Review: We know Alex Bau, he's a familiar face, an artist who has been part of the modern house scene since the turn of the millennium and, importantly, one who has always managed to reinvent himself, and approach dance music through a fresh pair of lenses. This new release for Sven Vath's Cocoon imprint is the perfect example of this man's versatility and creativity behind the mixing desk; neither "Illuse" or "Etah" sound like they belong to particular sub-genres of house or techno, they're just great club tracks that have used different aspects of the past to arrive at something new. The former is a driving bullet of a techno tune, a missile with only the dance floor mind and a single bleep to carry it forwards, while the latter heads down a much darker, more intricate web of pseudo acid that'll blow the socks off just about any sort of dancer.

Review: Italy's Ilario Alicante has been on an intense journey over the last five or so years, but he returns to Sven Vath's Cocoon Recordings, the imprint that gave Alicante his name in the first place. "Thera" is a no nonsense techno bruiser with a militant structure and an artillery of dusty hi-hats; muted and swamped good and proper by none other than Steve Rachmad. "Encounter" is stomping and surely ultra-effective on a Funktion-One thanks to its booming kicks and dubby sonics, while "Argo" is more introspective and sullen but nonetheless abrasive. Welcome back, Ilario!

from $1.87
Played by: Toben, Paul Leath, ALEX MAYER
Review: It's encouraging to see a big label like Cocoon supporting newcomers when it would be far easier and possibly more lucrative to stick with the more bankable big names. YouANDme's "Raw" sounds like what would happen if an acid casualty were to attempt to make tool house. The drums are dense and the rhythm shuffling, but the chord breakdown has a freakish undercurrent and the whole arrangement has a woozy, soft-focused feeling. Meanwhile, Alicante mines a similar path to many of his contemporaries, with snappy percussion and a muddy acidic bass reminiscent of Ostgut, but then the track is pushed into a different dimension with a trancey hook inspired by mid-noughties Get Physical releases.

Swung Out - (6:16) 128 BPM
from $1.87
Review: NYC's Kevin McHugh has certainly remained on the pulse and continued to be a relevant figure in techno music since his affiliation with Richie Hawtin's m_nus imprint in the late noughties. Now running the brilliant Delft and Valence imprints devoted to underground, lo-fi new wave acid sounds, he also seems to find the time to smash out killer peak time anthems: This time for the likes of big guns Cocoon. "Daylights" features what is potentially the most massive bassline for 2016; a superbly dark, main room weapon reminiscent of classics like Dirty's "Dirty" or the DK7 remix Adam Beyer's "Remainings". "Swung Out" is equally ferocious and just as indebted to early 2000's hard techno. Dubby, loopy and hypnotic, this great tool is for fans of Gez Varley or early Mr. G.

Orizzonte - (9:46) 123 BPM
from $1.87

Review: With a title like that, it is no surprise that Impressions has an epic sound and even grander aspirations. The work of Italian DJ Luca Ballerini, it is an ode to techno figure heads like Carl Craig and Cocoon boss Sven Vath (who is no stranger himself to grandiose techno concepts - witness Accident In Paradise). On "Impressions of a Dawn (Alba in 4/4)", Ballerini lives up to his ambitions; over rattling drums and a snaking bass, haunting voices and soaring woodwind are audible. For "Orizzonte", the listener is taken down a darker route that is more in line with Cocoon's usual sound - with detuned trance riffs and tough bass pulses prevailing - but Ballerini still comes close to realising his goals.

Review: Christian Burkhardt is perceived as belonging to the new wave of European house producers, but this release on Sven Vath's label shows that he isn't content to copy well-worn narratives. "Heart & Mind" is the most conventional track, but even here the beats are stomping and the accompanying vocal, 'once you open your heart, you forget everything', provides an unusual mixture of the grainy and the ethereal. On the subject of weirdness, the aptly named "Waffles" fuses heavy, steely drums with stoner vocal samples, but it can't compare to "22nd Century Drama". There, a time-stretched garage bass and fractured drums provide the backdrop for detuned synths and what could be a Chaka Khan sample lurking in the background.

Review: This is Chymera's second EP in 2016, and follows a relatively fallow period in the last few preceding years. That said, Episode shows that the Irish producer has not lost his melodic touch. The title track sees emotive melodies surge up over a rolling rhythm and robust kicks, while on "7 Hours", he reverts to a more earthy approach. Despite this, the arranging is superb, with resonating beats and nagging percussion supporting a surging bass and warm acid lines. Finally, there's "Rust"; with its breath-taking synth drops and powerful bass tones, it brings to a close another majestic, melodic release from this talented, idiosyncratic producer.

Review: Following on from his Confidence album and subsequent remix release, Daniel Stefanik delivers fresh material for Cocoon. Audibly fuelled by acid house, the German producer has nonetheless put his own spin on that style. On "Twilight Zone", the 303s are as niggling as an under-the-skin itch. Combined with clicky beats and rattling percussion, it makes for an unusual take on the 303 sound. The title track is in a similar vein; while the acid element is less audible this time, the spacey filters, hissing hi hats and tick tock percussion combine for a highly distinctive minimal techno track. No wonder Sven Vath's label can't get enough of Stefanik.

The long time affiliate of the Leipzig's famed Distillery club has been on the scene for over a decade, with releases on the likes of Moon Harbour and Mobilee so you can trust the DJ on this one.. For this edition (said to be a retrospective of sorts for the label) it will come in a continuous DJ mix with some brand new and unreleased tracks. Stefanik will also include four of his own edits including Guido Schneider & Andre Galluzzi's "Mario" and Luca Ballerini's "Impressions Of A Dawn" and "Orizzonte".

Review: Exploding on to the scene seven years ago, seemingly from out of nowhere, Frankfurt's Sascha Dive helped usher in a new sound internationally, as minimal was on its way out. On his Deep Vibes imprint he quickly became renowned for his tracky and percussive DJ tools influenced by '90s US house. Fast forward to now he's still around and still riding a wave of success if this release on the Sven Vath's massive Cocoon label is anything to go by. "Werewolf" is a driving peak time tech house number with its buzzing razor sharp melody backed by rolling bass and thunderous rhythm section. Secondly we have "Into The Woods"
with its sombre yet epic strings most notable about it, supporting equally as powerful elements like the previous track. There's a certain Detroit influence on these. Matter of fact, you could imagine them being played by the likes of Derrick May.

Review: DJ D'Jedi, AKA Antoine Husson releases his second EP on Cocoon with three tracks of techno madness that bring the energy of early 90s rave to a more modern sound. "My Inner Colours" EP is an assault on the eardrums, designed to turn the clubs into a frenzied battlefields.

Following on from last year's debut for Cocoon, "The Devil's Star" EP, the Parisian producer keeps the tempo up and the beat pounding on his latest techno workout. Opening with "Crazy Purple," Electric Rescue demonstrates how quickly he can create a storm on the sound system. After an unassuming start, some steadily building and unforgettably crazy noise modulation begins to pierce through the beat and send the track into overdrive. Anything but unassuming by half way through, this is an electro tinged, techno monster that has the potential to make any club explode. "Bleu Electrique" is next up, serving as a bridge between Chicago-esque phuture sounds and the acid trance of twenty years ago. Although slightly more reserved than its predecessor, it still flexes the driving techno muscles of the entire EP. The Frenchmen returns to club madness for the finale, "Acid Rosso" Peppered with sounds of the acid era, the track is built on the foundation of a thunderously slo-mo basskick that fuels its mighty power.

Once more, Electric Rescue has been able to get the combination of modern rhythmic textures and noisy rave sirens of the 90s onto record. Whilst drawing on the sounds of modern techno he has also managed to keep a distinct acid flavour, bringing a welcomed slab of rave culture to today's techno scene.

Review: Extrawelt rose to prominence during the Kompakt trance boom, but to expect their latest album to merely contain storming, melodic club tunes would do the German duo a disservice. Naturally, there are moments on In Aufruhr where melodic techno reigns, like the epic hooks and fragile rhythms of "Schlusslicht" or the meaner, woozy synths of "Division Dunkel". But of greater interest are the contributions where Extrawelt push the sonic envelope further. "Herz Aus Blech", with its mixture of buzz-saw bass and subtle ivory tinkling, is one such example, while "Die Welt Ist Nicht Genug" and "Dumb Age" see them diversify into stepping, dubby rhythms with resonating sub-bass and shanty effects to the fore.

Review: Has melodic German techno found an unlikely new creative muse - Detroit electro? On Raum, the latest release by Extrawelt, aka Arne Schaffhausen and Wayan Raabe, this would appear to be the case. While the title track features a rolling, warbling bass and the tantalising melodies that veer from the dark into the dreamy, there is a different dynamic at play on "Herz Aus Blech". There, shuffling 808s and gurgling acid basslines provide the basis for the duo's crystalline melodies to soar and shine. There's a similar approach on "Zeitfuge", where a stripped back rhythm track supports a bouncy electro bassline. Nano Boogie's abstract take on "Zeitfuge" completes this unpredictable release.

Review: Two titans of Germany's techno scene come together for a release on Sven Vath's label. While both acts excel at making melodic, trance-influenced grooves, there is an element of restraint at play here. It's most audible on "Not On A Map", where stripped back, abstract rhythms eventually make way for eerie, late night in the forest-style effects and then a viscous flow of 303 sounds. "37 Routes" is straighter and more functional, but neither artist can resist some melodrama and midway through, it breaks into an epic synth breakdown. The drum-heavy, percussive groove and forceful, grainy bass of "Imaginary Escort" complete the release.
