As a special bonus DEKON‘s VIP edit of his track “Feel Me” will complete the package! Watch out for these upcoming talents!
With the title track of this EP, Mirco Niemeier knows how to fuse a gloomy kicking bassdrum with percussions and a discreet minimalist melody, so that he creates a track defining his life and culture excellently. Together with an oldschool like remix of the DJ and producer duo Raumakustik (known for their remix of globetrotter Claptone’s “In The Beginning” and releases on Jamie Jones’ label Hottrax as well as on Toolroom together with Terry Lynn), both titles represent a harmonious ensemble. As technoid as “My Culture” is, Mirco proves his complexity and facet richness with the second track “My House”, which comes around even more playful, but with the same tone color. And here, he also got some strong remix support: DJ Lion, wo released a successful remix of Metodi Hristov’s “Flip Trip” on Set About” at the beginning of this year, is responsible for a deep and simultaneously driving version of the original and completes the EP.
What do the Brazilian Anderson Noise, his countryman Renato Cohen and the young German breakthrough artist Mirco Niemeier have in common? An EP with crispy Techno! Anderson Noise releases “Anderson Noise, his countryman Renato Cohen and the young German breakthrough artist Mirco Niemeier” – an absolute burner with powerful remix support of his two mates. The title track of this EP is a slowly but steadily developing Techno bomb, which leads into pure ecstasy with a true percussion thunderstorm. Anderson Noise’ good buddy Renato Cohen adds an oldschool charm and improves his remix with his famous individual note. As a second track, “Spark Marks” is another Techno hit, which tends to become a real peaktimer just like its predecessor with hihats, cymbals and lots of effects. In addition, the very techy remix of Mirco Niemeier perfectly completes the package.
Miguel Rendeiro is one of the best artists, the electronic music scene from Portugal has to offer. Meanwhile also well-known across the borders of the country Miguel plays in London today, in Berlin tomorrow, an afterhour in Barcelona and at the most important festivals in South America. With a very keen sense for details and a pronounced dynamism, not only his DJ sets make up true experiences, but also his productions are a real feast for the ears.“See You Later” makes you nod your head right from the start. Unstoppable a fusion of strong beats and phat basslines makes its way that brings the listener into a trance after a divine break. The Italian Kisk remixed the original and plays with loungy synths combined with driving rhythms, that deliver a wonderful summer hit 2016. And another remix comes from Tigerskin, who incorporates the certain Berlin charm firstly, experiments on the other side with groovy Tech-House sounds and presents “See You Later” in a whole new light.
