Well, it's high time to get another episode of our sampler series revealed. The seventeenth edition allows us to listen to four outstanding tracks by such artists as Thomas Langner, Haze-M, Marcelo Nassi, and Craig Stewart.
Thomas Langner, who appears on the sampler as first with his tune "Another Day" is a Polish producer and DJ.

The second track belongs to Hazem Saklbi aka Haze-M. Hazem, who comes from Tunisia, began creating music at the age of 15. As soon as he defined his own sound, he has been focusing on producing music he fell in love with, namely deep house.
Marcelo Nassi, the composer of "Deep Moving", is considered as one of the most requested artists of the electronic scene in Sao Paulo. As a DJ and producer, with a born talent, Marcelo's career started in 1995, and since then he has been acquiring experience and professionalism during all these years.
