i have been releasing (techno) music since 1992 and i still love the feeling when the promotion of a new release starts. there is this unique energy. a special form of excitement that surrounds the promo phase. from the first time you play the tracks out to the reactions of friends and colleagues. its a memorable time that i savour and that i am looking forward to. still. i am fired up to present my second collaboration with victor ruiz. two tracks full of passion. intensity and spirit. now lets let the music do the talking. (thomas schumacher)
thomas schumacher is finally back on noir music with another outstanding 2-tracker. over the years me and thomas have become great friends as we click on so many levels and share the same taste in dark. melancholic and emotional music. i have been a big fan of thomas’ music for many years and i am still a great supporter of his productions today so obviously i am honored to release his music on my label again. on these 2 tracks thomas has recorded 2 authentic and raw tracks with a no holding back. zero bulls*** attitude. you can hear the “no formular” approach on both and i love that. we had an honest and creative back and forth a&r process on both tracks before and after testing them in the clubs and this has given both a unique and fresh techno sound. this is thomas schumacher’s natural rhythm.
inally repressed ! trail blazing music producer and deejay thomas schumacher returns to the helm of his own label: electric ballroom. the berlin based label will now be the primary channel for thomas schumacher s releases but will also feature selected artists from around the globe. electric ballroom kicks off with the vorfreude ep. featuring 2 singles - vorfreude & fangbanger - lifted from thomas schumacher s upcoming album rooms. the release also features remixes from clio and aka aka feat. thalstroem.
the record contains four remixes of tracks from my back catalogue that cover a period of 20 (!) years. from my early days on bush in the mid 90s to my first label spiel-zeug schallplatten in the 00 s up until now. where i run electric ballroom from berlin.
it was in 2014 when a mutual friend introduced me to victor ruiz while he was staying here in berlin. i invited victor to my studio where we had a fantastic session. playing our music to each other. listening to stuff we like and simply talkin and connecting. since then. we became close friends as well as starting to work together. victor has released two outstanding eps on electric ballroom by now. this summer we met again and recorded three tracks. the result is our first joint ep. of which i am very proud.
label head thomas schumacher returns to electric ballroom with two brand new tracks. in true schumacher style he showcases his knack for analogue basslines. state of the art sound design and sophisticated production
2016 repress! those lovely chords. that growling bassline combined with nancy sinatra-esque vocals and one big tease and build. thats what makes this track a true stand-out and sound like nothing else in club-land right now.

our dutch counterpart onno is known for his dance floor mastery. his after school ep on upon you was a multifunctionalmover that could teach any lethargic raver a few aerobic moves. >hit me< is in the same league and is completely unsuitable for yoga and pilates. so hes succesfully targeted the blonde dance instructor once again. onno brings the a1 fatburner to a peak with his charming impertinence. thomas schuhmachers pimped version of this awesome rave stepper on b1 tugs and pulls at your pants dragging you kicking and screaming to the dance parquet. where you soon realize that you never want to leave. but for those of you that want to lose some weight also know that you always need to condition yourself and >ghetto talk< on b2 is the perfect bouncy tune for that hour or so on the treadmill.
big with: ivan smagghe. hot chip. axwell. seth troxler. monika kruse. tiger stripes. tiga. john digweed. loco dice... thomas schumacher has always had an underground attitude toward his music. he thoroughly demonstrates this attitude with his first 12inch of 2010. >taxi<. an audible middle finger to the dull - as - ditchwater - post - minimal - token - ethnicvocal - sample - loop - boredom

slamming floor remixes. gui boratto turns sycamore feeling into a convincing club-track. with lighter colours and a straight four to the floor drive. using cut-ups and snippets of fiskers vocal. he transforms the mood of the original without losing its great melodic feel. thomas schumacher takes the track even further and comes up with a driving minimal techno workout. stripping away many of the original layers. yet using the vocal to great effect.

get digital is off to a blazing start after the release of the mini hit >kaskazi< from simon baker and jamie jones and the well received travelling the world ep from the fresh and talented mac neumann. now we are proud to invite the veteran thomas schumacher who has produced with elektrochemie & dj t. and recorded for legendary labels such as bush. gigolo. get physical and his own spielzeug schallplatten. schumacher is a true producers producer and we are sure these two distinctive orchestrations are sure to love up the dance every time. >hot< is something that would come to mind if one heard the word >picanha<. in passing. and without a doubt the main track >picanha< is hotter than a stolen jalapeño in july. precisely layered percussion. meticulously situated effects and drums tuned with minutiae detail are the backbone of this track. but the groove comes courtesy of the schumacher brass orchestra.
sleepy hollow was obviously inspired by the movie of the same name. it is one of my favourite pictures by tim burton and i really like the dark. creepy atmosphere of it. the bass-line recreates this mood to an extent that it scares me. makes me shiver. i mean. really! regenerate has such a strong techhouse vibe to it. again reminiscent of the early 90s and a very strong groove. excellent percussion programming and modulation by stephan. this one builds and builds until it completely gets you. personally i think all due respect is the most laidback. reduced track on the album. we came up with this distinctive. monotone melody/bass and i loved the feeling right away. definetely the kind of music that i like to play on a sunday after hour session
the long awaited thomas schumacher album will be released in a series of three 12s. with a cd version feat extra tracks !! and this album is the latest redefinition of the thomas schumacher sound. starting with one of the defining songs on home. mad robot. than comes exhale. this one is more on the peaktime side of things. and the third is the bassheavy tune hiroo. one of the first tracks t.s. recorded for home
already played by dj t. timo maas. pascal feos. hell. laurent garnier ... the titel tracks is a dark and dirty elektro tune. feat the thomas range of modulated vintage bass sounds and more white noise than you can handle. b-side is a track that simply knocks you over with sound of the early90s techhouse
1st time ever on 12inch . the huge michael jackson sampling >lust< which appeared on thomas album from bush . huge filtered tech disco with that massive sample etched the whole way through. includes the >base twelve mix< the flip.
on the bring it back ep mr. schumacher explores the fiercer grounds of what could be called 2005 tekkno house. those pizzicato synthies. bad bad bass bleeps and killing drum patterns will heat up every club in a minute due to thomass ill ability to create stunning and exiting arrangements like nobody else ! for sure this is the crazy new schumacher style!! big with: dj hell. m.a.n.d.y.. dj t.. takkyu ishino. dr. shingo. tiga & laurent garnier
