Glenn Astro currently resides in Essen and has spent half his life producing and DJ’ing. He started out with Hip-Hop and later got into ultra soulful House music.
Hard to believe his first release came out in 2011 and in such a short timespan Glenn has gotten so damn good. His signature sound is where Hip-Hop says farewell to House music, like two lovers who have just taken a hot bath together and now part ways. The 26-year-old German producer has mastered the gritty low-end so well and all of the EP’s he has been releasing the past year have been freakin’ brilliant.
Glenn Astro’s returns with another gang of grooves. His warm, soul-infused “Hologram” EP is is forthcoming on WotNot Music and is set to be released on vinyl March 23rd and digitally early April. None other than Henry Wu (22a) was called in for help to remix “Love Is Gone”, which he does with a delightful, jazz-instilled flip. Since we have been following both closely for a while, we are stoked to exclusively premiere this particular track of the Hologram EP.
Drop by OYE Records on March 21st for an instore promotional session with Glenn Astro, Henry Wu, K15 and IMYRMIND. It goes without saying that you need to pick up this release seeing “User’s Guide To” and “Gemini” with IMYRMIND are brilliant as well. For those that love warm, jazzy, soulful vibes this release is essential! Check out this super limited pre-order (only 20 vinyl copies) link and act fast.
