Coming straight outta Hamburg (Germany,) Marco “Tensnake” Niemerski is dance music’s man of the moment.

With Tensnake, an it-producer tag makes sense. He’s got the underground cred (thanks to original productions and remixes,) pop radio play in England, and now a big-label double-CD compilation. Tensnake’s no joke.

However, we all know how this works. Winds of favor will soon blow in another beat-maker’s direction. Though, in this case, I get the feeling that Tensnake’s not going to disappear.
