Franksen & Tom Wax – Jamin’, Breathin’ & Livin’ (mp3 EP) – Plastic City. Play
This dynamic duo works at the forefront of cool German club music and its media since ages. Tom celebrated his career as a solo techno artist as early as the rise of Frankfurt to being a German techno-city known worldwide. As a producer in the 90s he released and worked as A&R for “Harthouse”. He established himself a cornerstone in every sensible techno-history, with still legendary projects such as Arpeggiators or AWeX. As resident DJ at Frankfurt’s very own “Dorian Gray” he belongs to the heritage of the Frankfurt sound. Since five years Tom is hosting the weekly radio show YOU FM SOUNDS at Frankfurt’s public radio YOU FM, broadcasting for the Rhein-Main area’s terrestrial listeners as well as the whole globe via stream. Tom is hosting guests from John Acquaviva and Oliver Huntemann to Sis and Reboot, in other words from Techno to House. As a radio-host Tom’s playlist boasts cool contemporary clubsounds between trend und tradition. In fact, it was by means of tradition that Tom Wax hooked up with Franksen in the studio. Franksen is „On Air“ since 8 years, hosting Germany’s longest-running DJ-Radioshow. Today’s YOU FM CLUBNIGHT is a real radio-gem and Franksen cares passionately about booking, hosting and DJing. All the flavours of house- and techno are represented with groovy tracks, a vibrant presentation and well-chosen guests. From Jamie Jones to Loco Dice or from John Dahlbäck to Johnny D, just to give you a few from last year’s list at Franksen’s studio. Meanwhile, Franksen works as a club DJ and writes for Germany’s dance-magazines „Groove“ and „Raveline“. While Tom took his way via techno und electro, Franksen emphasizes house und deephouse- structures and vibes in their colab. Their personal approach of „need to dance to it“ fuses their ideas. Driving beats, organic percussions, electronic funk or global vibes, it’s all in there. Now that they know even more about their vitae vice versa, they put all their expertise together to make some fine tracks.

The Timewriter – Dedication (mp3 EP) – Plastic City. Play
The “Dedication EP” features three tracks by The Timewriter, which are exclusively produced for the Deep Train 6 compilation: “Dedication”, “Chords In Minor” and “Coming Back”. With the woodenly beats and percussions The Timewriter creates a strong base for the melodic spheres of the track “Dedication”. The track seems to be the perfect soundtrack for a ride into holidays with a lot of promises for the next two months off. Dry and funky the “Chords in Minor” are whipping the deafness out of the body. The clear reduced groove and the economically used elements are searching for happiness in the light dissonance and find it in the touch of undergound roughness the track is whittling. In “Going Back” we have the rounded deepness that is typical for The Timewriter. But it is never too smooth. Here we have wide chords, nice lyrical metallic sounds and some piano like melody snippets that are merging with the tribal percussions perfectly. Beside this three exclusive tracks you can find on this EP the track “Sleeping Rough” and a new remix of “Zero” by Franky Miller. “Sleeping Rough” is a little bit calmer than the former tracks of this EP. Laying the focus on atmosphere by using linear and monotonic elements fabricates a very technical view on the romantic attitude the track emits from its centre. This is the right track to get lost into it. Franky Miller gives us a phat electronic interpretation of “Zero”. The use of the razor sharp electro-bassline together with the dashing percussions combined with the brightly xylophones is truely a highlight. Really something for peak time.
