Depeche Mode – Martyr (Booka Shade Remix) – Mute

Depeche Mode has a long catalog of remixes, however the Booka Shade remix of Martyr is probably one of my favorites + I recently signed a track to Booka Shades Blaufield label which will see the light of day sometime soon.

Oliver Mandic – Kreni Kroz Vene – City Records

I’ve been spending time lately getting to know Sarajevo, there are a number of great venues/events Silver Smoke, Sound Beyond, Garden of Dreams – I’ve been learning more about the 1980s new wave / synth pop sound that the former Yugoslav artists were on the forefront of globally at the time.

Talal Hakim – In The Air – Family Piknik

This track took about 2 years to release as it was first originally going to a festival groups forthcoming label in north america but circumstances did not align so it went with Family Piknik which was a great move – am glad when a song still sounds interesting years later.

In The Air (Short Edit)

Talal Hakim – Remy – JOOF

John 00 Fleming / JOOF took more chances on my music than most in terms of risking a sound that doesnt fit a specific genre, am grateful + this track ended up being my single most playlisted track by 5 beatport editorial charts. 2 EP’s are coming on JOOF in 2024 including 1 this month Nightcall/Skenderija.
