Moods & Grooves proudly introduces another new face, this time from the Detroit scene. DJ Eternal Student (aka Marvin Prather) steps up to the plate with his melodic track Hear Me Though and a deep groove entitled Transpose Deep.
Hear Me Though combines a funktastic bass line with some heavy breathing drums, strumming synths, xylophone like keys, and a sexy vox to create a wonderful head bobbing groove all on its own. Hot remixes of Here Me Though come courtesy of Domenique Xander (Berlin) and Deepset. Domenique puts a nice wash over it with panned and echo’d claps, drums, and very dreamy pads to create a stellar remix. Deepset ( a partnership between Brian Neal and Avalon Kalin) provide an up-tempo deep groove with a banging kick and swinging vocal chops to accompany the original vox of the track. A new bass line and funky congas produce a warm and lush version of the original. The synergy these producers had is incredible, all vibing from Marvin’s original version.
Transpose Deep is a climber. It starts off very unassuming with a solid 4 on the floor kick that morphs into solid synthy pads, and a funky bass line before it breaks into a full sprint of these elements, a bass that growls at you, and hats that swing hard. [info sheet from distr.]

New D.X. Music Stream on Facebook weekly!
I started a weekly livestream on my Facebook Page. This will now take place every Friday from 8pm. For 1-2 hours I will play sweet music for you. These sets will be uploaded to Soundcloud 1-2 days after the livestream, which you find here. Because there are often problems with the copyrights from FB I will add a section here on my website in the future, which will be called Streams. Here you could have a look in afterwards without muted tracks. See you in the livestream!
COMING SOON ON VINYL!
Soon on Moods & Grooves Records! A big thank you goes to Marvin Prather, who made it possible with his wonderful track „Hear Me Through“. I had the honour to remix his track. And not to forget the one and only Mike Grant for the opportunity! Thank you so much! ✊🏼🔥
Soon available on vinyl.
Who am I..
Domenique Xander was born in Eberswalde (Germany), near Berlin in 1983 where his passion for music developed.
He began as a DJ and producing tracks since 1998, at the age of fifteen. The first 2 years Domenique played mostly Hip Hop, Break Beats and Ambient Stuff.
Domenique made the jump into Dance Music as a DJ in 2000 and produced various tracks for many Record Labels arround the globe. His love for different styles of electronic music became bigger & bigger over the years.Since the early 2000s, Domenique has been very much inspired by many producers from Detroit.
He loves soul, jazz, disco to name just a few directions. All these impressions from the first steps of his productions and his DJ & Producer carreer until today make him what he is today.
