Alvaro Hylander - Dark Life - What Happens
(Feat. Tim Andresen Remix + Fer Ferrari Remix)

We bring you not one but three label bosses on this release and it's a biggie! Born in the south of Spain, Alvaro Hylander has been involved in the music industry for a long time first as a DJ, then a highly successful producer before establishing his own DeepWit Recordings. Dark Life is Alvaro's first What Happens release and his original is nothing but a deep house bomb! The chugging beats, dark spoken vocal and lively bass line takes us all back to the glory days of house. The first remix comes courtesy of What Happens main man Tim Andresen who ups the tempo a notch and keeps a lush summerish soundscape while DeepClass head honcho Fer Ferrari keeps it moving with a bass-driven groove affair and rounds off a truly monstrous package.

Tim Andresen - Just The Music EP - What Happens

Tim Andresen turned a lot of heads with his recent releases on Elevation, Seamless, Starlight Unlimited, DeepWit and What Happens with some truly great things in the pipeline for 2013 too. First up is ‘Just The Music EP’ featuring 2 originals and a remix.

The crisp drum groove of the title track is topped with percussion, a silent crowd noise and old school-ish synth chords before introducing a seductive spoken female vocal. On remix duty is Gran Canaria’s finest Ricardo Espino who continues his run of form following up on his recent EP on What Happens. He offers a heavier snare-shuffling sound for the tech house heads. The final track ‘I Surrender’ is an ethnic inspired deep house number built around swirling, dreamy pads, a simple flute and well placed vocal hooks. Something that is likely to warm up your crowd on these chilly nights.

Supported by Nick Warren, Spiritchaser, Nic Fanciulli (Milo), Timo Garcia, Zoe Xenia,, Paco Osuna, Hollen, Richy Ahmed, Stanny Abram, Sergio Fernandez, Jose Maria Ramon, Dave Nash / Cytric, Dom Kane, Da Lukas, Daniele Tignino, Carlos Francisco, Nick Hook, Sean Danke, Cram, Desos, Richie Hartness and many more.

- You Gave Me Everything (Original Mix)
- You Gave Me Everything (Tim Andresen Remix)
- The Floor Is Yours (Original Mix)

Please welcome the new addition to the What Happens roster… Maxi Valvona.

We are lucky enough to have had a sneak listen to his future stuff and there’s something to keep eyes and ears open for. First up is his new ‘You Gave Me Everything EP’ featuring 2 original tracks both with single potential. Meanwhile What Happens headman Tim Andresen continues his scarily fine form of late and turns in a techier remix to round off a truly awesome EP.

Original / Teva Remix / Paxton Fettel Remix

Danish Dynamite EP featuring exclusive tracks from

Tim Andresen, Mark Kruse & Thomas Dieckmann, Desos and Chris Sane

We bring you an explosive EP with the finest sounds and beats from the sizzling Danish underground scene. First up is What Happens boss Tim Andresen with his 'Come With Me'. An excellent slice of jackin house that should pick up fans across the board with equal parts of old school and new school sounds. Tim continues his fine form of late. Mark Kruse & Thomas Dieckmann follow up where they left on the remix of Tim Andresen's 'Arena'. This is 'No Different' and is quite simply the best work we have heard from the guys yet. Techy disco flavors topped with great vocal snippets. Desos is the main man behind Deso Records. His 'Black Beans' heads in a slightly new direction and can't be compared to previous work for Look Ahead, Reisei, I Records etc. but this deep percussive cut has exactly that special feeling we all love so much. To round things off, there is a brilliant deep house track from Chris Sane. 'You Know Better' offers a cool laidback vibe and is spiced up with a hot spoken vocal. The phrase less is more makes sense when listening to this....

Tim Andresen - Arena - What Happens

Original Mix / Chris Rawles Remix / Mark Kruse & Thomas Dieckmann Remix

Hailing from Copenhagen, Tim Andresen has been making waves across clubland for quite a while. He has a list of accolades as long as your arm with releases on Azuli, Southern Fried, Toolroom etc., while more recently boosting his production portfolio with new releases signed to Natural Rhythm, Starlight Unlimited, Seamless and Elevation Recordings.
Right then… Fast forward to what it’s all about. ‘Arena’ is a piano-driven cut backed by strings, an energetic bass, effective percussion and a nicely placed female vocal hook. It most certainly does its job and works the dance floors.
On remix duty is Chris Rawles who takes on a slightly deeper approach with a low-slung bassline, while twisting and turning the piano and vocal cleverly. Mark Kruse & Thomas Dieckmann deliver the 2nd remix in this package. Plain and simple, it’s a great DJ tool for those who like it groovy.

What Happens 50th Release
Tim Andresen / Denis Horvat / Jesus Pablo & Di Riviera / Chris Minus … ase/653632

What Happens reaches the milestone 50th release and the boys decided to pull something pretty special out of the hat.

It’s being celebrated with a monstrous 4-track EP featuring exclusives from Tim Andresen, Denis Horvat, Jesus Pablo & Di Riviera and Chris Minus.

First up is What Happens main man Tim Andresen who brings us a filtered house bomb called ‘Clammy Old Place’. That is followed by Denis Horvat’s ‘More Of This’ fresh from the Beatport chart success of his recent Kling Klong release. Jesus Pablo & Di Riviera deliver ‘Runaway’, a stand out DJ tool with serious breakdowns and something different from their previous work. Do you have the balls to drop it? Rounding off this stunning package, Chris Minus blows a ‘Pink Bubble’ and pushes his signature sound that already picked up fans after releases on Neurotraxx Deluxe, I Records and more.

"What Happens have been on a monster of a roll lately..." - Russell Deeks.

S.K.A.M. - I See You EP
Feat. I See You / Walking On Sunshine / Floating On Air


Arguably the coolest music export out of the Russian underground right now, S.K.A.M. delivers a monstrous 3-tracker hot on the heels of recent work for Spinnin' Records, Lapsus Music, Nervine Records, Datagroove Music, Insert Coin Records and Dirty Players.
First he brings us the title track “I See You”, a piano-driven tech house bomb fused with a huge spoken vocal. This one has a very strong touch of old school mixed with a current sound. It’s a party starter. Play it out loud and see the reaction. Then it’s no longer a wonder why the tastemakers rate this a future anthem. Up next is “Walking On Sunshine” with a shuffling groove and a rolling bassline leading straight into the big drop that takes us all back to the glory days of disco. To round things off, S.K.A.M. goes slightly deeper with his “Floating On Air” while still keeping the funkyness with rhodes, chopped vocals and an overall disco-ish house style.
This EP will get you in the vibe and get you dancing.

Selected feedback (in no particular order):
Ronan Portela: Great
Dualton: i see you sounds nice smile will try.
Sergio Fernandez: Full support! Pure groove and feeling! Thanks! smile
Eric Entrena: Big fan of SKAM! Supporting these ones!
Horatio: nice ep i like it
Spiritchaser: liking " I See You " Thanks for sending!
Peter Gelderblom: pure quality!!
Alex Kenji: like it. i will try it out
Jose Maria Ramon: what a bomba! great sound for Ibiza! Full support
Richie Hartness: Take your pick - top class EP!
Denis Horvat: Floating On Air for me. Thanks
Jesus Pablo: all over ´I See You´ - nice track...
Guy DMC Buzzchart: Such a cool hook, seeing this as a big secret track for the big boys but I will spoil it and tell the world in the Buzz ha ha!

If you have had an eye on the sizzling underground scene lately it’s very likely you have bumped into Stanny Abram. Profilic both in the quality and quantity of his releases, the Slovenian tech house don is on a roll.
The Zoo EP features 3 top-notch tools for your DJ-set all based on excellent drum programming executed to perfection and topped with piano, trumpet and vocals respectively. Check them out.

Supported by

Eddie Amador, Roger Sanchez, Spritchaser, Tim Andresen, Graham Sahara, Sergio Fernandez, Paco Osuna, Aldrin, Per Hammar, Denis Horvat and many more


The talented Liverpool-duo Jesus Pablo & Di Riviera bring us their biggest tune ever. No question about it. ‘You Got The Feeling’ has the word anthem written all over with it’s truly monstrous piano hook destined to be an ear catcher in the clubs this summer.
Tim Andresen turns in a slightly more pumping version with an emotional breakdown full of strings and a simple guitar before getting back into piano business. Tried and tested already, this bomb will get a huge reaction and your crowd screaming when dropped.
Fresh from the chart success of his ‘Sleep No More’ release with Noir on Aki Bergen’s Neurotraxx Deluxe imprint, Chris Minus rounds off the package. It’s his trademark groovy sound for those who fancy a short break from the piano madness.

It's bannered on Beatport and currently being played by DJs across the board; Roger Sanchez, Stonebridge, Chris Lake, Spiritchaser, Sergio Fernandez, Timo Garcia, Huxley, Andy Durrant (Capital FM), The Scumfrog, Graham Sahara (Pacha Ibiza resident), Eric Entrena, David Vendetta and many many more.
