Traxx 004: Da Funk - Roasted (incl. Jon Silva & The Mulder remixes) exclusive on Beatport

traxx_004_reflect
We took quite a break on Traxx, but here we come with our next release. And it was worth waiting for it!

Traxx 004 comes from Switzerland's Da Funk who runs the renowned Acryl Music label and gained quite some attention with his productions and remix works recently. Da Funk has been putting out original tunes on Forensic, Plastic City, Pesto and, of course, his very own Acryl Music. His tunes got licensed to a bunch of hi class compilations such as Café del Mar and his productions and DJ mixes are a staple of radio stations such as Ibiza Sonica, Frisky Radio or Ibiza Global Radio. He was also our guest on the PestoMix radio show on danceradio.gr on 20th July 2008 (download available here soon).

If you're familiar with our catalogue, you might have noticed that Da Funk has already released his amazing "Electronic Love" via our smashing compilation "2.0 - The Next Generation Of Pesto Artists" and we also had him as a remixer for our Pesto 005 release. So it was just a matter of time until Da Funk would be present on our Traxx sublabel to contribute a pure summer tune, full of deepness, groove and soul - exactly what you'd expect from a bangin' Da Funk production.

Support comes from our in house artists Jon Silva and The Mulder who are both well known guests on the global download charts and playlists to round up this diverse and arse-kicking release. No doubt - Traxx is back!!!
