Cocoon Recordings very own "best of" series presents the next issue which is again simply called by the number of the release-order. So it's number „nine“ this time ("Neun"). Yep, you heard right, number nine it is and another proof how fast time is passing while we listen to house and techno. Sven Väth has choosen Chris Tietjen again to compile and mix the pearls of the last Cocoon Recordings releases. Tietjen started as a young gung in Väths Cocoon Booking agency and developed into a proper club-dj over the last years. He even released his first solo-12" on Cocoon Recordings in 2012 which marked his final arrival in the techno business. Tietjens progression as a DJ is clearly noticeable here as he laid down a very elegant and smooth overall mix. He delivered one of the best of his mix-compilations so far. He starts the journey with two Matt John and one Minilogue track which creates a very moody and warm introduction. The transition into the following part can be seen as a kind of "warm up" one would like to hear in a good technoclub. Next in the mix are Adam Port, Popof (Animal & Me) and Nick Curly who step by step feed the mix with more energy. From minute 22 onwards the mix starts to kick in and the bass-cabinets of your speakers should defintely move stronger now. New Release Information Pele & Shawnecy, Sante & Frank, André Galluzzi & Dana Ruh are the following names in the mix and together with the next track by Mauro Picotto & Riccardo Ferri we have four strong collaborations waiting in this section of the CD. It seems the "techno duet" is the new way to create cool club music these days. The amount of energy here is triggering the right senses and beams us back to the high days of the Cocoonclub Frankfurt, the Cocoon Ibiza nights or all these infamous summer open airs. Nice one! The ending section is based on tracks by wAFF, Julien Bracht, Temma Teje, Uner and Mind Against and it is the dignified counterpart to the elegant beginning. Tietjen manages to swing out as smooth as he started the mix. To cut a long story short: "Neun" turns out to be a very nice overview of what has happened over the last months in the Cocoon Recordings universe and it defintely calls out for more...number ten we are waiting!
