The percussive production, which showcases Wankelmut’s highly polished production skills, is met with an emotive lyric video which shows Mando Diaofrontman, Dixgård, pacing around a warehouse in a state of angst-based distress, hoping his love interest will return his calls. The raw emotion ofDixgård’s delivery adds a real brooding feel to the otherwise melodic release, which also features Wankelmut himself in the video.
The track became an instant summer anthem, with Wankelmut invited to curate his Radio 1 Essential Mix, receiving heavy support from BBC Radio 1 tastemakers Annie Mac and Pete Tong.
As adept at remixing as he is producing, the German has since reworked tracks by the likes of Hozier, and Lenny Kravitz, as well as gracing the stages of some of the biggest dance festivals in the world, including Ultra Music Festival and Tomorrowland in Belgium. His April release ‘Almost Mine’ feat Charlotte OC received support from Danny Howard, with a vibrant remix package delivered from Mat.Joe and Low Steppa.
Serving as a visual embodiment of his rich and smooth sound, ‘I Keep Calling’ demonstrates Wankelmut’s deft ability as a producer, with the official video out now!
