DJ Eternity – ‘New Horizon’

DJ Eternity returns on ZYX TRANCE with another sure winner called ‘New Horizon’. This track is a driving, full-on, euphoric, intense trancer with moments of feel-good happiness throughout the well-crafted, anthemic climax. The long and pleasurable breakdown is underlined with a truly infectious hook that sounds like therapy for the ears. ‘New Horizon’ will have your feet tapping and your body moving straight away.

Sam Blacky – ‘Colombiana’

“‘Colombiana’ was inspired by my love for the Latin influence in music. It seems to be coming to the forefront much more recently, which makes me so happy. The sensual guitar set amongst tech house tribal vibes is what makes it for me. Since I started performing and especially making music, Repopulate Mars has always been one of my biggest goals. I think the level of taste-making and innovation in the tech house scene is unparalleled, and I couldn’t be happier to join the family.”

The pair previously collaborated when Billen Ted remixed Kah-Lo’s hit single ‘Drag Me Out’ earlier this year.

BYOR – ‘Say Yes’

“The story behind the single [‘Say Yes’] and its title is that every DJ dreams of the same thing – a huge dance floor filled with a responsive crowd. But even the most confident DJs, since they are all human beings, have complexes, echoes of doubts, and uncertainty. In my head, every set begins with a silent question that I’d like to ask the crowd  – if I ask you to dance, would you say ‘Yes’? All doubts are dispelled instantly when I see the answer is ‘Yes’!”
