A force is rumbling in the dance music scene and his name is Weiss. The British producer has had quite the rise with a jacking Chicago House sound gaining him support from big players like Groove Armada, Pete Tong, Green Velvet, Kenny Dope and now, Claude VonStroke. His latest single ‘Bounce‘ hit shelves thanks to Claude VonStroke, joining a long list of jacking house legends to be signed by Dirtybird. This also comes off the back of an impressive list of accredited labels including Defected, Green Velvet’s Relief and Toolroom Records.
Weiss’ tracks are no stranger to the high rotation schedule of BBC 1 Radio (listen to ‘My Sister’ which is currently sitting at almost 1.5 million YouTube views), and he’s a regular in the Beatport charts too. His rise to the top of the upper echelon has lead to official remixes for everyone from MK to Deadmau5 and there’s undoubtedly plenty more on the horizon.
Make no mistake, Weiss is well on his way towards dance music superstardom.
Deep jacking grooves, warm rumbling subs, sweet sharp percussion, delicate vocal treatment… Whatever it is about house music that stimulates you the most, you’re guaranteed to find plenty of it on a Weiss record.
After a spectacularly successful intro to the scene which saw Weiss being championed by the likes of Groove Armada, Loco Dice, Green Velvet, Kenny Dope, Pete Tong & more, the hit single ‘My Sister’ rotating on BBC Radio 1, whilst staying strong in the Beatport top ten chart for over four months, and countless gigs all over Europe, it was plain to see that Weiss was here to stay.
Following this lead, Weiss has risen to even greater heights, with his releases inspiring support from the most respected & freshest names in the industry, including Gorgon City, Shadow Child, Shiba San, Claptone, Hot Since 82, Claude VonStroke, Tensnake, Bontan and more.
‘Guitar Man‘ stormed up the Beatport charts and remained an essential in clubs for months after its release; whilst Pete Tong continues to champion Weiss’ remix of Green Velvet & Riva Starr‘s ‘Robots‘. The ‘Weiss City’ series have been picks of the summer, with tracks like ‘I Feel Better’proving to be fan favourites at the likes of We Are FSTVL. Similarly, his remixes of MK’s iconic ‘Always‘, Tube & Berger’s soulful ‘Come On Now (Set It Off)’ and Deadmau5’s anthemic ‘Raise Your weapon’ have set the industry alight with accolades from all corners of the scene.
