DT609 – Ferdinand Weber
The last few years have seen Munich-born artist Ferdinand Weber start to make a serious name for himself as a DJ and producer. His distinctive style is hard to pin down, but whether you call it deep, melodic or UK house, you can clearly feel his sound.
His debut single ‘What’ was released by Spinnin Deep, swiftly followed by his second, ‘Finally’, a collaboration with Jetqiue. Both tracks received support from the world’s biggest DJs and shot into the Top 10 of the Beatport House Chart. Remixes for artists Lemaitre, Blonde, LANY, XY Constant, Just Kiddin’ and house legend Fred Falke followed and helped to blossom his growing audience.
Support from some of the world’s leading tastemaker music blogs and channels, including Majestic Casual, Dancing Astronaut (Artist to Watch, 2015), Eton Messy, Thump and many more have seen Ferdinand’s play counts on Soundcloud, Spotify and Youtube skyrocket. Meanwhile, prime time players like Pete Tong, Danny Howard and The Magician have supported his music in their radio shows.
