House music pioneer ‘When I’m With You”
Goldsmiths is a well-known arts college in London and Georg’s stint there led him to MTV and other film production companies. He met Dixon there and they started a long-term partnership. Steffen Berkhahn co-produced his first release “When I’m With You.” and then later the cult house classic ‘I Got Somebody’. It was the beginning of a new era in music. The house sound was fresh and new, and it quickly caught on with clubbers and house music lovers around the world.

Georg Levin – It Was Fun For A While.
It Was Fun for A While references the hazy, honeyed 80s, a time where RnB, Disco and New Wave had a brief fling. The track is bolstered by a totally infectious groove, elegantly crafted and mixed down with a precision touch. Georg Levin’s warm and atmospheric vocal captures the nostalgic moment and feelings of golden and bygone halcyon days. The reference to the 80s is not only in the sound of the music, but also in the lyrics which play with an emotionally abstract nostalgia. The result is a hauntingly beautiful track that captures the feeling of a time gone by.
It Was Fun For A While remixes.
Amberoom, comprised of Manuel Tur, Ramin Nouyan, and Adrian Hoffman, will deliver the goods with their more stripped down rejig. DJ and producer Tim Paris’ work with Ivan Smagghe will give you the heebie jeebies, while Mule Musiq and Monologues, Eitan Reiter’s take the track to a much deeper and darker room. Festivals of summer 2022 beware. This is the track that will be scored in your head and your ears well after the festival fun has ended.
