It was no less than Pablo Picasso who said that, “good artists copy but great artists steal”. Although at the time of uttering those words House music bootlegs of RnB anthems were yet to even appear on the horizon, we feel confident that the Spanish master would heartily approve of Swiss producer Cyril Hahn‘s route to the top. Hahn made his name with a few personally uploaded edits back in 2012, the most notable being a pitched down rework of Destiny Child’s classic ‘Say My Name’. Infectiously groovy yet subtle, his version has had nearly 13 million YouTube views and received kudos from the likes of Annie Mac and The XX.
Bores might trot out tired arguments about authenticity and say what Hahn does means he’s not a ‘real’ artist, but there’s a particular kind of genius to what he does. His original ‘Voices’ EP out last year on PMR proved his talent for arranging harmonies and melodies to be no for real, with the trio of vocalists featured all on fine form. Hahn’s instrumentals meanwhile, toe the line between Pop and House, finding a sweet spot between both styles that many producers spend their entire career’s searching for.
Unsurprisingly an in demand remixer, Solange, Sigur Ros and HAIM have already enlisted the now Vancouver based artist to rejig their singles. Accessible yet considered and unique, these versions all bear the trademark Cyril Hahn style – a quite brilliant form of musical thievery that marks him out as one of the most exciting talents of recent years. Catch him on Sunday…

Before Disclosure had ever sold out arenas across America, before Rudimental had sound-tracked every sporting montage on television, and before Skream was the toast of Radio 1, there was Wookie. An innovator across a number of genres, the Londoner got his break way back in 1991 when he began working as a producer for Reggae artist Wayne Marshall. He’d later go on to work for British pioneers Soul II Soul, before focusing more full on his solo productions towards the turn of the millennium.
From 1999 to 2001, he was in the midst of a creative purple patch which saw the cornerstones of the hugely influential ‘Wookie sound’ laid down. Tracks like ‘Scrappy’ and former Top 10 hit ‘Battle’ featured carefully applied licks of Rhodes and soulful harmonies atop Bass that packed genuine force – a timeless case of pairing the rough with the smooth. His remixes have also been equally beloved over the years, with his version of Sia’s ‘Little Men’ a staple of UKG raves since the moment it was released.
After a brief hiatus, Wookie was back in 2012 – instantly piling up remixes for the superstars like Bobby Womack, Disclosure and Usher alongside brand new original material. Not about to enter the ‘lifetime achievement’ stretch of his career by any means, Wookie is in the unique position of being both a respected veteran – receiving deserved praise from the younger generation, and a vital contributor to the scene.
DJ’ing now for the first time in his career, Wookie has graced the finest clubs in the world – playing the likes of Berghain, fabric and Warehouse Project in recent years. Set to bring a taste of the present, past and future, you’d do well to make sure you catch him on Sunday…
