In just a few months, Endor’s Defected debut ‘Pump It Up’ has gone from club track to chart hit, confirmed by playlist additions on BBC Radio 1, Kiss FM and most recently Capital. Signed to the label in September, the track also debuted in the UK Top 40 last week at #36, affirming its crossover success from the dancefloors of Ibiza, Brooklyn and more into new realms.
The Brighton born producer’s nature of working, fuelled by an appetite to try and create big dancefloor cuts, has apparently earned him high profile fans from Skream to Chris Lake, with a catalogue of releases stacking up in his name, but ‘Pump It Up’ has been Endor’s biggest release to date.
Now approaching 10 million streams, other highlights for the release so far include reaching #1 on Beatport and #3 on Traxsource, #2 in the Shazam UK Discovery Chart and being featured as BBC Radio 1’s Tune Of The Weekend.
Speaking to Magnetic Mag in October, Endor said: “The track seems to have had a great reaction, I couldn’t be happier with how it’s been received both online and on the dancefloors. I guess now that I’ve managed to elbow my way into the public consciousness, the pressure is on me to make some more tunes that bang harder and to show that I’ve got more in the locker.”
