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.

Dewalta / Alex & Digby - Bitter Earth Dub / Citadel

Artist: Dewalta / Alex & Digby
Release: COR10013
Release Medium: 10" & Digital
Release Date: 6th November 2017

Tracklist:

It’s good to know those ‘wow!’ moments still exist, like when we heard the first few seconds of DeWalta's „Bitter Earth Dub“. First things first though... this latest adventure in Cocoon’s cult 10inch vinyl-only series comes from said David Koch aka DeWalta with Alex & Digby also turning heads with „Citadel“ on the flipside. Hailing from Berlin, DeWalta, has clearly been influenced by the musical heritage of Basic Channel or classics such as G-Man's Spartacus - a force and power that still has a place in the sets of Villalobos, Raresh and many other DJs, and rightly so. Timeless, kicking, reduced to the essentials but still interfused with daring space sounds and melodic shreds, „Bitter Earth Dub“ speaks to our deepest dance impulses, catches hold and doesn’t let go. We’re already calling out to Berlin for “more of the same” and looking forward to the next cuts to emerge from DeWalta’s Studio.

On the Flipside, the opening salvos of „Citadel“ suggest Alex & Digby are taking a much more minimal, electronic approach, however it soon veers off in a completely different direction. Deep organ harmonies meet Black Dog and B12-like sound effects and an almost soulful deepness takes hold as we immerse ourselves in the track. „Citadel“ offers the perfect canvas for DJs who like using acapellas to create their own remixes live in the club, but even in its original form, it’s still guarenteed to give the crowd goose bumps.
