For more than fifteen years, Johannes Heil has been an essential part of the German techno scene and with his classics such as "Paranoid Dancer" (Kanzleramt, 1998) or "Calling" (Kanzleramt, 1999), he belongs to the acoustic long-term memory of techno. However, in the last few years, with his releases for Klang Elektronik, Anthony Rother's Datapunk label and several other imprints like JH Records, Metatron or, most recently, Shit Happens, Johannes remains one of the guarantors for musical enhancements. With his eighth studio album Loving, Heil takes stock of his 15 years of musical past, in a modern and at the same time traditional way. He uses influences from Detroit house only superficially; the history of modern dance music that he tells is that of music as the universal language between all continents. So, one can find broken rhythms, combined with African chants as well as a terrific, pumping electro bass line and pizzicato strings, hypnotically dancefloor-binding sub-bass runners or samba percussion tracks with marching band citations and weightless Detroit high-tech house -- all of them equally part of the comprehensive vocabulary of... yes, love. After all, love is an emotional condition that still feels the best in the present tense. Maybe the time of love is now, in the year 2010. "With Loving I want to embrace the whole world, because this journey to the origins of electronic dance music in between modern Detroit, high-tech soul and house is coming from the very bottom of my heart." --Johannes Heil, 2010
