Cocoon Recordings very own "best of" series presents the next issue which is again simply called by the number of the release-order. So it's number â€žnineâ€œ this time ("Neun"). Yep, you heard right, number nine it is and another proof how fast time is passing while we listen to house and techno ;)
Sven VÃ¤th has choosen Chris Tietjen again to compile and mix the pearls of the last Cocoon Recordings releases. Tietjen started as a young gung in VÃ¤ths Cocoon Booking agency and developed into a proper club-dj over the last years. He even released his first solo-12" on Cocoon Recordings in 2012 which marked his final arrival in the techno-business.
Tietjens progression as a DJ is clearly noticeable here as he laid down a very elegant and smooth overall mix. He delivered one of the best of his mix-compilations so far. He starts the journey with two Matt John and one Minilogue track which creates a very moody and warm introduction. The transition into the following part can be seen as a kind of "warm up" one would like to hear in a good technoclub. Next in the mix are Adam Port, Popof (Animal & Me) and Nick Curly who step by step feed the
mix with more energy. From minute 22 onwards the mix starts to kick in and the bass-cabinets of your
speakers should defintely move stronger now.
