Setting up a mighty French connection, DJ/producers HUGEL and Damien N-Drix have teamed up for the hot-blooded single “Tengo Ganas De Ti.” Building a vibe on melancholic mariachi horns, the guys back these up with sweet melodics and a sturdy tech house groove, bursting of bouncy rhythms and percussion. As sensual vocals declare she longs for you, the mood can’t get any better when this baby hits the floor – out now on Spinnin’ Records.
Counting hundreds of millions of streams, along with multiple Gold and Platinum records, French DJ/producer HUGEL has caused quite some waves in the global dance community. His Latin flavoured house music comes in many guises, from his 2018 claim to fame remix of “Bella Ciao” to last years hits “Morenita” and the popular Yves V collab “Finally,” to this year’s crowd-pleaser “El Sueno” – his music breathes the rare quality to blow away dance floors while also turning into certified radio hits.
The energy runs just as fast through the veins of Damien N-Drix, the Marseille-based producer who’s been building up a dense catalogue since 2015. Continuously evolving the music, his funky house sound reached a wider audience every year, from 2017 breakthrough hit “Let It Ring” to last year’s club favourite “Hands Up,” a teamup with BYOR and Alle Farben. In the meantime, Damien underscored his productional talent with high profile remixes for Felix Jaehn, Tujamo and Matisse & Sadko, proving he’s got the goods to ignite any dancefloor.
Together, these French tastemakers know how to bring the heat. “Tengo Ganas De Ti” moves on rhythmically swaying mariachi horns, enhanced by multiple sections, before a sensual voice exclaims the track’s title (“I long for you”), announcing a hot-blooded tech house groove. The whole atmosphere breathes HUGEL’s trademark Latin vibe, while Damien N-Drix keeps things moving with his ever-vigorous beats, filled with layers of percussion and bouncy bass chords.
Mesmerizing the crowd with its breakdown, where the melancholic horns are drenched in filtered effects, this tune functions as a true DJ weapon. “Tengo Ganas De Ti” has got summer heat written all over it, sure to raise all hands when it hits the beach, festival, or club sound system. She longs for you, HUGEL & Damien N-Drix tell the whole story with this colorful highlight in their continuously evolving careers.
