Swiss producer Da Funk, aka Daniel Kneubühler, has been making electronic music for over 15 years, and has just marked his return to Anjunadeep with a double hit of melodic house goodness. The dreamy laidback cruise that is "Smug" contrasts brilliantly with the more energised "Don't Let Go", packed with rich interlocking melodies and a subtle piano motif.
To celebrate Da Funk's return to Anjunadeep he took some time out of the studio to put together this mix for us, featuring "Don't Let Go" along with tracks from the likes of Justin Martin and Kyodai, and Anjuna artists Beckwith and Andrew Bayer.
We also caught up with Daniel for an Interview about the mix, his EP, his influences, and his dream party.
Producing electronic music since 1997, Switzerland's Daniel Kneubühler aka Da Funk makes his first return to the label since "Anjunadeep 03"'s "Weekend Rubdown" with this double hit of deep melodic house goodness.
A dreamy laid-back cruise through washing pads, warm melodies and blissful bleeps, "Smug" is a cult ID from James Grant's Anjunadeep edition back in February. An instant gem, its release puts an end to months of forum speculation with they track also finding support on Above & Beyond's Group Therapy.
A slightly more energised affair, "Don't Let Go" is equally memorable with rich interlocking melodies, a hooky vocal and a beautiful, subtle piano motif that appears throughout.
