rico puestel is a phenomenon and currently one of the best artists around when it comes to solid, discerning techno. thats techno that takes no detours, doesnt hide behind vocal samples or need unnecessary, pseudo-intelligent tinkering to get the listeners attention. puestels two current cocoon contributions equity and immunised are strongly reminiscent of caravel, which he also released on cocoon recordings almost exactly a year ago. the mini breaks and prolonged dramatic pauses are all pieces in the puzzle of puestels arrangement and together with the hypnotic beats and constantly radiating synths and effects, they make up his own interpretation of techno sound. it buzzes, it shines and with the right pa its exactly the type of vibe that help us forget the daily grind of dance music madness! that ubiquitous let the bass kick sample hasnt felt so at home for a long time!
some things simply take time, so after and inbetween several releases on cocoon recordings throughout 2017, after one year rico puestel returns to his creative outlet ahrt with four delightfully imbuing reworks of the labels debut release astrayed!

although rico puestel has been producing since 2005, he still seems to be something of an insider tip. since caravel though, his august release on cocoon recordings, things have taken a dramatic turn with puestel currently enjoying man of the moment status, especially when it comes to progressive techno and peak time action on the dance floor.
cocoon recordings presents cor12146, the dignified follow-up 12inch by rico puestel that we were waiting for so long. cocoon head sven võth himself is dropping caravel for quite some time already and the godfather of german techno smashes floors around the globe with this hot and dirty bombshell. take all of the rocking techno ingredients that you loved so much over the last decade and you get a melt down of dustin zahn, industrial strength soundhack and many more milestones to nameà however puestel created a very unique own style out of all these influences and the result is simply outstanding. sven played the acetate of this so often that we even had to cut a second one. techno-trainspotter worldwide went mad for this one and were killing us with their requests and track-id inquiries. the wait is over guys! caravel and est (on the flipside) are two cutting edge techno monsters that hold enough energy to power your car, your computer, your phone, your lifeàwe cannot imagine what rico will show us next
rico puestel is in charge for our cocoon recordings 144th release. rico is an producer animal who released more than 100 tracks & remixes since 2005 under various project names such as dinamoe, central scrutinizer and of course under his main moniker rico puestel. the enormous amount of productions shaped ricos knowledge and taste and his new cocoon release neyst and enokid seems to be the logical result of his long journey through the techno-universe. puestels style is very unique and merges elements of dark and hypnotic mainfloor techno as well as orchestral sounds and even industrial elements. neyst is the perfect hypnotic and dark techno circle that keeps on progressing and building up into sheer madness. no fast food, no leightweight, this is heavy techno business! enokid comes with a little more of a chicago house vibe however it is again still deep in puestels very own style. we especially fancy the crazy break in the middle with the spaced out room effect part and the melody coming in after the break. as stompy and musclepacked this track is, it still seems to be very musical and deep at the same time - what a trip! this one demands a good and proper sound system, well what other cocoon release doesnt?
