Perspectives Digital is pleased to present our first ever Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) Sampler. The annual Dutch convention has long been a testing ground for the upcoming fall season’s biggest records. Highlighting the sampler are new productions from Marc Poppcke, JimiJ, and Namatjira, as well as Darin Epsilon’s much anticipated single ‘Valencia’.
Leading the sampler is Marc Poppcke’s brand new remix of Dutch producer Alessandro Diga’s ‘End of This Road’. Marc had a fabulous 2013 with releases on Sasha’s Last Night on Earth and Parquet Recordings. This is the German producer’s first appearance on Perspectives and his unique tech house sound has lent itself quite well to Alessandro’s contemporary progressive grooves. Originally released in February of 2012, Marc has reinvented ‘End of This Road’ with a tight framework that incorporates many of the tantalizing musical themes from the original. Complementing the warm groove are a selection of spacey sounds and smooth electronic swells that are sure to have your full attention.
As 2013 quickly approaches its fourth quarter, Perspectives label owner Darin Epsilon has been increasingly busy. His truly global DJ schedule, in conjunction with his production work on Sudbeat, Hope Recordings, and Flow Vinyl have propelled the US producer to new heights this year. The second track on the sampler is his much sought after ‘Valencia’. There has been considerable buzz surrounding this production since it aired on Hernan Cattaneo’s Delta FM radio show. It’s available here for the first time with a full release forthcoming on Perspectives featuring Jamie Stevens and Dousk remixes.
Australian producer JimiJ’s releases on Armada and Electronic Elements have been making their mark with both Armin van Buuren and Paul van Dyk this year. JimiJ makes his debut on Perspectives with his latest studio production entitled ‘Ephemera’. Fans of Guy J should be delighted with this one as the Aussie’s blend of deep tech house grooves and elegant harmonic themes will really strike a chord on the dancefloor.
The final track on the sampler sees another exciting artist debut on Perspectives. Dutch producer Namatjira has been a fixture of Holland’s electronic music underground for the last ten years. Working under several aliases, he’s found much success with appearances on Lowbit Records, Crossfrontier Audio, and Proton’s Particles. ‘Liquid Madness’ is one of the Dutch producer’s finest musical creations to date. Backed by a deep and sultry groove, the interwoven melodies, angelic vocal stabs, and delicate textures work in perfect harmony for what results in an exquisite journey to close the sampler out.
