Wolfgang Gartner has had quite the revival in 2018, collaborating with upcoming producers k?d and JayKode, as well as earning a feature on Microsoft’s newest edition of the Forza Horizon racing games with “Ching Chong.”

Now, the “complextro” (complex electro) connoisseur has dropped his Medicine EP, a project reminiscent of what made him so popular around the 2010 electronic era. Gartner’s ability to maintain his own style while staying relevant shines through in this project by way of his catchy melodies, gamey synth contrasts, thumping rhythms, uplifting harmonies, and seamless transitions.

While the first three tracks off the extended play stick to the veteran’s signature style, the last three showcase his modern approach that implores recognition from today’s taste-makers. “Make It Clap” and “Bumblebee” keep with current bass-house bearings, a genre complementary for the electro king to dip his toes into, while perhaps considering diving in. Take note and allow yourself to melt to the half-time play around 1:30 on “Bumblebee.” “This Is Your Life” leans towards retro, house-thumping dance-pop that adds a sweet and saccharine supplement to the already brimming production.

Gartner teased the EP by dropping “Deja Vu” earlier this month, to listeners delight. Additionally, just one day ahead of the multi-track release, he teased with an ancillary EP mini-mix via Twitter.

Having a style entirely your own is something rare in the world of dance music today. With more artists than ever before finding success in production, it is hard to carve out a niche that is not quickly replicated. That being said, no other artist has found success producing in the style of Wolfgang Gartner.

Wolfgang Gartner revisits his old style on ‘Deja Vu’WolfgangGartner DejaVu FinalCover

Wolfgang Gartner has had somewhat of a stylistic renaissance in 2018, collaborating with rising superstar k?d on “Banshee” and earning a feature on Microsoft’s newest edition of the Forza Horizon racing games with “Ching Chong.” Yet, while he’s achieved increased success using contemporary methods, the artist’s newest output sees a return to the good old days. The LA-based DJ broke his career on hits like “Illmerica” in 2011 and “Redline” in 2012, and fans who have continued to follow his antics are in for a treat, as his newest release “Deja Vu” brings back those production methods.

Steady followers will immediately recognize the sound when the track kicks into gear, as Gartner quickly fades in his beloved electronics, including harmonizing leads and melodic deep synths. Although retro in style, the track’s versatile sound is enough for the new and the old to groove to with equal fervor.

“Deja Vu” is the first single off his upcoming Medicine EP, which is slated for a  November 2 release.

Wolfgang Gartner drops off sharp new setlist weapon, ‘Freak’

Wolfgang Gartner drops off sharp new setlist weapon, ‘Freak’Wolfgang Gartner Press 2016

Wolfgang Gartner has been busy this year releasing a variety of new tracks. The producer most recently dropped a collaboration with JayKode after dropping upbeat single “Ching Ching” and a collaboration with K?D earlier in the year. He has another single to add to the list in his newest original work, “Freak.”

As with any Wolfgang Gartner electro fare, “Freak” is an instant setlist ignitor — something the Kindergarten executive has built a decorated career on. The heavily synthesized vocals and chords blend together for a fresh electro-pop fusion. Back in 2016, Dancing Astronaut sat down with the venerated house producer to talk about the influence pop music has on electronic production and innovation. Since then, Wolfgang has had a reinvention of sorts, anchored to his newfound affinity for the power of pop. “Freak” is a natural reflection of that mentality, and its another aced addition to Wolfgang’s legendary catalog.

Wolfgang Gartner and JayKode release a haunting hybrid, ‘The Upside Down’

Wolfgang Gartner JayKode

Wolfgang Gartner has been back on the grind recently, releasing a series of electro house heat. His newest project with JayKode, “The Upside Down,” is a nod to Netflix‘s Stranger Things series not only in the title and branding, but also in sound. Gartner is known for his haunting ambiance with menacing, complextro glitches, and “The Upside Down” is no different — at the beginning. The second half takes a destructive turn, thanks to the trap stylings of JayKode. At this moment, the beat gets half-timed for some slowed down trapstep mayhem.

Since releasing his second studio album in 2016, 10 Ways to Steal Home Plate, Gartner has been collaborating with younger artists such as Aero Chord and K?d. The complextro legend is changing with the times while still keeping true to his signature sonic profile.
