#01 Good Guy Mikesh – Year Of The Horse | Riotvan | Out now |
Whenever Good Guy Mikesh drops new material on Riotvan, you’d better prick up your ears. Even though it’s been a while already, his last Riotvan release „No Other“ in collaboration with Filburt still makes our ears ring as one of the most unchallengeable house hymns of the last years. The current EP admittedly triggers the craving for sing-alongs a bit less. Instead, it formulates a self-confident outline of a very own electrified and blurred conception of the term house in all kinds of shades.
Good Guy Mikesh – Power Plant (Original Mix)
