for phonicas landmark 20th release on the main label we go back to a classic from the same year the shop opened stereofuses casino ep, originally released on berlin label salo in 2003. the casino ep marked the first collaboration between martin wörner & thorsten diegel as stereofuse. they followed it up with a string of other 12inches for other labels but its this initial 12inch that has been fetching high prices second-hand as one of the most sought after releases on salo and for very good reason. a timeless ep sitting somewhere between house and techno (before tech-house became a disputed tag-line!) with the likes of ricardo villalobos & craig richards playing it regularly in their sets.
mathame s highly-anticipated -nothing around us- arrives on afterlife recordings. the richly talented duo mathame featured on the second realm of consciousness compilation and have since been regulars in the sets of tale of us with some sought-after, unreleased tracks. this ep is a bold statement that crystallises the well-deserved excitement around mathame.

external assessment vs. self-conception by robag wruhme: people always think, im that serene and quiet guy, but actually i’m quite a noisemaker. could be that the majority of the material he put out in recent years, most notably the thora vukk album, led to the overall apprehension of robag being the virtuoso of everything subtle, enigmatic and tenderly melodic. well, thats far from being a misconception, but still just one side of the coin. the other side is embossed with his most current productions, consolidated to a double ep, captioned with the enchanting name wuzzelbud ff. wait a second wuzzelbud devoted fans will instantly prick up their ears. we’ve heard that before. back in 2004 robag wruhme released his first longplayer named wuzzelbud kk. as theres no such scenario robag might be running out of stream-of-consciousness turned nonsense titles for his music, this must be a vocabulary intersection linking the early days of his career with its status quo. and it is. wruhme presents wuzzelbud ff as the stylistic follow-up to his debut album, showcasing a sound he commits has been neglected for too long. wruhme cuts to the chase: i wanted to put out some straightforward music for the dancefloor, something for the primetime. well, for the primetime of my sets, at least.

dj koze might be one of the worlds best producers, but above all hes a dj, and it’s his dj ear that governs. just as in a great set, so with his releases: seeing aliens came out of nowhere, a big buzzing beast of a track, to announce that koze was back on the scene and prime everyone for the coming album, knock knock. but now that koze has your attention, it’s time to remind everyone what’s most important about club music, pull things back, take a turn to the left, and get deep into the groove. thus pick up: the second single from knock knock is 100% pure groove, doubly so in the extended 12inch version. in a sense its incredibly familiar it is essentially a filter disco record, very close to something you could imagine coming out of paris around the turn of the millennium. but of course, this is koze. nothing is normal or familiar in his world, and hes taken this most foundational of clubland staples into new territory
reinier zonneveld s filth on acid label comes ready with a first ever album only 18 months after launching. in that time it has released music from big names like carl cox, gabriel ananda, bart skils, pig&dan, emmanuel top, coyu and many more, and this standout full length comes from mees salomé. it explores melodic and immersive techno, is entitled big thoughts like elephants and has 12 tracks that really journey into many different moods and grooves and the whole thing plays out with a real sense of musicianship that leaves an indelible mark.
afterlife recordings continues its focus on emerging talent with the first solo ep of aether, following his collaboration with mind against on -solaris- and a track on the realm of consciousness compilation. from the textured atmospherics, harmonies and innovative sound design, it’s clear aether has found his voice already. balanced between the powerful, emotive techno afterlife is known for and more introspective experimentation, the three tracks share a tonal richness and patient headspace, lending themselves to the dreamy hours on the dancefloor.
the first in a smash bomb trilogy of 12” monster dance floor madness. s.a.m. goes deep and groovy with the a-side track philokalia. it s a lush but powerful 909 driven journey with a power climax with stabby melodic synth strings reminiscent of underground resistance. the b-side features a unique exploration into the use of ravy armand van helden-esque sounds mixed with a powerful simple beat and melodic synths and a whispering voice. two tracks that has already seen support from raresh, mandar, matthew dekay and more this summer.
giuliano lomonte is back on his own imprint and straight to the point with tho original cuts. there is no doubt the distinctive bassline on a1 skyline will be stuck in your head long after the record is over and the deep and driving after hour vibes on b1 aquarium will keep the dance floor moving until the lights come on.
fresh names to visionquest, but certainly not new to the game, more than material is the promising new project between two bonafide french selector statesmen who collectively boast decades of dancefloor and studio science: jedsa soundorom and gauthier dm. launching their new alias earlier this year on zingiber audio, their signature has been tangible from the off, deep weighted grooves, warm dynamics and total immersion.

the timeless classic that is energy 52s >cafe del mar<, first released in 1993, has been rejuvenated and re-invented with 2 brand new remixes from germanys leading beat scientist ricardo villalobos. mysterious like a deserted bay at midnight, and blissful like the balmy white sands of ibizas hidden beaches, ricardos main mix snakes and meanders over 9 minutes of pure minimalist magic. filtering and reducing the originals main theme and bass pattern, a purely electronic interpretation is formed with ultra deep kick drums, and silky, woody textured percussion
after ugur projects great success on subotnik, the ostwind guys presents another 2 track 10inch weapon from this sympatic turk based in istanbul. diren & gezi are two tracks made for the dj and the crowd. diren comes with his deep moving bass and nice minimalistic clicking heads which reminds us on the up to date mini tech sound. the hook of gezi speeks for itself, combined with a forward going groove, this track was made to rock! a great new spezi, without many rethoric, just to the point.

up next on trouble maker we have got some intergalactic riddims courtesy of newcomer cosmic weirdos - extra terrestrial. the aptly named >renegade< keeps things cool on the inside and rowdy on the outside....somewhere between electro & techno this is the track nasa have been trying to discover for the past decade. >satisfaction< takes us on a trip around jupiter and finds itself disco dancing with unidentified alien lifeforms. on the remix we have got someone who definitely knows a thing or two about inter-dimensional space travel - mr carl finlow aka random factor aka silicon scally - who serves up exactly the kind of quality you would expect from the captain of the starship enterprise. the truth is out there...
singularity beginnt und endet auf der gleichen note: der emotionalen ehrlichkeit. hopkins, beeinflusst von jahrelangen erfahrungen mit meditation und transzendenz, bewegt sich durch ein universum, das sich langsam aufbaut, immer weiter ausdehnt und dann wieder zu einem winzig kleinen punkt schrumpft. nahtlos geht es dabei von rauem techno zu choralen melodien, von solo-piano etappen zu psychedelischem ambient. wo immunity sich in die dunkle realität einer epischen club nacht stürzte, erkundet singularity die dissonanzen zwischen urbanem leben und grüner natur, die verbindung von geist, klang und umwelt und vertont so die verschiedenen geistigen zustände, in denen hopkins sich während des schreib und aufnahmeprozesses befand. limitiertes blaues 180 gramm doppel-vinyl im klappcover, downloadcode inklusive.
this is tier’s first release and we just started levelling different stages with our friends ion ludwig and direkt. that being said, tier it’s a music label showcasing talent. in this journey we want to take everybody who fits in the same sound and shares same ideas as ours
25 jahre kompakt sind kein grund sich aufzuregen. aber dennoch ein schöner anlass, einen gelassenen blick auf die lage der elektronischen musik zu werfen. denn der globale minimal-techno, in seinen unterschiedlichen spielarten, hat sich bekanntlich längst als beste tanzmusik der welt etabliert. recht so. was nun? gar nichts. weitertanzen.
solomun, gründer von diynamic music, gigant der underground-szene und dj- und produzenten-koryphäe, liefert seine erste ep seit drei jahren ab, mit der er gleichzeitig auch den 100. release seines hamburger labels feiert, das sich seit der gründung 2006 zu einem der erfolgreichsten und beliebtesten underground-labels der welt entwickelt hat. während der titeltrack einen eindrucksvollen meilenstein darstellt, ist -dre- eine widmung an den frühen west-coast-sound, den ikonen wie nwa, 2pac, snoop dogg, warren g und natürlich dr. dre populär machten, und auf -ich muss los- zeigt solomun in einer fesselnden industrial-grundstimmung (s)eine dunklere seite für das frühe morgenstunden-set.

one of stephan and marc s biggest tunes ever, kerberos comes along with brand new remixes. diynamic s solomun teams up for the first time with johannes brecht and their debut convinces with driving beats, fresh sounds and a composition of synth lines which won t leave your brain anymore. on the flip side you can find two versions by andré hommen, who has been responsible for countless club weapons on labels like objektivity, poker flat and these eyes plus dublin s poster boy matador who recently delivered a master piece with his legendary remix of oxia s „domino“.
elision imprint kicks things off for their first release with heavyweight nima gorji. hypnotic atmospheres are underpinned by a foundation that keeps on rolling, while distant celestial resonances and intriguing vocal reflections consolidate the tight, percussive groove. varhat’s remix builds on some primary motifs from gorji’s track and deeply integrates with an up-front bassline that’s here to take names, not prisoners. east end dubs brings a mesmerising contrast with his complimentary and immersive approach that precisely rounds off elision 1.
om:nia is a record label for artists we believe in to release a wide variety of music, everything from psychedelic jazz to drum & bass, threading a flow and feeling which will connect all the sonics together.
our first release is by one of our favourite artists and genius musician, stl. we spoke to stephan in great length about our concept and idea for the label, after some time he sent us these specific tracks. manoeuvring along dubby and dusty grooves, with dreamy melancholic ambient textures and a epic 17 minute -untitled dubscape-. this record is as much to dance too in a club as it is to listen too at home.

with the release of this ep ,influential parisian producer d’julz establishes the launch of new label jv in collaboration with highly esteemed french yoyaku team. jv is set to evolve with d’julz showcasing his own productions while bringing in masterful talents to collaborate, and with the music policy being very much open, it’s guaranteed to be a consummate source of electronic music. this two-tracker ep kicks off with ‘chaplin bong’, a euphonic groove-packed house cut that is sheer liquid perfection evolving with a combination of dubby techno stabs penetrating a rolling disco bassline. ’j’y vais’, which translates to “i go”, is a deep and bass-heavy old school track that’s hewn from chicago influences. apropulsive, sheen-polished dancefloor gripper.
psp-dancer : the name says it all. this song is about electronic music between past and present, hyper funky, a glitter ball full with memories between flared pants and hedonism and yet straight forward for the year 2018. that s no surprise as for decades it would have been hard to imagine the rhine-main house and techno scene without frankfurt bedrocks pauli steinbach, sascha dive and patrick kunkel, not least because of their cocoon affinity. patrick kunkel and pauli steinbach take out the acid disco hammer full with endorphine acceleration towards dance floor. deep vibes recordingsimpresarios sascha dive and pauli steinbach form a disco reverb mix with a house-like depth between wild pitch and balearics, with kinky disco elements shimmering through again and again. try to take it high

the third and last part of the outstanding 2010 compilation 12inch series celebrating one decade of dial records. pigon open the single with an awesomly deep and reduced techno mover. newcomer john roberts continues what he started with his work on laid and john dalys feel label: lovely house music with a touch real instrument music. another highlight of the jubilee compilation is the ultradeep >new heaven & earth< by christian naujoks, who presents his very first house tune. the 12inch series ends with the star of the moment pantha du prince who just released his third album. another pure love issue!
dj koze doesnt aim for technical perfection for its own sake, but rather to serve the purpose of giving birth to great music. on his debut >rue burnout ep< from his own pampa label, he plays with finesse and sophistication, and implicitly understands the importance of subtlety, leading from dreamy and restrained parts to a noisy frenzy at the end.

supported by stephan bodzin, phonique, afrilounge, kombinat100. was hat ein am bosporus ansässiger liebhaber von punkrock, krawallmädels und katzen mit dem mecklenburger label acker records gemeinsam? richtig: eine vorliebe für anregend knackige tanzmusik, die sich selbst nicht zu ernst nimmt und vermutlich gerade daher so erfrischend anders und eigenständig ist. mit un chien andolou präsentiert sarp yilmaz eine akustische fortsetzung des sommers, zusammen mit lässigen beats bestimmen hier sonnige gitarrenakkorde, temperamentvolle kastagnettensounds und ein arabisch anmutender gesangsfetzen die stimmung. eine remixtechnische steilvorlage für eule:nhaupt & molle:nhauer, deren version sich durch den unverkennbar erdigen wupp im bassbereich, treibende offbeat-akkorde und dezenten bläsereinsatz auszeichnet. mit schneidigem funk und einer gehörigen prise minimal house repräsentiert the way you move die ackertypische abwechslung auf der vorliegenden platte. diesem anspruch wird auch der mollono.bass remix gerecht, der sich während der ersten takte nah an der atmosphäre des originals hält, dann jedoch mittels exzentrisch bis mysteriös anmutender pianoklänge in hypnotische tiefen eintaucht
after ellen alliens album >dust< kicked up a lot of the same in 2010, it was only a matter of time until the right remixers for the album were found. no less than the creme de la creme of today s house scene was allowed to have their way with these tracks. and the results are more than fitting. although we have already burned a full-length cd containing all of the remixes they created, we are not planning on leaving the vinyl-loving faction (or whats left of them) out in the cold either. this 12 inch features three powerful club tracks from three outstanding remixers. each unrivalled in their own space.
for the first time on this planet dial owner lawrence shows up on an excursion to his beloved pampa imprint. the double feature >kurama” presents two deepy enchanting anthems, a timeless vision of love. after touring around the globe with his new label mate dj koze since ages, having the most successful release in dial history with kosis efdemin remix, sharing music with each other like crackbrained, it is not a big surprise for lawrence to occur with two of his best pieces on pampa records. well known for his releases on mule electronic, ghostly international, styrax and his own imprints smallville, dial and laid, it was his first mix cd on cocoon >timeless< which made lawrence put some cats among the pigeons. with the new pampa again he has proved that the holy temple of deepness has to invite some flawy hypnotists once in a while to get clouded and shaken. the number 09 is dedicated to two most famous experiences in japan: the kurama mountain in kyoto, one of the most amazing places on earth, and oolong high, one of the most amazing drinks on earth- cold oolong tea on the rocks with a zip of japanese shochu liquor. after koze and lawrence had another few of these beverages again they started dreaming of this wonderful release
diese perle aus dem kalkbrennerschen katalog wird von den beiden berliner techno / house-legenden dj clé und mike vamp in exzellenter art und weise in die gegenwart transportiert. begleitet von einem epischen streicherarrangement, gelingt hier ein komplett neues arrangement der originalelemente auf basis der bekannten hookline.
paul kalkbrenner veröffentlichte 2012 mit das gezabel eine erste sehr erfolgreiche single aus dem album guten tag. fuer das im sommer 2014 anstehende remix album haben sich nun die wahlberliner pan-pot, die paul kalkbrenner im jahre 2013 auf tournee begleitet haben, daran gemacht das gute stueck im remixgewandt zu veredeln. das ergebnis ist klassischer pan-pot style wie man ihn liebt, das heißt eleganter high-end produzierter, direkter techno ohne schnoerkel und beschoenigungen. die einpraegsame melodiefuehrung des originals wird geschickt zitiert und scheint aus dem heftigen bass- und beat-konstrukt des remixes immer wieder hervor.

alr001 is tech-house based track features one late-night club cut of pure, padded brilliance. the original mix is a meditative, as it blissfully sways between softly thumping bass and euphoric synth snippets. hamburg based well known dj cess (formally from also known from cocoon booking) re-edited the track for dj s with a male spoken monologue that, despite being a tad pretentious, actually kind of weirdly works. fittingly, its the most dance floor appropriate of the bunch and would slip nicely into a bleary-eyed, 6am sunrise set.
satoris latest album in between worlds gets its second round of remix treatments. first mix is coming from satoris good friend and former release partner el mundo who turned compulaire into a hypnotical tech house version. second is just emma and the duo made a perfect dancefloor suitable mix of ink & orange sky, likewise britta arnold did this to compulaire and spiced it with a acidish bassline. norwegian duo of norway have chosen tuti and mixed it with groovy and relaxed beats perfect for the morning after hours. for the way home alexander christians remix of ehsan is the best companion. last but not least we have joney who turned pink & orange sky into a powerful crossover mix omewhere between broken beats and electronica.
