Eelke Kleijn keeps on treating his fans with brand new tracks, in anticipation of his long-awaited fourth studio album ‘Oscillations’ out September 25th. Releasing another masterpiece, ‘Woodstock’ is a track that takes Kleijn’s ingenuity to a whole other level.
A mesmerizing loop is completed by mystical strings and an angel-like topline. The elevating and celestial synths accelerate the transcendent rhythm of the track, building up to an exhilarating ending.
The track was inspired by the Dutch beach club bearing the same name, a very special place for the Dutch DJ and producer. ‘The best memories for me were always the intimate afterparties that would happen inside the venue. When the music is turned down after 11PM, everyone moves inside for one extra hour. Those moments were the best! But also as a DJ, it is such a joy to play there. Looking out over the crowd and the beach and sunset, the magic always sets in after 9 or 10 when it starts to get dark. The crowd is one of the best in the world, I don’t think there is another place quite like it!’ says Eelke.
‘Woodstock’ is part of a larger EP comprising many remixes of the original track which will be released in the weeks following the release. With Eelke shaping ‘Woodstock’ with his own signature sound, other resident DJs of the beach club put their own spin on Eelke’s original. This resulted in two remixes by Gerd Jansen: Tent 7 Remix and the chilled out Zeeweg 94 Remix, and another interpretation by Mano Le Tough. Hernan Cattaneo and his studio partner Soundexile also remixed the track by delivering a late-night take on Kleijn’s‘Woodstock’.
To celebrate this special release, Eelke recorded an exclusive live set at the beach club. The set will be livestreamed on Eelke Kleijn’s platforms on July 26th. Be sure to tune in on Eelke’s channels for a spectacular sunset show.
‘Woodstock’ is out now on DAYS like NIGHTS
