parallel berlin head daniela la luz returns to her home away from home, housewax with a few friends to rework her modern classic, -did you ever-. originally released in 2014 -did you ever- was an instant classic amongst decerning house heads, but it was when detroit legend, moodymann dropped it as closing track on his dj kicks compilation the year later. the light well and truly spun onto la luz and her sublime approach of house and techno. now to kick off 2018 housewax have invited virgo 4, dah ruh and cinthie to offer their spin on -did you ever-. together they each offer 3 unique takes from house to deep techno, yet managing to stay true to the soulful flavor of the original.
the third release of weorus comes with four massive tracks perfectly delivered by talented maurice giovannini and remixed by cocoon’s rising star dana ruh. the ep enter with “orange”, a mystically track perfect matched with the label concept of timeless music. dana ruh on a2 gives the perfect energy for a fully crowded dance floor, maintaining the spiritual feeling in the background, just a perfect interpretation. “plasma” for maurice is the tune that truly can make you go on a higher level, the structure, the sound design and feeling are deeply matched together for a nice and warm b1 start. “bunka” ends the ep in a perfect way giving you the need to reloop the entire ep. maurice again hits with a perfect vinyl already supported by ricardo villalobos, rhadoo and many others.
autoreply begins its 10th year with a 12inch from one of the scenes favourite ambassadors, dana ruh. equally happy co-running brouqade and her own cave recordings, dropping lps for underground quality or stepping up to ostgut ton & cocoon, hers is a story of emotive, reduced floor-theory. the -round 2 reel ep delivers three such movements kicking-off with an undeviatingly playable a-side displaying her prowess for swinging, stripped-back house complete with discreet sound design and compulsory bass. the b-side concentrates on the deeper, dubbier aspect of her sound displaying unparalleled levels of warmth and texture. written & produced at polynomstudio, berlin, recorded to tape for your listening pleasure!
with heavy support coming from ricardo villalobos, praslesh, rhadoo and more, this package is sure to make some noise on the dance floor. up next for the other side is the 4th release with 3 heavy remixes from dana ruh, argenis brito and a special dub mix of sistema de revolucion by heavy hitter, ada kaleh romania.
miss jools finally steps inside with her deep and groovy signature sound with her first ep on sol asylum with a remix from dana ruh. we instantly fell in love with “stepping inside,- this beautifully crafted atmospheric groover is destined to be a timeless gem. followed by dana ruh’s swingy reinterpretation that is finely crafted for the dance floor while still keeping it’s original sophistication. we are definitely not sorry to have this spaced out deep roller with a nice melodic surprise in the middle titled “sorry not sorry.” then wrapping this package beautifully together is “444 marjorie” a more classical approach to deep house but always with a modern twist with a dedication to someone very special to jools.

*bapteme de l air* keeps the pressure up throughout as it steadily rolls out its sharpened kick and thick, propulsive snare before reaching its rattling, mechanical apogee. *ready pour le tour* unfurls behind off-kilter clicks, tightly swung hats and sax stabs while astute dynamics build a rich and cavernous atmosphere. the disco tinged *plein les mirettes* sets a rousing warm-up tone from the off with a dense kick and clap pinning down flecks of crowd chatter and shimmering metallic signals before dana ruhs spectral revision of ready pour le tour casts a murky glow over the original, blooming until its close with thickening strings and addictive knocks and claps.
together with guido schneider, andrè galluzzi presents the kick-off of the todays rmixes. a cooperation, well known since albertino on cadenza or too late to land on cocoon. the first trambolla rmix join this series as a percussive and mystic club crasher, bloom at primetime. urban drums meets wideness of electronic sound.

STAI JOS EP (VINYL ONLY / INCL DANA RUH & EVELINE FINK RMXS)
12" Vinyl D07.05.13
vinyl only! we have a new release lined up from the enough! music family. there are so many words that could best describe the debut ep from plusculaar, but we prefer to simply say that this release is simply exceptional, we are in love with this sound! two tracks stai jos and romance are both full of passion and soul, detailed arrangements full of magic and expression, there is nothing ordinary about these, they are simply wonderful! for the remixes we have contribution from dana ruh and eveline fink, each providing their own personal touch, a fusion of techno and dub, well structured and subtle. each little hit, melody and percussion groove fits perfectly and is well matched and balanced in these two mixes. once you listen, you will understand straight away and all night long!
dana ruh and anthea have defied the merciless winter in their studio and the track like a river is the result. clean beats, bathing synths, vocals with telepathic powers driving onward, onward, onward, unexpectedly changing direction.
once again labelheads andré galluzzi & dana ruh teamed up at the studios for one long session and born was this art of peaktime attack! front side is a 10 minute heavy bass bomb filled with danas understanding for subtile things and andrés love for freaky details. flip side comes with well arranged drums and shaking percussions for moving your butts on the floor.
tune in: dana ruh brings brouqade back from summer holidays. an ep completely rounded, mesmerizing from first to last. sula wakes with vivid snares. precisely produced, finely tuned arrangements and driven by a straight beat and pulsating bass line, the track develops with its deep clubsound to a veritable groover.cautious in the beginning nebouxii gains its selfesteem, builds up subtly, pushes and drives forward and spreads its hypnotic appeal. the mood is constantly high and takes its time to fully develop. sulidae brings you back from the previous hypnosis and gives you insight in a different world: charming vocals glide on a steady synth line, when all around a poetic magic is revealed and some ingenious elements are pulled out of the hat.
dana ruh has not hestitated to explore musical possibilities in her studio with her machines to continue her solo work. while evolving new sounds and tracks, she hit some spectacular signings with ben watts buzzin fly and put a track on a various artists on crosstown rebels. as well there will be her own new releases on aras and brouqade. make sure to expect some musical gemstones in the second half of 2011 to be released .... coz diamonds are that girls best friends.
there is a certain dynamic that emerges whenever andre galluzzi and dana ruh pair up to create a record. with last year s >freya / mauersegler< split ep on ostgut ton, the two have already hit up some of the most prestigious labels in the electronic music landscape. tracks that are upbeat, driving, and, most of all, fresh have characterized their co-productions, which now have aras as a home. taking its cues from their label nights at berlin s panorama bar, galluzzi and ruh have solidified aras into an imprint based around expanding upon the creative energy that both share. their first release, >trambolla<, harmonizes each artist s approach into a grooving whirlwind that showcases their ability as producers as well as live musicians.starting off with the title track >trambolla<, the ep begins with tribal beats and infectious arrangements that seamlessly build upon each other along the course of the a-side. grooving from the start, it is the kind of track where the listener or the dj gets into the vibe right away. the percussion of >trambolla< especially stands out amongst the latin-tinged bongos, hi-hats, and hand claps that interchangeably come in and out of the track, a journey of its own at 9 minutes. >thelema<, the b-side, contrasts with the lightness of the a-side and demonstrates galluzzi and ruh s equal comfort in creating darker and heavily pounding tracks. the ten minute track grows out of a simple beat and growls ever louder as it takes in more intensity with its cascade of filters, delays, and booming bass. aside from the hard edge of >thelema<, it also provides a preview into the live set that the two artists are about to debut together.
crocosmia x sees dana ruh engaging with the sound of house. ramaria flava initiates a desperate groovy beat with clear and energetic vocals that open us out into peaktime. the track was made for us to dance! opuntia the bloomy intro of this ep comes with the voice of the artist yorba. calm and serene she tells us about her passion for rythm and sound while cumulatively the floor of funky house beats expands. the continuiation we find on the b-side is deep, dubby and clear. the beat wriggles around the hookline and here we have the track del sur. the sound of an organ goes ahead with different voices.
berghain / panoramabar resident andre galluzzi kick started ostugt ton almost 5 years ago with his pivotal berghain 01 mix cd. now he finally returns home alongside close colleague dana ruh, with this 2 track foray into cutting-edge hypnotic territories. alongside her forthcoming collaborations with galluzzi, and a new label forged by andre, dana ruh runs the respected broquade platform where her elegant inclinations in sound can be explored further.
aus dem nichts in den fokus der aufmerksamkeit. der türkische newcomer tolga baklacioglu überrascht mit 2 tracks irgendwo zwischen house und minimal techno. tanzbar, treibend und ein hauch von 1001 nacht! dana ruh steuert einen intensiven reduzierten minimal house remix bei.

dana ruh’s brouqade has long been renowned for its many eclectic and unpredictable sounds. in that essence, the label’s latest signing is a fitting fit. kamran sadeghi is an nyc based electronic music producer who is well versed in unconventional soundscapes. as likely to release an electronic music ep as he is turn his hand to film scores or more ambient textures, sadeghi has collaborated with everyone from patti smith to berlin club, berghain. a live artist of considerable depth and panache, his signing to brouqade marks another high point in the label’s story.
bqd040.1 is a collection of remixes the label released during its early years. back then, the label intended to back up every release with a remix. the rhadoo remix was not just an amazing addition to pherox’s “gabrielle” track, but it was also featured on an ep released with new graphics. buck delivered an amazing interpretation of danilo schneider’s summer track “l’ecole”, that’s still very much a favourite at the label. last but not least, laurine frost’s remix of dana & nvelope’s “flowers”, one of dana’s first released tracks. frost gave the original a rich soundscape an extraordinary vibe. all of these remixes meant something special to the label, and now they’re all here for you to enjoy on one record…
