2017

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.

COCOON

Cocoon Ibiza – date 17



Last week was Sven all night long in the main room with some help from the masked marauder Redshape. It had been coming, it was explosive with Sven last Monday night. One of our loudest and a set of the season in the Club. Ricardo had two of his best chums with him on the terrace. Zip and Dorian Paic brought their immense knowledge and vinyl verve in support. It was an evening to be treasured yet again and now we head into the final furlong

with the a crowd of music lovers by our side – the 18th September features :

On the terrace :

SVEN VÄTH
The extraordinary year of Sven, the guv’nor bounds into September like a gazelle. He is a force of nature and there is nothing more to be said. Just enjoy whatever is thrown your way tonight, we are all scratching our heads yet moving our shoes.

ILARIO ALICANTE
Ilario is chasing Sven on the air mile ticker. The lad has been everywhere but tonight he is back here for a rare terrace appearance following his main room shows this year. Those of you that have seen his Tipic shows for Cocoon will be all over this one. A great Ilariyeario.

In the Club :

NINA KRAVIZ
The ascending star that is Nina descends again on the main room of Amnesia and once again we have no idea what to expect. Her shows have been so different and so brilliantly provocative. An important artist shuts the room tonight and this is her last show of the year with us. Miss it not.

DANA RUH
Dana is the sublime middle of this main room night. A hidden treasure starting to get the traction and attention her daring approach to music deserves. Dana is the gravy as everyone and his dog who has seen her recently will testify. We will be somewhere near you.

tINI
tINI knows how to get you organised as she showed with such gusto at the end of August, again in the Club. tINI always finds the tone and then plays with it and you. Effortlessly bright, always with a twist. Arrive early for the twists.

Always arrive early for Cocoon Ibiza. There are no fillers, only first quality fish in our tanks.

Cocoon Recordings presents COR12146, the dignified follow-up 12“ by Rico Puestel that we were waiting for so long. Cocoon head Sven Väth himself is dropping „Caravel“ for quite some time already and the godfather of German techno smashes floors around the globe with this hot and dirty bombshell. Take all of the rocking techno ingredients that you loved so much over the last decade and you get a melt down of Dustin Zahn, Industrial Strength Soundhack and many more milestones to name... however Puestel created a very unique own style out of all these influences and the result is simply outstanding. Sven played the acetate of this so often that we even had to cut a second one. Techno-trainspotter worldwide went mad for this one and were killing us with their requests and track- ID inquiries. The wait is over guys! „Caravel“ and „Est“ (on the flipside) are two cutting edge techno monsters that hold enough energy to power your car, your computer, your phone, your life...we cannot imagine what Rico will show us next ;)

Extrawelt - Fear Of An Extra Planet

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.

Joel Mull, JA:CK - Duke of Huddinge / Nattura

Artist: Joel Mull, JA:CK
Release: COR10012
Release Medium: 10" & Digital
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!

Nastia, Einzelkind - Cocoon Ibiza Mix

Artist: Nastia, Einzelkind
Release: CORMIX056
Release Medium: CD & Digital
Release Date: 24th August 2017

Tracklist:

The annual Cocoon Ibiza mix is back with another bang this summer with the essential 2017 edition mixed by two top talents in Nastia and Einzelkind.
Nastia is one of the hottest DJs in the world right now. The Ukrainian is headlining clubs and festivals around the globe and showcasing not only great technical skills but also a real breadth and depth of techno knowledge. Focussing on DJing rather than production, Nastia has also run her own festival, Strichka, and has been resident at key clubs Arma17, Fuse and Ampere. As such she is a perfect fit for this job.

Kicking off with vital veterans 100HZ, she wastes no time in getting down to a thumping, jazz-tinged groove. From there, techno pioneers like Luke Slater sit next to d&b don Calibre and Detroit legends like Terrence Dixon. The resulting mix is tight and cohesive, and journeys through acid, jacking drum tracks and driving stuff that never lets up.

Taking care of the second disc is Einzelkind, the German who runs three labels including JAX and Pressure Traxx and for more than a decade has been releasing on Get Physical, Playhouse and Cécille, amongst others. He is a no-nonsense DJ who has played the likes of fabric and Space, and as such has helped put his hometown of Frankfurt on the underground dance map.

His selections call upon plenty of his own tracks, both solo and produced with the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Robin Scholz and Markus Fix. The resulting 70 odd minute mix is more stripped back and cerebral than the first. It is always married to a slick underlying groove and is embellished with minimal synths and brain melting pads that work perfectly in the late night and freaky hours in the club. Always keeping you on your toes, it ducks and dives, bobs and weaves in fluid fashion, and is a nice heady yin to the more physical yang of disc one.

Once again then, both these CDs embody what it is to head to the legendary Cocoon party at Amnesia each Monday of an Ibiza summer.
