gizA djs – The Snake Charmer – Sincopat
This song belongs to Sincopat’s latest release. The first time was a couple of years ago and it was love at first sight, even though we had to wait until we could release it, it was definitely worth it. Its breakdown is an infinite crescendo that culminates in a perfect drop, definitely a magical track.

AFFKT – Rebost – Multinotes
Rebost is one of the energetic and special songs of my career, and it has just been released on Multinotes, a label I highly respect simplicity and perfection of shapes are the words that come to my mind when I think on it.

Breach – Jack (Jonathan Kaspar Extended Remix) – Defected
This is one of the best remixes I’ve discover lately, I actually love everything Jonathan Kaspar is doing but this dark and raw work is without a doubt something special.
Breach - Jack (Jonathan Kaspar Extended Remix)
The Organism – Ego (Doctor Dru Remix) – Organic tunes
Another winning remix, it is a clear example that simplicity sounding good usually gives good results, it is a track that is played well exactly because of the harmony and richness of the sound.

Kiko & Panthera – Burnout2 – Correspondant
This track is definitely an anthem, its piano chords full of intensity captivate you from the first listen and although repetitive, they totally surprise you with their unexpected harmonic changes. Undoubtedly a point and a part in your session.

PÔNGO – John Connor – Systematic
‘John Connor’ has a subtle but hypnotic melody, its breakdown makes you lose sense of time and space. It reminds me of progressive music from years ago but with a much more modern sound.
Fejka – Shades Of You (AFFKT remix) – Ki Records
Remixing for Fejká has been a big challenge, his music is so high quality and inspires me so much that I wanted to be up to it. I wanted to make a remix that was above styles and genres, with a groove between break and Techno, my idea was to hook the listener from the beginning to the end, a roller coaster of emotions that I hope will make you get lost inside your mind.

Shishi – I Start to Lose Control (Fango Remix) – Good Skills
Fango is one of my favourite artists, his bass lines are incredible. In this remix I really like the intro and his unexpected drop, and his organic sound that could sound like a band of musicians from another world.

AFFKT – Valent – Sincopat
‘Valent’ condenses a lot of me into one song, I had a very special feeling when I was making it and I think you feel when you listen to it. I think that his huge bass line, which at times becomes the main lead, is what most defines this intense and energetic song.

Dusky – Wildfire – Running Back
I think this track is the perfect ending for this chart, I play it many times to end my sessions because it leaves a very special taste in your mouth. A very dynamic track that makes you fly at times to put your feet back on the ground the next moment. Another timeless song that will not leave you cold.
