LABELS: Tronic, Filth on Acid
People are noisy, cheerful, capricious. And, clearly: dancefloor-orientated.
“A mélange of those influences makes the very heart of my sound”, says Cologne-based producer Patrik Berg.
Experimental. Innovative. Supposed to suck all those people right onto the dancefloor and make them effing move till their feet bleed. What else? Pure euphoria.
Patrik Berg began producing few years ago, launching releases on labels like Tronic, Alleanza, Transmit or Filth on Acid.
“Music is like food to me: Elementary. I never get satisfied”.
Be prepared. There’s gonna be more.
