Gullen hits that perfect pivot between noisy but emotive techno and loud but melodic deep house on Sumatra, the title track of his new EP from Germany’s Mobilee.

I know little to nothing about Gullen but if they’re a young cat, a tip of the hat: this is a technique that is very easy to conceptualize but so very hard to pull off without losing the dancefloor.
