like all dj koze records, knock knock exists outside of trend and influence. in fact, it s a step further beyond: absolutely every single thing here, from grooves to voices to handclaps, is otherworldly and unique. which is not to say it is utterly alien abstraction, mind. there is still disco, there is still soul, there is still techno, there is still hip hop, there is still psychedelia – there are even wafts of easy listening, lost crackly thriftstore record memories and... sort of... indie rock – but though it may sound familiar, it never does what your brain thinks it s going to do.
ep number four of this series of eight remastered tracks with remix-tributes to the techno legend christian morgenstern is here, and kicks off with d_funcs remix of steigreider on side a. creating a warm grayscale atmosphere, the track is carried by a heavy sub kick groove thats saturated with the modern industrial energy that proves kowalski’s skills as a techno craftsman. as a contrast, jeroen searchs remix of aces high on b1 is a more minimal interpretation, carried by a slowly developing beat and playing skillfully with the most recognisable elements of the original. the final track, a remastered version of morgensterns lydia to the edge of panic is a timeless classic, painting a morgenstern-typical distant and dream like landscape and opening up into a widescreen chord progression, with an epic build up.
RELAX YOUR BODY (RICARDO VILLALOBOS REMIX) (180G VINYL)
12" Vinyl D05.12.16
limited edition, reissue, remastered, remix by ricardo villalobos 12inch deluxe sleeve with 3mm spine, custom inner-sleeve, ink stamp application, a3 poster, 180g vinyl. artwork: art direction by plusyes graphic design by plusyes illustration by luca zamoc. the first release of secondhand series on autum records: vinyl reissues of iconic tracks from the past, brought back to life through contemporary remixes signed by the most influential artists of the electronic scene. ricardo lends a hand for the first one.
for the third time adam proll has released a 12 for cocoon recordings. and just like in the two predecessors, >hummel< and >adamantido<, the native pole is at the pulse of time and, with >flight 407<, creates a beautiful and dreamy summer tech house track, which seems to be made for the forthcoming open air season. warm, soft beats are as skillfully and elegantly used as trippy half time snares and thus make the a side sparkle of life. in contrast to this, >abbadon< is more something for the neverending after hours of this summer. the warm and deep detroit sound reminds of sunsets at the beach and is bringing back this special feeling to the dance floor - may it be in frankfurt, berlin or everywhere else.
ISOLATION DIARIES (RICARDO VILLALOBOS AND BURNT FRIEDMAN REMIXES)
12" Vinyl NL23.11.17
ricardo villalobos remixes deardrum from alejandro mosso s album isolation diaries recently released on third ear. villalobos worked up a 40 minute jam from which this is a 9 minute section which moves from a gentle pattering of sounds into a full-on villalobos groove, taught and slinky at the same time, i.e. irresistibly funky. the jam then subsides into chattering noises before the groove begins again. burnt friedman s remix of isolation diaries is a slow burning super funky jam with classic burnt friedman dub elements laced through the track together with the melody twisted and phased. the closing track from the album, mounivers, completes this fine release.
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.
burger/voigt melden sich mit >roter platz< eindrucksvoll zurück. melodische musik die weniger die sinnentleerte tool-fraktion bedienen soll sondern vielmehr die musikalische qualität in den vordergrund stellt und damit vor allem frauenherzen auf der tanzfläche höher schlagen lässt
big with markus kavka, dubfire, aki bergen, andre kronert, feygin, sebastian roya, secret cinema, pierce, moodymanc and many more.
dont miss the next long awaited vinyl on night drive music. this time we gave the black gold to hypnos. hypnos (deepology, urbantorque, myhouse, box music) presents now his 2nd release on night drive music. he graduated from music school in guitar, and played keyboards in a rock band for a few years. he was member of the infamous >demoscene< in poland - an unofficial and underground group of like-minded people mixing music with street graphics. the original is a never ending dream between sweet deepness and techy elements. its hard to describe the tune. just listen please! remixes are coming from pawas, subsky and stefan mallmann.
peaktime goodness built for the dancefloor. >k5000< expect some manipulated beats with an amazing drive ending up with a climax of snares, this has all the right ingredients to make it another einmusik classic. we defy anyone to stand still when this one drops >ehrfurcht< has more epic proportions with delicate and subtle layers of melody washing around a threathening bassline... one hell of a mental track
following the s_w_z_k debut album, which came out on tresor records before the summer, david brown offers here further insights into the most recent developments of his new departure. receiving the help of long-time collaborator and friend richard davis, the duo continues its dive into the concrete and metallic landscapes found on their eponymous lp effort. the variant & empires ep however marks somewhat of a slight departure from the obscure experimental investigations previously undertaken. tc4 variant is a roaring number, aiming specially at the dancefloor and taking the duos energy to its highest point, while second city of the empire intimately unveils the deeper side of their enterprise.
amazing deep grooving 3 tracker. the first construct label release and the first release from swayzak & richard davis new project. this is a 50/50 co-production from swayzak and richard davis. remixes by the mole & hreno.
the latest gigolo release is one for the summer! aptly titled hot it comes courtesy of ivano coppola and christian prommer, the former being one of italia s most respected dj s and the latter being, amongst other things, one of the main collaborators for hells critically acclaimed album teufelswerk. taking a sample from willie ninjas classic record hot and building a track around the chords and the vocal leads us to our starting point ivano coppola plastic mix!
ivano coppola has been the resident dj at milan s plastic club since 1992, so it is fair to say that he knows what works on a dance floor, or, to use a popular phrase, what is hot and what is not. it is with this historical knowledge that we find the genesis of our track. i found it necessary to go back in the past, to start producing once again in a 90 style - using samples. the next step was to come back into the future and reach out to christian prommer, highly respected by many including ivan i consider (christian prommer) one of the best producers of the moment! he loved the idea, the remix was huge, and so we decided to co-produce the record. simple!!!
but, for christian this was more then a remix, hence the co-production credit! i liked the idea of translating an early 90 s house-music-sample in to a sample-style-percussive-techno-tune. lots of live played drums and percussion in this one, of course. i only later learned that the sample we used is from one of my house music heroes, maws louie vega. naturally the record found its way into the hands of gigolo in the best way possible, and in the tradition of such a great record label – i played it at the gigolo night in munich and hell came to me dancing and took the tune into his heart.
a rare release from one of minimal house and techno s most respected icons, thomas brinkmann. isch is a much sought after track taken from a record that has been out of print since many years. not many people know that this track was originally made for the mutek festival in 2002. out of respect we let mr. brinkmann choose his prefered remixer and we were more than happy when soulphiction aka jackmate (perlon, sonar kollektiv, philpot) took on the challenge. his remisch is nothing short of a future classic, maybe even his best rework to date. an essential release for your collection!!
dani casarano & felipe valenzuelas melisma imprint returns with opaco. the original mix by felipe venegas is very distinct with its wide open and subtle pads, which together with the floating groove sum up to a very relaxed and still demanding atmosphere. birdsmakingmachine in their remix shrink this up a bit in favour of a perpetual jack - -bmminimal- style so to say.
last part of the cliff unknown series! again a wonderfull timeless track from very well known artists ... maybe you realise them :) its an older track from this loved duo and they contribute it for this project - thanks one more time!

it s argentinian time for melisma - on the a-side federico molinari teams up tender vocals and piano with a nice acid touch in a slightly hypnotic way - -joan s field- has a classic chicago sound setup blended with the an hypnotic and repetitive element that makes some dances longer ones.
*cassandra* is a super deep and hypnotic cut that opens with a thumping kick and silky-smooth pads, with the techno innovator teasing out delayed vocal-like synth phrases that lock the listener in before a huge sub-bassline lands. dozzy focuses on these main intersecting elements which gradually evolve, topped off by rolling drums and razor-edged hi-hats. also on the release is *ii*, a slab of experimental sound design that swells and retracts, gurgling away to nothing and topping off an essential new chapter for the peerless techno craftsmen.
shirakura bevorzugt klare formen und sendet eine eindeutige botschaft vom anderen ende der welt: ihr sollt tanzen, schwitzen, alles geben. druckvoller, präziser & melodischer minimal der irgendwie anders kommt, und zwar verdammt gut !
pampa is a new label from old pals dj koze and marcus fink, dedicated to releasing club music that s seriously danceable without recourse to the tried and tested ingredients. a home for house and techno tunes that will conquer hearts and take root there forever, music that s brave and not afraid to break with convention
ark has got an eclectic and organic sound, something in between. from his origins as guitarist in a number of 80s funk bands, most notably trankilou, where he hooked up with the legend that is pepe bradock and onto the great matthew herbert & losoul with their first collaboration, belle lurette in 99. the alleluyark ep series from 2003 reaffirmed as his status as chief protagonist of experimental, groove led house and techno. his 2005 long player on perlon, caliente won him critical acclaim, which is furthered by his more recent works together with shalom (as shalark), krikor (as krikark), cabanne (as copacabannark), mikael weill (as les cerveaux lents) and dolibox. his cannon of remixes is as long as the channel tunnel, reworking the likes of stephen beaupre, mr. oizo, archive, mossa, salif keita, slabb, fym, robag wruhme
ein musikalischer fightclub der mit dj koze vs. station 17, robag wruhme & michael mayer 3 sieger auf einem gemeinsamen treppchen hervorbringt & dessen ausgangspunkt das liebevoll- ins- gehirn- geschissen- projekt von hamburgs haubitze dj koze ist
robag wruhme macht mal wieder sein herz auf. er schwelgt in erinnerung und transportiert diese in die zukunft! dash shopper ist ein echter hit für ganz besondere momente im club, wenn der schweiß anfängt zu trocknen, da die richtige balance aus tanzformidabler bewegung und verausgabung erreicht ist
supported by marco carola, rino cerrone and davide squillace !! markantonio (mkt, analytic trail) kickstarts this amazing 3 tracker with a full on groove for you to move those feet to. the additional tracks are profound crowd shakers with clever drum-programming and the trademark neapolitan, fresh groove!
re-release des legendären dj koze albums * kosi comes around* von 2005 jetzt endlich auch auf vinyl!
- das original album (auf kompakt) ist seit geraumer zeit nicht mehr erhältlich gewesen!
- eine schöne tour durch minimal klicker, chicago & techhouse & ambient klängen!!
- 1a für floor & ohr ... dicke empfehlung
sven weisemann who was recently very busy by providing remixes and tracks for the likes of house cafe music, styrax leaves, styrax, liebe*detail, rotary cocktail, freund der familie, progcity deep trax and meanwhile is now coming up with some fresh killer stuff for mojuba the musical place of origin. the a-side kiss of abana is a catchy dancefloor monster with banging percussive drums and trademark weisemann chords. the b-side amity seems to keep it cool in the beginning but thats only the prelude to a funky feast of deepness!
sehr abwechslungsreiche 3 track ep von düster über poppig bis roll-ig :-) >> lasst pressetexte sprechen pt.3: >im düsteren erwacht die treibende kraft der melancholie, die in den tiefen einer höhle zum licht wird. in deren schlund schweben fledermäuse aus stahl in weichem, goldenen gefieder umher. umso weiter man hinabsteigt, spürt man die hoffnung, die alle trauer besiegt und erzeugt glaube an das positive in allem sein.<
nach der kleinen sommerpause, wird von der fat- talsperre wieder vinyl in die weite welt fließen. juli-hitze, gebrochene gliedmaßen, klinsi-fieber & wodka satt konnten der wighnomischen vielfältigkeit nichts anhaben. sie sind zurück & toll wie eh & je
marek hemmann scheint wohl immer wieder darauf zu brennen, ganz viel positive energie in seine stücke zu platzieren. mit dieser ep hat er eine platte für den sommer der herzen geschaffen! eine vor ideen explo- dierende 12inch , die so beschwingt groovend daher kommt, dass man meint, er wickelt elektroswingend die schwere der welt mit genuss um unsere mittelfinger... der titeltrack (track 2) ist der blanke wahnsinn !! we love it!!
on fenou02 you will find mo s ferry s latest discoveries. on side a the germans >the magician & the scientist< reveal their sensitiveness for beautiful harmonies. their 2001 extended mix shows their fun for experimenting combined with the intuition for cute minimal electronica. on side b the japanese gen henmi a.k.a. piperthehousenail proves his keen sense of experimental breakbeats. rhythm & blues is a fantastic happy tuned track, that absolutely invites to rock
new ways by feinwerk!! hungarian artist pakt from budapest who already had releases on kreatur musik, minisketch, the flame rec. and acid mild rec, brings you three deep minimal underground techno tracks
on this third volume, substance (chain reactions peter kuschnereit) give his interpretation of realm 02 while dr. frankufen akenstein (aka akufen) does his molecular reconstitution , a demential arrangement of sounds taken from the whole album.
das mathias kaden im geiste öfter durch die afrikanische steppe flaniert und danach rhythmusinfiziert am stammesfeuer platz nimmt, deutete sich ja bereits an. hier bringt er den zusammenschluss der rhythmischen kulturen, so dass man sich wirklich die hände reicht und feststellt, wie sehr die welt klanglich zusammenrücken kann. toller tribal in jeff mills manier
caipi aus der hand, hoch aus dem liegestuhl und ab ins wasser !! ob zum baden, tanzen oder auf der luftmatratze treiben lassen, mit diesen deepen techhouse album ist es auf alle faelle schöne sommerparty..
auf ihrem neuen release praesentieren die beiden dresdner quirligen techhouse mit rauhen vocals. mit leidenschaft zur clubmusik schauen sie dabei einmal mehr ueber den tellerrand hinweg. zum abschluss bringt der milchmann nochmal frische energie in den club..
after butch aka bee low, amir & the groove rebels the next resident dj of the 50 grad club mainz/germany starts producing: marcello nuncio and his production partner amir (groove rebels) turned out his first single charlie - a very warm, deep, and minimalistic electrohouse tune. on b1 taste t.s remix picks up that feeling, gives it much more energy and turns it into the perfect prime time tool. the overset mix on b2 takes the motiv of the song an transforms it to a massiv electro bomb like her first hit. on the dancefloor
4 different artists for the second splitsound ep. a trip into minimal tech sounds with progressive incursions full of rhythms, quality and innovations. tracks by alex piccini, monque, xpansul & know how in pure philosophy splitsound! a must for any respectable dj !!
fivre t. aka sven brede & tino turner.. deep, percussive and with a touch of oldschool crazyness from acid to gently pounding breaksbeats beneath the 4/4 kick are the two tracks the perfect teaser that makes you wanna hear more.. + brilliant trippy guido schneider remix !!
superb track in tech-minimal tempo, with john selway & martin eyerer remixes. support by alexi delano, mihalis safras (trapez), monomachine, tony matt, alejandro vivanco, franco cinelli, pablo bolivar, mazi
fetter tanzbarer elektrosound mit einer spur melancholie. bladerunner eben... supported by: john acquaviva, the hacker, hardy hard, trick & kubic, drama nui, sebastien sun, ron flatter, florian meindl, james alexander, franz & shape
after his very succesful contribution to the >collection 01< compilation of last year bristol based luke turner aka lukas returns with a full 12 release on players paradise. as his first track >gaucho< these two new burners are quality state of the art tech-house with pumping basslines and acid leads that will go right in there. we are very keen to have a new face from the uk on our label who follows the styles of labels like 2020vision and freerange. and as the summer returns we packed this release with one of the finest open air anthems you will hear this season. a first class corker by no other than one of the dirt crew boys, break 3000 takes the original >eraser< track and transforms it into an chicago piano fueled early 90’s rave track
