Daniel Steinberg - Treptow

It is one of the biggest surprises of the month that I received as a promo some days ago thanks to Rebel Butterfly PR: the new album of Daniel Steinberg. Sometimes you need to lose your mind, to regain your musical soul. For Berlin DJ/producer Daniel Steinberg, an intense touring period in the wake the releasing of his debut album “Shut Up” warranted just that. Suffering from a heavy tour comedown and questioning the direction of not just his music, but his ongoing desire to continue as a globetrotting artist, he locked himself in his East Berlin studio for a nine-day period of “self-imposed exile” that ultimately laid the foundations for his latest housy/funky opus, «Treptow» (a whole neighbourhood in Berlin). Best track of the album ? “Joy happiness”: a paradox to the previous situation, a nu-disco, funky and catchy track. A must have for any good warm-up.


“For the nine days I didn't speak to a soul except for the pizza delivery guy and completely lost my mind (in the best possible way) listening to some very obscure experimental music from the likes of Ron Geesin, Mark Shreeve and Trevor Wishart. This time acted as the reset button that inspired me to produce 'Treptow',” he tells.

Long-lauded by Jesse Rose who signed him to his Front Room Recordings label and the likes of Richie Hawtin, Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano and Claude Vonstroke who’ve supported his tunes, “Treptow” speaks of a producer enjoying a deep vein of inspiration. Over fourteen tracks he has crafted a longplayer filled-to-the-brim with rich, personality-laden electronic music, that’s indicative of not just the breadth of his production palette, but his passion and commitments to creating colourful dance music with genuine soul and feeling.

To encase oneself in the world of Steinberg’s “Treptow” is to be taken on a trip through the artist’s kaleidoscopic musical consciousness, which effortlessly swings from the multi-layered bass grooves and low-slung funk of “Mechanics”, to the disco-tinged vibes of “True Romance” and “Joy & Happiness”, the latter of which received Beatport’s Track of the Day upon release in February last year. It is with no doubt the best track of the opus.

He also crafts, simple, stunning piano-laden house with aplomb, as album single “Can’t Find My Baby” attests to, while reinforcing his ability to produce punchy, crisp tech house with “Let Me Down”. It ensures the longplayer is as well-rounded and varied piece of music.

Steinberg adds to conclude: “My music journey has been fantastic, full of foreign places and unforgettable strangers, the opportunity for which I am hugely grateful. But the one constant throughout my whole life has been Treptow, a place I will always come back to, where my family and friends still live, where my studio has always been and the place I'm so lucky to call home, and so this album goes out to that.”

So don’t miss it, because you will be surprise by these great and catchy vibes.
