New year, same shared love for all things great. Magnetic and Halcyon SF are back in action with a new season of parties for you bay-area people, kicking things off with Dennis Cruz. Ahead of our first hedonistic outing together, we sat down with Dennis for a quick catch up, and a hint of what's in store for us.
Dennis, your track with Martina Camargo "El Sueno" set dance floors afire around the world this summer! What was the inspiration for that fire track? How did you come to work with Martina?
I heard the vocal from martina before and I couldn’t resist to contact her to do this collaboration!
You also released "The Sun", another summertime, feel good, floor-filler with Halcyon residents, Chus & Ceballos.
How long have you been collaborating with Los Tios?
It was an honor for me to make this track with them, I’ve been working 3 years with stereo productions.
We love those guys! We often see you on Stereo Production line-ups around the world. Any fun stories to share about hanging with those two?
There are a lot of funny stories so it is difficult to choose just one, maybe the last stereo Christmas party, we always had a lot of fun when we are together!
We love that you are always smiling and appear to be having a great time every time we see you! To what do you attribute this?
Thank you I truly am! I really love my job so I can’t be sad doing what I love most.
