(SITTIN ON) THE DOCK OF THE BAY (LTD GOLDEN 7 INCH)
coloured 7" Vinyl D16.01.18
am 22. november 1967 nahm otis redding seinen größten hit “(sittin’ on) the dock of the bay” auf. er wurde der einzige hit, den redding sowohl in den r&b- als auch in den pop-charts auf position 1 platzieren konnte. doch das schicksal wollte es, dass otis redding dies nicht mehr erleben durfte: er kam vier wochen vor der veröffentlichung bei einem flugzeugunglück ums leben.
heute gehört der song mit der charakteristischen, gepfiffenen melodie am ende zu den bekanntesten und beliebtesten songs der musikgeschichte und zur säule des bahnbrechenden recording-katalogs von otis reddings. noch immer fasziniert er ganze generationen und gehört zu einer handvoll von songs aus den 1960ern, die über 100 millionen streams auf spotify verzeichnen!
50 jahre nach der erstveröffentlichung am 8 januar 1968, bringt rhino “(sittin’ on) the dock of the bay” als 7”-single auf goldfarbenem vinyl in einer detailgenauen reproduktion der original-monosingle heraus. als b-seite enthält es “sweet lorene” in der optischen wiedergabe als volt-veröffentlichung, verpackt in einer gestanzten hülle wie jene, die atlantic records seinerzeit benutzten, als sie die stax / volt-schallplatten vertrieben.

marc cerrone became the star of incredible live experiences in paris and elsewhere. as if, after having spent the first step of his musical career elaborating his repertoire, he’d chosen to devote the second one to make it live permanently. firstly on stage, then through younger generations: when bob sinclar samples his music or invites him to collaborate, it’s a new way for cerrone to keep his main ability alive: make crowds dance. a talent which most of his younger fans - todd terje, prins thomas, james murphy and a whole generation of cosmic disco lovers - agree to and get inspiration from. from 1976 to 2014, cerrone, whose discography makes so many others jealous, never stopped playing and keeping his beat which he considers vital. and if disco music had to be summarized to one artist, one creator, it would be him and nobody else. this exclusive double lp sounds like a tribute to his prolific discography, containing incredible remixes talented producers. a cd with all tracks is included.
the first years, from his first album in 1976 to his 7th in the middle of the 80’s, were fuelled with an exemplary sense of creativity and a free-spirit vision. against everyones advice, cerrone was never reluctant to compose long and pure trance disco tracks, not exactly radio-friendly at the time, but which did incredibly well because they encapsulated the hedonism of the day and were far more than a trend. for instance, love in c minor and supernature have become unbeatable classics, featured regularly in the best pop, disco or dance selections, such a success would have burnt most of the others wings, whose career would have been ruined. at the beginning of the 80s, when he decided to unleash his creativity on stage, cerrone managed to rebound with you are the one studio album.

counterweight welcomes to the label the rising berlin artist opål with this excellent 4-track full of techno ep... the title track, luminescence, is a rough and hard hitting 4/4 warehouse destroyer. -impala- reduces the tension and shows a more melodic side of the artist but still keeping his characteristic industrial touch. on the b side opål shows what is the definition of -driving- techno with -eclipse-, this is simply amazing. the last track is an absolutely outstanding remix by the italian artist pvs, who explores new atmospheric shapes and goes beyond simple 4/4 structures. pump up the volume, this is real shit!

following up on their acclaimed 2016 album, “pitch black mirror”, the canadian duo return to sonic groove with four new tracks based on their improvised live performances. these are dance floor tracks with an experimental edge and a pervasive sense of dread, emphasizing the project’s decades-long commitment to fusing techno and industrial music in unique ways. elements of ebm, electro, and rhythmic noise blur together as serpentine basslines twist through shifting layers of percussion, and modular dronescapes morph into agonized voices of suffering and defiance. another powerful weapon from the orphx arsenal.
known for his strong live performances, swedish producer celldöd creates music for the body as well as the soul: his influences range from punk, industrial and dub music over to acid house, techno and ebm. that new five track banger ep is dealing with subjects such as sadism, masochism, unhealthy relationships, and the fact that the good never prevails. but if the world is going to hell, we can at least dance on the way down. let us move, together. in darkness.
positive centre marks the 5th release on his in silent series label with 4 tracks of weighted mechanical workouts that feature his honed atmospheric style with brooding scenery and sharp percussive accents. isolated loop takes a crunched and spat out growl of an acid synth and blends it with ever developing drum machine patterns as a weaponised techno tool. tension arm builds on this with sharp percussion piercing over a hard edged bassline and atmospheric scenery. idle roller is a deep, sub-aquatic rhythm journeying to parts unknown with subtle switch in rhythm keeping the momentum going through this textured sound world. sum tolerance fractures open with stretched sounds of otherworldly instruments, sludge laden beats and humming bass pressure.
es ist wieder soweit: michael klein bringt elf neue, bis auf das kleinste detail ausgefeilte tracks heraus, die von nur selten aufzufindender musikalischer reife zeugen. wieder einmal erscheint seine musik bei seinem stamm-label second state, diesmal allerdings in form eines albums sein erstes. snapshot- begleitet den zuhörer auf eine musikalischen reise, die von groovigen, düsteren, verträumten und mit einem leichten touch acid verfeinerten sounds geprägt ist. jeder einzelne track ist auf seine eigene art und weise besonders, während sich dennoch ein roter faden durch das ganze werk zieht, was aus dem album ein must-have macht, das in jedem plattenregal stehen sollte.
regal lands once again in his very own etiquette with a powerful statement: >still raving<. a taste of his sound in a very particular way, one of his most personal records until date. techno with trance, rave and acid influences that converge in the four tracks that give shape to this ep. a solid proof of music being bigger than words.
berlin producer kevin de vries has emerged as one of the capitals most hotly tipped newcomers since his track eternity appeared on adam beyer’s drumcode label in 2016. besides such luminaries as beyer, sven väth and richie hawtin, tale of us have also recognised his talent, paying de vries the compliment of featuring his track path to immortality on their fabric 97 cd this year. if thats not enough theyve also given kevin a place of honour on their very own afterlife label compilation in the form of magoa. which brings us to the matter in hand. de vries debut for cocoon is characterised by significantly higher levels of impulsive energy without ever losing sight of his instinctive feel for harmony.
new from the ever discerning nous camp comes ayln s rehtomep, a 25 minute exploration of the kind of unrelenting machine music for which both artist and label have come to prominenc. side a is a journey through sparse syncopated rhythms, industrial noise motifs and the kind of buzz and hum that the heroes of the second wave of techno music championed, culminating in the ep s title track rehtom which is an exercise in analogue techno mastery. side b s delivery is subtly more dulcet, kicking off with digital memories, which has a more classical techno structure than anything that came before, building intricate melodies into an otherwise taut and tightly woven electronic landscape while the closing impulsive sheit is a gentle downbeat number, exploring the space within the music and creating an atmospheric ambient discourse to outro the heady charge of the ep as a whole.
cadans continues an incredibly strong run of releases with curved, his first drop for ben sims on-point hardgroove imprint. previous output for clone basement series as well as darko essers wolfskuil and balans as well as a collaboration with randomer for tasha s neighbourhood imprint have quickly established cadans (dutchman-in-london, jeroen snik) rep. on curved we re treated to yet more of the rising star s strident and sometimes disorientating rhythms. creep and dank open the ep with blistering purpose - all distorted 909 kicks and and hazy memories of strobes on seething dance floors. the title track kicks off the b-side with an aptly undulating and enjoyably unsettling slant to its main riff while the ep wraps up with chant a brilliantly effective drum-machine and vocal/horn sample workout.
sub club and nautilus rising present our fifth release, courtesy of love over entropy. four tracks tried and tested on our dance floor at 22 jamaica street by our beloved saturday night residents. influenced by train journeys, passing landscapes, hiking and over 20 years experience in the studio.

highly revered techno dj/producer ilario alicante has unveiled his brand new luce ep, consisting of four fresh tracks on cocoon recordings. recognised as a dj of the highest order whilst playing at berghain when he was still only 21, ilario continues to go from strength to strength. an integral member of the respected cocoon family, ilario alicante has become a regular at cocoon ibiza, elrow and dc10 during his career so far. made up of the titled track luce, a cosmic production packed with synth-laced flutters, and the more dancefloor-ready scelta ilario showcases his eclectic nature across the release. using a high tempo through the shudders of cocoon, the italian rounds off the ep with the deeply atmospheric sensa with the latters rattles adding an intense nature to the production.
