2016 has been all about change for German DJ and producer Andre Crom: the OFF Recordings label head packed up his base in Berlin and moved to Barcelona; he devoted himself entirely to music production; and his sound shifted from tech-house to a darker shade of techno.
Crom's latest EP, The Existence, is functional and effective techno built for the dancefloor—think warped and evolving acid lines, booming kicks, and train-like forward momentum. The Existence was released via OFF in August and featured a remix from fellow German producer Oliver Deutschmann, who ups the speed for a full-blown white-knuckle ride.
Recently, XLR8R was passed a second Deutschmann edit, this time, a deeper, groovier outing. You can download the edit via WeTransfer below, with the EP available over at Decks.
