Caduceus Empirical look to Swiss DJ and producer Garance for an excellent new EP that features two top originals as well as remixes by Ray Kajioka and Beroshima. Garance hails from Geneva and over the course of the last 10 years has built a sterling reputation playing in great locations such as D-Edge (São Paulo), Ritter Butzke & Sisyphos (Berlin) or Montreux Jazz Festival. Since 2013, inspired by richly layered deep house and techno, Garance has been putting out fine remixes and originals. Excellent opener ‘Alice’ is a patient, spiritually infused bit of main room techno. Ray Kajioka (well known for his output on Kanzleramt Music) turns out a remix that is a more stripped back and supple bit of peak time techno that oozes warmth and soul as it rolls deeper and deeper. The other great original is ‘Suzy’ which is slower, more patent and deeper. This one gets re-rubbed by Beroshima, who has released on the likes of Cocoon and Soma and is often played by Berghain DJs Marcel Dettmann & Ben Klock.

There’s no need to say thousands of words about Beroshima: Ulrich Schnauss earned worldwide respect for his electronica works while Frank Muller joined different projects as a producer and put his focus on his live performance and DJ works. This year we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Beroshima project! In the 90s he was one of the protagonists of our scene and even today his drive is enormous. Thus the 5th album “Real To Reel” is now ready to rumble. The same-named title track is the perfect opening track with many strings and a lot of hard beats – just as we know it from Beroshima. While “A New Citizen” comes along quite deep, yet tidy pressure builds to the high speed, “Detroit Tragedy” is a tribute to the sound of America. “Hexaline” is almost a Trance track and “Unter Den Linden” has something very unique to itself as well. Maybe Beroshima’s favorite place in Berlin? Typical Beroshima sound is also available in “I Was Waiting For You” in form of plentiful beats and lots of effects, but also “Leytonstep” plays with plenty of hypnotic sounds. In all 9:26 minutes “Books For Mathew” is a real treat of electronics and “Highway One” closes the album very nicely. Beroshima remains a top producer, who always discovers new ideas even after all these years, tries them out and excites everyone.
