501 // Diego Montiel – Hypnotic Music (Original Mix)

We resume our premieres with this masterpiece by Diego Montiel coming soon on Under The Trees.

Here we go again! After reaching out 500 premieres just before our deserved summer break, the first step towards the 1.000th is given today: For the occasion, we had the privilege of reviewing master Diego Montiel’s (SXDNS194) contribution for the forthcoming VA of the still small but highly promising Antwerp-based label Under The Trees, whose curators spared no efforts to bring together a true dream team of acclaimed artists of the so-called Indie Dance/Dark Disco scene. Besides Diego, behold: Alex Aguayo, Andrea Acosta, Bonnie Spacey (SXDNS337) & Rem’s Martinez (SXDNS108), Mundo D, Parissior (SXDNS206), and Sylphomatic (SXDNS354), just to name a few, jumped in with high-quality themes and raised the bar of the compilation by turning it into one of the most solid releases of the year so far.

After appearing on Critical Monday and Side Up Works, his very own hub, Diego continues his 2023 journey by landing on the new Belgium imprint with his characteristic sonority and handling a darkness-infused and eye-shadowed cut that blends some of his most noticeable influences such as Post-Punk, New Wave, Gothic Rock, EBM, and Synthpop, resulting in a dance-floor-oriented piece that lives up to its name.

You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Beatport page of the label.
