TP MIX #120 – Dean Fuel

Prominent DJ and producer, Dean Fuel, has provided a top tier mix for us featuring sounds from some of his South African peers, big names across the globe and even a sneaky “Playground Edit” of his latest single ‘All In’ (Dub Mix)!

Having recently established his new digital record label, SMAAK, Dean Fuel has his sights set on big things. In a recent interview, Dean Fuel expressed his love for all styles of dance music, however, he said the aim for the new label was for it to explore his particular interest in progressive tech-house.

“We’re not creating a new space, but we’re adding to a space that I feel very passionate about.”

Dean’s debut label release ‘All In’ clearly communicates this and has set the bar high for future projects under the SMAAK banner.

“It’s going to take time to really find it’s own groove,” he said, “it’s something that’s going to be an evolution… I think the journey is part of the exciting part of this.”

With a few more releases planned for the label this year, it is well worth keeping an eye and ear on SMAAK‘s development. For now, enjoy this vibrant mix courtesy of the label’s head:
