5 years after the start of the label 040 Recordings, Ralf Picka founded another project in 2012, which has now also turned into a well-established label for high quality electronic music. While the big brother provides rather static Tech-House, Minimal and Techno, Audio Safari demonstrates that driving Tech-House and groovy Deephouse are as popular as ever.
Even with Audio Safari it is proven that the label boss from Hamburg has the right feeling for a good selection of music and its artists. Not only big names of the scene such as Pierre Deutschmann or Sofa Tunes release their current tracks here, but also newcomers like Kevin Over or Lars Moston. As long as the quality is just right and the tracks are dancefloor fillers, Audio Safari will be a partner to all artists.
On the brand new Audio Safari Ibiza 2017 compilation this is proven by tracks & remixes from Nico Pusch, Heinrich & Heine, Genji Yoshida, Sam Junk, Kindred Spirits, Ming and many more… incl. 2 DJ Mixes by Kindred Spirits

Henry Sure – Studio Session EP (Frieda Musik)

On Frieda 008 you’ll also find Henry Sure’s Solo Debut, who’s showing his signature on three originals with distinct bass lines accentuated with persuasive beats. He also likes using vocals, beautifully woven into a percussive tapestry. Two remixes accompany the accomplished originals.

Part of Serialism 10th year celebrations comes from two of Romania’s “ones to watch”, Cristi Cons [a:rpia:r] / AMPHIA) & Sublee (Body Parts / Delooped). They turn and step in to the arena for Serialism Records 40th release. The “You and Me” EP displays the duos versatility and production flair with 4 forward thinking tracks that glide in between House and Techno effortlessly with that Minimal swing that is Romania’s and Serialism’s signature.
With the title track of this EP, Mirco Niemeier knows how to fuse a gloomy kicking bassdrum with percussions and a discreet minimalist melody, so that he creates a track defining his life and culture excellently. Together with an oldschool like remix of the DJ and producer duo Raumakustik (known for their remix of globetrotter Claptone’s “In The Beginning” and releases on Jamie Jones’ label Hottrax as well as on Toolroom together with Terry Lynn), both titles represent a harmonious ensemble. As technoid as “My Culture” is, Mirco proves his complexity and facet richness with the second track “My House”, which comes around even more playful, but with the same tone color. And here, he also got some strong remix support: DJ Lion, wo released a successful remix of Metodi Hristov’s “Flip Trip” on Set About” at the beginning of this year, is responsible for a deep and simultaneously driving version of the original and completes the EP.

After releasing a string of Various Artist 12″s La Peña is a regular in any favourite DJ’s record bag. Now it’s time for the next step. “After all these Various Artist EP’s i wanted to focus on one artist at a time that would allow them to really show a spectrum as broad as possible. I am really happy to kickstart this with Fabe. I got introduced to him by a friend a few years ago and it ́s crazy how this guys turns up from track to track. I think this is his strongest release so far as he really shows what he is capable of in terms of style. Super happy to have him onboard as he is one of loveliest guys around as well. Salut Fabe !!! Life is Audio !!” – Einzelkind.

Ewan Jansen – Return to Hyperbola (Inner Shift Music)
The first Inner Shift encounter with Ewan Jansen was several years ago on a pair of test pressings, from Mike Grant of Moods and Grooves. The label hadn’t even begun yet, but Ewan created a huge impression and wasn’t to be forgotten by them later. Ffwd to 2016/17, Enter: “Return to Hyperbola”. The first track in, you get a good tech house / deep house vibe called ‘Docking Lane’, fully equipped with lovely atmospheres, a driving kick and intelligent chords. Next is Bulkhead, mainly defined by a full-sounding, broken beat rhythm and expressive keyboards. B1 is ‘Deceleration’, another 4-4 deep house number, but with a subtle quirkiness and over all moody feel. On the B2 is ‘Perspex’, featuring a funky bass, nice pads and elevating keyboard part. Don’t miss out, Ewan never fails to impress.
Massimo Santucci – Since 1971 (Atari Lovers)
Some were been born to be a juggler or maybe a bank robber, Massimo was been born to be a “bloody” musician. In the early years (8 to 22) as a drummer in several bands from Punk to Jazz and from the 90’s to date as an electronic music producer. With a dozen own projects, client remixes and order productions he provides about 250 records and may 80 to 100 own releases. Massimo’s productions has been played in heavy rotation in radios and clubs and has been support from many pioneers of the electronic music movement like Roger Sanchez, Bob Sinclar, Sander van Doorn, Paul van Dyk, Ferry Corsten, Dave Seaman, Moguai, Paul Oakenfold, Erick Morillo, Mark Knight, Hernan Cattaneo, Tube & Berger just to name a few. On this Album he finally collected some of his favorite tunes of the last few years along with some very fresh and brand new productions. Hopefully you’ll feel the warm, emotional and full range spectrum of his music and will make this album to one of your favorites.
