Sagan's Exclusive Mix
Sagan is one of the hottest producers in the world of future house. He continually releases quality tracks and he’s successfully spread himself over a variety of labels while exploring new directions within his signature sound. The past two months have seen the massive success of his tracks “Need You Too” on Musical Freedom and “Dance With Me” on Future House Music, and with a release due out on Spinnin’ in a few weeks we were delighted to have Sagan join us!
How’d you approach your Exclusive Mix and how does the track selection compare to your live sets at the moment?
This mix features all tracks that I’m listening to these days. It’s a bit different from my usual live sets as for this Exclusive Mix I picked the tracks that reflect my mood for today. Now I like them, tomorrow I’ll like something else, it can change quite quickly.
Can you highlight three tracks included in your Exclusive Mix and why they stand out to you?
The first one I would highlight is “Nerven” by Syskey. I’ve been a fan of his for a while and I play this track in almost every show of mine.
Another one I truly like is “Momentum” by Don Diablo, it has something special in it and you don’t see this often in most EDM tracks nowadays.
And the third one would be “Magenta Riddim” by DJ Snake, his talent speaks for himself.
April started in a big way for you with the release of “Dance With Me.” Can you take us through the production process of the track going from initial inspiration to final tweaks?
I LOVE “Dance With Me”! This is probably the most special track for me. Everyone needs positive vibes and I believe this track fills your soul with good energy! I can tell this track is going to be played a lot this festival season. The idea for the track actually appeared after I first listened to these wonderful vocals – and when you have some great vocals, the melody, the sound and the drums just pop up in your head!
Future House Music seems like a perfect home for the track. Can you talk a little bit about signing to that label and working with their team?
I’ve been actively releasing my tracks on different labels lately. I don’t really want to stick to one, I like my music to be diverse. And I’d been really planning to release on FHM for a while before it happened. I like the label and for the past few years it has grown to quite a big indie brand among other labels. They also host branded events which are quite important for any artist :)
“Need You Too” was a huge release on Musical Freedom earlier this year. What makes that track special for you?
“Need You Too” was actually something of an experiment for me, something between my signature future house sound and today’s big room house sound. When I finished the track, I knew it was a 100% match for Musical Freedom. I’m quite happy with this release and definitely going to work more with MF in the future.
Your tracks consistently rack up massive DJ support. What do you think makes your music and your sound so accessible and desirable for other DJs to play?
I’m a fan of emotions. I always try to avoid getting stuck with the same sound, instead opting to come up something fresh and creative. I think this is the answer :)
Can you talk about some of your goals as you hope to take your career to the next level? Are there any major milestones, release or DJ wise, that come to your mind right away?
Every artist’s intention is to be heard by as many people as possible and I’m no exception. We work hard with my team everyday to reach broader audiences. Don’t want to spill the beans now, but please be sure there’s tons of interesting things to expect from Sagan this year!
We hear you’ve got a big release coming in mid May! What can you tell us about that and how the rest of your summer is shaping up?!
That’s true, I have a new track out on Spinnin’ mid May. It’s a collaboration with the sweetest vocalist, Nathalie Gioia, and it’s probably the most emotional track I’ve ever produced. I really can’t wait to share it with the listeners! This summer, I’m going to be visiting more countries, releasing new tracks on big labels and also put out a few collabs with great artists. So many interesting things are ahead, so follow my socials and stay tuned!
