It’s time for the monthly event again, where I release a new DJ mix, with the best new tunes I could find. More than a month has passed since my last mix. The delayed was because I had to focus on other things, like finishing a tune that I just signed to a label. More about that later.
It’s a new month and thus time for my monthly DJ mix of great new dance music. Enjoy!
I just got myself a new Pioneer DDJ-400 DJ controller and thought it was way overdue to make a new mix. Here it is. Enjoy!
Just in time for the (almost) spring, my Two Waves Colliding Remixes EP is finally available for streaming on the usual places. It’s also available for download on Beatport. This EP has three versions: A remastered, shorter (Edit) version of the original tune from 2020, a fresh new remix by John Keding, and a remix by me, aka Knatter. Check it out, click that heart icon in Spotify and tell all your friends about it. :)
Finally some new music from me. Well, sort of. In less than a week, when writing this, my next EP Two Waves Colliding will be released on Spotify and all the other streaming services, including Beatport. It’s a revisit to a fan favorite, originally released in 2020. Now in a remastered version and two spanking new remixes. Here is a little taste of one of the remixes, by Sweden’s John Keding.

I was browsing through this years’ Wrapped for Artists on Spotify. As usual, it was a depressing read, once again highlighting my obvious lack of self-promotion and releasing new music to keep the fans interested. Listening rates going steadily down. That sort of stuff.
One interesting thing came out of that ordeal, however. Some plays of my 2005 track Gravitons came from a relatively new playlist called Club Penguin Original Soundtrack. I investigated further and soon found out that apparently Gravitons was used in a hugely popular online game called Club Penguin, back in the mid-2000, and more recently in Club Penguin 3D (CP3D).
I think that is the third game my music has been licensed to so far, as I know of anyway. Maybe I should add ‘Game musician’ to my Linkedin Profile. ;)
In the mid-2000s, I got a lot of shit done. Releasing new music, remixing other artists, and somehow getting my stuff played by leading names like Armin Van Buuren and Markus Schulz. Sometimes I would also get requests to do guest mixes for various streaming shows because obviously, people thought I was also a DJ (which I wasn’t). Seeing this as a great opportunity to spread my music and that of my friends, I quickly learned how to put together live mixes using the Traktor Software together with a cheap MIDI controller. Here is one of my better mixes from that era. Hope you enjoy it.
