Seasoned producer Oliver Kapp takes us back to the glory days of underground techno where pounding sound systems ruptured the space time continuum for fun. The old guard will already know that Kapp has pedigree, from running and releasing on his own record labels Indulge and Raygun to a string of appearances on Stockholm LTD, Logistic and Gigolo, his dedication to the cause is unquestionable. Which is why his first appearance on Cocoon Recordings is long overdue.

What we get are DJ friendly tools designed for that time of night when the the second hand stops ticking. Kapp presents a perfect collection of timeless warehouse techno, like the genre itself there are no beginnings or ends, just a constant barrage of hi octane machine funk, underpinned by heavy duty beats that somehow manage to induce a sense of weightlessness on the dance floor.

Scaling down the bpms to a sub 130 tempo, the EP is a masterclass in how to balance the old school with the new. „Loud Whisper“ is both tough and relentless, generating an hypnotic state that ensnares the dancer in suspended animation as strobe lights flicker across closed eyelids. Scattered hihats motor forward and trance inducing sequences splice and dice causing mind and body to drift apart. „Mantash“ is an altogether gentler excursion. Loose tribal rhythms slalom through the metronomic kicks before giving way to distant chords that embrace the dancefloor in a warm fuzzy glow. This lush vibe extends over the rest of the track while the beats roll on, accompanied by delicate melodies that enhance the ride. Euphoria and delirium combine on the aptly titled „Rapture“, as chopped up vocal fx alternate across a hard hitting 909 pattern complete with angular snares and ride cymbals that bang the box into submission. The fluid, rolling grooves of „Sketch“ then conclude proceedings in a flurry of delayed percussion lines that skim the surface while pressure builds from below. Even at breaking point, Kapp never overcooks his arrangements, utilizing a carefully controlled combination of elements that evenly span the frequency range.

Oliver Kapp‘s „Mantash“ EP on Cocoon Recordings signals a return to the roots of the scene.
It’s an absolute must for all the purists out there.

Legowelt - Disco Rout Remixes

Artist: Legowelt
Release: COR12164
Release Medium: 12" Vinyl & Digital
Release Date: 17th May 2019

Tracklist:
Disco Rout (Tuff City Kids Remix)
Legowelt – Disco Rout (Catz ‘N Dogz Remix)
Legowelt – Disco Rout (Younger Rebinds Remix 2)
Legowelt – Disco Rout (Original Mix)

Occasionally the stars align to create something truly special. Well, without beating around the bush, that’s what we’ve got for you here. Not only a classic Legowelt hymn that’s ripe for a revisit but three quality remixers (Tuff City Kids, Catz 'N Dogz and Younger Rebinds aka Benny Rodrigues) turning in scandalously good remixes for Cocoon Recordings. Yes, we’re spoiling you...but you’re worth it!

Disco Rout first surfaced in 2002. The electro revival that had ushered in the new millennium was in full swing and this was to prove a seminal tune, being voted track of the year by Groove magazine. As if to prove a point the bass line still grabs you the moment it drops, while the laser-guided melodies feel as relevant today as they ever did. Fusing the past with a neon future, Legowelt’s complex interwoven elements fit like a glove and the clarity of the mix makes everything seem effortless. Maybe that‘s why it’s such a fascinating track to revisit, having already been remixed over the years by the likes of Deetron, Johannes Heil and Freeform Five.

Anyway, this current crop of remixes are equally top notch starting with Tuff City Kids who do what they do best, serving up an organic, conga driven workout complete with percolating synthetic percussion, cut up vocals and silky smooth choral pads. Warping and flanging the original riffs into an infectious, state-of-the-art revamp, they stay true to the retro vibe with added emphasis on the vocal hook for a more pronounced breakdown that briefly trips out before regrouping and taking flight once more.

Following hot on their heels is a screamer from Catz ’N Dogz who drop the tempo slightly, layering a metallic cowbell motif over a tough, robotic disco groove that adds extra swagger to the bass line. The original parts gradually spiral into view, cranking up the pressure till we hit a solid state of euphoria that in turn, disintegrates into freaky alien chatter. There’s no let up though, as squawking synths lock on to the rhythm and everything evolves into a full-on percussive outro.

So far, so fantastic. You would think there’s nowhere left to go after being blasted into outer space a couple of times already but we’re not done yet. Last but not least, Dutch master Benny Rodrigues aka ROD steps up under his Younger Rebinds alias with even more intensity than demonstrated on last year’s ‘Sound of Benny EP’ on Running Back. Picking apart the original with almost forensic attention to detail, he gives new life to each individual strand with an exhilarating mix that seems destined to leave its mark on dance floors around the globe throughout the summer and beyond. The second of his two remixes is included here, both having featured on a much sought after Cocoon Recordings limited edition white label. Remix two compliments the precision of the first with a more freestyle approach that’s in one hell of a rush to get going. The bass line rips through the mix, hihats scurry toward the cavernous, arpeggiated breakdown and we’re drenched in reverb as the synths dovetail dangerously, all the while paying homage to the hi-octane energy of the original. Rodriguez effortlessly toys with the crowd, frying the synapses and gorging on serotonin, as the mix motors relentlessly to its conclusion.

The Disco Rout remix EP is a shameless riot of sound that succeeds in doing something very special - by staying true to Legowelt’s vision, the artists involved not only demonstrate their notable skills as remixers but reaffirm the quality of a classic and timeless piece of music.

Disco Rout first surfaced in 2002. The electro revival that had ushered in the new millennium was in full swing and this was to prove a seminal tune, being voted track of the year by Groove magazine.
As if to prove a point the bass line still grabs you the moment it drops, while the laser-guided melodies feel as relevant today as they ever did. Now with this limited hand stamped whitelabel Dutch master Benny Rodriguez aka ROD steps up under his new Younger Rebinds alias with even more intensity than demonstrated on last year’s ‘Sound of Benny EP’ on Running Back. Picking apart the original with almost forensic attention to detail, he gives new life to each individual strand in the form of two exhilarating mixes that seem destined to leave their mark on dance floors around the globe for the foreseeable future.
Remix one strips things down to the raw, dirty basics giving the phasing bass riff some real breathing space as the hook line slowly unfurls amid a flurry of filtered ADSR madness to create absolute havoc. A series of peaks and troughs ensue, as Rodriguez effortlessly toys with the crowd, frying the synapses and gorging on serotonin, as the mix motors relentlessly to its conclusion.
Remix two replaces the precision of the first with a more freestyle approach that’s in one hell of a rush to get going.

Definition Synematique -
Mario Hammer And The Lonely Robot create another stunning cinematic soundscape, rich in both emotional and musical intelligence.

In many respects, music has the ability to capture intensely personal emotions, transcend language and make the indescribable tangible for others. Should I smile, cry or drift off through the universe when I hear a melody? It even has the power to mystically connect this melting pot of emotions simultaneously. This then, is the domain of Mario Hammer And The Lonely Robot and those who have followed their career know they have already demonstrated this impressive phenomenon on their two previous albums, transforming their personal feelings into unique musical soundscapes, creating an emotional interface that enables the listener to decode and then assimilate them collectively or as individual sensations.

True to form, they once again apply this syntactic assemblage to great effect on the new album "Définition Synematique" brought to you courtesy of Cocoon Recordings. Eighteen expansive tracks take the listener on a majestic mystery tour through a variety of moods that represent an artist at the peak of their creativity. This emotional, heartfelt approach, realised through a potent mixture of ambient, electronica and techno influences, gives this new work a cinematic sound signature all of its own. Intriguingly though, it also belongs to a rich tapestry of electronic composers dating back to Tangerine Dream and Jean-Michel Jarre albeit with a contemporary twist, rekindling the flame for a new generation of psychonauts as echoes from the dance floor weave their way into numerous chillout sessions around the globe.

Undoubtedly, the album tells a very personal story. Mario Hammer And The Lonely Robot succeed in evoking the same emotional state in the listener that they themselves felt during its creation, producing an album of real depth, innovation and distinction in the process.
