We are still very much mourning the sad and sudden passing of our beloved friend Lars Helbig, known to many as Helly Larson and it’s a pure honour for us to put his latest Track „Quadral“ on this compilation to reflect our thoughts at this really hard time.
Der Dritte Raum – short D3R aka Andreas Krüger & Ralf Uhrlandt are possibly one of the most innovative liveacts Germany’s techno scene has brought forward since the early Nineties, the formative years when Frankfurt trance was growing into a national movement that would change the course of dance music in Germany forever and inspired countless individuals with its take on electronics. With two album releases on the incredibly influential Frankfurt Harthouse imprint, which was partly run by pioneer DJ Sven Väth, Techno Germany’s undisputed father figure who still spearheads the scene, and three album releases on Virgin, there is hardly any live act and producer duo as successful and innovative as D3R. Merging techno, trance, electro and house all into one to create their own distinctive sounds that has generations of ravers on their knees begging for more, it’s time to send them into frenzy again with another burner on the resurrected Harthouse imprint which lost nothing of its impact.
Release Date: Oct.20th 2017

The Berlin-based duo NAOMI is back with its sixth album Swim. The creative pause has generated space for fresh ideas and the record sounds calmer, more reduced and more optimistic while maintaining a melancholy note. Electro, alternative pop – Nico Tobias and Bernd Lechler don’t care much for genre definitions. Their focus is on great melodies, from the casual and mysterious opener Almost Talking via the almost sacral Melt The Key, the vocoder road movie Life Or Death or the nicely cheerful Get Up, Get Out Into The Rain to the final synthesizer riffs of the title track. You can excellently let yourself sink into these eleven songs, or, as required, laugh, cry, dance and spill beer, or just waste the day.
The Süddeutsche Zeitung wrote about Naomi’s last album The Big Shapes (2010) that the band, “in a fair world, would have to scramble with Lady Gaga for the top positions in the summer charts”; and also Rolling Stone and FAZ are already convinced. With its elegant and mature sound, Swim is a true enrichment for Germany’s pop landscape.
Cybordelics was founded in 1993 in Stuttgart, Germany. In the same year, Mike S., Milan Zemanec and Daniel Varga aka Cybordelics released their hit Adventures of Dama on Sven Väth’s label Harthouse. The record climbed up the UK dance charts to the 2nd place. People from London to Germany, especially in the legendary Omen Club in Frankfurt, danced to their techno anthems until the late afternoon. Today’s artists like Ricardo Villalobos, Sven Väth, Gregor Tresher, Chris Liebing, Gerd Janson or Anthony Rother were at the Omen club when this record was played for the first time, and they still consider Adventures of Dama a milestone in techno history.
23 years later, the Harthouse label begins 2017 with a Remix EP, featuring remixes by Ricardo Villalobos, Butch, Tuff City Kids starting a new era of the Harthouse story.
Minus 8 feat. Billie „Forbidden Love“ is taken from the new album „Spacious“ that will be released on August 18th on Mole Listening Pearls.
NYC-singer Billie Brown sung on many songs with producers like Masters At Work, H2O, Jamie Lewis and also on several songs of Minus 8.
Her soulful and warm voice provides „Forbidden Love“ a sensual note.
On “Get Up, Get Out Into The Rain”, the Berlin-based NAOMI are approaching the Alternative House genre – starting with the beat and ending up at the emotion. At the same time, however, the duo is avoiding everything which is too cool or hip. Worked out really well – and the bass, beg your pardon, is sexy as fuck. With “Get Up, Get Out Into The Rain”, Nico Tobias and Bernd Lechler have written a song about childhood and even meditate over naivity and optimism: to derive enjoyment from annoyances and to recognize the potential of failures, making lemonade when the world is throwing lemons at you. At the same time, the song is the harbinger of the upcoming sixth album “Swim”, which is to be released in September and is much more relaxed, more elegant and more reduced than its predecessors, proving again: thanks to their diverse sound, Naomi are one of the acts in electronic music that is definitely not to be missed!

Solemnoire‘s “The Black Sea Workbook” is an intimate experience of distance and longing. Inspired by a magic summer in Varna, it conjures up the vision of a primordial world, an imagined Black Sea as it might have been millions of years ago. Ten tracks pull you into a kaleidoscopic daydream of ancient continents overgrown with tropical green and the deep body of an ocean pregnant with life. A sense of personal revelation fills you as you travel through moments of majesty, melancholy and wonder. It is your world and your discovery. You who gazes toward distant shorelines, walks under a disapproving sun, imagines the dance of marine lifeforms, and trembles at the traces of prehuman activity. You who is permeated by a sense of longing, for the comfort of a remote world unmoved by human concerns.

Their remix of “My Light” is already supported by Lucas & Steve, Sigala, Curbi, bigFM Nitrox, sunshine live, Radio Fritz, Energy Mastermix and many more!
