Single of the Week: Dina Summer “Hide & Seek – Club Edit”

Our featured single this week is “Hide & Seek – Club Edit” by Dina Summer, the collaborative project by Bavarian-born producer Kalipo and the DJ/producer couple Local Suicide.

The track features on their forthcoming EP ‘Hide & Seek‘, due to be released on February 23rd, 2024 through Iptamenos Discos. Pre-order your copy here.

The EP’s title track ‘Hide & Seek’, shining and ’80s reminiscent, is a radiant and romantic love letter to disco balls, laser beams, smoke machines and hazy dreams. A blissful and invigorating spirit pulses through the song which elicits the feeling that you are floating up into the air, breaking through a sea of grey clouds to reveal the sunshine beyond.

The club edit of ‘Hide & Seek’, gives the track an entirely different feel. The same lyrics now have a newfound sense of urgency. It’s darker and biting – a thrilling counterpart to the original version.

About Dina Summer

After performing on local radio stations as a teenager, Dina began making waves as one of the first female DJs in Thessaloniki while also pursuing her studies at University. She later moved to Berlin where she met her husband with whom she formed the duo Local Suicide. The powerhouse has made a name for themselves releasing on labels such as Eskimo Recordings, Lumière Noire, Ombra INTL, TAU & more. Through their exploits, Beatport declared them as one of the key figures in the uprising dark disco scene. Around 2013 they met Bavarian born Kalipo while raving at Rock am Ring festival. At the time he was performing at the festival with his band, Frittenbude who are famous in German speaking countries for their unique mix of electro, punk & rap.

It wasn’t until 2019 that the trio finally starting working on music together. The result is a unique blend of late ‘90s electro with elements of ’80s disco and new wave.
