Nils Hoffmann's "Balloons" are flying high
As it is, you don’t usually hear something like this coming from a 16-year old! Berlin-based Nils Hoffmann broke down the doors of the electronic music scene with his “Balloons” and now it’s time to see who’s in and supporting this young fellow and his astonishing productions.
Nils Hoffmann reworked the original with a brand new mix of „Balloons“ reflecting his idea of emotional deep house music with a retro feel, a pure trademark of Nils due to his vintage influences, casting a warm shine over the track. Chugging bass and a straightforward percussion track hold the mix up as it builds with is musically inclined structure and feel, setting an unmistakable and catchy groove.
Now, you all know Martin Roth for his pop-infused genre blenders, catching the ears of a very diverse selection of fans around the world. He delivers a fantastic epic remix following his own hit record „Beautiful Life“. Martin starts out the mix low, opting to build the track ambience slowly paired with a 4/4 kick. From there he adds various elements to thicken the vibe, turning gears and throwing in a bass element with a very analogue feel, matching the vintage style set by Nils. Martin sets a bold mood here, and tops it with a break perfect for the deepest late night dance floors.
AKA AKA & Thalstroem team up to pump up the energy levels. Straight out of the gate with kicks and vocal cuts - this is the 'pick me up' you were waiting for. Chord-play creeps in next to the synth and shows us the way to the floor. It's a big mix, and a secret winter hit.
