Philipp Maier is what his mum and the inland revenue call him. One of our favourite tech-house beatsmiths is how we would describe him. Who lives in a house like this... [Ed. Stop making Through The Key Hole references] We mean who else would we be talking about other than Santé?
Moving to Berlin at 21 in pursuit of a career in music, the only hiccup during Phillip's career so far was not making it into university - but even this could be considered a good thing with the university's loss the music world's gain. After experiencing a studio internship, his career blossomed into a beautiful flower full of opportunity. Such opportunity available has seen Santé go on to DJ in Ibiza, work with some incredible names in music and of course, prepared him to release his debut LP "Current" which as readers of our pages can testify more than impressed
We've teamed up with our good friends at Toolroom Records, to bring you an exclusive first listen of Doorly's new collaboration with dance icon Todd Terry.
Taken from the first EP in a new series called Doorly & Friends, 'On A Mission (Doorly Re-Chunk)' offers pure, unadulterated house. Driving percussion, warped vocals, acidic undertones... everything you need to get the party started is there in abundance. The release is then completed by another collaboration, this time with DJ Pierre.
Doorly was over the moon at the chance to work with the likes of Terry: "They say you should never meet your Idols... Screw that!" he says. "If you’d have told me ten years ago that I would have some Todd Terry drums to collaborate with, I would have thought you were mental. If there’s one instrument or sound that's influenced me more than anything else, then it’s those raw, uncompromising drum sounds of his. You can’t beat those brave, distorted, chunky grooves. Todd Terry is easily one of my biggest musical influences and now a good mate."
It's time to get your Friday freak on and we have an exclusive premiere for you to get things in full flow in. As a follow up to his three track EP 'Pressure', Vanilla Ace has dropped his second EP to Italian house and techno label Go Deeva Records; and he has very kindly offered us the stream to share with you all!
Having recently teamed up with UK rising talent Barber for their official remix of Moon Boots 'Don't Ask Why', it only seemed right to get together and cook up this naughty two track EP.
'Freak' is set for release 20th October on Go Deeva Records.
