David Penn “Reaching Out”

Internationally acclaimed DJ, producer, and Defected House Master David Penn returns to the label with a distinct, deep house single. Over the course of his 25-year career the Spanish dance music icon has demonstrated his broad capabilities, from the Latin house grooves of ‘Esperanza’ and Defected smash hits ‘Nobody’ and ‘Push The Feeling’, to remixes of both classic and modern hits from Pete Heller, Candi Staton, and Purple Disco Machine.

With sets that prioritise live elements and crowd engagement lined up for summer 2023, this heavyweight performer will continue to impress at Defected Croatia and Ibiza. For his latest release, the Urbana Recordings label owner explores his range with Congolese vocalist Bemendé; ‘Reachin Out’ features the singer’s husky topline, conveying strength and pain in equal measure as understated piano chords contrast with bit-crushing sonic decoration, signalling a new direction for the world-class producer.
