With Stas Drive having new music out now on 238W Inc. and Soundteller Records, we take a look at his favourite tracks of the moment in the latest edition of What’s In Your Box?
01. KatrinKa – About Love (Original Mix) [Chapter 24]
I just can say it’s something really about love… One of the most striking beautiful and sensual tracks that I’ve heard lately! It delivers me the association with something sensual, melancholic and dreamy at the same time. Chic track that i regularly include in my sets.
02. Jonas Saalbach – Atar [Moodmusic]
Another track that blows up all my most sincere and good feelings. Generally Jonas never ceases to surprise me, more and more beauty from track to track. Each his project has a very special sound and always attracts my finicky to music attention. ‘Atar’ is a good example of it
03. Mike Griego – Idioglossia (Bog Remix) [microCastle]
I could not pass up this fantastic track which don’t cease to pump dancefloors in almost every my set. We’re close friends with Mike and he once shared with me the original mix of ‘Idioglossia’ I’ve played it many times and included in a variety podcasts until appeared remix from Bog and it blew my mind. In my opinion this is one of best his (Bog) works. On a similar hypnotic atmospheric sound i grew up the last 15-20 years… Yeah, it’s really true. Definitely this is a long-playing remix.
04. Guy Mantzur – Trees Of Eden (Original Mix) [Diynamic]
Trees Of Eden – one of my favorite tracks this year! I don’t think for someone might be surprise by my delight from the music of Guy Mantzur like one of my favourite artists. Thousands of people got a great inspiration and pleasure of his magical sound, and I am one of those … Moreover, given all purity, sincerity and goodness of Guy as a person in real life (and agree with this completely all who know him personally) I think ‘Trees Of Eden’ is reflected temperament of Guy Mantzur – very kind, gentle and positive track with his dynamic special groove and massive rhythm. Of course the track is a little different from his previous melancholic and dreamy emotional sound. But this track shows us – everything is actuated very well: and for parties in top European/ American underground clubs and for big (main room) raves in the same time. Just love it!
05. Datametrik – Eros (Original Mix) [Selador]
Recently i discovered this new name on the scene, and instantly fell in love with the sound of these guys. Very interesting and impressive mix of modern electronica, techno and tech house… The quality of sound design and effects like i love usually. The last month and a half you can often hear this work in my sets. Great track, recommend it to everybody!
06. Marc Poppcke – Ablaze (Original Mix) [Crossfrontier Audio]
If you’re a frequenter of nightclubs and a cool night event or you like loud home party with pool or you like large electronic music festivals or maybe you love the privacy with driving your own car and you’re a fan of fast driving, or you like walking on a bustling city with headphones in ears or you love to travel and enjoy the sunsets, the beautiful scenery and dive into your own inner world, then this track is for you! One of my favorite tracks of Marc, which i playing for a long time. High-quality
07. Abell – Flight Mode (Just Her Remix) [Constant Circles]
Just Her inspire me mainly in each new release. Very interesting own sound stands out from the vast amount of production in the underground electronic dance scene. Deft combination of the elements new school of techno and deep house music, as well as analog electronics make her music special. This remix i love to play recently due to its pulsating hypnotic shades and slightly psychedelic vibe. And of course I love the groove here! Perfect modern stuff for the dancefloor
08. Eagles & Butterflies – Sun [Bedrock]
Another masterpiece from Eagles & Butterflies. This track reminds me the time of the beginning of 2000s, the peak of Bedrock and Global Underground series – the same crystal clear progressive techno and house when the world dancefloors exploded at the seams under the sets of John Digweed and Sasha. At least the first time I heard this music from them and inspired by their creative experiments i appeared the name Stas Drive.:-) The track “Sun” like and whole EP include enticing hypnotic arpeggio throughout the entire track and relaxed easy energy of techno/ or even tech house involves it perfect mood. Great stuff!
09. Alex Niggemann – Siyawa (Original Mix) [LNOE]
If you like goosebumps – then you are not wrong 🙂 Another one of my favorite producers Alex Niggemanna once again demonstrates his talent and skill to all the fans, as the so-called “ethereal” melodic techno, as and for the lovers of powerful dramatic tech house.. Qualitative organic sound for large dancefloors and festivals. Personally I find this work 10/10. Be sure to listen to all those who have not listened to it!
10. Jesse Oliver – All Is (Stas Drive Remix) [238W Inc.]
Really glad to be on board of 238W. John Johnson sent me the original mix of ‘All Is’ by young Finnish producer Jesse Oliver and i was glad to remixing it. As result there is two absolutely different organic versions. Combining techno, electronica and progressive elements i decided to stop for something that can characterize my inner state at the moment. This sound i present lately and i will be happy to develop it further. Stay tuned
