Azimute - The Secret

Artist: Azimute
Release: COR12148
Release Medium: 12" & Digital
Release Date: 29th January 2018

Tracklist:
(A1) The Secret (Original Mix)
(A2) The Secret (Quenum & Cesare vs Disorder Mix)
(B1) The Secret (Cristi Cons Remix)

Azimute are Cesare Marchese and Swiss producer Philippe Quenum, who’s certainly no stranger to in-the-know techno heads. Although they have just seven releases under their belt, they’ve actually had output on labels like Crosstown Rebels or even Transmat in a relatively short period of time. Now they’ve found their way on to Cocoon Recordings and what the pair conjour up together leaves us totally speechless.

"The Secret" gives us a glimpse of what we’ve just described because as it stands, Azimuth are still something of an insider tip. Intriguingly, their Cocoon debut contains one of the highest ‘soul’ factors of any of our releases, packed with beguiling vocals and click-clacking percussion sounds from the shallows of the techno-sound universe. Meanwhile the additional house mix is decorated with warmand hypnotic filter chords as Azimute serve up a production of incredible intensity and depth.

These two original versions certainly get things off on the right foot and will no doubt be receiving a lot of attention over the coming weeks, but that’s not all. There’s also a Cristi Cons remix on top that unfolds over 11 minutes and 34 seconds in true Villalobos or Cadenza style as the legend unleashes his minimal vibe, opening yet another fascinating musical door. So there you have it - three versions that are by no means commonplace but have already been on heavy rotation for days! Mile grace Azimute!

Butch, Kölsch - Countach

Artist: Butch, Kölsch
Release: COR12150
Release Medium: 12" & Digital
Release Date: 5th March 2018

Tracklist:
(A1) Butch - Countach (Original Mix)
(B2) Butch - Countach (Kölsch Remix)

There’s a big reason to celebrate, as we face the 150th release on Cocoon Recordings! That’s right, 150 prime cuts with a number of milestones. It’s hard to single out any one for particular praise but even so, we still have something very special planned for the anniversary. With a certain affection, we wanted to present an artist from the region so it’s with great pleasure that we can unveil “Countach” from the one and only Butch, as a more than worthy anniversary release. The native Mainzer and sometime Berliner is without doubt one of the most dazzling German Tech-House artists of the
moment. His performances contain a full dose of funkiness and his self-made promo videos never fail to entertain, providing a lot of fun in the process. First and foremost though, Butch is an exceptional producer, who, as one of the chosen few, knows how to mix together those special ingredients that drag us onto the dance floor again and again. What’s more, since we really have something to celebrate, we don’t just have an original from Butch, it’s accompanied by a remix from none other than Kölsch!

If the term "man of the moment" applies to any artist then it’s got to be Kölsch! At least that’s true when it comes to hypnotic techno with a subtle yet seductive touch of trance. Kölsch is currently operating on another level. Whatever he touches turns to gold, turns moments on the dance floor into unforgettable experiences to be written down in the annals of techno. His Kompakt release "Cassiopeia", as well as his remixes including the Chemical Brothers, stand out as musical testimonies of the past two years. The series of musical landmarks from the house of Kölsch is endless and his remix of Butch’s "Countach" is no exception!

With poise and purpose like the Lamborghini of the same name, Kölsch takes us on an epic journey with his remix here, but as things progress he still has the foresight to jams on the brakes, keeping the dance floor honest by slowing things down to cruise control for the middle of his ride. What a trip, a true adventure, a techno road movie that could only come from Kölsch!

Of course, after a remix like that, there’s not much left to say but this is techno and our man Butch is anything but normal! He just knows instinctively how to bring things to the boil and demonstrates it very impressively again on his original version. Implementing a ‘nasty’ arpeggio line that captivates us before being hunted down by a prime-time filter, Butch summons up an acid monster that works without a 303 but is no less effective. If that’s not enough Butch also proves himself a master of ecstatic dance during the closing sections, serving up an emotional string arrangement that glimmers and shines. As a result, “Countach” with his nice fat strings becomes an instant dance floor catcher. It’ll probably be very difficult to pick a favourite from these two mixes, which makes this cut even fatter! It’s a great release brimming with pathos and full-on emotions.

Rico Puestel - 973272

Artist: Rico Puestel
Release: COR12151
Release Medium: 12" & Digital
Release Date: 11th December 2017

Tracklist:
(A1) 973
(B1) 272

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. "973" picks up exactly where "Caravel" left off, kicking powerfully with irresistable, effect-loaded breaks that really twist your melon. This one really works you over but there's also feeling and a touch of elegance, in fact we can't remember hearing anything like this since Len Faki's Dustin Zahn Remix! "973" proves that "Caravel" was no flash in the pan, just one tantalising glimpse into the musical world of Rico Puestel and that's not the end of it... "272" is a little more stripped down and chilled to start with, but soon opens up into the same crazy atmosphere as "973". This is dominated by an up-and-running arpeggio synth, which combines with the now familiar effects-break motif to create an incredible hypnotic effect. A little less brutal than "973" but drenched in more reverb, "272" is something like "kicking Deep Techno" with a nod to the Tech House corner in the style of Mark Broom or Joris Voorn.

Mr. Puestel serves up two choice cuts here and there's no question that 973272 will be with us for a while.
Buckle up, hold tight and off we go!

Sven Väth - Sound of the 18th season

Artist: Sven Väth
Release: CORMIX057
Release Medium: CD & Digital
Release Date: 1st December 2017

Tracklist:

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: Väth 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.

Väth tunes into the Sound of the 18th Season on a gentle note. Just a touch of a vocal and a fluttering riff display a sense adventure. Willow arouses our curiosity for the night, the people, the laughs and for electronic music. A little later, the groove becomes more insistent and Eduardo de la Calle from Madrid has the crowd gather around his pulsating bassline and crackling hi-hats. With sparing chords, the Spaniard reaches us as sensitive, emotional beings.

With the daring sing-a-long of Basti Grub, Väth shows his playful side and another, deep, scratchy voice flashes a profound humor which is superseded by the nonchalance and coolness of Eddie Fowlkes and singer Na Dee. With Fort Romeau, processed voices spread a trippy, unreal vibe and give us an inkling of what is to be expected in the second part of the set. Moments later, Väth blends a new, very special bassline into the mix, which has been composed by no other than ever full of joie de vivre Chez Damier. Ricardo Villalobos's casual, eye-opening grooves appear to be the ideal counterbalance to Damier´s unbounded bassline. Damier and Villalobos whisper and laugh, repeating the word "Conspiracy" over and over again. Väth senses a hidden relation between Villalobos and John Tejada, whose improbable, space-grabbing synthesizer sounds can be felt all the way from the soles of our feet to our scalp. With DJ Slyngshot, the mix becomes more physical and raw. But Väth does not abandon the subtlety of the first part of the mix. With Paul, he immerses himself deeper into the iridescent, psychedelic dynamics of the music. With his unique blend of joy and serenity, Isolée manages to express the magic of electronic dance music in just one perfect track. The spacey, retro-futuristic sounds of Kink set a first high point and with Adam Port & Stereo MC's, Väth gives us a short breather before taking off to the second part of the mix with one of the mind-blowing hits of 2017.

"Avalon" by &Me puts a hymnic vocal and unbridled tribal percussions on top of a floating house groove creating an unimagined, spiritual depth. Patrice Baeumel absorbs this pathos and creates a sonic vastness which has us connect to the sublime beauty of the universe. With Fideles, Väth resolves this tension in loose synth-sounds. The ghostly "On the Way" by Gaiser with its uncanny voices feels like a message from another, surreal world. With the crazy, tempestuous synths of Aubrey, Väth gives us an impression of the bold endgame of the 18th season, of the state we will be in as we leave the party. Only moments later, he already pushes us a step further with a wonderfully immediate Chicago-House-Stomper from Slam. "Clap your hands just a little bit louder", the singer keeps repeating, full of passion. With Electric Rescue, Väth grants us sense of safety and relief. But just for a moment. Väth tunes into the finale with ROD's "Hor". For a moment, madness erupts out of raw energy on the dancefloor. With Secret Cinema & Egbert, Väth is lingering for a moment to reach a new climax in the unlikely mix of sirens and shouts of Peder Mannerfelt & Hodge, which is topped by Rico Puestel with carnevalesque turbulence. Väth plays Barnts “If she says she is a healer, she is a healer”, one of the truly magical numbers of the year. Barnt manages to fuse the mysterious, the remote and the immediate into one sound. Then it´s already time to say good bye. But with Väth the end is not the end. Inigo Kennedy's groping, longing sounds suggest a new beginning and with the incredible strings of Paul Nazca we are already in the next chapter of Sven Väth's fabulous journey.

Väth's 18th season on Ibiza was one of the most beautiful in years. With Nina Kraviz, Adam Beyer, Ricardo Villalobos and Richie Hawtin, the most amazing artists techno and house have to offer appeared each for a couple of nights. The lucky ones who already partied with Cocoon know that the bedsprings have to wait for long hours as the afterparties are legendary. This year, things went totally overboard at this seaons´s closing party at KM5. So you might already feel a yearning for season 19. Until that happens, you might meet Sven at one of the fascinating places he will turn into mad houses during winter and spring.
