How does it feel to have a track considered as one of the 30 best tracks release in 2017 by Defined Music?
It was a big surprise for me that my track ‘Dope’ was considered as one of 30 best tracks release in 2017 by Defined Music. Defined Music is a very productive and selective label and releasing tons of the most groovy and actual tech house, many bright artists, so I am very happy to be a tiny part of this incredible mechanism.
