special guest: WATERMAT
Dance music has never been the same since the rise of French artist Watermät.
Coming up as an underdog, although not a complete newbie, he’s by now turned the scene upside down with his completely original sound.
French DJ/Producer Laurent Arriau has been composing tracks for several artists in the past, before releasing his own tracks. In the autumn of 2013 he decided it was his time to take the stage himself and share his love for dance music with the world. His first self-released EP “Sparks”, including the tracks; Sparks and Something About You, was released in December 2013. After that, the buzz around Watermät started rolling and Spinnin’ Records took their chance to sign him for his next track Bullit on their Deep imprint in February 2014.
And the rest, as they say, was history. Bullit was released to critical acclaim on Spinnin’ in May 2014. Receiving huge support from the biggest DJs in the scene who included the track in their set, it was a massive hit at the Miami Music Week, topping #1 on the DMC buzz chart while Pete Tong chose the track as “Essential New Tune of the Week” in his BBC Radio show.
Bullit quickly turned into a worldwide hit, played on dance floors as well as radio, peaking in charts in several countries, by over 100 million plays online! With Bullit’s highly original sound, Watermät became one of the hottest new names around. This was continued with his 2015 singles Frequency (a collab with TAI), Portland (alongside Moguai) and All My Love all played by the biggest DJs out there, ranging from mainstage heroes like Tiësto, Calvin Harris to (deep) house tastemakers like The Magician and Martin Solveig. And once more Watermat proved that the hyped was real, with tracks like: Ruff Like This, Won't Stop,
Need U and Preach Watermat has shown the world what he's worth. Even while touring all around the globe to play his music: he always finds time to go to the studio and put his particular own style into his music. And this has been showing positive respond from all
around; year after year.
As his tracks generate millions of plays from around the world, his music is praised for its headstrong sound, combining major appeal with cool, contemporary house music. It’s a
stand-alone sound, not to compare with anything, and it’s taken Watermät to great heights.
Expect more from this amazing artist REAL soon!
