The development of a world-changing drug demanded an unprecedented level of collaboration.


Inigo Kennedy — Voyager Paul Nazca — Memory Original mix. First things first though Hailing from Berlin, DeWalta, has clearly been influenced by the musical heritage of Basic Channel or classics such as G-Man's Spartacus - a force and power that still has a place in the sets of Villalobos, Raresh and many other DJs, and rightly so.

Deep organ harmonies meet Black Dog and Blike sound effects and an almost soulful deepness takes hold as we immerse ourselves in the track. Although in fairness, they were never gone.

The duo are one of the most booked live acts worldwide, commanding a huge fan base. Their performances are the stuff of legend, making them the absolute highlight at every club and festival they play.

The album title "Fear Of An Extra Planet" sounds cinematic, like some art-house science fiction film, without giving too much away. We are immersed in wide open spaces and invited to explore dark and dusky worlds that transport us back to their Border Community years.

Timeless and elegant, "Superposition" perfectly captures the epic, dream like quality that made James Holden's label so influential. Almost hypnotically, Extrawelt invade us with an energy and impetus that always radiates from their music. Next in line is "Silly Idol" and here Arne Schaffhausen and Wayan Raabe opt again for a more minimal tack, focusing even more intensely on the dance floor to reveal a pulsing, twisted heart to the album.

This one is totally off the hook, a sensory overload in an acoustic widescreen format! It opens up like a film score, with minimal passages following dark sequences that morph into dreamy melodies, all grounded by cool, constantly alternating analogue drum patterns.

As we near our destination, "The Friendly Coroner" really does honour its name. The morbid charm of the title is captured by a fluid bassline and melodic arrangements that border on the absurd, until the funky drum beat finally drops.

Over the course of the last title, the strings usher in the final acknowledgments as the credits roll. A1 Extrawelt - Superposition 2.

B1 Extrawelt - Gott Ist Schrott 3. B2 Extrawelt - Oddification 4. C1 Extrawelt - Gentle Venom 5. D1 Extrawelt - Silly Idol 7. D2 Extrawelt - Punch The Dragon 8. F1 Extrawelt - The Friendly Coroner F2 Extrawelt - Arne Schaffhausen and Wayan Raabe have let loose a real bass and drum monster on us. The acid-heavy bassline completes the pressure-packed arrangement until the track suddenly stops dead.

Sometimes it's just so simple and effective to completely hit the brakes before re-energizing and building up to full speed again. The 12" version of "Fear Of An Extra Planet Blackout "is a powerful techno bomb and for us - one of the highlights of the year! The exclusive, non-album cut "Hail the Whale", starts off a little more subdued. However, the cool old-skool cowbell intro with light Chicago house touches soon develops an energy through a driving electro bassline that shakes us from the initial calm.

Sci-fi FX, distorted vocals and dramatic synth lines envelop us in an extremely intense soundtrack atmosphere. From warp speed space travel to misty wastelands on strange planets and breathtaking pursuit scenes, "Hail the Whale" conjures up all manner of images as it hammers from the speakers. To be honest, the notion of "grand cinema" has already been used too often but in this case it just fits!

CK who gives us the rush on the floor this time! This is super deep techno with lots of space, echoes and even dark melody bits. What to play at the next after hour when the sun is reaching high noon? Joel Mull has the answer! Hells Bells meets a Guy Gerber harmonies with a strong hypnotic appeal.

This is a musical journey on the dance floor and the long ending part is an unbelievable mix-outro for all the DJs out there who know how to use this properly. Insane and romantic at the same time, this is JA: Take all of the rocking techno ingredients that you loved so much over the last decade and you get a melt down of Dustin Zahn, Industrial Strength Soundhack and many more milestones to name Sven played the acetate of this so often that we even had to cut a second one.

Techno-trainspotter worldwide went mad for this one and were killing us with their requests and track- ID inquiries. The wait is over guys! The annual Cocoon Ibiza mix is back with another bang this summer with the essential edition mixed by two top talents in Nastia and Einzelkind.

Nastia is one of the hottest DJs in the world right now. The Ukrainian is headlining clubs and festivals around the globe and showcasing not only great technical skills but also a real breadth and depth of techno knowledge. Focussing on DJing rather than production, Nastia has also run her own festival, Strichka, and has been resident at key clubs Arma17, Fuse and Ampere.

As such she is a perfect fit for this job. Kicking off with vital veterans HZ, she wastes no time in getting down to a thumping, jazz-tinged groove. The resulting mix is tight and cohesive, and journeys through acid, jacking drum tracks and driving stuff that never lets up.

He is a no-nonsense DJ who has played the likes of fabric and Space, and as such has helped put his hometown of Frankfurt on the underground dance map. His selections call upon plenty of his own tracks, both solo and produced with the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Robin Scholz and Markus Fix.

The resulting 70 odd minute mix is more stripped back and cerebral than the first. It is always married to a slick underlying groove and is embellished with minimal synths and brain melting pads that work perfectly in the late night and freaky hours in the club. Always keeping you on your toes, it ducks and dives, bobs and weaves in fluid fashion, and is a nice heady yin to the more physical yang of disc one.

Once again then, both these CDs embody what it is to head to the legendary Cocoon party at Amnesia each Monday of an Ibiza summer. It actually had such a strong impact that we immediately had to sign it after Einzelkind played it! We do not want to start again by mentioning how unbelievable it is that we have reached letter Q already Here, in the truest sense of the word, we have a compilation of timeless material before us. Everything sounds fresh and forward thinking!

The musical approach of Baba Stiltz is slightly similar to big Pepe Bradock productions and their Dada aesthetic. Harmonies and melodies of all kinds and the almost dreamy and playful sound arrangements are something like the common element on Q.

We especially dig the almost shamanic vocalsamples here! Harald Björk takes it a few steps further in the harmony corner. What brings us to the tracks of the middle section of Q - because there is a lot of material with even more power and floor potential waiting for us.

Metallically cool, but equally sexy and bass-heavy at the same time, Tejada throws crazy designed sounds on us - what an insane master piece! All things acid is the way to go for Johannes Volk, too. His "Luminance" is a bit more consistent in an almost old-school acid manner and appears to be something like the most clubby track of the album.

Puestel unites in his contribution the different approaches and lines of the other pieces and delivers the secret title track of the compilation. Here you can find dry and kicking beats, dreamy melody parts, but also hypnotic basslines and lots of crazy sounds in the arrangement. Puestel brings the essence of Q to the point and this track alone makes us confident that there will an issue R following next year Cocoon Recordings never has been a narrow minded and singled sided techno label with just one style to refer to.

Electronic music for all different kinds of listening- and body-movement-purposes. Of course Markus Fix, as the man in charge here in terms of compiling and mixing the back-catalogue combined with four brand new tracks , paints more of a tech-house coloured picture and follows his favourite genre thereby. Markus Fix himself has contributed a previously unreleased track to the mix alongside his colleagues Argy, Christian Burkhardt and Jimi Jules.

The four brand new additions follow the basic concept and label philosophy with their great diversity and unequal styles. Fix and company add acid house, 80s flavoured retro sounds and compositions with a deep and hypnotic cinematic vibe. Dots and Pearls volume four does not only represent the musical output of the recent Cocoon Recordings releases.

This compilation proves that it is still possible to publish modern electronic dance music with a vibrant touch but from different corners of the game without the need to sell out or even turn mainstream. By staying true to ourselves and to the sound we fallen in love we stay underground and fresh. Innovation still happens on the dance floors around the globe however we focus on all the special dance floors, the ones with love, passion and energy: The floors where we can see and connect the dots and where can find our pearls.

Rico Puestel is in charge for our Cocoon Recordings th release. The enormous amount of productions shaped Rico's knowledge and taste and his new Cocoon release "Neyst" and "Enokid" seems to be the logical result of his long journey through the techno-universe. Puestels style is very unique and merges elements of dark and hypnotic mainfloor techno as well as orchestral sounds and even industrial elements.

No fast food, no leightweight, this is heavy techno business! We especially fancy the crazy break in the middle with the spaced out room effect part and the melody coming in after the break. As stompy and musclepacked this track is, it still seems to be very musical and deep at the same time - what a trip! This one demands a good and proper sound system, well what other Cocoon Release doesn't? Ilario Alicante is back on the track and he simply beats the shit out us!

The italian techno maestro presents a stronger than strong release that defines the Alicante-sytle in pure perfection. The extreme Detroit flavoured Alicante double pack tracker comes with remixes by Adventice and Mark Broom. This is heavy material - this feeds Rob Hood and Jeff Mills fans and we can see and hear Alicantes admiration for the Underground Resistance back catalogue here!

This 4-track-package proofs that good and solid techno is still fresh and Alicante leaves a major footprint with this release! Play this loud and drive your speakers to the edge, azzurro Alicante is back on Cocoon Recordings! Ripperton - Ordine Gigante 3.

Hilaire - Molekule 4. Love Over Entropy - Sea 5. Kamran Sadeghi - Flow Me 6. Traumer - Ijah 8. Eddie Fowlkes - Oriane C-Rau - Sheeos Unn Levon Vincent - A1 2. Redshape - Tel Aviv 3. Adam Port - Sonnenfinsternis 5. Margot - Er Suonone 7. Danny Daze - Swim 8.

Sven Väth - Robot Kölsch Remix 9. V - Take You There Floorplan - Spin Bart Skils - Fifth Gear Emmanuel - Entroterra Konstantin Sibold - Mutter. Within electronic music Sven Väth represents more than a single style.

Sven embodies the music as a whole, he cherishes every facet of Techno and House. Väth has experienced the music as it emerged in the mid-eighties. From this moment on, he has helped to shape it year after year. Väth produced seminal music, his labels created and create its very own unmistakable brand of music, he ran a club and several booking agencies.

Cocoon is a global identification mark for high quality parties and festivals. Those are major achievements, but they are overshadowed by Väth DJing abilities. Like no one else, Väth manages to capture the current figuration of our beloved electronic dance music in its entirety and melds it into a single, stirring story.

In the summer , Väth invited the global electronic music community to the Mediterranean island of Ibiza for the 17th time. Soft, friendly chords and bird chirps from Swedish producer Harald Björk woo us to the dance floor. The kittenish hookline is open to any kind of playful swing, yet it follows the tender, springy groove with the self-assuredness of a dream walker.

With its delicacy, it captivates our attention becoming more and more decisive and insistent with every iteration. Melting the rhythms of Reggae and House together, Rhauder absorbs this very special mood of composed ease with an unique groove, and develops it further with an attentive, cautious voice of Paul St. Kamran Sadeghi's fascinating synth hooks develop complex, space-grabbing shapes reminding of clouds as they change their shapes within seconds. The groove being able to structure those intricacies without dwindling their richness.

The track is grounded by a beautiful vocal magically jumping between something like an awe-inspiring prayer, a detached meditation or a childlike singalong. We do not understand the words, but we feel the deep self-awareness of this very special human being. Väth pushes the firm bassline of Traumer into the track. But it is not time to take off.

With the gentle piano chords and the luscious house groove of Omar S from Detroit, Väth reaches a magical Zen moment. Eddie Fowlkes translates this sense of longing into imaginative, rich Fusion Jazz developing a strange poetry. Christopher Rau contrasts this appreciation for elegance with a determined bass drum, centering the mix again.

Finally Väth plays a track of his own, the gracefully innocent and downright funny electro pop of "Electrica Salsa" from Remixer Roman Flügel uses futuristic, crystal-clear sounds, simultaneously revealing the modernity of the track and its striking wit. Väth led us carefully into the night, employing a richness of sounds and emotions rarely heard before. He plays the final track by Pantha du Prince.

The electro pop of the '80s resonates in this track as well. As Väth's offhand humor is transformed into detached thoughtfulness, Flügel's agile sounds dissolve into a slow drift.

The first part of "The Sound of the 17th Season" guided us into the night, now we are ready for a release of energy and passion. Levon Vincent does not even need a bass drum for an electrifying, sweeping piece of House Music. With a deeply pulsating bassline and an over-the-top organ solo Redshape manages to be even more thrilling. Adam Port merges the diverging energies into a single, pulsating synth pattern.

Damian Lazarus and Kölsch release this straightforward flow with soulful melodies, a beautiful set of strings offering even deeper und richer emotional shades. Creating another level of urgency Daze gets rid of all subtleties, drawing its energy entirely from the track itself, employing improbable changes in the pace of the groove.

With the Progressive House milestone "Robot", Väth plays another track of his own. Techno, Ambient and Eletronica are fused in a complex structure of overlapping synth tracks. In his very special remix, Kölsch uses a grumbling, doggish synth pattern to anchor all the multifaceted sounds. With a gloomy, huge techno track, Slam exhibit another level of seriousness.

But with the trustworthily whispered words "I wanna take you there" this track has a charming side as well. Robert Hood picks up this tension between techno and soul and pushes it even further moving a short, filtered vocal snippet through the stereo spectrum. With Bart Skills, Väth reaches his finale: The very special Johannes Heil has siren-like winds flashing up abruptly. An instant later they are gone. Väth immerses himself into the pure, rhythm-driven energy with Emmanuel's heavy, resonant synth tracks.

Jangling strings create an eeriness as an enthralling counterpart. Then it's time to say goodbye. The infinitely rich shades of the synthesizers reflect Väth's insatiable love for electronic sounds. Crispy drums and percussions, mixed with his punchy low end and some industrial sounds cooked by Alex Bau, create the melt down moments on the dancefloors in full effect.

This is the high energy what he brought to the point one more time. No extra effects need to launch this rocket. Two heavy weights of peak time Techno music with an own signature sound, ready for some ground shaking club nights. Vince Watson, Frank Lorber Release: Rhythm Factory — N. Who would have thought of this at the beginning of this compilation series? Mirko Loko is in control for the beginning. Wouter de Moor follows with his "Tesla Coil" - a speedy acid tune that has only one message: Coming up next is Redshape, one of the hottest techno-acts of the past two years.

Hypnotic, oppressive and with no frills. Speaking of highlights of the night: Please welcome techno champion Dustin Zahn to our club! The Ovum mastermind has been one of our Cocoon Booking fix points for many years now and he presents an absolute highlight with his tune!

Our last track "All this for a Jump" by Atelier Francesco is in charge for the crowning conclusion: Carl Craig, Sonja Moonear Release: Wowser, what a stunning double feature we have here in our hands today!

To all our ibiza amigos and chicas: Cocoon Recordings presents an unbelievable package just in time for the peak of this years Ibiza season. Please welcome Sonja Moonear and one of the greatest house and techno producers of all time, mister Carl Craig!

And what a package this is… full of love, soul and electronic dance music highlights. Carl Craig is in charge for CD1 of our official Ibiza release. The Detroits 90s techno wunderkind and the mastermind behind some of the biggest house and techno records ever made leaves us almost speechless with his amazing selection and mix. You know that feeling, somewhere between deepest admiration and jealousy looking at such a big talent with all these amazing productions and remixes he gave us… the god of techno has blessed this lovely and gifted artist and we are extremely proud to have him on our ibiza mix-CD this year!

Carl Craig created a perfect mix with power and deepness at the same time - this is high class techno music. By including two more remixes by himself the whole selection becomes a perfectly blended collage of music that appears like an xxl Carl Craig remix.

This mix will be for sure one of the all time highlights in our ibiza-cd-series and it was definitely worth the wait! CC hypnotized us with this mix, this one will stay! Coming up next is lovely Sonja and her mix for CD2 of our package. This DJ-mix touches us with its electronic soul vibe and Sonja Moonear really handed us a true summer mix in. Everybody misses the sun and heat in the summer of so we desperately needed a heart warming music cure to take ibiza with us back home. We especially appreciate that Sonja included some of our all time favorites by John Tejada and Ricardo Villalobos together with Argenis Brito , who receives the honor to close her mix.

This is a mix full of pure sex and kicking deepness and we are really proud to have it on our label! Gregor Tresher, Petar Dundov Release: Cocoon Recordings presents a freaked out deep techno highlight by two masters of their craft: Especially the a-side Spike is a crazy monster and we do not exaggerate by writing that we have never heard something like this by these two masterminds before.

Mental, hypnotic and with a neverending synth firework that modulates with an endless release effect. The two really pushed electronic dance music at least ten steps further.

The two stick to the basic concept of Spike however this time it is the good old arpeggio that keeps on modulating until eternity. Differentiator almost flows with a little trance appeal and there is even a cool and driving acid bassline giving us the final push. Electrica Salsa — Revisited 30 years later — remixes by Roman Flügel and Henrik Schwarz France, Italy, Austria, Germany — quite precisely thirty years ago, one electronic track turned the European music charts upside down: I was the one providing song ideas, grooves and bringing a good mood to the studio.

Detroit Techno and the Berlin scene was still in the making. It included everything from digital Underground up to the Love Parade. Frankfurt and the Rhein-Main area experienced an era of departure and pioneering spirit. They came from all over Germany. The area produced a great number of projects: OFF happened quite naturally as we were trying out some things at the studio. So I went over to the microphone and tried out some word and syllable sounds.

It got everything started; ideas just flowed after that. So we added Trumpets and Timbales that I recorded live. So I got myself a high-end professional percussion set. We flew down there every year in the eighties; the Island really had a strong influence on us with its eclectic sounds at the times.

We wanted to become part of it — and I still am today! They are a gift to my fans that have been accompanying me for such a long time. Irishman Brendan Gregory aka Chymera has become an integral part of the international club scene. This techno and house productions are based on his skilful way to incorporate different styles and genres such as minimal techno and even the trance, which leads to a very own and surpreme handwriting.

Like his mentor and friend Funk D'Void or like his fellow Cocoon Recordings colleague Tim Green, Chymera appears to one of the few artists who can be assigned to a very own and recognizable sound. Especially today, in times where some kids manages it to release records produced with just one laptop and rough basic knowledge a very own style is no longer a given. Chymera is one of these hard to find artists that have worked on their own style and developed an acoustic trademark This is soulful and epic and it triggers just the right senses, it takes us on a journey.

Chymera is a fine master of his craft and this release is another proof of his musical knowledge and taste! The great Chicago-FM bassline is the leading element in "Rust". The analog space synths and the relaxed but cool oldskool drum programming are perfecting Chymeras deep house excursion.

With high quality music by great artists presenting us amazing techno in an unique and tasty style. Midnight Operator, the joint project of the two Jonson brothers, picked Tobars "Angora" for their remix and the result appears very fresh and housey. Together with their strings and melody-parts the Midnight Operator remix is turning into the perfect soundtrack for the upcoming spring nights: We hear flowers, birds, butterflies and feel the warm air Dial mastermind Lawrence contributes the fourth remix to Tobars album: His version of "Red Light" explores the emotional side of techno and house.

We dive into deep spaces, spheric melodies and an atmosphere close to the vibe of the great works of Kraftwerk - this is impressive! Lawrence "Red Light" version presents the musical side of techno to us - a timeless piece of music with a chill-out flavoured beat and synth programming.

This tune delivers the definition of a fat kick drum par excellence - this track creates a strong vibe and comes with a xxl fat punch! The arrangement is based around a cool organ chord that lightens up the dark techno monster a bit however without cutting of the power and energy. The Birmingham based producer Subb-an looks back onto an impressive list of releases and excellent references in his discography featuring productions for labels such as Crosstown Rebels, In he even remixed pop icon Lana Del Ray!

We especially fancy the hypnotic touch the vocal snipplets give to the tune. Clubland beauty Julia Govor left quite some impressions on the floors and behind the decks over the last years. Minimal and deep is the basic line but still with an enormous amount of energy and driving beats.

Moving, dancing and listening, you all find it in here. Deep minimal underground sounds that represent the needed counterpart to the unbearable club mainstream out there. Cocoon Recordings and Daniel Stefanik will save us! Sven Vath returns with two of his greatest classics.

Just in time for the 20th anniversary of the cocoon idea the club-culture pioneer presents two milestones of his first two solo albums "Accident In Paradise" and "The Harlequin, The Robot and The Ballet Dancer" KiNK is in charge for remix 1 and we all know how much the Bulgarian fancys classic styled house and techno music which makes him the perfect person for the job.

And what can we say? KiNK s remix meets all expectations! This is a big hit and it will bring madness to all the open air floors this season.

Runes remix is not riding the retroacid-train but turns out to be an epic club hit with an enormous festival potential, too. The Kölsch beats appear dry as a bone and sound highly energetic - they blend in perfectly with the strings- and and synth-section and create a monster full of drama and emotions.

Although both remixes are way over 9 minutes they do not seem to be one second too long. We do not need to have clairvoyant abilities to predict that Sven Väth will have a deep impact on the upcoming party- and festival-summer with this release. Among Wolves Over The Water. Tim Green is back and presents his 3rd release for Cocoon Recordings. With the two predecessors in mind these three records make a really cool trilogy as all of them are ultra deep, electronic, emotional and again perfectly programmed!

This is music, this is art and this story telling with sounds. Tim Green prooves again that he is the uncrowned master of electronic music if it comes to deep and emotional productions. Something to feed your brain, your body and your soul. Something to get lost to and something to stand out for sure! Welcome and welcome back everybody to the second Cocoon Recordings roll out.

We wonder what this year will bring if the kick-off is already on such a high level? Dark but at the same time pushing and hedonistic. Fairmont starts of with a subtle percussion-beat-acid-combination and turns his remix into a proper and mad electronic masterpiece the longer it runs. Deeper than deep and kick-ass house with a pushing detroit and KMS vibe. This is ingenious clubfood for all the innercity hipsters and musiclovers and it simply makes us wanna dance!

Ambivalence seems to the be the musical direction here. Although the massive techno bassline is the star of this track we are sure it will find its way into the sets of many house DJs, too. We are hypnotized by the shuffled rim shots and hi-hats and Ambivalent drives this one straight through the dub universe. People have their personal rituals. Our beloved master of ceremony of technomusic, Sven Väth, has a ritual as well: Which situations, which encounters inspired me?

What did we laugh about? Väth assembles those magical tracks for the sixteenth time this year merging them into two and a half hour set. Through a cloudy, blurry soundscape, a captivating melody begins to talk to us. Matthew Dekay plays a single cello chord to wait for a short moment. Those seconds of silence turns the track into a poetical starting signal. Geeemans very special way to modulate his voice is reminiscent of the "Ba Ba Bah, Aha ha ha" from Väth's own, legendary "Electrica Salsa".

The bread and the salt of the Russians is only a welcome gift. The rousing tracks make you looking forward to Now that's a massive piece of vinyl! The news about an upcoming remix package for tech-house-maestro Phil Kieran should be enough to raise techno lovers attention. Cocoon head Sven Väth had the pleasure to test the remix a couple of times and smashed the floors to pieces everytime he dropped that gem - one of 's biggest techno highlights so far!

The flipside features a Tom Demac remix for "Missp" which breathes cool 80s air with its bassline and almost industrial beat programming. We hear early Detroit club hymns here or the sound of Berlin in the 90s as Demac merges rough beats and stop and go effects with the new-wave-feeling of bands like the Liaison Dangereuse or Propaganda.

The result is funky and musical but at the same time electronic and entertaining with enough power get us on the dancefloor. The vinyl-edition as well as the 4-track-digital edition of this release appears timeless and incorporates contemporary elements as well as cool 80s and 90s vibes. This is a package that will make the hearts of those in the know race faster. Twilight Zone I Wonder. Daniel Stefanik is back on the track and it seems even stronger than ever before!

G, Adam Port, Legowelt and Matthias Kaden Stefanik presents a true tech-house-monster as a dignified return to the label.

It is less dub and rooms here but more acid power that makes us move. Wild beats and an overall atmosphere that is dry as a bone let this one communicate pure musical madness.

This one rocks floors like thunderstorms. Stefanik is back in his very own style based on his musical heroes and forms a big techn-house piece out of all the ingredients and influences. This one was made to be played in clubs, soon, at the next gig and loud We say this with endless positive feelings: His single for Cocoon Recordings and his style of producing music in general simply seems fresh to us and makes us smile - this is pure electronic art turned into music!

Ballerini wants to pay respect to his role models Sven Väth, Carl Craig and the masters of modern electronic techno art: He also follows the music of artists like Levon Vincent or Omar S and is brave enough to say all this out loud. These influences and styles are noticable in his new release for Cocoon Recordings: However, Ballerini is not copying at all - he merges all these influences and creates his very own style, his own music.

He composes and creates emotions just like the music he loves. He is not just focusing and one idea or on a simple bassline-beat-combination. This is great cinemascope like techno music for all the epic and emotional moments on the dancefloor - grazie mille Luca!

Werewolf Into the woods. The summer heat is still on our minds and we all do miss the sunny days, the beaches and the endless open air parties Dives new release for cocoon beams us back to the high days of the summer of A nicely flavoured chicago-club-house- feeling and exactly how we like it! Dive is pushing it a bit harder now - he uses crazy chord sounds and turns the track into an minute- tech-house-journey.

A massive tech-house-striker by the diver and we are proud to say it is one of his strongest works so far! It is almost hard to believe and we are looking for that wormwhole that brought us here as we are already looking at the arrival of compilation number "O". And we rather do not start thinking about the endless wordplays we could do with the "Story Of O", however we have to admit that this special "O-Edition" comes with an extra portion of deepness, soul and yes, even sex!

Let's proove this right from the start with Roland M. Dill and "The Messenger". Dill presents an epic and cineastic masterpiece full of emotions and a perfect introduction for our O selection. This is the spirit that we mean when we think about hot party nights in Ibiza, that magic touch that we feel when we start the nights and looking for the first beats. The cool bassline and the groovin tool-like beat programming represents the new school of deep minimal house producers who offer much more these days then a simple ableton loop and a filter.

Deepness and a certain feeling for house and techno is the trade mark and the two following artists follow that in perfection. Defintely two of the best tunes out of this genre in so far.

This is the sound on our way to and into the club, when we are about to enter the first Cocoon night of the year. We step into the arena, we feel the heat and the party begins Traumer and Tom Demac. The two speed up the O-engine and open the techno chambers of our selection.

Minimal heaven, crazy and electronic, this is the peaktime sound of our night! The night is getting chaotic and so are we, ready to be surprised by the DJs and waiting for some cool and brave moves. Next in line is Mister Steve Parker with a minimal techno monster for all you Rob Hood fans out there. The perfect sound for a techno-floor full of smoke and shamen like dancers. The night is turning into madness and we are about to forget where we are. Lee Van Dowski and his "www" follows the techno path of the previous two tracks with his mental synth and fat bass programming.

This is DJ food for the techno floors out there and we just want to dance to this! Galaxy Note 9 event: Our top choices for tech gifts. CES articles.
