The 'Sahara Sun' EP comes complete with remixes by Deeparture and Mark Santangelo

We've got another great track premiere for you today, as iDJ brings you the first chance to hear Sahara Sun by Paul Hazendonk and Hank Achi. The full single release is out on Monday on Pangea Recordings.

Having racked up some 20 years in the game, Dutch producer Paul Hazendonk shouldn't need much introduction by now. He's the mastermind behind the Manual Music label, while his own releases, ranging from deep and progressive house to techno, have featured on other respected imprints such as Hope Recordings, Stripped Recordings and Technique Records.

For this release, he teams up once more with partner-in-crime Hank Achi, with whom he's worked previously on releases including 2015's The Sentinel and Driving Back, and this year's Vroesenpark. In its Original form, Sahara Sun is (as you'll hear below) a progressive house affair that starts out deep and groovy but soon busts out the analogue synth toplines, making for a euphoric, sunny cut that's sure to inspire many a dancefloor 'moment'. If the full-on synths aren't to your taste, though, then the EP also comes with remixes from Deeparture and Mark Santangelo, who take the track down deeper and techier paths, respectively.
