Ten of the best Snake Sex tracks selected by David Löhlein

David Löhlein is king of the ‘snake sound’, a distinctive streak of techno that is sugar coated with sultry and sexy grooves. For those of you who don’t know, David has spent the last few years rising up through Stuttgart’s renowned electronic music scene – honing his unique but spellbinding genre of techno. Balancing production and mixing, the young German also boasts his very own label and party called Vision Ekstase, an outlet designed to convey his personal vision of music and life in general. With high-octane releases already unleashed from the likes of Rove Ranger and Fabian Wegmeth, the imprint is definitely one to look out for as David continues his ascent into the very upper echelons of the international techno scene. One hugely popular hit released on the label in 2019 was “Altai”. Hailed by many as one of the techno tunes of the year, the track received support from a slew of esteemed artists from around the globe and with a set of captivating visual to match – cemented David’s name as one of the most exciting techno prospects to date.

With releases so far on the likes of SK_eleven, Counter Pulse, Mekanika Recordings and KEY Vinyl, the German maestro is now set to drop his debut full-length project Via Taya. Releasing via Vision Ekstase, David continues his legacy of intricate textures and hypnotic soundscapes, serving up eight tracks of lush, sultry techno. The LP is refreshingly dynamic and cohesive listen described as, “a hopeful and melancholic rebellion with a notoriously sexy streak.”
