Swiss producer Da Funk, aka Daniel Kneubühler, has been making electronic music for over 15 years, and has just marked his return to Anjunadeep with a double hit of melodic house goodness. The dreamy laidback cruise that is "Smug" contrasts brilliantly with the more energised "Don't Let Go", packed with rich interlocking melodies and a subtle piano motif.
To celebrate Da Funk's return to Anjunadeep he took some time out of the studio to put together this mix for us, featuring "Don't Let Go" along with tracks from the likes of Justin Martin and Kyodai, and Anjuna artists Beckwith and Andrew Bayer.
We also caught up with Daniel for an Interview about the mix, his EP, his influences, and his dream party.
The twinkling of stars on a balmy night, The gabble of geese as they take flight, A passionate look in your lover's eye, The graceful ballet of a butterfly.

Episode 012 | May 20th, 2010 | Da Funk & Jon Silva (Free Download)
Today, Open House brings you exclusive sets by two artists who are synonymous with quality House Music…
The first hour is brought to you by Da Funk – The Swiss producer/DJ discovered the scene as a teenager nearly 20 years ago,
and has been involved ever since. He started Acryl Music in 2004 which prides itself on deep, techy, forward thinking & innovative House music –
and if you are into quality deep, then you are likely to have heard his work.
The show’s closing hour is mixed by German production master Jon Silva. Also a veteran to the scene,
Jon has been involved with the production and distribution of quality deep and tech house since the late 80’s
and has a pile of 12 inch records to his name. In 2001 he developed his own imprint called Pesto, which first influenced my taste in deeper shades of house music. Enjoy!
