First to go is Reboot, a long-time advocate of stripped down grooves on labels like Cadenza and Get Physical. His eight-minute masterpiece is a warm, underlapping house cut with sub bass and loose synths getting under your skin.
Moblack and Monaberry artist Sobek goes for something superbly slow burning,
layering up the poignant synths and drums into something that is poised and grandiose.
Next up, Ibizan based label boss Claudio Ricci is in fine form as he reworks ‘Galaxy 82’
into an upbeat bit of classy techno with serene Detroit pad work and thoughtful keys
taking you into the future.
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.
Stripped Down Records continues with munimuni & Seelenwald and featuring stellar remixes from label founder Claudio Ricci as well as Sasse, Tiefschwarz and Kollektiv Turmstrasse. The excellent original is ‘Missing Link’, a strikingly emotional track with slow, lurching drums and a menacing bassline. These are five fantastically expressive and emotive tracks that bring a whole new world of feelings to the dance floor.
