Dutch producer and deep house artist Eelke Kleijn has just released his latest single, ‘Punta Cana’, on his DAYS like NIGHTS imprint. The release falls as the second single off his impending ‘Moments Of Clarity’ project and lands in the midst of his North American tour, which has stops in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Mexico City, San Francisco and Burning Man this summer. Look out too for a Tomorrowland performance tonight from the Rotterdam-based producer.
‘Punta Cana’, which took form while Eelke Kleijn was visiting the Dominican town of the same name two years ago, is centred around a kick that demonstrates his ability to layer synth builds and vocal samples atop bass and percussion.
Eelke Kleijn: “I wrote the melody for the track while I was in Punta Cana for a gig in 2016. It sounded very different at that time, but I kept coming back to the main lead because I liked it so much. It has that sort of underground epicness that I really enjoy. The track went through multiple different versions before it turned out the way it is now. It’s been a steady end-of-the-night banger in all my sets of the last year!”
With 15 years of composing to draw upon, Eelke has found success on and off the dancefloor in creating club tracks as well as Hollywood soundtracks. In addition to crafting releases for motion pictures like ‘Parker’, ‘The Crossing’, ‘Rush’ and ‘This Means War’, his bootleg of ‘The Hanging Tree’ from the film ‘The Hunger Games’ apparently launched the veteran producer to international stardom.
