Olaf Stuut - Spirograph (Aparde Remix)
We include here a classic on Traum by Olaf Stuut we released in 2015. Olaf Stuut is a versatile person playing multiple instruments and who draws inspiration from a wide spectrum of genres like jazz, funk and rock music. Berlin’s Aparde remixed "Spirograph" and has removed all funky irritation to replace it with a soothing almost ambient feel that moves beat wise on a cats paw, cautiously but with continuity towards a place that we have never seen and which he will open up for a split second. The longer the track runs the more addictive it gets! This is slo-mo sexiness at its best.

Ron Flatter - Shelby
Following "Mantequilla" Ron Flatter wrote a superb euphoric and joyous anthem of a song again with "Shelby" in 2016. "Shelby" can carry you on hands but can also provide shelter.

The collective spirit and positiveness are the key and the heart of this track and we can see "Shelby" working wonders on open airs and clubs around the world.
