Pawas & Schaffhäuser deliver a proper slo-mo deep house groover, which comes with a stellar re-work by the Dutch Nuno Dos Santos (former resident of Amsterdam’s Trouw) and a funky swirling Patrick Zigon remix.

„Hunt“ is the first collaboration of long time friends Pawas Gupta and Mathias Schaffhäuser. It all began with Pawas' epic instrumental version of the track which inspired Mathias to add some vocals. Then the both edited and produced the vocal version together, and gave the vocals to Cologne's rising KOMPAKT star, Gregor Schwellenbach, to add a Rhodes improvisation. This recording was again edited and arranged by Pawas and Mathias and made the „Rhodes Jam“ to an incredibly nice and intimate variation of the tune. WARE records' veteran Rudolfo Irving („Disco til You Die“) at last pushed the track's hedonistic elements and beamed it onto the contemporary disco dancefloor.

In the electronica circuit, DJ and producer Pawas Gupta needs no introduction. His music resonates his journey back from his early days as a DJ in India to turning independent producer in Germany. From his classical roots in tabla and percussion to his deep, Detroit influence in deeper house,techno and minimal, Pawas has carved his niche. He released on Spectral Sound, Night Drive music, Mood Music and Brut! - just to name a few. Current releases and remixes on Tulipa, PNN, EevoNext and Techfui*.

Mathias Schaffhäuser’s around in the techno, house and minimal scene since 1994 when he debued on Definitive Records. He later appeared on Mo's Ferry Productions, Tic Tac Toe Rec., BluFin Records, Force Inc., Adjunct, Lebensfreude and many others. He is the founder and owner of WARE records, where his clubhit „Hey Little Girl“ was released in 2001.
Current album: "RE:4 - Selected Remixes Vol. 4" (BluFin Rec.), upcoming releases and remixes on Snork Entertainment, Treibjagd Rec., White Mouse Records and many others.
