It is a new year and Heinz Music is ready to set it off with a bang! Daniel Jaeger is a familiar face to the family and especially loved for his skillful molding of synths. Together with the young and talented Raphael Hofmann he has set out on a deep and mysterious journey, resulting in their “Lost Unit” EP. The title track already sets the tone, and a dark and ominous bassline leads the way towards a soundscape of stabbing and atmospheric synths culminating in a powerful break. Secondly, “Kids On A Riot” continues with a flaring groove and massively pulsating bassline. It is a kind of euphoria hidden in the melody, just eagerly waiting to create some frenzy on the dance floor. Daniel and Raphael’s third original track, “Generation Change”, funks it up a bit. A tight and bouncy drum work sets the scene, introducing mysterious melodic elements and chords, underlining the silky vocals.
On remix duty for “Lost Unit” they have gotten DJ Lion on board, the label owner of Patent Skillz and a guy considered to be one of the Balkan’s pioneers of underground music. Style wise the remix gets a bit rougher around the edges. It is a powerful dynamic going on here between DJ Lions dirty bassline and the somewhat reshaped melodic elements from the original. The second remix is from German based DJ and producer Joseph Disco, who is adored world wide for his captivating music and performance style. Joseph has put his hands on “Generation Change”, stripped it down to the essentials and then used the parts to create an infectious tune vibing off of the strong bassline and the deep and dark melodic synths, supported by neat percussions.
It is a huge release ready to create a stir among old and new followers, the style hitting the nerve of time perfectly. No doubt this great selection of tracks is soon to be heard on dance floors all over the globe.
