Netherlands newcomer Dannic, formerly known as DJ Funkadelic, has proven a formative favourite to rising hometown peer Hardwell’s Revealed imprint. First premiered at Copenhagen’s Sensation White by Hardwell himself last year, the final edit of their latest collaboration ‘Kontiki’ diverts some positive attention from the predictable realms of Dutch House upon two young contenders of a particularly meticulous calibre. Rife with euphoric melody and enigmatic synth-work, there is something inherently hallmark in the collective efforts of these long time industry peers. Where Hardwell’s accession to the ranks of DJ Mag’s top 100 DJ’s was an untimely victory for nation and industry alike, his sustained interest and increasingly impressive alliances alongside Dannic indicate that this is a Dutch producer of immaculate potential.
‘Kontiki’ is released soon via Revealed Recordings.
