today we once again celebrate the coming together of two of technos most legendary and respected figures for the next installment of their much lauded elements series - oliver huntemann & dubfire. as the series name alludes, aire is a track that harnesses elements from the previous brace of tracks and brings them together whilst adding a fresh touch of flair. irelands matador takes on the remix task, delivering two contrasting new versions. his beautifully deep dub mix is an understated, smooth and wondrous excursion while his main mix throws down its earth-moving kick drum throughout as he allows the original atmospherics and fx to playfully pierce the production.

andré winter delivers his second exclusive ideal audio release – dogma. it is dark, it is hypnotic, it is what we call modern techno music. on the a-side you can find the original, which amazes with the number of sequences, which mr. winter twists and turns.beats and rhythms clash one after the other creating a mysterious and threatening, yet curious atmosphere. just close your eyes and enjoy the mood ride. the b-side offers pan-pots treatment of the track. the remix is massive, somewhat housier and brings exciting sound effects to the surface. great work
