The forTunea label jumps out with its latest vinyl release, the deep and techy “Don’t Go” from Vienna-based DJ/producer Anatol. Originally from Munich, the recently relocated Anatol keeps a busy DJ schedule throughout the city and beyond, and has previously released and remixed for the likes of Hungarian Hot Wax, Tulipe Records, and Plus Recordings.
“Don’t Go” wastes no time in getting right down to business, deftly mixing a snapping rhythm and a deliriously bouncing bass line, and adding loads of builds and strategically placed samples. The cut is laser-focused on the dance floor, sure to shake nightclub speakers into submission. On the b-side, Precious K — one half of Janefondas — and Secret Crunch boss Roman Rauch team up for a cool mid-tempo house remix. The ominous, laid-back vibe leads to mesmerizing synth arpeggiations that’ll send the after-hours crowd into a groovy dream state.
Anatol’s “Don’t Go” 12” will be limited to 300 copies.
