With new track ‘Warschauer Strasse’, Claudio Ricci has created an expansive seven minute workout of twisted synths and deep house drums. The first remix comes from long time techno heavyweight Timo Maas and the prolific and inventive Basti Grub. Their singular remix speeds up the original and layers in fluttering toms and percussive sounds as well as broad, groaning synths and the distant sound of a bustling city at rush hour. Sudam label boss and Ibiza based artist Kintar flips the track into something spacious and haunting. Eerie keys and sweeping synths keep you on edge as the rubbery techno groove rolls on into the night. Bulgarian based Metodi Hristov loves to experiment and has a distinctive techno style that gains support from the likes of Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox and Adam Beyer. In his hands the track becomes a peak time tech banger!

First release on belgian label Atrakt Recordings: Chris Tietjen – Smoke Stack EP
Known from his Cocoon and Cocoonclub history, Chris Tietjen is stepping more and more into the production field. His fourtracker for Atrakt is based on solid Detroit flavoured 909 beats. Tietjen gives us deepness (Smoke Stack / A1) at the same as he delivers pure mental techno heaven (Channel / B1). Randall M is on remix duty for “Smoke Stack“ (A2) and supplies us with that beloved Berlin afterhour flavour – this one beams us straight back to those mad summer mornings dancing with mirrorshades and feeling the heat. Tietjen’s „Deep Swift“ (B2) follows the current sound of Frankfurt, full of deepness, dub-effects and minimal house vibes in the likes of Sasha Dive or Markus Fix. A cool fourtracker that will take us through the grey and cold winter – we can’t wait to hear these gems on the first open airs in spring again!

The eight-member band from Cologne, are headed by Florence Joy with her husband Thomas and his brother Jonathan Enns. Their debut album is under the same name and the songs come to the major themes Faith, love and hope. The band was born out of the interdenominational youth service B.A.S.E.: ’’Oneness so that a young generation gets to know Jesus ” is the Vision Statement. The first single, ‘Because it is love’ aims with tremendous suction force to the brain and heart. The hook is immediately catchy, and in the next moment the song turns out to be most emotional love declaration of all: ‘You are the love’. If you listen to the songs, you can feel that it’s not about theoretical, philosophical, or even theological knowledge here. The pop songs reflect the beauty, the simplicity and the wonder of the small and big miracles in life. Songs that awaken the desire to live.
After their critically acclaimed number 1-CHART-album „Preachers of the night“ POWERWOLF are back with their the new masterpiece „Blessed & possessed“. The density of hits and anthems on their sixth epic is nearly unchristianly – firing hit after hit. The Mystic and bombastic title track “Blessed & possessed” enthralls the listener from the beginning and leads to a top-flight direction, by presenting metal hymns with emotiveness and pure magic. POWERWOLF are bursting with imagination, they have cultivated their well proven trademarks and deliver first class Power Metal („Dead until dark“), the finest Speed Metal („Christ & combat“), great Hard Rock trips („Sacramental sister“) and even orchestral madness („Let there be night“).
