Johannes Volk - Tears and Walls

Artist: Johannes Volk
Release: COR12152
Release Medium: 12" & Digital
Release Date: 13th April 2018

Tracklist:
(A1) Tears and Walls
(B1) A Story about time and space

Cocoon Recordings is back with a bang after the winter break, cranking up the pressure once again. What’s more, we’re seriously pleased that we’ve managed to land Johannes Volk for the new season. Johannes has been making us smile with his productions for more than 12 years and considering his 2006 debut appeared on Jeff Mills' "Axis" label, it's easy to guess which direction his Cocoon release is going. There are no dreamy minimal sounds or deep house trips this time round, instead you’ll find headstrong techno pumping out of the speakers.

"Tears & Walls" drives forward relentlessly with its meaty kick and metallic open hi-hats setting the pace. Energetic and demanding throughout, Johannes Volk certainly takes no prisoners! "A Little Story About Time And Space" follows in its footsteps although the mood here is notably more Detroit, taking us back to productions on cult labels like Red Planet, Metroplex or the Axis Records sound. Volk layers the track with more prominent harmonies and hypnotic arpeggios, giving it a subtle yet highly effective trance touch. The warm analog strings in the middle section underline this emotional impact and make "A Little Story About Time And Space" a guaranteed sunrise song for the upcoming spring and summer season; heartwarming and dance floor friendly in equal measures!

Tim Green - Echo / They want us to fall down

Artist: Tim Green
Release: COR12153
Release Medium: 12" & Digital
Release Date: 27th April 2018

Tracklist:
(A1) They want us to fall down
(B1) Echo

Tim Green will be returning to Cocoon for his first release on the label since March 2016, with an atmospheric new dual single. ‘Echo/They Want Us To Fall Down’. A cinematic production offering heavy shades of emotion, led by deep chords and rattling percussive sweeps from the expectation-defying producer

Tim first made his production debut on four:twenty in 2006, going on to release on Dirtybird and Get Physical before Cocoon tapped the young producer for his first EP on the label in 2011. Whilst the prolific studio head has continued to experiment on other respected labels such as Lee Burridge’s Get Weird label and Cityfox, Cocoon and Sven Vath have helped Tim’s productions reach the biggest dancefloors in Ibiza and across the globe. Clad with loop pedals and menacing synths, ‘Echo/They Want Us To Fall Down’ embodies TimGreen’s approach as a fiery live DJ; he’s been tapped by Sven Vath to play at Cocoon events around the globe (Amnesia Ibiza, Dockyard Festival, Mysteryland, Parookaville, off Sonar showcase at Pacha Barcelona) as well as solo at some of the world’s most respected clubs; Panorama Bar, WOMB Tokyo, Fabric London and Rex in Paris to name just a few. Now an internationally established and respected name, the release of ‘Echo/They Want Us To Fall Down’ is just the beginning of an exciting new chapter in Tim Green’s career.

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.

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!
