Timo Maas Announces New Single ‘Tantra'(Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 2, 2013 by dk

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.

Klangkarussell-imageKlangkarussell featuring Will Heard’s ‘Sonnentanz (The Sun Don’t Shine)’ is the deep house anthem that bears all the hallmarks of becoming one of this summer’s biggest dance hits.

Originally an instrumental that first bubbled away on the underground late last year before becoming a No.1 singles chart and radio airplay hit across Europe, ‘Sonnentanz’ is the work of Austrian house duo, Klangkarussell aka Tobias Rieser and Adrian Held. To date, the instrumental has amassed over 25 million views on YouTube.


‘Sonnentanz’ now features a killer vocal from 21 year old British rising star, Will Heard, the hotly tipped singer/musician gaining recognition for his blend of jazz, folk and soul. Having taken time out to travel through Cuba, Argentina and Brazil, Will returned to the UK last year and signed a publishing deal with Trevor Horn’s Perfect Song. He’s recently been in the studio writing and recording new material with the likes of Billy Mann (P!nk John Legend), Justin Parker (Lana Del Rey, Rihanna, Ellie Goulding), Baby Daddy (Scissor Sisters, Kylie Minogue), and Future Cut (Lily Allen, Rizzle Kicks).

The vocal version will be released on 4th August via Island Records.
Remixes come from Jakwob, Ben Pearce and more

Henry Saiz – The Cryptozoologist EP (Bedrock) (Preview)

Henry Saiz
The Cryptozoologist EP
1.The Cryptozoologist
2.Uncharted
(Bedrock) BEDDIGI27
Release: 19.11.12
Cryptozoology, the search for and study of animals whose existence or survival is disputed or unsubstantiated, such as the Loch Ness monster and the yeti, is something that Henry Saiz finds deeply intriguing. His love of exoticism and strange natural/organic sounds (his own label is called Natura Sonoris – which means Nature of Sound) provide the fuel for this latest stunning Bedrock release.

“The Cryptozoologist” has an instantly striking, mysterious Andean / Peruvian melodic influence that harks back to cultures shrouded in the mysteries of time, creating a truly haunting track. “Uncharted” is equally hypnotic and enthralling and yet distinctly different. Henry is using a lot of analogue vintage gear to create his music, which is giving him a very distinct sound, a path that will lead to his hotly awaited debut artist album (due out in April 2013) on which he will delve totally into and explore an analogue world (www.wearehenrysaiz.com).

Henry’s critically acclaimed “Balance 019” album, released in 2011, was the catalyst for his star potential explode around the globe. His superb collaboration with Guy J (“Meridian”) and his solo track (“La Marea”) for the landmark Bedrock 100 release, were of the highest level of quality and his most recent release, “Our Discovery” (Natura Sonoris), became a huge Ibiza hit this summer, with supporters including John Digweed, Sasha, M.A.N.D.Y., Luciano, Visionquest, Danny Howells and many others. Henry Saiz is undoubtedly an extraordinarily talented young producer who is simply too exciting to be ignored!

Nervous Records

New York City dance music institutions Nervous Records and Cielo unite once again with the March 6 release of “Cielo Sunrise” – mixed by Nicolas Matar. This compilation arrives as Cielo celebrates nine great years in NYC’s Meatpacking District. Over the years, the club has defined itself as a global dance music brand with a successful compilation series, dedication to quality music programming and superior Funktion One sound in an intimate club setting. In 2011, Cielo also became home to Nervous Records own branded music events which take place on the first Tuesday of each month.

Nicolas Matar’s musical style is very diverse, encompassing everything from Deep House, Soulful House, Nu-Jazz, Techno, to Disco Classics – and this is reflected in his gorgeous “Sunrise” mix. With tracks and remixes from Guy Gerber. DJ T, Parker Pooley, Layo & Bushwacka!, Martin Dawson & Glimpse, Humate, Vincenzo, YouANDewan, Jimpster and many more, this mix perfectly captures the programming at Cielo on any given night.

When first opened Cielo was a neighborhood pioneer in the Meatpacking District, establishing roots in an area best known for meat warehouses and unsightly characters. Since then the area has developed into a hub of designer hotels, fashion boutiques and high-end restaurants. To this day, the club has never strayed from its vision of being a music-driven dance venue and over the years established itself as one of the top clubs in the world. The venue’s one-room design and sunken dancefloor provides an intimate connection between the DJ and clubber that is unparalleled. “Cielo has been a labor of love from the very beginning for all those involved. Everything we do is for the love of dance music – from the sound, hospitality, lighting, and quality of music, all are designed to provide a superior night of clubbing,” Matar says

The club serves as host for two of the longest running weekly parties in the U.S. The legendary Body & Soul doyen Francois K helms Deep Space Mondays and house music legends Louie Vega & Kevin Hedge host Roots Wednesdays. Over the last year, the club has also seen its share of global superstar DJs including, Laurent Garnier, Luciano, Carl Cox and Danny Tenaglia. Nine years from its inception, Cielo still strives for excellence, never straying from its original vision and constantly delivering as an international clubbing destination for both DJs and clubbers.
