Dance music has never been the same since the rise of French DJ/Producer Watermät. Coming up as an underdog, although not a complete newbie, he’s by now turned the scene upside down with his completely original sound.
Born as Laurent Arriau, Watermät has been composing tracks for several artists in the past, before releasing his own tracks. In the autumn of 2013 he decided it was his time to take the stage himself and share his love for dance music with the world. ‘Bullit’ was his first track released on Spinnin’ Records, which reached the GOLD status on Beatport and kept a position in the Deep House chart for almost a year consistent. It turned into a worldwide hit, played on dance floors as well as radio, receiving huge support from the biggest DJs in the scene who included the track in their set.
With follow-up track ‘Frequency’ (a collab with TAI), Watermät moved into a more deep and darker sound, but remaining catchy, creative and massive. Tracks ‘Portland’ (alongside Moguai), ‘All My Love‘ and ‘Empire’ were released after that, all played by the biggest DJs out there, followed by late 2016-hit ‘Fade’, turning into another popular DJ tool for many.
Underlining the start of his 2017 season, the Frenchman now delivers his brand new single ‘Won’t Stop‘. It’s an overwhelming piece of deep house, featuring the characteristic Watermät sound blended with energetic samples and the upbeat vocals of Kelli-Leigh. It’s cool, it’s massive, and it’s destined to dominate festivals this season.
DJ support has been huge as well, including the likes of BBC jocks like Danny Howard and Mistajam, as well as artists like Oliver Heldens, Martin Solveig, Don Diablo, The Magician, Felix Jaehn, Robin Schulz, Lost Frequencies, Tiësto, Martin Garrix, Fedde le Grand and many more.
