REVIEW: Dave Winnel - Old School out on Axtone

Following Kryder’s melodic ‘Crocodile Tears’, Axtone welcomes back its favourite producer from down-under, Dave Winnel for his 2nd release and his debut original on Axtone, titled ‘Old School’.

Having previously remixed Robbie Rivera’s ‘Falling Deeper’ on the label in 2015, Dave’s releases continue to be a mainstay in clubland, garnering support from the likes of Axwell & Ingrosso, Armin van Buuren, Hardwell, and many more. Premiered via Steve Angello and his BBC Radio 1 residency, Dave’s amalgamation of new and old shines both in ‘Old School’ and his DJ sets as recently demonstrated by his stellar ‘Axtone Presents’ feature.

Building a flawless catalogue in 2015 Dave has released on Armada, Size, Revealed and Big Beat; with his remix of Axwell & Ingrosso’s ‘On My Way’ cementing his place in the next generation of producers for the World’s DJ elite. With a confirmed appearance during Axtone’s Croatia residency, it’s clear that Dave is making Axtone his second home, and Axtone are more than happy to accommodate.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Dave Winnel is rocking the club scene and he delivers on Axwell's incredible label Axtone the truly cranking Old School. Banging basslines with that old school early 90's flavour, punchy rocking grooves and awesome trap style breakdown with exotic melodies while the vocal promises to take us back to the old school. From Australia that loves to party comes an essential anthem for the summer. It will explode in the coming weeks so let the beats take you back to the old school. #PureBass #PureGold Love it[/content]
