Recently named as one of Beatport’s “Breakthrough Artists of 2015,” Los Angeles–based DJ-producer Michael Sandler (aka SAAND) is making big moves in the electronic music world, and is slated to release his new EP Mysterious Power via Sabo‘s imprint, Sol Selectas Records. This EP finds SAAND exploring his deep tribal side with two original tracks that seamlessly blend indigenous and organic sounds with modern beats. In addition to a remix from Powel, the German house maven whose most recent release on All Day I Dream has proven markedly fruitful, Berlin-based producers and Keinemusik mainstays Till Von Sein & Tigerskin teamed up to deliver a remarkable remix of SAAND’s forthcoming original production, “Fiddler.”

Lush chords, ethereal strings, dubbed out percussion, and an exquisite ever-­evolving arpeggio create an unmistakable feel­-good momentum that’s down to earth and unceasing. Stream the track in full below, and hear from SAAND by visiting his SoundCloud page here.

In addition to spending his time creating high-quality house music, Sandler is also the director and senior editor of the music blog Music Is For Lovers (MI4L). Check it out by going here.
