Dmunsch (aka Alexander Diemunsch) joined forces with his friend and funk/disco producer UnionSteve (aka Steven De Bondt) and released a new track: ‘We Own The Summer’. The song landed in the Top 3 of the Mid-Year Song Contest by Claudia eRecords and is available now on all major streaming platforms.
We all love some good old fashion feel-good music once in a while. Dmunsch & UnionSteve took good care of that by combining a modern-day house beat with some funky 80's style guitar and great vibing vocals by Florian F, a professional Romanian singer and Songwriter.
Great ideas don't come every day. But when they do, it's usually out of a sudden. This time was no different: During a day of jamming, Dmunsch came up with some happy summer chords and a catchy whistling tune. UnionSteve caught the vibe and joined in with a magically complimentary guitar melody. When one of them shouted randomly “Because we own the summer!”, they knew that a new track was born.
Dmunsch started producing at the age of 12 when his dad installed Fruity Loops, a digital audio workstation. He was hooked from day one and blessed with a father who did not care about school results but took the individual passions of his son very seriously.
The best term to describe Dmunsch's music is “melodic house”. He uses elements of Deep House, Disco House, EDM and even Progressive House, without committing to any of these genres, as long as it creates a vibe of carefreeness, euphoria and happiness. Dmunsch was influenced by various electronic acts such as Avicci, Disclosure, DJ Licious and Purple Disco Machine. After years of practicing, experimenting and just enjoying himself, he released his first singles Moving On in July 2019 (feat. Marcelo Moncada) and Wild Tonight in April 2020 (feat. TG Music).
UnionSteve has been in the industry much longer and was exposed to various music styles. After getting his first guitar at the age of 18, he started to play the piano, the bass, the drums and he performed in several new wave and metal bands. Although, since discovering electronic music in the early 2000’s, he completely changed course. He has been working with Belgian electronic acts like DK ESP, No Comment, DJ Liberty and produced several tracks for different artists that landed in the Dance Top 30 of Belgium. He also performed as resident DJ in Versuz, the biggest dancing club in Belgium at the time. In recent years, he decided to fully commit to music production and working on his own projects. His music is heavily influenced by the 70's/80's music and genres like funk, disco and lounge.
During the lockdown, both Dmunsch and UnionSteve have been spending their time to write and produce new music, which will be released in the next couple of months.
