UV Podcast 042 – Steffen Bennemann

Words by Steffen Bennemann: I put a lot of thought in this mix. Not so much before recording it more like after it. The prequel is quite short: I knew I had to record a new mix and I knew I wanted to do something ambient. I went to the DJ studio at Conne Island...

“The five track EP channels gorgeous, glassy synths and 80s hints with varying tempos to achieve a nicely varied package. Highlights for me are the opening “Disaster” which has a lovely pace and energy to it, and also the closing “Never Look Back” which is a lazy yet captivating house number….” Read on here.
