Sonickraft joins the Spotlight Mix Series
Sonickraft have continued their rise in the last few years with a host of stand out EP’s.
The duo this year released ‘Flashbacks’ with Sonny Fodera on Solotoko. The track reached the top 5 of on the Beatport charts and has already hit over 5 million streams. The track gained massive support from the likes of Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1 as well as support from the likes of Claptone, Jauz & Tchami in their own radio shows. The lads also released ‘Arrival’ on Solotoko, a wicked crazy synth lead track testing the borders between House & Techno.
Towards the end of 2020, Sonickraft teamed up with Dutch artist Keizer Jelle on the massive track ‘Six Four’ which received support from Hardwell and was continues to be championed on Spotify’s own UK House Music playlist to name a few. Sonickraft have also received regular Playlist support from Ministry Of Sound, Elrow, Tomorrowland, Roger Sanchez, Steve Aoki as well as continuous Editorial support from Spotify.

Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
Ravey and Energetic! perfect for Car journey’s and home workouts!
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
Tough one! We’re a big fan of Brown Vox’s stuff at the moment, he’s making experimental Tech House that’s real out of the box stuff. But we think Kai Shibata’s track ‘I Want’ would probably get our vote, the energy on that build up with that sax drop would definitely get the crowd going!
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
To be honest it follows the same format as our ‘Sonickraft Selections’ Podcast. We like to work our way in slowly and use different styles or genres. It’s really easy to play an hour of bangers but there’s no real transition or purpose to it then. So we’d say patience and experimentation are the ingredients in this one.
Tell us about your next EP?
Our next EP is our collab with the Vanilla Ace, who we are big fans of! That’s out on Solotoko. We’ve followed Sam’s stuff since we started as Sonickraft and his WyldCard releases are a mainstay in our mixes, so to join up and release something was great for us and we can’t wait to get it out there!
What have you got coming up?
We’ve got a number of releases penned in for 2021 including releases on Realm, Stashed, Simma & Force of Habit with plenty more to announce but we probably can’t go into that too much right now!
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
Respect to the people still listening to music at home during the lockdowns! – Stay strong! Hopefully, there’s light at the end of the tunnel now and we can soon get back to doing what we love and going to gigs/festivals and having the best time ever! Oh and thanks to everyone who supported us in 2020! It might go down as the worst year in memory but for us 2020 was our best year and we hope to keep that going into 2021!
