Belgium based Spanish DJ and producer Jerry Ropero has one of the industry’s most colourful careers, thanks to his impressive DJ skills and unique studio talents. With a catalogue of records that includes releases on renowned labels such as Ministry of Sound and He’d Kandi, it’s no wonder he has been tasked with remixing A-List stars including Tiesto, Shapeshifters, Ian Carey, Tom Novy, Terri B and DJ Antoine – a testament to his work ethic and production skills.

Up next from Jerry Ropero is ‘Don’t Go Changing’, an infectious Disco infused House record that is sure to grab the attentions of many music lovers around the globe. Full of funky basslines, groovy beats, perfectly executed filter work and mind-blowing synth work, ‘Don’t Go Changing’ has all the required elements of a dance floor filler – perfect for any club worldwide and a must have for any DJ’s record box.

The release of ‘Don’t Go Changing’ sees Jerry make his return to The Groove Society Records, a sub label of Sony Music – a partnership that has flourished over the years. The Dubai based imprint has quickly become the Middle East’s leading record labels and it is easy to see why, with the brand boasting an impressive roster that includes artists like DJ PP, Dany Cohiba, Dee Marcus, Lipous, Matan Caspi, Stage Rockers and Federico Scavo. ‘Don’t Go Changing’ is out now so make sure you grab your copy in time for the Ibiza closing parties.

Mekki Martin – Here We Go [Tiger Records]

Czech professional DJ/Producer Mekki Martin is perhaps most well known for his residency at Tabarin, one of the country’s leading forces in electronic music. Not restricted by borders though, this young star has taken on the world both with a global tour schedule and a barrage of heavyweight releases on some of the world’s finest imprints including Cr2, Tiger, Kontor, Ego, Virus T Studio and many more. It’s not just the labels locked in though – Mekki’s picked up support from a bunch of the world’s top DJs including Abel Ramoz, CrazIbiza, Daddy’s Grove, DJ Dan, Freemasons, Funkagenda, Fuzzy Hair, Ian Carey, Kaskade, Matisse & Sadko, Paul Oakenfold, Ralph Good, Robbie Rivera, Seamus Hajl, StoneBridge, Syke’N’Sugarstarr, Wally Lopez and many more.

‘Here We Go’ is a no-nonsense big-room vocal that’s driven by a gut-wrenching kick drum that contrasts to the commercially viable and Progressive breakdown. True to his reputation, the production is of the highest calibre from top to bottom. Chunky drums carry the body of the track and Mekki’s love for pristine synth work shines over the top adding the polish on what is a fully professionally produced single. We’re lucky to have an abundance of young talents coming up in the dance music game and with the likes of Mekki Martin taking control of the international trends; we’re in for a bright future.
