Belgian producer Jerro makes his Anjunadeep debut on a gorgeous new single called “Tunnel Vision”. Featuring crisp, hypnotic production topped by dreamy vocals from Los Angeles artist Kauf, the track officially arrives with an accompanying music video to match. “Tunnel Vision” also comes equipped with an official remix from critically-acclaimed producer Durante who offers up a melodic twist on the original.
Jerro explains, “It’s actually pretty funny how this track came about…I had a long-night out at the club, and came home feeling extra ‘inspired.’ So, I started messing around on FL Studio. Woke up the next morning, and saw that I started a track the night before at 5:47am? So, I had a listen, and I actually quite liked it haha…and that’s how ‘Tunnel Vision’ was born.”
“Now that it is finished up, I’m really excited to showcase a different style of music, as this track isn’t like any of my previous releases. It is also my first time working with an original vocal, which Kauf really nailed. It ended up being my most ambitious track to date.”
Jerro’s fusion of melodic house and downtempo sounds originally broke through with his debut The Fool EP via Lane 8’s This Never Happened label. After only six months, The Fool saw strong support from global tastemakers as “Lake Nivu” became the most played song on SiriusXM Chill throughout September 2019, also laying the groundwork for his sophomore Pantheon EP via This Never Happened. Now in the third chapter of his career backed by Anjunadeep, he carries serious momentum into “Tunnel Vision” and beyond.
As for Durante, he broke out via OWSLA’s Nest subsidiary in 2013 and quickly received acclaimed from the likes of VICE and Billboard Dance, going on to establish himself as a force within the house music scene. Recently releasing original tunes via Amtrac’s OPENERS and Lubelski’s Percomaniacs, his “Tunnel Vision” remix is yet another exciting addition to an ever-prolific catalogue.
German multi-instrumentalist and producer, The Micronaut has made a name for himself through his richly textured and enthusiastic compositions. His 2016 album, “Forms” has been described as a true melting pot of sounds and it caught the attention of the electronic music scene with its very playful and original amalgamation of rhythms and samples. This summer, The Micronaut releases Olympia (Summer Games) – an album which continues to draw on his elaborate production style as well as on the values of camaraderie and solidarity of the Olympic Games, despite this year’s postponement of the event.
The album’s first single, Swimming is out today. The track moves from broken bass rhythms to catchy melodies to vocal samples in just a few bars, giving birth to a sort of collage-based genre of music.
Summer Games’ tracks are named after Olympic sports – pole vault, archery and swimming are just some examples of the 12 modalities chosen by the artist. “For this album I chose Olympia as theme, because apart from competition, it’s also about a movement of peace, where the focus is on people, no matter what nation. The Summer Games are coming now, the Winter Games will follow,” says the producer. In the spirit of games, the music is generally high-spirited and upbeat, with many tracks being perfectly fitted for the dance floor. The compositions move from broken bass rhythms to catchy melodies to vocal samples and guitars in just a few bars, making the overall listening experience seem like a fantastic rollercoaster ride, “I would always describe my music as very lively, expressive, dramatic, sometimes calm, sometimes powerful,” says The Micronaut, “I think it is music that fires the imagination.”
The ride is eclectic, but far from chaotic; transitions are fluid, the momentum uninterrupted and the direction cohesive. Behind the music’s energetic flow are sophisticated arrangements and quasiscientific constructions which crush stylistic boundaries and give birth to a new collage-based genre of music. The music is all the more impressive considering that every sound contained therein is crafted by The Micronaut himself, who has been called a one-man-orchestra for exactly that reason. At times, Summer Games veers towards electro-pop, at other times it is inspired by old-school hip-hop, and at other times still, it climaxes and explodes in IDM, but through all the commotion what is clear is that The Micronaut is an avid music lover, collecting ideas and inspirations far and wide, and translating them through his own prism of emotions, “Music must always be a journey, with ups and downs, with fears and with happiness. Making music is always an expression and somehow also a processing of experiences.”

“’Never’ was mainly inspired by so-called ‘Intelligent Dance Music’ from the mid-’90s, and it went on to become one of my favourite tracks on this album. Orbital were such a formative and pioneering force in this scene and have been a huge influence on my sound. To have them remix one of my tracks is a massive honour for me.

Taken from the album ‘Colure’, released 24 July on Counter Records:
RY X and Frank Wiedemann reunite as Howling to present “Colure”, the sophomore full-length record from their joint musical enterprise. RY X, solo alternative artist and member of The Acid, and Frank, one half of Âme, bring fans a bigger, sharper follow-up to their debut, “Sacred Ground”. On “Colure”, the Berlin-based Wiedemann and Los Angeles-based RY X conjure transcendent creations out of their contrasting musical backgrounds and environments. The album is assuredly dualistic: electronic and acoustic sounds sit comfortably side-by-side, and big melodic hooks are laced into hypnotic club productions.
