25 years Der Dritte Raum. 25 years of Techno history. After assembling numerous reconstructed classics and hits on D3R-25 EINS the 25th anniversary of Der Dritte Raum continuous with a bunch of 2 Remix EP’s on Harthouse. The 1st part contains remixes of Hale Bopp, Trommelmaschine and Doppel by such great names as Maceo Plex, Martin Landsky and Guido Schneider.
Everything was better in the old days” has always been questionable. Music-wise we have seen major developments across the genres from the eighties until today. One track that defnitely ruled the clubs in the early years was Transform’s “Transformation“. Justifably considered an absolute cult hit, it seemed reasonable to see if a contemporary remix of such a classic could turn today’s dancefoors upside down just as well as original did in the past. And hear for yourselves, it can! The original with its raw, puristic and light-footed vibe, spiced up with a hypnotic acid line and topped off with its famous vocal snippet that burned itself into the minds of millions of ravers in the glorious 90s, can certainly be labeled “timeless”. Andreas Krüger aka “Der Dritte Raum” takes “Transformation” into the 21st century in the tried and tested way that we’ve always known and respected this gentleman for: hypnotic, driving and incredibly sophisticated. This remix honors the original and promises to become a hit itself!

25 years Der Dritte Raum. 25 years of Techno history. On this album, pioneering producer Andreas Krüger has assembled numerous classics and hits which have been – with one exception (“Plasmatica”, 1992) – entirely RECONSTRUCTED. “25 EINS” is the first in a series of releases in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Der Dritte Raum, which will be continued with “ZWEI” and is released on the legendary Harthouse imprint, originally founded by Techno icon Sven Väth back in 1992. Although Der Dritte Raum has stylistically changed over the past 25 years, both the timeless tracks on “25 EINS” as well as current productions from the likes of “Polarized Echoes” are always clearly recognizable as Krüger tracks. For many years now, his perfect blend of Techno, Trance, Electro and House is delighting generations of ravers, and with “25 EINS” the journey into Der Dritte Raum‘s universe of sound begins, displaying all the characteristic and unique sounds and effects of Krüger’s music.
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
