Review: For their next release, Berlin institution Watergate welcomes back two of Hamburg's finest: Adana Twins. Last seen on the label's last compilation, the duo returns with a bunch of stunners which the label itself best describe as 'low slung, infectious cuts blurring the lines between house and techno' and truly showcase the signature sounds of these two Harbour City heroes. The original version of "Flower Of Cane" sees the duo follow their darkest route into the abyss yet on this druggy and heaving main room groove that follows in the tradition of classic Reude Hagelstein or even local legends like Stephan Bodzin. "Ortus" is an adrenalised exercise in mood lighting which is perfect to make a transition with its elevating EBM style bassline. The third offering "Relentless" (feat Jeppe Kjellberg of Danish electro-poppers Whomadewho) offers yet more quality, but if you ask us: it's all about Andre Lodemann's vocal mix, which is so incredibly dreamy and evocative as always.

Sequence 01 - (6:23) 124 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Following on from last year's Flower of Cane EP, Hamburg house duo Adana Twins return to Watergate. The title track is subtle but effective and austere-sounding but also uplifting. It chugs along to a solid groove and features eerie synths that build and build thanks to some effective filtering - and is exactly the type of track one would expect to hear at the feted Berlin club. On the flip side, "Sequence 01" is centred on a different approach. While its groove is also linear, it is powered by a pulsation bass and the kind of evocative, crystalline hooks that sound like the modern embodiment of classic German trance.

With previous releases on top labels like Superfriends, Cocoon and local imprint Zukunft - he tops all that by being picked as selector for esteemed Berlin institution Watergate's 24th mix album. Here we get treated to a few exclusives: first we have Jules & Jesaya's +4 BPM Update of Ame's "119 BPM", there's also his collaboration with Domenico Ferrari on the sleazy lo-slung pop of "Parkuhr". Then, we soon discover its almost entirely a Jimi Jules affair (naturlich!) with his remix of Swiss/German duo Egopusher's "Flake" (venturing into truly sublime territory) and the dreamy and bittersweet tones of Ed Ed & Petja Virikko's "Sundroina" (feat Jinadu).

Danish duo Baime contribute the hypnotic journey into the exotic that is "Majka", Tel Aviv's Kadosh returns to the label after featuring on the Adana Twins' 'Watergate 25' compilation last year. His track is the seductive "Better Days" - a dreamy and evocative composition that you could imagine Lee Burridge playing on a sunny rooftop, while Argentinian Kintar provides some moody dancefloor drama on the riveting "Paradisou". Another Argentinian producer appears in the form of Kevin Di Serna with "Lucero Del Alma" which continues on with those heartfelt and glassy-eyed narratives for the dancefloor.

Review: As Watergate's former technician, Joris Biesmans has been an invaluable fixture at the Berlin superclub for the last five years. With his new focus on making music full time, he's been added to the club's agency roster and emerges with an impressive debut EP on the label, after releases on Correspondant, AEON and Adana Twins' TAU. "Electric Love" is a delightful serving of upbeat electro-pop, featuring vocals by Idorski. It then receives a roaring rework by the ever impressive Italian duo Marvin & Guy and then two more originals follow. "Technician On A Mission" goes for a classic Italo viibe which is pure neon-lit ecstasy, while "City Boy" delves into moodier nu-disco territory similar to Lauer or Tuff City Kids.

Review: Romanian Native Bog has had a great run of releases of late on some of electronic music's most compelling labels, including Crosstown Rebels, Bedrock and Diynamic. He has steadily forged his reputation as one to watch. Following his contribution to Adana Twins' Watergate 25 compilation, he returns to the esteemed Berlin label - this time teaming up with exciting new vocal-led French trio LKF Project (Sapiens/Atlant). "Her Song" is a pop-inflected and evocative deep house anthem for the main room - you can expect to hear this a lot in 2019. This is backed up by the tension and suspense of "Discrete Class" that's sure to fuel those heads down moments under the strobelight.

Fast forward to now, his new EP Hijacking comes courtesy of Watergate: the infamous Berlin superclub where he is one of the DJs in residence. Go deep into the exotic with the Arabic charm of "Bepsi", which then gets a wicked makeover by ascendant Brit wAFF - this bass-driven groove rolls tough! He then goes back to the disco - Middle Eastern style - on the absolutely electric "Yallah!!!" which is followed by a great dub version for your convenience.

Kicking off the first instalment we have Matthias Meyer and Jimi Jules stepping up to deliver their twist on two big tunes from heavy-hitters Butch and Henrik Schwarz. First up is Meyer's remix of Butch's "Shahrzad", where he dishes out a truly timeless piece of dancefloor euphoria. With his trademark organic groove and swirling pads, Meyer guides you through a heavenly journey into the distant reaches of sonic elation. On the flip, Jimi Jules brings his A-game with a revision of Henrik Schwarz' classic "Words In Return" and in the process demonstrates an incredibly mature restraint, with precise and calculated efforts which results in an enchanting trip.

Watergate 18 (continuous DJ mix by Butch) - (1:19:51) 124 BPM
Review: By the stuffy standards of German techno, Bulent "Butch" Gurler is something of a maverick - an eccentric whose seemingly never-ending output regularly pulls techno in a variety of different directions. Certainly, he's a great choice to mix the latest instalment of Berlin club Watergate's excellent mix series. Beginning in a deep and contemplative mood, Gurler works through a range of micro-genres in an undulating, entertaining, 22-track trawl through various contemporary inspirations. Along the way, you'll find cuts by The Horrorist (as remixed by Ricardo Villalobos), Redshape (the thrilling broken techno of "Goom"), and Shifted and Sigha. There's also a couple of exclusives from the man himself and regular studio partner Hohberg, including the exotic, Arabic pulse of "Thai Cubensis".

Watergate 22 - (1:17:57) 124 BPM
Review: Watergate 22 is Catz'N'Dogz second official mix CD. It shows that the Polish pair have outgrown their minimal roots and have delivered a wide ranging, house selection. There's the deeper than deep late 90s "Let It Rain" by City People, while Chicago is represented by the veteran K-Alexi - on the wailing diva vocals of "You Get Down" - and later on with Da Posse. While there are echoes of minimal thanks to appearances from the likes of Krikor, the mix jumps quickly and breathlessly through styles that also includes Credit OO's tough jacking sound and the dense tribal house of Mr G's "Absurd Beatz 4".

Review: Like their first official mix CD for Get Physical back in 2012, Catz 'N Dogz latest mix on Watergate - Watergate 22- sees the pair drop classic house music from DJ Garth, Mystic Bill and Todd Terry. But as this second sampler shows, it also sees them deliver their own interpretation of these sounds. "Blakkat", their collaboration with Yotam Avni, is a killer chord-heavy serving of 90s tech house, while on "Afterglow", the Polish duo delivers a tough tribal workout. The mood changes on "To Ma People", their collaboration with Reno Wurzbacher, where deep Detroit chords are mixed with a soulful vocal to create a truly memorable deep house sound.,

Review: At the tail end of 2016, Culoe De Song enhanced his growing credentials with a fine set for the Watergate mix series. This tasty EP offers a first outing for the four previously unreleased productions he slipped into that mix. All are naturally superb, and tend towards the atmospheric. "Deadman's Walk" is a deep and emotion-rich shuffler that boasts some seriously stretched-out organ chords, while "Aftermatch" fixes spacey electronics and stargazing melodies to a jaunty, Osunlade style drum pattern. "Bang Royales" sounds like his fusion of deep house and the steppy rhythms of fellow South African DJ Mujave, while "Juice" is a stretched-out shuffler with distinctive nods to both Innervisions style tech-house, and Motor City futurism.

Bringing with them a Tiefschwarz remix to their stand out melodic and progressive number "Chimes" the EP hinges itself on an impressive display of lively, pulsating trance paired with subtle beats, abstract percussions and touches of acid in "Nova", with "Black Hole" taking the record down a spirale of bleeps, moody 90s-era synths and minimalistic electronica.

The Venezuelan pair's latest record is on Watergate and showcases again their sleek, clubby sound. The title track revolves around a tone-shifitng bass and hissing percussion and these elements combine for a heads-down, late night sound. "Desire of Mine", which features Delhia De France provide some breathy vocals, resonates to blustery synths and has a more epic feeling to it. Changing tact, Watergate has commissioned Ruede Hagelstein to deliver a tripped out, minimal house take that is sure to hypnotise the Berlin club's main room.

The Venezuelan pair's strength lies in their ability to effortlessly blur underground sound design with a big room sensibility and this approach is evident in spades on Immersion. The title track features slamming kicks providing the backdrop for chords that loop and filter their way hypnotically over the course of eight minutes, but without once sounding repetitive. "Inner Circle" is more understated, and sees the duo drop a pulsating, tranced out groove that is sure to dawn DJ sets ablaze with its electronic intensity.

That string section that comes in around the two minute mark is just brilliant.

First up is Zurich's Jimi Jules who presents us with the dark journey track "1.6%" with that buzzy, wonky synth lead and mysterious atmosphere: Life & Death eat your heart out. Berlin legend Lee Jones, the British ex-pat who you may remember for his collaboration with Nick Hoppner as My My is back with "Fraction Disco (Metro edit)" a sexy and bouncy tech house workout that is guaranteed for hands in the air moments. But it's their most well known resident La Fleur who really impresses with "Waves" where the Swede gives us a driving and emotional journey track with a humming sub bass and tight rhythm that you could imagine setting off a frenzy at peak time on that killer sound system.

Watergate 24 - (1:28:00) 122 BPM
Review: Jimi Jules is one of the main DJs at Berlin club Watergate and it's true to say that he leaves his mark on this mix: 13 of the 21 tracks are edits, remixes or original productions from the Swiss selector. That said, he also leaves space for other artists: Porn Sword Tobacco's dreamt "B1" segues nearly into Jules' own "Gare de Lion", while the live funk of "Caldo", one of the tracks from Keope's 2016 album, also makes a seamless transition into Jules & Domenico Ferrari's stripped back vocal track, "Parkuhr". There are multiple such moments on Watergate 24, and its eclectic feel is typified by tracks from Aphex Twin and DJ Koze, electronic music's most eccentric acts.

Review: Ascendant Israeli talent Jos & Eli join Berlin institution Watergate, following up some dynamic releases on Diynamic, Sudbeat and Noir Music. Both artists have been musicians since childhood and their natural talent shines brightly on the 'Mozar' EP. The title track is a moody and mysterious high tech epic that is sure create some tension and suspense on the dancefloor, while the spellbinding hypnotism of "Atomica" (followed by a classy re-work by Yotto) will help you drift away with its rich symphonic arrangements. Finally, London based vocalist Jinadu (one half of the band The Beauty Room) joins them on the elevating anthem "One".

Played by: Resident Advisor
Review: The fourth EP by Swedish DJ La Fleur on Watergate follows the same kind of late-night heads down approach that charcterised her previous releases. "Bloomer" is led by an acid-soaked groove, out-there vocals and a warbling rhythm. On "Longevity", she seamlessly traverses the world of minimal while remaining rooted in Chicago house with a combination of outer-space bleeps and tones unfolding over a stripped back, metallic groove. Meanwhile the Camea remix of "Longevity" is a deep and insistent minimal rhythm powered by rasping percussion and tight stripped back beats Best of all though is the title track where La Fleur fuses pulsing bass with mysterious chords and a loose house groove.

Outbreaker - (6:42) 120 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Since breaking out back in 2010, Sanna La Fleur Engdahl has switched between her own label, Power Plant, and home city imprint Watergate. Here she makes her first appearance on the Berlin imprint for two years. "Devil Sigh", where delay-laden, dub-wise vocal snippets ricochet around aggressive, end-of-days stabs, alien electronics and a driving rhythm track, is our pick of the bunch, though the woozier and more positive - nay, impressively glassy-eyed - title track is also rather good. Rush-inducing, shirt-removing thrills are provided by Tuff City Kids, whose piano-laden, hands-in-the-air rub of "Devil Sigh" sounds like a future anthem.

Review: Hamburg heroes Benjamin Busse, Friso Traas aka Adana Twins delivered the 25th installment in Berlin institution Watergate's esteemed mix series. The second EP released here features exclusive tracks from their riveting mix, included here are: Italian (and fellow Diynamic artist) Lehar getting hypnotically melodic on the sonic sorcery of "Blue Wolf", veteran German producer Acid Pauli going deeper in typically eloquent fashion on g"Geeting From Orgonon" and Sicily's Musumeci - fresh off great releases for Innervision and Bedrock - with the electro tinged progressive house of "Invaders" which is just sublime.

Feel The Bumpin' - (8:45) 123 BPM
Review: LOYOTO are the East Berlin born Eva Be and Cle; the latter many may know as one half of legendary duo Martini Bros. Both started their DJ and production career almost at the same time at the heart of the then developing scene in Berlin. Just after the wall came down, in fact. Here they return for local institution Watergate with the Lonely Young Tourist EP. Starting out with the deep and dubby tech house journey "Sheijk", they then serve up the euphoric and uplifting "3 Balls" which gets on more of a progressive house tip which we particularly enjoyed. Finally they end this EP in style with the nearly nine minute long, deep dub techno epic "Feel The Bumpin'" which takes things down a much darker and sinister route.

Babylon Side (Marco Resmann remix) - (7:05) 123 BPM
Review: Upon You founder Marco Resmann hooks up with Deep Aztec and Black Soda for this deeply soulful release. The title track accurately sums up the shift by minimal producers into deep and vocal house variations, as hypnotic vocals weave their way through the arrangement, underpinned by a throbbing, pulsing bass. There's a similar aesthetic at play on "Abadala", with Deep Aztec's high pitched tones fused with Resmann's tribal beats. Watergate has drafted in Oliver Huntemann to rework the "Babylon Side", turning it into a powerful and somewhat menacing big room number, while Resmann himself also provides a remix - putting a focus on a grainy bass and chopping up the original vocals.

On "LA Strings", Meyer executes a dreamy and ethereal deep house journey that's engineered for dancefloor drifting, guaranteed. Whereas on "Uluwatu" he throws us a sublime and captivating journey track will draw you into the void with its superbly presented drama, just as it did on the mix CD.

Hope (John Digweed & Nick Muir remix) - (7:35) 124 BPM
Review: Originally featured on their celebratory XV compilation back in 2017, Berlin clubbing institution Watergate have reissued one of the the standout tracks here by Hamburg hero Matthias Meyer and Berlin's Sebastian Waack aka Ryan Davis. The track "Hope" in its original form was a lush and hypnotic drifter, geared for some life-affirming moments on the dancefloor. The rework featured here by Bedrock head honchos John Digweed & Nick Muir takes the track into much more adrenalised and tunnelling territory, with its trance arpeggios and tight rhythm arrangement making for great dancefloor dynamics - but the breathtaking orchestral arrangements of the original are left intact. New track "Love Letters From Sicily" could equally have had a home on All Day I Dream - its ethereal daydream qualities make it perfect for a Sunday afternoon rooftop party downtown.

Watergate 20 (continues DJ mix) - (1:20:00) 122 BPM
Review: The next edition in Berlin superclub Watergate's renown mix series (we're up to the 20th volume now!) sees Hamburg house hero Matthias Meyer step up to helm the duties. Known for his great releases on local imprint liebe*detail and Mannheim's Cecille Records, this continuous mix sees Meyer implement the kind of functional tech house and lush deep house sounds by himself and like minded producers of the moment into one great listening experience. Featuring the gorgeous and ethereal opener "Ten Friends" by Kettenkarussel, several of Meyer's own productions are featured such as "Uluwatu", "LA Strings" (an exclusive) and "Ostinato (Patlac Remix)". Honourable mentions also to great tracks featured by YokoO & Retza Satori (another exlcusive), Underworld's legendary "Crocodile" and the brilliant Moby sounding closer: Efdemin's "Parallaxis (Traumprinz Over 2 The End Remix)".
