„Zen Mode Kicking“ by Westbam
Germany’s Westbam is an electronic music pioneer with iconic status. He was a regular DJ on the Loveparade since its very first edition in 1989 and co-producing the famous anthems with Dr. Motte like “Sunshine“, “Music Is The Key“ and more.
Releasing on labels ranging from mau5trap and Toolroom Records to his own legendary Low Spirit Recordings, he has also collaborated with other legends such as MOGUAI.
His track „Zen Mode Kickin“ has sub-heavy bass throbs and urban vocals layered with stripped back percussion and eerie synth textures. Unique, chic, and quirky, it has a dark house feel with techy undertones.
The music video will be premiered on our YouTube channel in early June, 2022.
„Black Sesame“ by Michael Klein
Michael Klein is a German artist who has made a splash on Pan-Pot’s Second State in addition to other labels such as Suara and Sven Väth’s Cocoon. His track „Black Sesame“ blends hitting industrial textures with a pulsating acid-line and hard-hitting percussion to create a raw groove with relentless energy.
„Hellcat“ by Drumcomplex & Rakom
Drumcomplex increased his reach and visibility extremely, by enlightening venues and clubs around the world with his pounding productions and distinct choice for techno, with a grooving twist. His tracks have been released on labels ranging from Carl Cox‘s Intec to Eats Everything‘s EI8HT.
He invited the winner of his remix contest for the bespoke track “Atomic”, young talent Rakom, to co-produce the track “Hellcat”, as their contribution for RTP. Hellcat centers around the menacing tension of an arpeggiated synth line that’s cut and manipulated with filters and others effects to cause maximum impact on the dance floor while the pounding kick drum hammers home the fist-pumping groove.
