Hannes Smith “Herzsprung”

It has never easier to produce electronic music than today. Thanks to software such as Ableton, everyone can put together a track within seconds. The result of that: hundreds of releases each week, and most of them are rather dull and boring. In fact, the number of artists in electronic music that are somehow outstanding and exceptional is quite limited.

One of those artists is Hannes Smith. He developed his own and unique style: his music is romantic, melancholic and full of melody. Even though you might not hear it at Berghain at 6am in the morning, it is perfect for the dance floor.
