The art of sensitive noise and subtle sounds and beats is what CROATIA SQUAD is all about, as well as one of Switzerland’s most on demand and respected deep and tech house producer and DJ.
Within the past four years, Croatia Squad has been delivering high quality deep and tech house with releases on some of the biggest and most respected labels in Electronic Music such as, Toolroom Records, Enormous Tunes, Ministry Of Sound, Sirup Music, and Milk & Sugar. While on remix duties, their Calippo remix, “Looking for A Meaning”, made it to Beatport’s top 100.
In 2009 Croatia Squad ran the successful annual compilation series “Croatia The Opening” which contains exclusive chill-out tracks from some of the biggest names in scene. That same year they also signed their first release, “Electric Masquerade” EP on Enormous Tunes, including a remix by house music legend Daniel Portman – later signed to Toolroom Records.
In 2013, their collaboration with Calippo, “The Conductor”, was signed to Ministry of Sound. Croatia Squad’s new single “Be Good To Me” has been in the top 3 for weeks, and is sure to be this year’s Beatport indie charts sensation gaining global attention from some of the biggest names. On the other hand the latest EP “All Alone” includes a classic house infused nu disco monster “Give it All Away”. Full of bass line, pumping beat sections, touchy major chords and an urban like vocal hooks, calling it a crowd pleaser would be an understatement.
The revolutionary distinctive sound is only an instrumental part of the success. Taken part for years in Europe’s dance culture, and playing at legendary venues, through genre shifts and changes, gaining experience, and knowledge, learning about the affinity with the crowd, which he uses intelligently to build a connection. Trying to bring the world of underground house and techno in a way that can be accepted by the mass public is the goal for Croatia Squad’s upcoming DJ-Tour.
