse upbringing. The ‘1977’ record itself was a dancefloor heavy output that proved the world-over the success and appeal of the melodic and emotional side to ...

To set forth the tradition, the organizers came up with a special winter version of the weekly event. Earlier editions have seen such artists as Joris Voorn, Dennis ... Read more

Mix #130 By Franck Roger

38-year-old French producer Franck Roger is a favoured crate digger and has a deep connection to the historic roots of house music. The first time he heard ‘Promised Land’ by Joe Smooth he became desperate to find out everything he could about house music. Too young to go out at his age back then, he found solace in visiting record shops in and outside his hometown Paris. A long-lasting relationship with the wax was initiated. Now, he says, he still lives in Paris and still buys up to 15 bits of vinyl a week. But these days, he’s actually the ... Read more
