Cocoon Ibiza – The Grand Closing Party



The last hurrah, the closing of Cocoon Ibiza is one of the events of every season – it has been for 18 years. This is the night where we all come together on the dance floor. We keep this crisp. We just want to see you there. 6 artists that all bring something different to the table. Music lovers rejoice, we have one last Cocoon

On the terrace :

SVEN VÄTH
We say yet again that this man is a machine, in a sensual pounding relentless way. The breadth and depth of the music he has played us this year is staggering. Tonight for the 18th time Sven will play the final set of Cocoon Ibiza. Extraordinary. And yes, unmissable.

HENRIK SCHWARZ LIVE
A perfect partner for our closing. We will be front and centre for another stunning Henrik live show. He has blown us away every time these last years and this will not be any different. A class act.

DJ KOZE
We have said it before but when Koze is on the same stage as Sven in Amnesia things get so terribly tasty. Infectious music to get you started on the terrace from an infectious personality who is also a magician behind the decks.

In the Club :

ADAM BEYER
Sets this year that have laid golden eggs. Really memorable stuff and this is somehow a bloke who just keeps getting better. Adam has the ability to hook you like a fish and thats it. Finito. Your arms and legs take over. Get caught as he closes the main room for the last time this year.

ILARIO ALICANTE
Unstoppable, irrepressible and as you will find after the first 2 or 3 tracks tonight irresistible. In demand throughout Europe and beyond he signs off a huge summer in Amnesia tonight and the floor will be jumping

DANA RUH
A year to remember for Dana and we had no hesitation in bringing her in to open up the night in the main room. Dana can do it all, tonight she will get you in exactly the right mood for some of the biggest artists of the year

Thank you everyone who has made our 18th season so very special. Outstanding music, incredible crowds and an atmosphere like no other. Now please join us for the last time in Amnesia in 2017. No one says adios like Cocoon

Extrawelt - Fear Of An Extra Planet LP

Artist: Extrawelt
Release: CORLP041
Release Medium: 3x12" LP & Digital & CD
Release Date: 20th October 2017

Tracklist:

EXTRAWELT are back! Although in fairness, they were never gone. On the contrary, since their first release on James Holden's Border Community Label dropped in 2005, Arne Schaffhausen and Wayan Raabe have been responsible for a plethora of classics including "Schöne Neue Extrawelt" and "In Aufruhr", their two seminal albums on Cocoon Recordings. The duo are one of the most booked live acts worldwide, commanding a huge fan base. Their performances are the stuff of legend, making them the absolute highlight at every club and festival they play. So it’s with great pride and respect, that we can announce the release of Extrawelt’s third album for Cocoon Recordings. "Fear Of An Extra Planet" completes the Cocoon trilogy and the excitement growing among their fans represents a new high in the history of EXTRAWELT!

Musically, of course, there’s enormous pressure on EXTRAWELT to deliver, but this is dismissed with a playful disregard and they are clearly focused on the job in hand. The album title "Fear Of An Extra Planet" sounds cinematic, like some art-house science fiction film, without giving too much away. However, from the first seconds of the opening track "Superposition", the album title makes 100% sense and sets the scene for the rest of the trip. We are immersed in wide open spaces and invited to explore dark and dusky worlds that transport us back to their Border Community years. Timeless and elegant, "Superposition" perfectly captures the epic, dream like quality that made James Holden's label so influential.

Second up, "Gott ist Schrott" takes a much more minimalist approach with its retro 80s drum programming, monster bass lurking in the breaks and playful Rhodes/synth riffs that span the divide between early German techno and deep Detroit electro with a distinctive film soundtrack aesthetic. "Oddification" continues this theme, adding extra spice reminiscent of the techno-synth vibe of Detroit with a punchy, almost Prodigy-style breakbeat complete with shredded vocal samples that gives us a taste of what’s in store. "Gentle Venom" then takes the breakbeat motif to the next stage. The main focus here is the classy sprinter of a bassline, peppered with a flurry of intricate and subtle effects and modulations, that immediately trigger an intense, movie-like ‘in pursuit’ feeling.

With „Das Grosse Flimmern" we cautiously approach the album’s high point. It’s still in keeping with the soundtrack aesthetics, but faster and with more urgency. Almost hypnotically, Extrawelt invade us with an energy and impetus that always radiates from their music. Next in line is "Silly Idol" and here Arne Schaffhausen and Wayan Raabe opt again for a more minimal tack, focusing even more intensely on the dance floor to reveal a pulsing, twisted heart to the album.

"Punch The Dragon" is the hidden gem of the collection, utilising and melting together the most bombastic and playful elements. This one is totally off the hook, a sensory overload in an acoustic widescreen format! Then we have the title track "Fear Of An Extra Planet" which perfectly sums up the album concept. It opens up like a film score, with minimal passages following dark sequences that morph into dreamy melodies, all grounded by cool, constantly alternating analogue drum patterns. If you’re not listening closely, you might get the impression that three or four different titles are mixed together; such is the effortless flow of the album.

As we near our destination, "The Friendly Coroner" really does honour its name. The morbid charm of the title is captured by a fluid bassline and melodic arrangements that border on the absurd, until the funky drum beat finally drops. In our mind’s eye we see a cheerful medical doctor removing his bloody gloves, hanging his smock in the closet and vibing out in his neon drenched workspace. And there we sit, glued to our cinema seat, submerged in the different textures EXTRAWELT have conjured up on "Fear Of An Extra Planet". Over the course of the last title, the strings usher in the final acknowledgments as the credits roll. The dramatic end of "2084" leaves us transfixed in front of a black screen in a large, dark room safe in the knowledge that we’ve just witnessed a science fiction epic.

Sven Väth - Sound of the 18th season

Artist: Sven Väth
Release: CORMIX057
Release Medium: CD & Digital
Release Date: 17th November 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.

Extrawelt - Blackout EP

Artist: Extrawelt
Release: COR12149
Release Medium: 12" & Digital
Release Date: 9th October 2017

Tracklist:
(A1) Fear Of An Extra Planet (Black Out)
(B1) Hail the Whale

Finally, the long awaited third part of the EXTRAWELT trilogy on Cocoon Recordings is on the way, and with this advance 12" release of "Fear Of An Extra Planet (Blackout)" and "Hail The Whale" we are given an incredibly strong first impression of EXTRAWELT's third Album. 

"Fear Of An Extra Planet (Blackout)" in particular, has the potential to become a monumental club hit. The title track from the new EXTRAWELT album is, strictly speaking, more than just a maxi-version, it's almost a separate EXTRAWELT remix of the original, fully optimized for the clubs. Arne Schaffhausen and Wayan Raabe have let loose a real bass and drum monster on us.

From the very first second, the doubled-up kick bursts from the bassbins to signal the journey into this new EXTRAWELT adventure is underway. The acid-heavy bassline completes the pressure-packed arrangement until the track suddenly stops dead. Sometimes it's just so simple and effective to completely hit the brakes before re-energizing and building up to full speed again. The 12" version of "Fear Of An Extra Planet (Blackout) "is a powerful techno bomb and for us - one of the highlights of the year!
 
The exclusive, non-album cut "Hail the Whale", starts off a little more subdued. However, the cool old-skool cowbell intro with light Chicago house touches soon develops an energy through a driving electro bassline that shakes us from the initial calm. Although "Hail the Whale" doesn't appear on the album, it perfectly represents the science fiction sound aesthetics on EXTRAWELT's new LP. Sci-fi FX, distorted vocals and dramatic synth lines envelop us in an extremely intense soundtrack atmosphere. From warp speed space travel to misty wastelands on strange planets and breathtaking pursuit scenes, "Hail the Whale" conjures up all manner of images as it hammers from the speakers. To be honest, the notion of "grand cinema" has already been used too often but in this case it just fits! We are primed and we are ready for the new EXTRAWELT!

Release Date: 4th September 2017

Tracklist:

The almighty Cocoon 10“ series is back and it is swedish techno grand wizzard JOEL MULL and italian freshman JA:CK who gives us the rush on the floor this time! After his last Cocoon Release "Harmonautic String" Joel Mull presents a deep techno-dub-monster this time. „Duke of Huddinge“ is a long builder with a slight Craig/„Throw“ touch that keeps on growing and growing. This is super deep techno with lots of space, echoes and even dark melody bits. What to play at the next after hour when the sun is reaching high noon? Joel Mull has the answer!

Coming up next is „Nattura“ by italian rookie JA:CK. Hells Bells meets a Guy Gerber harmonies with a strong hypnotic appeal. This is a musical journey on the dance floor and the long ending part is an unbelievable mix-outro for all the DJs out there who know how to use this properly. Insane and romantic at the same time, this is JA:CK, this is „Nattura“ - benvenuto nel club!
