Animal Trainer‘s brand of ‘slow rave’ has captured the imaginations of countless electronic music lovers all over the world since their inception as a duo.

Driven by a passion for the music and an insatiable appetite for the party, the Zurich based artists made their name through a series of parties called Rakete, which still takes place at the city’s infamous Hive club, while releasing on a slew of labels like Defected, mobilee, Einmusika, Katermukke, and more. Of course, the duo has also appeared at gigs around the world, everywhere from Robert Johnson to Studio 80 to D-Edge.

On 5 October, Animal Trainer releases via Steve Bug’s Poker Flat imprint with their “Rayaan” EP, a two-track package that perfectly encapsulation of their craft. Here, with the release available next week, the duo bring this exclusive mix to celebrate the occasion.

“Rayann” EP is available 5 October on Poker Flat Recordings
