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!
