the cocoon recordings very own inhouse compilation series dots and pearls is back once again and takes us on a tour to the expected sounds of the upcoming spring season. frankfurt based christian burkhardt starts the selection of four exclusive and previously unreleased tracks. his -karambolage- breathes spring air and creates an early summer feeling par excellence. this tune will even turn gray and rainy april weather into bright sunlight. on spot with playful and positive harmonies and a very subtle 80 s synthie-pop flavour. this one here definitely makes us want more! next in line is argy, one of our most long standing cocoon recordings artists. his -how late it was, how late- has an undeniable 80s retro charm, too however it follows a completely different direction than burkhardts -karambolage-. this one refers strongly to an early 80s acid sound and reminds us of great productions such as -on and on- by jesse saunders. we cannot tell how far argy s reminiscences goes back but for the ones who know: -how late it was, how late- will bring you back to the great times of labels like rams horn and their rational youth s -dancing on the berlin- wall. brave and surprising at the same time and above all: -übercool-! with -baroon- by markus fix follows another acid track - however, this one has a far more epic flavour full of warm analogue strings and based on a hypnotic arrangement. fix -baroon- is defintely less retro than argys and burkhardts contributions - a deep tech house gem made for the first sunrises of the upcoming allnighter open airs. with -euphrasia- jim jules accelerates slightly but goes also deeper at the same time. his production follows the cinematic mood of markus fix but paints a darker picture. this one takes us on an intensive musical journey. deep, slightly gloomy and extremely hypnotic, -euphrasia- is almost captivating and bewitching and a perfect conclusion for this highly diversified fourtracker.
jimi jules has a small but perfectly formed discography. equinox on zukunft is his debut album, and sees him successfully expand his musical repertoire beyond the club-ready deep house he s known for. thanks to the use of musicians - drummers, guitarists and such-like - there s a loose, warm and quietly soulful feel throughout.
jimi jules is working like a product line. this time with a congenial partner kalabrese aka kalaspatz. two swiss guys penned up in a studio with a lot of red wine… homeless & tuff city kids on remix duties. this is what you get. dope vibes!
watergate affairs is a brand new offering featuring residents, regulars and affiliated artists that have developed close ties to the club through the years. over the course of four tracks, jimi jules, lee jones, la fleur and david mayer & sebastian voigt perfectly display the sound of watergate. diving right in is jimi jules and he hasnt let lost a step, picking up where he left off with his stellar bogota ep earlier this year by churning out a burner. 6% is rooted in a heaving low end groove while hypnotic tones spiral around a modulating lead that never lands in the same place, ensuring a twisted dance floor venture.
its no secret jimi jules is an integral part of the watergate crew since he is a regular fixture at both the club and our international showcases. as well as being a core artist on our very own w-agency we are extremely proud and excited to say we can now include him as part of the watergate records roster.
rumpelmusig, das neue label von rumpelmeister kalabrese, geht in die nächste runde und macht da weiter, wo es mit dem kalabrese longplayer independent dancer aufgehört hat. hello asshole kommt mit knusprig-swingendem groove daher, der fast schon ein breakbeat ist und es rauscht vorzüglich im sounddesign. das kafi-lied auf der b-seite ist eine liebeserklärung an das kaffeetrinken, sich zeit nehmen am morgen und mit einer moody stimmung in den tag starten. sarah palin, die sängerin des rumpelorchesters, verleiht dem song mit ihrer stimme die kraft, um über allem zu strahlen und um sich gleich am morgen leidenschaftlich in den tag zu stürzen und zu verlieben. dance pop vom allerfeinsten!
following the success of their earl ep on switzerlands hive records, berlin-based house staple oliver $ reunites with swiss jazz house aficionado jimi jules to bring their anticipated debut release on defected.

as summer peaks, we bring you the brand new series watergate remixes where standout tracks from our discography are remixed and retouched by some of our favorite artists. kicking off the first installment we have matthias meyer and jimi jules stepping up to deliver their twist on two big tunes from heavy-hitters butch and henrik schwarz. first up is matthias remix of butchs cosmic tale shahrzad, and he dishes out a truly timeless piece of dance floor euphoria. with his trademark organic groove and lush swirling pads meyer guides us through a heavenly journey into the distant reaches of sonic elation. on the flip side, jimi jules brings his a-game with a revision of henrik schwarz classic words in return by demonstrating an incredibly mature restraint of precise and calculated efforts resulting in an enchanting trip of dreamy aural pleasures.

it has always been the great artist duos that really turned the wheels of cultural history: ying and yang, laurel and hardy, siegfried and roy. the latters connection to animal trainer definitely cant be denied. while siegfried and roy might be taming white tigers though, animal trainer are specialising in vinyl and the dancing crowd.
