an all-time rave classic gets the gerd janson re-loving as he works his magic on the 1992 anthem dont go. 26 years on from it s first release, gerd takes the tempo down a notch laying out that all too familiar drum break, instantly recognisable piano line and julie mcdermott s timeless vocals. his subtle touches and added weight, behind a pounding kick, are sure to set any dancefloor alight. about as euphoric as they get - if this doesn t do the business then god help us all. on the b side, belfast s ejeca flips don t go into a heavy-hitting, rave tinged, techno bomb. his inventive sampling turns the synth stabs and vocals on their heads, making them almost indistinguishable, but no less impactful, from the original. it s over four and a half minutes till the iconic chord progression is heard in it s initial form, before ejeca throws it back into a rapid fire, industrial thumper. lastly, gerd serves up a vip dub mix echoing claps and synth lines into the stratosphere, whilst leaving the vocals at bay, save a short cry of don t go from julie towards the end of the track, allowing those anthemic elements to do the talking. a modern touch on an all-time classic from gerd with a complete reinterpretation from ejeca, this is a heavyweight release and one thats already being played by the biggest and the best out there.

earthboogie’s debut album, human call, rightly earned praise on its release earlier in the year, with listeners responding positively to its sticky and humid dancefloor fusions of african and south american rhythms, chunky dub disco, retro-futurist house, spacey analogue electronics and sun-kissed balearica. hot on the heels of that release, leng records has sourced new remixes of two album highlights – “high minded man” and “silken moon” – from running back label boss gerd janson and synthesizer-wielding balearic boogie stalwart pete herbert.

coyu is working on his highly anticipated debut album it will explain a story, my story attests the big cat. it s the first chapter of this story and the debut single of the album is 1+1, a track made in collaborating with thomas gandey a perfect summer track, powerful but addictive and catchy. in coyu s own words 1+1 it s me and my girlfriend, me and my mother, me and my team, suara and me, my music and me, the world and me. because without the people you love and all that you love you are nothing. 1 + 1 is a claim to love and be loved, to embrace sensibilities, to create synergies and teamwork. but also, it is the communion of my two great passions: techno and house music. nine minutes of linear and heavy groove that melts with the notes of an emotional piano. it s a track that i m deeply proud of, i am pretty sure that in 10 years from now i will continue to enjoy it like i did the first day it was finished and after a year and a half i can now say that it is just as much mine as it is yours. because you and me are also 1+1. for the remixes probably we have the greatest pack ever on the label: gerd janson delivered an amazing interpretation of the track: truncate takes the track down to raw techno, less is more. last but not least we have the introspective trip of cosmin trg which completes one of the releases of the year on the kitties labe
life is like a mirror ball! the first one in a hopefully long-lived series of disco and pop influenced super sound singles on running back, comes courtesy of the unmistakeable gibson brothers. leaving their biggest wedding hits -cuba- and -que sera mi vida- to the side, the philanthropic and smile-forcing -ooh, what a life- gets an extended edit service by shan & gerd janson, who cut away some of the fat and make it fit for fun on contemporary dance-floors. the flip side sees them remixing and sandpapering -heaven- into a disco-house interbred (filters and looping mandatory). to quote john lyndon: -disco sucks? you never heard that from me.-
