the next release on our label is coming from berlin based nick beringer and we are very happy to welcome him on board. we have been following his work for quite a while now, so we were more than happy to receive this demo from him. the three tracks that we have chosen are a bit different from his usual productions and are working well in different situations or hours of a set.
jaffa surfa also known as zoltan pal is hailing from hungary and has released a few records already on other labels like tape hiss for example that already caught our attention a bit earlier. therefor we were quite happy to receive a demo from him and we signed almost all the tracks that he sent us. three tracks aiming straight at the dance floor and we hope that you enjoy and play them as much as we do.
raum musik 104 is a various artists compilation that features exclusive tracks from all the labels key artists. federico molinari, john dimas, franco cinelli, lee burton and phil evans have released on our label before, but we also have three new artists on board this time. jorge savoretti has released the last single on our label before the compilation plus the two newcomers enrico mantini from italy and andy kolwes from cologne. altogether it forms a nice package to celebrate 20 years of raum musik that shows as well the different sides of our label and we hope that you enjoy the tracks as much as we do.
skipson returns on raum with his second single for our label. somewhere between detroit house, hip hop influences and loads of funk he is constantly managing to deliver his own unique and very characteristic sound. support comes from no other than mister no ears rob mello who is delivering one of his sought after no ears dubs. we hope that you enjoy as much as we do.
after having released >salson< on our 10 years raum compilation already, damian schwartz returns with his first solo single on our label. >pedro< which is also the title of this record is a deep techno track that is based on a hypnotic piano sequence. >badabambu< is more house orientated and like for >salson< damian gets support from guti who has played the synths for this tune. last but not least this release also features a remix of >pedro< by none other than daniel stefanik which is adding some more peak time flavour while still staying close to the original. enjoy !
incl incl. remixes by ricarco villalobos & dorian paic aka doric
klas henrik lindblad better known as sasse or freestyle man has been a friend of our label for many years and also released together with dorian for our raum musik compilation in 2005. soul sounds without any doubt still is one of his absolute masterpieces and he was never willing to do anything with it and just let it rest in peace until the idea came up to re release it for our label. usually we are not licensing or re releasing anything but sasse and especially this track of him definitely deserve it. as it is also our 20 years anniversary we got one of our key artists on board that has been playing the track again a lot recently and that also immediately liked the idea of remixing this track and this is the result now. we are happy to present you the original track of sasse plus two remixes by our dear friend ricardo villalobos and label head dorian paic together. enjoy !
ltd 2018 repress
after delivering a remix for miss fitz and releasing the project rirom together with roman fluegel on our label, ricardo villalobos finally releases his first full solo single for raum musik under his villalobos moniker. two masterpieces of cutting edge electronic music done in a way that only he can do it. we are more than happy with this release and it will be released only on vinyl.
lee burton is the next artist on raum musik and this is his first single for our label. lee is hailing from greece and we were quite happy to receive some demo tracks of him, as he caught our attention already a while ago. his productions are more house related, but always with a nice, modern twist. his powerful sound and also his very well structured sound design could easily be described as his signature and it s definitely worth keeping an eye on him.
ltd 2017 repress !! maxim donskoi and levi verspeek are both hailing from amsterdam. they bonded over their mutual love for intricate and layered house music and started producing tracks together under their makcim and levi moniker. soon they found out that makcims strong musical vision and levis productional finesse make for a combatant combination of ideals that resulted in the daan de pup ep
our next release is coming from phil evans. phil is also part of the new generation of dj’s and producers that are hailing from the rhein-main area around frankfurt. together with his best mate markus sommer he is running the label pager records. he caught our attention already a while ago and so we were quite happy to receive the tracks for this ep from him. he has a lot of personality in his productions already and his musical range is also quite large going from hip hop to house, but also more stripped down stuff or chicago house references can be found in his music selection and influences. besides that he is a lovely and very sympathetic young man and so it is definitely worth keeping an eye on him, because he is on fire.
* no time to explain* was played by ricardo villalobos at dekmantel festival
raum musik 100 is coming from edgardo alonso better known as sakro. he is hailing from mexico and we have been following his work for quite some time now. therefor we are quite happy that we finally found the perfect match of tracks to put this single together. the title track of the ep „no time to explain“ already attracted a lot of attention during the summer when a handful of djs that were lucky enough to already have it, have been dropping the tune on some bigger stages and festivals and it quickly became a sought after track. we are very happy about our 100th release and as always we hope you enjoy the music as much as we do. cheers and happy birthday raum !
our fourth and also last release for 2016 is coming from john dimas. john is hailing from greece but is living in berlin at present. we have been following his productions for quite a while now and we are happy that we finally got him on board for our label. this ep contains three different tracks showing perfectly the versatility of johns productions and also at the same his skills of always adding that special dimas touch to his tracks.
the next release on our label comes from our dear friend franco cinelli from argentina. franco is one of the main artists and pioneers of electronic music in his country and also has been working as a dj outside of argentina for many years now. besides the fact that he is a very talented and super tight dj, franco also has been releasing some impressive music over the past years. we have been following his productions for quite a while and therefor we are super happy to finally welcome him on board of our label with this truly great release
after contributing a remix for our label in 2011 daniel stefanik now returns to raum with his first solo single under his new moniker dlsk.
the a side * sense of doubt* is a bit more stripped down and melodic, as the b side and also the title track of this release * subterraneans* is more of a jazzy house groove, that simply doesn’t stop rolling and keeps the tension with subtle variations and other nice little gimmicks. as always we truly hope that you enjoy these tracks as much as we do and we are happy to have daniel back on board as for sure he can be called one of germanys top notch producers.
ricardo villalobos returns on raum musik with his second solo single for our label. this time time both sides are featuring other artists though. the a side is based on a sample, taken from the track called * buffalo demon* which is from the album * miniatures* by the duo alog, that was originally released on rune grammofon in 2005. on the b side ricardo is featuring his friend jorge gonzalez, the former lead singer, main songwriter and sole composer of the chilean band los prisioneros that is currently the frontman of los updates. the result is a very nice ep and we are quite happy with this release.
labelowner dorian paic is teaming up with his good friend felipe valenzuela from chile. since more than a year they are producing and collecting tracks for their ep and came up with these two minimalistic house grooves. the title track of the ep -almost there- get s a nice rework by michael melchner.
the new year starts for raum with the second single by two of our key artists teaming up again, namely christian burkhardt and sascha dive. the a side is produced by sascha alone and is definately standing out from his more house related productions of the last months. halfway is a true peak time monster that already got deck sharks nervous throughout the end of last summer in a few sets of djs like ricardo villalobos or raresh for example just to name the most important ones.
julien bracht kommt aus frankfurt am main und hat vor kurzem begonnen seine ersten produktionen zu veröffentlichen. seit frühester kindheit interessiert er sich jedoch für drums und live percussion und wenn man eines seiner live sets verfolgt wird man schnell merken, dass er diese fähigkeiten auch gekonnt nutzt indem er eine bandbreite verschiedener live drums in seine live sets integriert. die a seite >taiko< sorgte auf der timewarp im märz bereits für einigen trubel und wir sind sicher, dass man von julien in zukunft noch einiges an spannenden sounds und rhythmen hören wird. watch out
big with mathias kaden, dorian paic, meat, robert dietz, chistian burkhardt.... the second release for this year is also coming from laurentiu gavrila better known as funk e. the tracks blew our mind right away and here is also another thought we would like to share with you for this series of two eps divided in part 1 and 2. string theory - 2 pianos that are in the same room, if u play one note at one of the pianos, the string with the very same note from the other piano will resonate as well. that string is the heart!
the first release in 2012 is coming from funk e better known as laurentiu gavrila hailing from romania.he just started to put out his first productions recently like for example on the desolat x mas sampler.his productions caught our full attention immediately though and we are pretty sure that you will hear a lot more interesting things coming fom this young man in the near future. he has his very own style of producing already and when you listen to his music you also might guess why he has chosen this artist name - the man for sure got the funk!
after he caught our attention several times with a string of releases on such labels as quintessentials for example, we are very happy to introduce skipson as a new artist on our label. his influences can be found somewhere between labels like classic or music for freaks for example. these influences combined with a great passion for detroit house from the likes of kdj or andres create the very own skipson sound that we like so much and that always shows his ability to add something unique to his productions.
christian burkhardt returns with his fourth solo single for raum musik. the title track of this ep which is called >bass horse< has been produced together with reuben woods from cape town better known as mey. if you listen to the tracks that are featured on this ep you will find out that all of them have a different mood but still they all got the non reversible burkhardt funk. all killer - no filler!
huge rmxs by reboot and maayan nidam!! this project is a new collaboration between mathias kaden and the tokyo based dj pi-ge aka yasuo takata. the track has been produced in japan and the vocals are sung by pi-ges girlfriend shoco. remix support is coming from reboot and maayan nidam and actually there are no more words necessary. welcome 2011 !
big with: robert dietz, markus fix, federico molinari, dorian paic, meat, vera, nick curly,à over the last couple of years christian burkhardt and sascha dive have shaped and created the sound of raum...musik like almost no other artist on our label. now the two of them are teaming up for our next single and like one would expect it from them they deliver 2 very nice tracks aiming straight at the dancefloor. nightflight on the a side is a bit more electronic and represents more the sound design of christian. >combination< on the b side which is also the title of this record is more sort of a stripped down house tool and therefor stands for saschas influences. together they form a nice mix including two of the main artists from our label. enjoy this combination...!
after almost a year in prison for shoplifting, laverne is finally out on probation and brings you an ep that moves from threatening messages (ass tosser) to valuable life lessons found in groove on & deep moves. the ep got full support in the penitentiary from the likes of slick rick, lil kim and a whole lot of bitches n hoes allegedly connected with the wu-tang. watch your back - the l train is comin!
big with dorian paic, meat, federico molinari, reboot. horacio ist ein neues projekt von massimo di lena, besser bekannt als massi dl, zusammen mit seinem partner dario di pace. die beiden stammen aus italien und die stücke auf dieser ep sind absolute party garanten. sie passen perfekt zur kommenden sommersaison und wir hoffen, dass sie euch genau soviel spass bereiten wie uns.

chupacabra is the new project of arno voelker and miguel ayala (known from precision & art of rollin). during their work at the freebase record shop both have developed a strong passion for house music and so they started releasing in that genre as well. here comes the first 3 tracker on raummusik with finest deep minimal techhouse and a federico molinari remix
