R.T.A. feat. Katerina – Unconditional Love (mp3 EP)

Though born and bred Greek, Katerina’s musical soul was carved in Manchester’s dark clubs and bars. While studying sociology and psychology, her student room was decorated with turntables, speakers and records, but her real love was in writting her own songs. During experimenting with writing lyrics for more club-friendly tracks, she eventually wrote “Unconditional Love”, her debut with R.T.A. and on the label Plastic City. Katerina now lives in Rhodes (Greece) and spends most of the time in the recording studio. “Unconditional Love” will definitely not be her last release on Plastic City. Hopefully she is sitting in Rhodos in the recording studio in the moment and writing new songs…

Available Format: mp3.

Various – Active Agent – Part 2 (2LP)

“Electronic Injection” had been more than a simple label compilation where just a cross section of artists added a track. Harthouse Mannheim is setting a really high standard since their relaunch last year. The sounds parts are a pretty good match, interlock and have a quite reasoned basis. Harthouse has been one of the most important electronic institutions for the last fourteen years with names around as Sven Väth, Alter Ego, Der Dritte Raum, Spicelab, Hardfloor or Resistance D. – to name a few. Therefore it’s not surprising that as a corollary the “Electronic Injection” now is liberating its “Active Agent”. “Active Agent” is the new groundbreaking composition from Harthouse – highly epidemic and instantly causes addictive behaviour. The wisely assorted collection of artists is a clue for how high the bar has been raised and you can look forward to the adverse effects. Quite varied artists unify within a incomparable fusion which resembles a suspenseful myth. “Active Agent” quickly dispreads through the whole body and lets appear everything in a clearer, more powerful and detailed way than one is accustomed to. The big names of the 90ies go hand in hand with the new talents – a well balanced mixture of well known ingredients and innovative substances whereas the heroes from the hour of birth are in no way inferior to the newcomers and sound newer than ever. This is part two of two Double LPs.

Out now: 2LP (Part 2), also available: CD, mp3, mp3 (Extended Edition), 2LP (Part 1)
