raucherecke are back with their third release on 200 records. they shaped their unique techno style in the last years, so that they are distinctive now as you could hear lastly on their >papierfabrik ep< on treibstoff. till krüger did the remix for the title track >malibu< – a perfect choice.
moving away from their minimal approach to techno found in their first productions, the cologne based duo raucherecke now show us theirn affection for dancefloor driven music with the >papierfabrik ep<, named after the famous cologne warehouse club.
with the second release on 200 records the cologne based duo raucherecke presents >chordhose< – a sophisticated groover with an phenomenally drunken piano. marcel janovsky has remixed this gem to a typical treibstoff sound – in a perfect manner. our beloved b2 is devoted to >gitarre<, a melancholic guitar smasher.
as we launch into the 20th instalment of our watergate mix series, it seems only fitting that we turn to one of our own artists to commemorate the milestone. a man already well known for his poignant and impassioned productions and dj sets, we are thrilled to present matthias meyer as the next master of controls on watergate 20! over the course of 80 minutes, meyer skillfully navigates through boundless sonic spaces of lush melodics, organic grooves and sentimental sensations with an effortless approach. from the very beginning, emotions run deep as the sound of rain and strings on kettenkarussell’s ‘ten friends’ sets the stage as yokoo & retzas exclusive track satori and leafar legovs tribal girls establish the percussive tone of the mix. the journey really begins to unfold when back to back exclusive tracks gorje hewek & izhevskis turgoyakk and matthias own uluwatu take over. as the mix picks up steam tracks from palms trax, langenberg, hyenah and another exclusive from meyer himself provide the perfect momentum that drives us into the deeper side as the mix takes a turn towards the final stretch.
