Timo Maas - Tantra‘Tantra’ is the new single from German polymath, Timo Maas. Taken from his latest artist album, ‘Lifer’, the track is the latest release during a vintage year for the acclaimed German DJ and producer.

As expected with any Rockets & Ponies release, the label has assembled a crack squad of remixers includingTom Demac (who’s about to drop a forthcoming collaboration with Will Samson on Aus), James Teej (the My Favourite Robot boss returns the favour for Timo’s reworking of ‘Liking Your Disorder’), Atelier Francesco
 (a new project and accompanying pseudonym from an already eclectic Italian producer) and Wolfgang Haffner (the ECHO music award-winning German drummer famous for his work with Nightmares On Wax and beyond).

Timo’s first new artist album for several years, Lifer, included guest spots from Mikill Pane, Placebo’s Brian Molko, U.N.K.L.E’s James Lavelle, Katie Cruel and more. The album arrived on the cusp of a summer season that saw him celebrate 10 years as a resident at DC10 in Ibiza, alongside shows at Used & Abused with Loco Dice, and the ANTS opening and closing events at Ushuaia.

Farther afield, Timo played standout parties for My Favorite Robot at Sonar (on the beach and a hotel rooftop), plus US gigs at New York’s Cielo club and at Wavefront – all in addition to his hectic globe-traversing schedule. Details on his forthcoming US and South American tour dates will be released soon.

Outside of ‘Lifer’, this year Timo produced, ‘Pop A Bubble’, his own original contribution to Cocoon’s 100th release compilation, and remixes for James Teej on Sasha’s Last Night On Earth label and Johnny Mikes on Lower East Records; reworkings that added to a remix pedigree that includes Madonna, Depeche Mode, Muse, Fatboy Slim and beyond.

Timo’s remix for Hackman is due in late January 2014 on LA’s HaloCyan Records. The next remix EP from ‘Lifer’comes complete with remixes from The Martinez Brothers, Maetrik (Maceo Plex), Addison Groove, Fur Coat, Livio & Roby, and Luca Lozano, and is due in December.

Ever at ease straddling the somewhat disparate worlds of underground electronic music culture and credible muso pop, Timo and his production partner, Santos, created Rockets & Ponies for both their own productions, and outings from the likes of Maetrik, Tobi Neumann, Riva Starr, Giorgio Roma and more, and they continue to welcome new talent to the imprint. The next single is from Wolfgang Haffner, backed by remixes from Ricardo Villalobos & Max Loderbauer, Nightmares on Wax, Timo Maas & Acid Mondays.


Pocz & Pacheko – ‘Muévelo’ / ‘Changa Letal’ EP out 26th Nov on Enchufada(Free Download & Video)

Long gone are the days when the periphery sat down, eagerly waiting for the Western tastemakers to let them in on what’s the cool new rhythm to dance to. Bands like Buraka Som Sistema have proven with great success how the infectious rhythms from the ghettos of Luanda have taken over the global stage, setting the tone for a new breed of producers to incorporate kuduro and world rhythms in their ever-widening spectrum of infuences, thus paving the way for the emergence of the Global Bass phenomenon. But of course you already know all about that, so we’d like to tell you about something new.
All the way from Caracas comes a new high-octane bass-heavy genre called Tuki, born and bred in the slums of the Venezuelan capital. Just like the people who created it, it is energetic, larger than life and 100% focused on the dance foor. After growing for a decade inside the impoverished neighborhoods of Caracas, producers like Pocz & Pacheko are fnally bringingTuki to European dance foors and ‘Changa Letal‘ proves it’s here to stay.
On their quest to spread the Tuki virus worldwide, Pocz & Pacheko teamed up with one of the pioneers of the genre, DJ Yirvin, on the single Muévelo. This fery new track will serve as the lead single of their brand-new Enchufada record ‘Changa Letal‘, which will be released on November 5th along with a brand new video. Muévelo will also be available for free download.
Tracks like Aguas CalientesExcalibur or the Cardopusher collaboration Los Rompediscotecas also serve as a feverish introduction to the hard-hitting rhythms of Tuki, by showcasing the 90s techno infuence that permeates the style, as well as the modern infuences of the Dutch bubbling and fdget scenes. All these styles are sped up and spiced with a wild South-American favor, making them ideal for any thrill-seeking globalized dance foor.
On the collaboration front, the pair also teamed up with the kuduro ambassadors Buraka Som Sistema, who were probably the frst outsiders to recognize the importance of the Venezuelan phenomenon, and couldn’t help but wanting to get in on the action in the hypnotizing Perrenke. Last but not least, the Venezuelan dynamic duo enlisted the remixing skills of Barcelona residents Disco Duro, whose appetite for dance foor destruction is bound to become common knowledge very soon.
Like Buraka Som Sistema and kuduro, or Bonde do Rolê and baile funk, we’re witnessing a sonic revolution that’s bound to rock the foundations of the Global Bass scene. Artists like Addison GrooveBrenmar and Toy Selectah were quick to show their support, so come meet us and Pocz & Pacheko on the front lines.
