German record label OFF Recordings is built on the belief that it publishes tracks that make an audience get onto the dancefloor and get OFF. Largely influenced by classic house and techno, Andre Crom’s imprint has contributed successful and driving releases time and time again. The next release is yet another dose of honest house music supplied by various artists who have made impeccable tracks relevant today and well into the future seasons. Featuring the label owner himself Mr. Crom is accompanied by top producers Wildkats, Jesse Perez, and Walker & Royce. Having already supplied the foundation for success to countless producers in the past, it isn’t surprising to see Andre taking interest in these fresh names.

Kicking off the release with a familiar vocal sample, Andre Crom’s Shout presents a deep bassline and minimal groove that has everything it needs to get dancefloor seekers into the groove. You Must Be So Mean by the Wildkats is a more laidback funk-tool with a cool deep flow and a break that clears the air before submerging back into the chilling deep energy. For a more raw and dirty sound, Jesse Perez invites you to check out his Hialeah House Party. This old school, rough chunker features his trademark freaky vocal sounds. Another past inspired destroyer, Walker and Royce deliver a massive dose of 80’s synth funk with Connected, a clean pop-influenced monster with sounds the duo have been known to be inspired by in the past. Widely smooth and varying tracks supply a selection for everyone as the Collective Works series continues to supply upfront dance music for eager ears.
