12" Vinyl UK20.11.18
taken from his critically acclaimed new lp long way home, lazy days s main man invites three a-list producers to revisit some of the highlights from the album. andre lodemann & fabian dikof give by day feat. sio a techier and deeper mood. perfect for those late hours of the night. ian pooley brings his classic sound to silverlight featuring jinadu while lauer explores the balearic side of wherever you go. there s also an additional reversion of by day by fred, taking the track in completely different world than his broken beat original.
over the last decade andre lodemann, a regular in the worldwide underground dancescene has released on many prolific labels incl. freerange, room with a view, dftd and innervisions. come 2018 lodemann is now releasing his album the deeper you go on his own label best works records. he started working on it in 2012, taking his time for his emotional artistic approach with a lot of attention to detail. the album successfully walks the imaginary spectrum of deep house, tech house and techno also taking dives into other waters. where his previous longplayer fragments was a compilation of past works, the deeper you go is his first artist album containing everything a listener would want to hear both in a club and at home. you can feel that the tracks where created out of the same mold. theres a mood, a common thread and a story through the works.the album is dark in a subtle way and yet has that positive vibe and aggressiveness to it. the deeper you go is mostly instrumental with two features by the british singer and songwriter huw costin, bandleader of torn sail.
best works records is back with a new offering from spanish artist luis junior. the two new tracks -ipsum- & “2db2” come with remixes by the production duo andre lodemann & fabian dikof aswell as one from italian shooting stars stereocalypse.
luis junior’s track -ipsum- continues to play with a slight spa-nish flair reminiscent of his previous output with us. “2db2” offers some more floor-ruffness and technoid play.
as remixers we are really happy to have stereocalypse on board, some might know their amazing work for whomadewho. for the second remix label-head andre lodemann joins best works records artist fabian dikof for their second remix collab after the success of their compuphonic remix.
for our next release we welcome back two of hamburg’s finest and most recent international exports: adana twins. last seen on our latest various artists compilation, the duo returns with three absolutely stunning tracks of low slung, infectious cuts blurring the lines between house and techno with an undeniable brush stroke of character the two are quickly becoming synonymous for. ‘flower of cane’ kicks things off in an almost sinister fashion with massive low end bursts and a fever inducing, single note that never stops rising culminating in a climactic crescendo of dance floor euphoria while ‘ortus’ takes a much more ‘up-beat’ approach with dreamy arpeggios and shimmering atmospherics laid over a pulsing bassline resulting in a gorgeous number ideal for a number of memorable moments. wrapping up the originals is the guaranteed summer anthem: ‘relentless fest. jeppe kjellberg’ where sultry vocals and lush aural artifacts launch sensations to uncharted new heights. not done yet, we asked none other than the brilliant andre lodemann to create his revision of ‘relentless feat. jeep kjellberg’ and he, as always, delivered big time. with not only one but two solid reworks of the original lodemann’s remixes need no description other than there is a vocal and a dub version to satisfy any dj’s sensibility. we hope you enjoy.
best works records label-owner andré lodemann is back with a new long-awaited ep on his imprint. it is the 20th release on the label. for this “birth” ep andré personally enlisted non-other than swiss duo adriatique for their remix skills aswell as new-comer producer fabian dikof. andré’s track “birth” creates contrasts using african-drumming inspired styles paired with techy-beat pro-gramming. starting more on a minimal tip the track works its self up to high-tension climaxing with an emotional break keeping the deeper moments intact. adriatique created a faster more club-orientated ver-sion paring the more hooky parts of the original with beat-sythn elements giving the track a more tribal feel. the second remix featured here come’s via fabian dikof the second main artist on best works records. it s great to have him remix andré lodemann at last presenting his masterful skills. fabian took a different path in his remix working more on the melodic hook but also creating a warm bass-laden soundscape that loves the dance-floor in its own right.
andre lodemann is a highly regarded producer from berlin whose debut release dropped in 2004 on mike grant s legendary moods & grooves label. last year saw andre lodemann release his innervisions debut leaving the comfort zone ep. he has remixed for labels such as innervisions, buzzin fly, poker flat and rebirth. squares is a brand new side-project from fish go deep, focusing on completely hardware-based productions and slightly more experimental, left field deep house. tony lionni continues to impress following his osgut ton smash found a place (which continues to drive dance floors into a frenzy worldwide) with releases on versatile, mule, wave and madhouse.

12" Vinyl D26.04.11
future classic have gone back to their deep house roots with >changed< by mario & vidis. they have also invited their friends andre lodemann, john talabot, soul clap, jozif and softwar to grab their pianos, drum machines and string ensembles for remixes. mario and vidis are two gentlemen from lithuania
what a journey! well, these guys have been around for a while- they have gone through: rave, jazz, krautrock, garage, detroit, house, hip-hop, disco, folk, dubstep, electronica, funk, punk, wave, chicago house, handmade music and soul. all those nights at clubs, the records, the shelves, the dirt in the second-hand record shops, the stacked audio- and studio magazines in their toilets or elsewhere in the house, the hours spent making their own radio-shows, hundreds of hotels checked in and out of, dozens of sound-checks done. last but not least, the revivals, the subgenres, the fusion - well these peeps have given real influential input into some of these (sub)genres in the past. >lovin< is the second single release of the upcoming >alex and the grizzly< album which is due out in april 2011. alex barck is on the vocals together with lois longerling, who is known for her work with dollkraut. andre lodemann delivers a smart remix giving the tune his trade-mark sound and putting onto the house-dancefloors. prommer and barck are on tour with their own live show.

VEHEMENCE OF SILENCE / MOTOR CITY DRUM ENSEMBLE RMX
12" Vinyl D23.09.09
andré decided spontaneously to record fresh material especially for the label, more than 6 months before our fi rst release. this says a lot about the common trust that was born that day, much before the hype surrounding the man. the result of this saw the light some weeks later in the form of vehemence of silence, a track of indeniable power which breathes long years of djing & berlin afterhours as much as uncovering close impressions of andré’s emotional outcome. this is what made me feel that track like a whisper to my body & soul and what makes me so proud to release it today… more than 10 months down the line, andré improved it, tested it on the fl oor till a fi nal club listening session in the middle of the berghain dancefl oor where we both knew it was ready to be shared… this special track needed of course outstanding alternative perspectives and it didnt take me long to propose my old friend danilo plessow amongst andrés favorites to give it his magic : motor city drum ensembles version translates an unexpected techno jam reminiscent of the best early soma days. the ep is completed by a second original called dark edge, a sophisticated & raw deep house joint. a&r and words by dairmount
andre lodemann has managed to create his own musical language by producing a very emotional psychodelic deep sound-tapestry. both tracks have very contrasting elements and surprising arrangements combining e.g. piano harmonies with dark aggressive alarm-signals. thriller meets drama
dies ist der erste release von best works records aus berlin. im original kombiniert andré lodermann analoge wärme mit digitalen skills während der deepe charles webster mix hypnotisierend alle aufmerksamkeit auf sich zieht. super start
andrés first release for simple records >wanna feel< is all about the resonant, hypnotic bassline that steadily opens out to reveal more layers of harmony. little sounds and licks of melody dance around the bass whilst strings and stabs build the hook into one big crescendo. brooks melancholic strings, cleverly cut up the bassline and an eerie soundscape pushes the vibe of the original into a darker more sinister techno place….this is the lights out, heads down, touch me in the dark kind of groove that we love! finally >move< is an absorbing and patient deep house gem. plunging into a backdrop of prodded keys that subtly shift in shape and tone, a central synth melody climbs to euphoric climax before retiring back to waves of throbbing bass and rolling percussive loops
taken from their award winning album >fabrics of the heart<, the soulful duo liquideep returns with another sizzler - >feel it< remixes.
