DT634 – M.A.N.D.Y

On the platform of their aptly titled Get Physical label, M.A.N.D.Y. has achieved massive success in colluding to create music that simply makes bodies move. Their foot stamping, hair flying passion is the ultimate expression of a dance music phenomenon for many years.
Now as just Patrick continuing as M.A.N.D.Y he strives forward into 2019 which a packed schedule including the upcoming SXM Festival – which is making its return to the Caribbean Island of Saint Martin/Sint Maarten between March 13-17 2019.

What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
It´s an eclectic driving mix but hypnotic and chilled in the same time. Latino grooves combined with sophisticated Electronica from old and new records, including some special edits, plus new tracks from Get Physical and Kindisch of course.
What’s the best gig you’ve played recently?
I was just coming back from an exiting South- and Latin America tour with sixteen gigs in Ecuador, Colombia, Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, Panama and Mexico. Most of the gigs were massive, and packed with euphoric energy. I love to play there.
What have you got coming up?
I am just finishing a new EP together with Jo Ke, the singer of Feathered Sun. It´s deep spiritual house. And I am doing a new project with Dubspeeka, which is soulful deep Techno. I did a remix for an old Layo & Bushwacka classic track which was just released together with mixes from Sasha and Carl Cox on Ultra and I will be on US tour right after SXM Festival, including the Ultra Festival after the Winter Music Conference in Miami. I summer I will start a new event series at intimate venues, all night long.
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
