Get stuck into his hypnotic workout

With all his jet-setting you could forgive Tanzmann for moving on from his roots in Leipzig, maybe in favour of the warmer climes of Ibiza, or the edginess of nearby Berlin. But he’s stayed true, still living there and keeping the office of his long running label Moon Harbour in his town of birth.

Much like anything Tanzmann is involved with, quality control has been at the forefront of Moon Harbour’s output with consistently top-notch tracks from the deep to tech house spectrum.

Having released all of his own music through the imprint, Tanzmann’s heavy schedule has limited his output in ways. His last album came out eight years ago, the name of that release aptly titled ‘Restless’.

But the extensive travelling does have its upside and after being inspired by trips to Thailand and South America, Tanzmann carved out some time to get into the studio. His second album 'Momentum', is scheduled for an October 7 release and, as he put it, pits listening pleasure against dancefloor material.

“It is stuff to listen to at home, stuff I like to listen to away from the club. Of course it also contains tracks that are 100% what I love playing in my DJ sets.”

But don’t expect any sit-down moments from this mix that effortlessly weaves its way through an hour of emotive grooves. If it doesn’t make you feel like tearing up a dancefloor, then there’s something wrong.
