The name DJ Satelite and Cee ElAssaad are two of which has been mentioned consistently throughout the year and most certainly have made their mark on the Afro House scene with great releases. To add further to their catalogue, DM.Recordings are proud to present our forthcoming release and label debut from DJ Satelite and Cee ElAssaad with their single ‘If Only’ featuring Inami.
These clever pair of producers have embedded their culture/nationality in their original by providing listeners with a full flavour of Angolan and Moroccan house music. This smooth, base-rich track is nicely heightened with tribal drums and slick vocals from Inami.
To add to the original in creating a fuller package of music, our very own Jonny Miller is back with a dreamy spin on this track through his masterly keys. In addition to this, Jackson Brainwave provides even further depth with an edgy tech sound capturing his distinctively sharp kicks. Lastly, Caiiro wraps up the remixes with a well crafted afro-ridden remix that will speak straight to your feet given it orders to dance.
This EP is set to do big things and take us into the last quarter of the year in high spirits.
