We are delighted to announce our 8th season!

These Thursdays on Formentera are now part of the Cocoon Ibiza summer experience. The big guns, the favourites and the surprising guests will all be hopping over the water. On this snorting little dance floor you get up close and personal with the artists but somehow always make new friends. It is that sort of place.  Arrive early and warm up or down in this beautiful club. Details of an incredible line-up for 2018 are coming very soon.

JA:CK is back to showcase his first solo release on Cocoon Recordings.

Tuscany smells of pines and good food, the sea spoils you just like good wine and lots of sun. For some time now we here at Cocoon have been connecting with Tuscany through the legendary Cocoon events at the Tini Soundgarden in Cecina and since last year Segnore JA:CK has also joined our Tuscany vision.

Following on from his track "Naturra" on the 10" with Joel Mull (2017), we’re proud to present two new tracks by the Tuscan artist, which once again possess their very own charm. Dry and grainy, they still come across housey and sexy and to put us properly in the picture, JA:CK’s called the release "Paprika" - short and crisp, red hot and spicy - that's alright with us! Listen up as we bring the Tuscany vibes to the festivals and to Ibiza this summer. Signore e signori: Ecco il tuo uomo!

Techno in 2018 and Cocoon Recordings in 2018: What on earth is left when everything has already been said, done, produced, sampled and triggered, then revisited and re-imagined once again for good measure – and all that, knowing full well the wheel can't actually be reinvented... but hang on a second, isn't that exactly the point? Isn't that the real core of this music? It just keeps on turning like a great, infinite wheel!

The revolution in sound, that magical moment at the very beginning is now, admittedly, a distant memory. To this day however, the origins of the movement reappear time and again as stylistic features in current productions. The uncompromising, distorted rhythms of Detroit, the euphoria of UK Acid House and the subsequent “Second Summer of Love“ or the magical "Bring Down The Walls" vibe of Germany’s post-reunification years which still shapes the Berlin scene today, not forgetting of course, the Hessian excess of the Techno-freaks from Frankfurt.... all this has very little to do with contemporary Techno. The meaningful element of this music, the true core of quality techno lies in itself, not in what once was or where it came from. That's exactly why this music still works, even for those who have been on the bus from day one.

In the meantime, the wheel has turned so far that every conceivable genre has been defined and then packed full of memorable moments. Techno, Minimal, House, Tech House, Deep House, Electro, EDM, Acid etc, etc, etc. Names, styles, references... it’s all smoke and mirrors. Yes, they certainly help us to categorise a track on first listening, but it’s listening to the music, dancing to it and simply letting it be that’s by far the most important thing. Society as a reflection of cultural development shows us where persistent labelling can lead. Left, right, up, down, all this ultimately leads us to lose sight of what’s really important. Music and dancing connect people, overcome language barriers, skin colours and national borders and we have to start looking at our music in this light. Almost 30 years after the Second Summer Of Love, it's time to classify our music not by origin and category, but by the feelings it triggers and how it works.

Which brings us to Cocoon Recordings and above all to Cocoon Head Sven Väth, who demands exactly this from himself and "his" music. Few other DJs embody the ability to "think outside the box" like Frankfurt’s honorary citizen, whether he’s dropping Sade’s version of "Why Can't We Live Together" to close out the night or ushering in Monday morning with the Bangles’ "Just Another Manic Monday". Of course Sven and Cocoon are also synonymous with Techno, nevertheless we should look back over the last few years of Cocoon Recordings with great pride and recognise that strict style guidelines and exaggerated pigeonholing no longer apply. It’s especially true for the compilation series, which having now reached the letter R(ecordings), impressively shows the arc the Frankfurt label’s output continues to span. From soft and melodic with a lot of depth to highly functional and extremely crisp – there’s a creative range on offer that very few labels can boast.
"I listen to and play everything that I like and that touches me. I always pack a genre-spanning record bag, I’m particularly interested in those special tracks - that's exactly how my vision of Cocoon Recordings is about!" (Sven Väth).

The current compilation "R" not only continues this idea, it is a prime example of the label’s philosophy. The illustrious circle of artists on the latest compilation is peppered with such prominent names as Isoleé, Lusine, Pig&Dan, Inigo Kennedy, Ambivalent & Alden Tyrell, ROD and Mano Le Tough. Label representative and Frankfurt original Ingo Boss is once again on board and with contributions from International Anything, John Heckle, Cristi Cons and Eduardo De La Calle, promising new faces from further afield are also represented. Of course, all this doesn’t say much about the actual content, but that's exactly what it's about. Known vs. unknown, origins, discography etc, it’s not important on this LP-Box. Cocoon Recordings delivers what the label stands for and what it does best: promoting new artists, bringing celebrity names on board and above all, not building any musical walls either on or off the dancefloor. With releases like this, it’s clear to us that the journey is ongoing and the wheel will continue to spin. All we have to do is join in and stop trying to label everything we don't know and put it in a box. Our music isn't new anymore, but it remains great and has the energy to connect us, no matter what category or subcategory it belongs to.

That’s enough talk for now... "Go out and start dancing!" (Franz Beckenbauer)

DMT / Fabe - Ride / Last Shot Of Bob

Artist: DMT / Fabe
Release: COR10014
Release Medium: 10"
Release Date: 25th May 2018

Tracklist:
(A1) DMT - Ride
(B1) Fabe - Last Shot Of Bob

DMT aka Dorian Paic, Markus Fix and Tobi Neumann dig a little deeper on their next offering. “Ride" does exactly what it says on the tin, taking you on a nine-minute journey that starts with an extended build-up, offering a tantalising glimpse of what’s to come. From then on, House chords and dub elements abound, complemented throughout by beguiling melodic lines, hypnotic vocal samples, effects and some smooth filter action. This co-production from three Tech House specialists harmonises perfectly, creating a well-rounded, homogeneous track that leaves you craving for more!

Born in Berlin but ‘living the life’ in Mannheim, Fabe is the next insider tip on Cocoon worth keeping an eye on. Already shaking up clubs around the world, he’s also part of the Cocoon Ibiza line up this year! However he’s not only turning heads as a DJ, his productions also work on an extremely high level featuring a unique sound signature. His Cocoon Recordings track "Last Shot For Bob" creaks, growls, clatters, squeaks and knocks in all directions creating an incredibly cool and, above all, groovy sound. It’s electronic noise-funk served up in the best techno and house fashion, that drags you onto the dance floor and drenches you in pleasure.
