One of the outstanding releases of the last year has been Mekkanikka’s ‘California Dreaming’ album, a morning Full On gem of timeless beauty, still frequently to be heard at Psytrance parties. With this 6th album, Nikka has proven his master skills to be sharp enough to take on 2012 with an appetite for enlightenment. Be ready for some new Mekkanikka material coming out soon on various EPs trickling down the United Beats release schedule during the rest of the year.
The newest member of the United Beats family is the Swiss born, Mexican grown, Berlin based jack of all trades Luca Szekely aka Audio Hijack. His career is lined with releases on historic Trance labels like Spirit Zone, Tatsu, Hadshot , Compact or Midjium, and gigs at legendary festivals like Voov Experience, Fusion, Union Fest or Burning Man. His newest EP called ‘Wave Generator’ will be out on United Beats Records at the end of July 2012.
The Wild Monkeys are one of the great new discoveries of the label: Their debut EP hit dance floors like a meteor, the second one will be out in August. Another exciting newcomer is Block Device, his upcoming ‘Spaceship EP’ already gained amazing feedback by the label’s DJs and their audiences. Still hot are the last releases, the ‘Air Trance Flight 002′ compilation by DJ Domino and the mighty ‘Best Of 2011′ compilation.
