THREE WORDS - FEEL MY NEEDS!

Weiss - Feel My Needs (Extended Mix) (youtube.com)

Weiss is most innovative when he’s untethered from the conventions
and trends of Dance Music production. Although he embodies the spirit
of classic House Music forms like old school Jackin and 90’s era
Chicago House, his underlying philosophy is quite simple - construct a
beat that taps into the primal and speaks to the universal love of dance
shared around the world. Growing up in the UK, Weiss accumulated a
diverse range of musical tastes and influences, from Metallica to
Motown and Phil Collins to Disco. An apprentice to Massive Attack’s
Musical Engineer James Day early in his career, Weiss was able to
draw from that deep well of inspiration and expert technical training to
produce what would become a trove of instantly recognizable classics
and unique, chunky, club rollers.

Weiss’ initial success as a producer was immediate and profound. His
hit single “My Sister”, released in 2013, hit the top of the Beatport
Charts and stayed there for four months. Assisted by a generous
amount of support from BBC Radio 1, his sounds caught the attention of
industry heavyweights like Annie Mac, Groove Armada, Green Velvet,
Loco Dice, and Kenny Dope. After several years of successive hit radio
singles like his 2016 “You’re Sunshine”, which premiered on Danny
Howard’s BBC Radio 1 show and netted a spot at the top of the
Beatport charts, Weiss’ profile continued to expand. It wasn’t long
before his musical contributions and electrifying performances began to
transform the modern House Music landscape.

Overwhelming support poured in from artists including Gorgon City,
Eats Everything, Jax Jones, Duke Dumont, MK and Claude Vonstroke,
and through a wildly successful career punctuated by remixes for Kylie
Minogue, Robyn, Calvin Harris and Claptone, Weiss has found himself
amongst House Music’s elite sharing stages with legends including
Todd Terry, Armand Van Helden and Pete Tong. His 2018 single “Feel

My Needs”, netted an immense amount of critical acclaim, earned the
#1 spot on 5 international music charts, as well as a spot on the Radio 1
A-List and was voted DJ Magazine’s “Best of British Winner” for best
single of 2018.

In 2019, WEISS signed a landmark record deal with Island Records in
the UK and saw his collaboration “I Could Get Used To This” gain BPI
Certified Status, it has since gone on to become Platinum Certified with
Feel My Needs achieving Gold status in 2022.

WEISS has circled the globe countless times to complete tours
worldwide, in 2023 he embarked on tours of North America and Oceania
covering 30 dates across 7 weeks including performances at EDC in
Mexico City, Electro Zoo in New York, All My Friends in Los Angeles,
Harbour Life in Sydney, Petting Zoo in Melbourne and many more,
ending the year at London’s coveted Brixton Academy on New Years
Eve.
