As we reach the 19th year of Cocoon’s residence on Ibiza, the location may have changed from Amnesia to Pacha, but the enthusiasm for perhaps the most enduring party on the Mediterranean island is guaranteed to continue. Actually, only the sun, sea and wind are more reliable!

The celebrated live sets of Bulgaria’s life wire Strahil Velchev aka KiNK have been a vital ingredient for the ecstatic nights over the years. With unprecedented regularity, the man from Sofia has been voted best live act by readers of Groove magazine for the last three years, and in 2017 he was also crowned best electronic music producer. As KiNK, together with Sven Väth, celebrate one of the most popular evenings of this year’s season as well, what could be more logical than to repurpose the famed Cocoon Ibiza Mix CD series into another live document of the event?

No sooner said than done, and so here the Bulgarian offers a 70-minute cross-section of his skills. Well-known tracks, especially from last year's "Playground” LP (Running Back) meet exclusive, unreleased material in a spontaneous tour de force through the history of electronic dance music. There are distinctive nods to Chicago and Detroit, jazzy organs spiralling into string-drenched skies ("The Russian"), insatiable acid excursions ("Five") and heavy duty discoid workouts ("Use The Rhythm", "Perth") as KiNK’s irresistible nature strikes repeatedly at the heart of the dance floor.

The message as always is “gute Laune!” (good vibes!), if we are allowed to borrow that sacred phrase for just a moment...

Extrawelt - Unknown

Artist: Extrawelt
Release: CORLP044
Release Medium: 12", CD & digital
Release Date: 26th October 2018

Tracklist:
(A1) Extrawelt – We Are Asteroid!
(A2) Extrawelt – Fischmarkt On Acid
(B1) Extrawelt – Auslöser
(B2) Extrawelt – Ort Und Impuls
(C1) Extrawelt – Runway Hitchhiker

(E1) Extrawelt – Das Diktat
(E2) Extrawelt – Streetwise
(F1) Extrawelt - Die Zitrone Der Schöpfung
(F2) Extrawelt – Herzstück

Extrawelt are Arne Schaffhausen and Wayan Raabe. Both have been around for about 40 years, and making music together for half that time. They enjoy normal things and are ashamed of their carbon footprints due to the large number of flights they take to bring them to their gigs. Unknown, is the tenth studio album from the producer team, and the fourth under the name Extrawelt. Its largely devoted to another side of their creations.

Something’s different. Well, Extrawelt releases always have been somehow different yet, despite becoming instantly absorbed into the familiar Extrawelt atmosphere when listening, I can’t help but notice again: something’s very different. Feet are bouncing, mind is traveling and my fingers speed across the keyboard like they’re on fire. I’m trying to imagine what it would be like to listen to Unknown with closed eyes in the midst of a throbbing concert instead of through laptop speakers. Listening to Extrawelt on crappy speakers is anyway never a good idea, as it really deserves the backing of the loudest and best possible sound system. With this, I leave the audio confines of my low-fi laptop world and get in the car. Cranking up the stereo, I cruise around aimlessly — lost in appreciation of the music from within the bubble of my metal highway-pod on wheels. I’ve got the urge to speed up — which is surprising considering I’m a usually a very sensible driver. The bass and the beats blow up in my face. Something uncluttered. Something broken. Something grimy. Something sideways. Something undeniably Extrawelt, yet inherently different to what we’ve come to expect from the Hamburg pair. I don’t plan on getting all emotional, but something about this twelve track journey fits together so superbly it’s hard not to be overcome with at least a few shivers up the spine. With profound bass lines and cutting drums, I keep coming back to these sounds. Again and again these sounds. On one hand you feel that you know them, on the other hand you don't know them at all. Is that a synthesiser or a voice? Is it rotating or just linear reinvented? Whatever the answer, my mind goes astray. Whether this is exotic or native doesn't matter: all I know is that it’s great. Meanwhile I’ve reached track seven and now I realise what’s been different all along — it isn’t techno! Somehow, they’ve accomplished staying true to themselves despite deploying not even one four-to-the floor-bass drum. Admittedly, you can find a couple of similar tracks on a few of their previous releases, but here you’ve got a whole album full of it. I gotta listen to track seven again. As a music writer I’m asking myself: what genre of music is this actually? Neo-Electro? Alternative Electronica? Emo-EDM?? Ah, whatever — these guys don’t like to be put into boxes anyway. It’s simply Extrawelt.

As I talk to Arne and Wayan later on, I discover that the tracks on Unknown began simmering more than ten years ago without any goal or idea regarding if they’d end up releasing them. Come 2018 though, the time felt right to dedicate an entire album to this side of their musical spectrum. This also explains how Unknownappeared so quickly after their most recent LP ‘Fear Of An Extra Planet’. As the guys mention “We just felt these tracks a lot when we made them, and never cared really if anyone would be interested in it”.

We’re definitely interested!

Yours sincerely, Cocoon

Kevin De Vries - Meraki

Artist: Kevin De Vries
Release: COR12158
Release Medium: 12" & digital
Release Date: 28th September 2018

Tracklist:
(A1) Meraki
(B1) Sonorous
(B2) My Blurred Dream

Berlin producer Kevin De Vries has emerged as one of the capital's most hotly tipped newcomers since his track ”Eternity" appeared on Adam Beyer's Drumcode label in 2016. Besides such luminaries as Beyer, Sven Väth and Richie Hawtin, Tale Of Us have also recognised his talent, paying De Vries the compliment of featuring his track "Path To Immortality" on their Fabric 97 CD this year. If that’s not enough they’ve also given Kevin a place of honour on their very own Afterlife label compilation in the form of "Mágoa".

Which brings us to the matter in hand. De Vries' debut for Cocoon is characterised by significantly higher levels of impulsive energy without ever losing sight of his instinctive feel for harmony. "Meraki" speckles shimmering harmonic textures over the structured bass end, reminiscent of sunlight reflecting on turbulent seas - absolutely perfect for dancing through long summer nights! "Sonorous" orchestrates a tropical heatwave before the cyclical after-hour techno of "My Blurred Dream" brilliantly rounds off this heavy duty 3-tracker.

Ilario Alicante - Luce

Artist: Ilario Alicante
Release: COR12157
Release Medium: 12" + digital
Release Date: 7th September 2018

Tracklist:
(A1) Cocoon
(A2) Scelta
(B1) Luce
(B1) Senza

Highly revered techno DJ/producer Ilario Alicante has unveiled his brand new ‘Luce’ EP, consisting of four fresh tracks on Cocoon Recordings.

Recognised as a DJ of the highest order whilst playing at Berghain when he was still only 21, Ilario continues to go from strength to strength. An integral member of the respected Cocoon family, Ilario Alicante has become a regular at Cocoon Ibiza, elrow and DC10 during his career so far.

Made up of the titled track ‘Luce’, a cosmic production packed with synth-laced flutters, and the more dancefloor-ready ‘Scelta’; Ilario showcases his eclectic nature across the release. Using a high tempo through the shudders of ‘Cocoon’, the Italian rounds off the EP with the deeply atmospheric ‘Sensa’; with the latter’s rattles adding an intense nature to the production.
