Plastic City is a town, not m26086_webade of stones and metal, but made of the thoughts of its listeners. This ethos is written in English on many Plastic City record covers from 1995 until the present. Plastic City therefore is something mystical; it is timeless and keeps up a constant flow. It is a town built by thoughts, where the inhabitants and their positions are indeterminate, as new dimensions are developing constantly and changes are taking place. “Straight Outta Plastic City” is compiled and mixed by house music legend Terry Lee Brown Junior. 

Incl. Tracks & Remixes by David Keno & Jimmy Lesson, Terry Lee Brown Junior, Lukas Greenberg, Dalson, Jeff Swing, Alex Connors & Hardy Heller, Bucher & Kessidis, Pav Parotte, C-Rock & Franksen, Perception Of Sound, Manuel Romero

Part 02

Franksen goes way back in the history of Frankfurt’s electronic scene. Hosting Germany’s eldest radio DJ Show, today’s YOU FM Clubnight, since more than ten years. As a DJ, producer and music journalist (for BEAT magazine) he claims his own style on an endless groove journey. Franksen appeared on Deep- and Techhouse labels from Suara or Dieb.Audio to Salted Music and more. Since 2009 he released a string of fine tracks with collabo partners, 2012 was his time to go solo. Franksen released on Stir 15, Audiothentica, Mainakustik, Amused Records, Kaato Music and many more since then. His Plastic City EP seals his established musical friendship with our label. Two originals spreading from lazy, dusty and percussive vibes together with studio partner Redux, to elegantly polished house in a slight garage fashion. Soulful & danceable, with remixes coming from beloved mastermind Terry Lee Brown Jr. (TLB) as well as established Plastic City artist Tom Bucher. Available Format: MP3

Franksen & Tom Wax – Rhythm Section (Plastic City. Play)

While Tom Wax took his way via Techno, Tech-House and Electro from scratch in the late 80s, Franksen loves his 90s house und US deephouse structures. Their fusion: Driving house and techhouse beats, organic percussions, electronic funk or global vibes, it’s all in there. The strict goes with the playful, the rhythmic with the melodic and the organic with the electronic. Working together they basically extend and merge the loose ends of their common radio work in their home zone, the Rhein-Main-area. For six years Tom presented the weekly show SOUNDS at Frankfurt’s public radio YOU FM. As a radio-host Tom’s playlists boast cool contemporary techy clubsounds between trend und tradition. He established himself a cornerstone in every techno-history, with still legendary projects such as Microbots, Arpeggiators or AWeX. As resident DJ at Frankfurt’s very own “Dorian Gray” he belongs to the heritage of the Frankfurt sound. Franksen is „On Air“ since 8 years, hosting Germany’s longest-running DJ-radioshow. Today’s YOU FM CLUBNIGHT offers all the flavours of house- and techhouse: with groovy tracks, a vibrant presentation and well-chosen guests. The track “Rhythm Section” is taken from the current album “Full House”, which was released in April 2011. On the single you can find two new remixes as well as the original.
