dj-mixes often do little more but keeping up a certain mood. to establish a mood like this, masterful sven väth only needs a couple of moments. but this is it not enough for the inimitable dj from frankfurt am main. väth wants to introduce us to an entire world of electronic sounds. the music is an end to itself, yet at the same time, it is more: vaeth employs it to express his passion for the whole scene, to tell about the adventures he has experienced traveling, about his love for his friends, his children, his girlfriend and particularly to his fans all around the world.
deluxe 2 cd digipack , inside out paper and embossed typo finish within electronic music sven väth represents more than a single style. sven embodies the music as a whole, he cherishes every facet of techno and house. väth has experienced the music as it emerged in the mid-eighties. from this moment on, he has helped to shape it year after year. väth produced seminal music, his labels created and create its very own unmistakable brand of music, he ran a club and several booking agencies. cocoon is a global identification mark for high quality parties and festivals. those are major achievements, but they are overshadowed by väth djing abilities. like no one else, väth manages to capture the current figuration of our beloved electronic dance music in its entirety and melds it into a single, stirring story
sound of the 16th season people have their personal rituals. leaving the international space station russian space travelers left some bread and salt as a welcome gift for their american colleagues. tennis star serena williams bounces the ball exactly five times before her first serve. our beloved master of ceremony of techno music, sven vath, has a ritual as well: when the shadows on the island ibiza grow longer and the noise of the summer is about to fade away, he takes a couple of days off and reminisces the passing season, the parties, the crowds and the music: what were the craziest, the most outrageous, most beautiful moments? which situations, which encounters inspired me? what did we laugh about? and of course: what was the best music? which tracks accompanied me and my cocoon people during those intense weeks? vath assembles those magical tracks for the sixteenth time this year merging them into two and a half hour set.
fifteen years on ibiza, fifty years alive: in 2015 sven väth celebrates two major birthdays. with more than 10.000 of his fans he will celebrate his own birthday on october the 25th in mannheims maimarkthalle. luciano, dj koze and richie hawtin will be among the well-wishers behind the turntables. the birthday bash will as well be the kick off for vaeths world tour, which will take him through three continents. sven väth s fans: some of them are dancing for more than thirty years to his music. within frankfurts club scene, they followed him from dorian gray, the omen, u60311, to the cocoonclub to ibiza.
for fourteen years the island ibiza has been haunted by cocoons high-spirited tribe. in 2013, cocoon turned the beloved amnesia into a tropical jungle. the jungle seduces with lush colors and intriguing sounds. without hesitation you dive into lush greens, amazed by heat and beauty
there will always be a bass drum making people dance, but it will rarely sound the same. techno and house are in continuous flux. there will always be people celebrating. and each year new kids join the scene, hungry for pleasure, for beauty, for ecstasy - for life.
