Cocoon Recordings' very own "best of" series presents the next issue which is again simply called by the number of the release-order. So it's number nine, this time ("Neun"). Sven Väth has once again chosen Chris Tietjen to compile and mix the pearls of the last Cocoon Recordings releases. Tietjen started as a young gun in Väth's Cocoon Booking agency and developed into a proper club DJ. He even released his first solo 12" on Cocoon Recordings in 2012 which marked his final arrival in the techno business. Tietjen's progression as a DJ is clearly noticeable here as he laid down a very elegant and smooth overall mix. He starts the journey with two Matt John and one Minilogue track, which creates a very moody and warm introduction. The transition into the following part can be seen as a kind of "warm up" one would like to hear in a good techno club. Next in the mix are Adam Port, Popof (Animal & Me) and Nick Curly, who step by step feed the mix with more energy. From minute 22 onwards, the mix starts to kick in and the bass-cabinets of your speakers should definitely move stronger now. Pele & Shawnecy, Sante & Frank, André Galluzzi & Dana Ruh are the following names in the mix and together with the next track by Mauro Picotto & Riccardo Ferri, we have four strong collaborations. It seems the "techno duet" is the new way to create cool club music these days. The ending section is based on tracks by wAFF, Julien Bracht, Temma Teje, Uner and Mind Against and it is the dignified counterpart to the elegant beginning. Tietjen manages to swing out as smooth as he started the mix. To cut a long story short: Neun turns out to be a very nice overview of what has happened over the last months in the Cocoon Recordings universe and it definitely calls out for more.
