The Cocoon label presents the third mix CD associated with the Green & Blue Open Air festival, mixed by Steve Bug and Chris Tietjen. Steve Bug has been a welcome guest since the early beginning of Cocoon Recordings, and he has prepared a magnificent house set, starting with an exceptional track at the beginning of his set. Christian Smith's rework of "At Les," THE classic track from the album More Songs About Food And Revolutionary Art by Carl Craig from 1997, is already now one of the most visionary tech-house tracks of this season and is here available for the first time on CD. Both the asynchronous xylophon-play from Kenny Larkin's "Glob" and the bass line endurance operation "The Light" by André Lodemann are to be warmly recommended, amongst the other moments of surprise in this mix. Chris Tietjen has established himself as a member of Cocoon, with his fingers on the pulse like nobody else. In his mix, Chris remains true to his DJ style, which is an exceptionally groovy form of reduced tech-house where he creates plenty of breathing space within his tracks. Gadi Mizrahi starts with a soulful tribal bomb followed by Lee Burridge's and Matthew Dekay's organic, jazzy "Wongel." Other highlights include the U.S. house tribute by Nikola Gala and "Deadly Bees" from CJ Jeff. Other artists include: James Kumo, Ethyl & Flori, Azuni, Mr. G, Kink, Robag Wruhme, Boris Horel, Ion Simmonds, Dave Aju, Jay Shepheard, Suedmilch, Suzi Q. Smith, Nick Höppner, Tony Lionni, Deetron, Jonny White & James Teej, Donnacha Costello, Neville Watson, Davide Squillace, Christian Burkhardt, Makam, Massimo Di Lena, DJ Said & Jerome Sydenham, Marco Nastic, Ben Klock, Markus Fix, Matias Muten, and Lucien-N-Luciano.
