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

Cocoon Ibiza – date 18



Heavens preserve us. We have a total monster coming your way. Everything has had a ring a ding ding these precious previous weeks. A fierce fiesta last Monday had Sven and Ilario rejoicing on the terrace until the sun came up and Nina Kraviz pummelling the main room after Dana Ruh had teased and twirled her way through the early hours. The taste left in our mouths was once again so sweet and dense we will try and bottle it. Hanging out with you lot on a Monday as the season wends its way to the close – hard to put into words.

Here we go with what might well be a classic. The penultimate gig, the last from our two exclusive heroes :

On the terrace :

RICARDO VILLALOBOS
It was Zip 2 weeks ago. Ricardo followed the Perlon prince with a precocious set that flew around the terrace and sealed a really memorable night of music. 3 vital artists seamlessly delivered an experience we will never forget. Tonight two more of his closest are here for another voyage. We truly do not think you can get this anywhere else. This crowd . This setting.

RARESH
The utterly wonderful Raresh is second up. His first visit this year and we have been dribbling about this and having our sleep patterns disrupted. Whenever Ricardo and Raresh are on the same stage just somehow be there. They are going to move you .

SONJA MOONEAR
The fourth and final Cocoon of the year from a sonic Swiss siren who just happens to be the most perfect person to invite you into the night. 2 outstanding joyous sets on the terrace under her belt. Set your alarm

In the Club :

RICHIE HAWTIN
Oh my goodness. That gig on the terrace at the beginning of September was something else entirely. It was the brilliant Adam Beyer and then that breathtaking Hawtin set. It really was – well, you just had to be there. Tonight is not only the last of the Richie exclusive Ibiza shows for Cocoon but it is the first in the main room. We are going to get the full treatment. We are going to be hypnotised

MATADOR LIVE
Well named. We pride ourselves every season on presenting the cream of the Live performers. This year is no exception, some stunning sets, and we climax with the explosive talent that is Matador. Gavin is going to cook your goose, do not miss a second of this.

FABIO FLORIDO
Welcome to the big house Fabio. You already made some waves over in Tipic on our Cocoon Thursday’s and we look forward to hearing your naughty tunes again tonight, setting up a classic in the Club.

There have been some very special and different affairs landing every Monday in Amnesia. This one is going to pop your cork. There is something in the air.

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!

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.

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!
