HNTR has made a splash with his recent releases on mau5trap and will have you “Searching for Self” with this fresh fall mix.
While Hunter Siegel has carved out space in the scene with his releases since 2013, the recent shift for the Canadian artist that embraces darker techno soundscapes as HNTR has allowed him further explore his sonic reaches. The past few years have seen him release a flurry of tracks under the alias on his imprint, No Neon – and after gaining praise from deadmau5 in 2020 it was only a matter of time before he appeared on mau5trap.
That moment arrived back in May of this year when HNTR teamed up with Elliot Moss to release “Shadows in the Dark” on the renowned label. This melodic house and techno track quickly stole the hearts of those who listened and left them craving for more from the mind of this talented producer. Now, that time has come as he’s returned to mau5trap for his latest track, “Searching for Self.” This time around, HNTR has looked to Tribe Alexander to provide the hypnotizing vocals as he leads listeners on a journey into the techno realm with a touch of progressive influence along the way.
“My buddy Tribe sent me about 12 vocal demos, this was the second one I listened to and I was instantly hooked by the entrancing repetition of the vocal,” HNTR said about the track. “It grabbed me and spoke to me instantly, I wanted to try to use that same feeling in the production to help amplify that feeling of searching for something.”
Celebrating the release of “Searching for Self,” HNTR spun up a mix to celebrate the beginning of the fall season and help usher in the cooler months. This hour and a half ride is filled with a plethora of his originals and curated selections from the likes of Charles D, Pryda, Avision, Maceo Plex, Victor Ruiz, and more to further emphasize the gray skies and rainy nights ahead.
