So it’s again our monthly attempt to pull up a lean list of 10 of our favourites that were released last month.

The ten artists, crafting, moulding and polishing their newest singles, EP and LPs. Some already tested on the dancefloors and some just fresh out of the printing house. Thus we’re ... Read more

Premiere: Lo & Matteo Luis – Won’t Cry (Marlon Hoffstadt Remix)

Brand new new label Retrograde presents its RTGD001 in the form of „Won’t Cry“ EP by Matteo Luis & Lo, both part of the imprint’s family.

The original was reworked trice by amongst others, friends of the emerging label as well as long time role models of the label heads Marlon Hofffstadt and Goldberg. The former delivers a drifty and impulsive close to the floor interpretation of Won’t Cry, whilst buddy Johnjons remix gleams through percussive sequence sounds ... Read more

Mix #171 By Matteo Luis

Matteo Luis captures his audience with his classy house sets and his passion for vocal house and slow tempo beats. Not sure whether the digital era is to blame, but he only just turned 21 and has already built up a reputation as Cologne’s “Club-Mozart” because of his inventive productions. Luis is a young producer from Berlin. Over the years – with 2008 as his starting point – he tried many different styles of music for his productions, but finally found his passion in House music. In August 2011 his remix for Bryan Kessler’s “She Only Likes Me” was released as ... Read more

Full Premiere: Tender Games – Want It All (Original Mix)

Tender Games is the brand new project between BBC Radio 1 Future Star Marlon Hoffstadt and HRRSN, head of the Berlin-based Well Done! imprint. Both established producers in their own right, they’ve shifted their sonic-palette away from house-based sounds to create the ‘Tender Games’ LP. Oozing with rich harmonies and warm grooves, the Tender Games sound is much more indebted to the UK club scene than to the darker, heavier timbres their hometown Berlin is associated with.
