Influences That Made: Celvin X

Influences That Made: Celvin X
After starting his music career in 1995, Celvin X burst on to the scene with incredible sounds and innovative music at the height of Electronic music’s initial growth. After a long period out of the spotlight, during which he was sorely missed, he is back. Ready to shock the industry once again, he is looking forward to new music, new shows and even more love from his fan base. We caught up with the producer to learn more about his inspirations in music and what the ingredients are to making such great melodies.

1. Laurent Garnier – Wake Up

With this track, I always associate it with my first encounter with Technoclubsounds. I remember us dancing to it in a little club in Lindau.

2. Depeche Mode – No Specific Title

Do I really have to say anything else about this? No! Cult!

3. Emanuel Top – Turkish Bazar

I was a huge fan of the label “Le Petit Prince” and of course of Emanuel Top in the 90s. Great artist, great DJ; just great.

4. Chris Liebing – C – Reconnected 04 EP

The alchemist of the Technobeats himself. I had the pleasure of meeting Chris many years ago. Back then, we were all sitting together at UCMG in Jonas’ office eating pizza. These are the little stories of life!

5. Slam – Pantera

Am I a fan because I buy many titles from Slam? Okay, I’m a fan I admit it! I hope the guys do a remix of one of my songs sometime.

6. New Order – Blue Monday

Blue Monday – it was certainly not a Monday, but the title remains unforgettable. A small club from Lake Constance, 30-40 guests and the DJ plays this title, all storming the dance floor – amazing.

7. B B E – Seven Days and One Week (Original Club Mix)

The drop/break in this title is probably one of the most memorable of the 90s. I still get goose bumps when I hear the title out loud.

8. Johannes Heil – A1

When I think of Frankfurt, I automatically think of Johannes Heil and Heiko Laux. For me he is, and remains, one of the best producers from Germany.

9. A.MORGAN – Transform

A title from my current set. I love to play it and enjoy the reaction of the guests. Cool beat that gets under your skin!

Get Ready For An Intense Cinematic Music Video Experience — "Chaotic"
“Chaotic”
by electronic producer Cédric Elisabeth is accompanied by a truly intense cinematic music video. The Ambient Techno cut is part of the artist’s 6-track album, ‘Facing Reality’ via Detroit Underground. My favorite part of the visuals directed by Nicolas Simon is that different interpretations may arise after watching the whole story. However, there’s no doubt this clip leans into dark aesthetics and a mysterious plot. In my view, it involves everyday people lurching into internal conflict or mayhem but seeking music as an escape. Sonically, the ultimate goal of  Cédric is to create an illusion, and that’s exactly what you are going to experience with his new project. With just simple minimal beats and atmospheric textures, you’ll get hooked onto it right from the start until the end.

This Acid-Laced EP Causes Feelings Of 'Euphoria'... Bates Belk Is Back!

Electronic music producer, Bates Belk returns from 5-year hiatus with a hot EP titled ‘Euphoria’. In order to innovate, he brings something unconventional to the table. A material inspired by Berlin’s atmosphere of freedom and open-minded society. As a matter of fact, it was produced in Germany’s capital city. Surprisingly, voice and breath recordings were done during sexual encounters by performance artists with different sexual orientations. Taking this into account, Belk embraces a concept, which celebrates gender fluidity and diversity. Feelings of euphoria are triggered due to acid-laced rhythms and raw techno energy. Above all, his music becomes the best antidote against oppression.

If you wish to experience trippy visuals, Belk’s new single “Euphoria” comes with psychedelic animations to achieve that purpose. On a side note, this is the first taste of his upcoming album ‘The Dark Spektrum’ to be released in 2020. One of the most intriguing details is that it will feature the collaboration of 50 Berlin-based artists. It has also been mixed by none other than Gareth Jones, who is known for projects with Depeche Mode, Erasure, Interpol, etc. Sincerely, I can’t wait for this album release to arrive. Stay posted, more news soon!

Rich Sibley Unveils A Futuristic EP That Will Blow Your Mind — 'Machine Learning'
Rich Sibley
graces the Techno world with a 3-track EP, ‘Machine Learning’. Clearly, he showcases his futuristic vision on the genre through a unique combination of analog drum machines + massive synths. If I’m not wrong, I believe the concept behind this project has something to do with artificial intelligence or robots. Among other things, the killer melodies are enhanced with sampled vocal snippets. In fact, he brings to life an old CD-ROM from the mid-90s, taking advantage of its most interesting sonic elements. With imagination and creativity, Rich keeps the energy levels up on each tune. As a result, ‘Machine Learning’ will blow your mind as you navigate through an endless flow of beats. Put your headphones on for a better listening experience.

When You Feel Eager For Exotic Rhythms Make Sure To Listen To Luca Draccar

Luca Draccar
Luca Draccar‘s 3-track EP, ‘Noordinary’ is quite impressive due to its exotic rhythms. Blending the sounds of Techno, driving synths, hypnotic beats and dark melodies, this material is as delightful as one can imagine. Above all, the concept behind all these tracks is what really grabs my attention. Great civilizations and the evolution of humankind is part of his inspiration. Moreover, heavy-hitting kick drums warm up the atmosphere that welcomes you to unconventional music. That being said, Luca is on the experimental front of the underground scene. Indeed, his avant-garde style has been praised by Gus Gus, Maceo Plex, Richie Hawtin, Robert Owens, John Digweed, Carl Craig, among others. Obviously, this is a good sign for his next gems in the years ahead. Take a listen right here via Spotify, and get your own conclusions.
