A meticulous attention to detail and mechanical timing built into his DNA, ESKEI83 has evolved his DJing skills into pristine production abilities that span across genres with ease. A quick dive into his recent arsenal displays this unmatched range, where the Dresden-based artist has forayed into dubstep with ‘Think Bout You,’ trap and house in ‘Like This‘ with Thugli, and now looks to go even deeper with a new drum and bass brute titled ‘TAKING IT HIGHER.’
A collaboration alongside BLVCK CROWZ, a hard dance duo from the Netherlands, ‘TAKING IT HIGHER’ has all the elements of a European drum and bass festival anthem.

With a crisp second half switch-up that further pushes the versatility of these producers, ‘TAKING IT HIGHER’ truly has all the fixings. Don’t miss it below.
