Festival season is at it's peak right now and the biggest tracks of the summer are making their way to your eager ears. One artist who is making waves this summer is Dannic, a Dutch progressive house DJ and producer who has become one of the biggest names in the industry. He recently launched his label 'Fonk Recordings', home to music that fits his trademark funky big-room sound, and is playing on some of the biggest stages in the world. Now with an imprint to call his own, Dannic is keen for the label to act as a platform for untapped talent.
Magnetic Magazine wanted to get a better idea of what's on Dannic's radar this year as there is a plethora of new music hitting the airwaves. We think you'll be pleasantly surprised to hear what he's been bumping. Check out the full chart below.
Dannic feat. Aïrto - Light The Sky
"Love Airto’s stripped- down version of the track and wanted to add my Dannic flavor to it. Instead of sending everyone jumping up and down this is more of a hands-in- the-air vibe with huge melodies and a great top-line."
Dannic - 'Blaze'
"My latest release on Revealed Recordings that has this winding build-up and militant beat to draw out the tension before the drop, gets everyone ready to rave!"
3LAU - 'Is It Love (Arty Remix)'
"Another great rework from Arty, amazing vocal and simple – but effective - production that doesn’t overbear the original. Can’t wait to blast this one."
Bastille - 'Good Grief (Don Diablo Remix)'
"Bastille make such great pop tunes, add Don Diablo working his magic on this and you’re onto a winner!"
Chace & Yellow Claw - 'Stranger'
"Chase is only 17 which is crazy! He joins forces with Yellow Claw on this one for a deep-house cut, full of fat beats."
Holl & Rush - 'Lift Me Up'
"Loved this one and glad that everyone else is after hearing it on Hardwell On Air, too! The pitched-up female vocal reminds me of that old school sound with a fresh flavor."
Mako - 'Into The Sunset'
"Gorgeous melodies and a gentle vocal on this one with a future house twist that gives the crowd a chance to breathe and revel in the beauty."
Melsen - 'Feeling'
"‘Feeling’ is sounding huge across all my sets, out on Fedde Le Grand’s Flamingo Recordings! Such a good groove throughout the track and the diva-esque vocals – killer!"
Pessto - 'Masego'
"The latest track to drop on my label Fonk Recordings from Pessto! He’s a rising producer from a small town in Serbia that is bringing the funk but also has a no-holds barred approach to going in! Really glad to release this one on my label and hope you enjoy what else we have coming for Fonk Recordings in the future."
Dannic & Sick Individuals - 'Feel Your Love (DBSTF Remix)'
"DBSTF gave my collab with Sick Individuals a punch. Exploding beats, distorted break-downs and those melodic grooves I love!"
