1. Mind Against – Polarstern (Original Mix)
Not many artists can rightfully claim a signature synth sound. Mind Against are among the rare examples, just like Stephan Bodzin. “Polarstern” is a very special track that highlights their dreamy lead synth in front of a haunting atmosphere.
2. Kerri Chandler – Pong (Ben Klock’s Bones & Strings Rework)
It’s always interesting to see the greats of our craft remix each other. Honestly: I would not have imagined Ben Klock doing such a melodic take on Kerri Chandler’s work. He somehow managed to create an addictive groove by choosing that wonderful strings sample.
3. Roberto Capuano – Mirror (Original Mix)
Martin Kleinert, founder of New Port Records turned me into this track. I always admire producers who can make a powerful track with very few elements. Especially the glitchy type of percussion sounds create so much drive, lift you up and smash the club into pieces after the drop.
4. Rødhåd – Like Tears in the Rain (Original Mix)
One of my all time favorite techno producers. Rødhåd surprises me with every new release. This track has a great evolving 303 bassline that cuts through the mix and pulls you in. I find it very unique that all the other elements around the main line sweep independently throughout the song but somehow don’t feel detached.
5. Benjamin Damage – Transmission (Original Mix)
50 Weapons was such an amazing imprint. One of the most talented people on the label is Benjamin Damage. “Transmission” is a very unique track in terms of sound design and arrangement. If you listen closely you can hear somebody cough during the quiet bridge. That little detail creates such a cool live-feeling and makes the song stand out.
