DT758 – Hassler
HASSLER is another new moniker of Spanish titan COYU where the celebrated Catalan DJ and founder of Suara is willing to openly demonstrate his particular passion for house and fireproof disco sounds.
“I always have liked house and disco, but since I’m very focused on (hard) techno these days I decided to start a new project where being able to release whatever I want without the pressure of the (techno) scene. But the idea behind Hassler is not just to release house music but not follow the rules and release whatever I think it’s fun, groovy and make me dance. Mostly high tempo (132-136) house and disco but always mixed with other genres.
Trick is the perfect place for releasing my first Hassler release and developing my sound. Patrick Topping’s label is one of the few house labels that cross borders and try to be authentic. They don’t revisit the 80s and the 90s as many other labels do at this right moment, but create something fresh and unique.”
Hassler debuted with the exciting “Icke” EP on Patrick Topping’s red hot Trick label in 2020. A punchy and high energy pack perfectly designed to have people in raptures before exploding into peak time and innovative contemporary techno.

Tell us about your next EP?
My latest EP as Hassler on Trick had two very different tracks. Ogunhe is organic and groovy, it’s focused on the bassline. Cowbell 3000 is more futuristic and techy.
