The Cocoon label presents the second volume in its Silk Pearls series of compilations. It is a well-known fact that the Cocoon Club is one of the most exciting venues in Germany; its affiliated restaurants are also some of the most spectacular places to indulge your palate. After only three years, chef Mario Lohninger has, together with his team, succeeded in making the Silk Bed Restaurant one of the hottest restaurants in the Republic. The Austrian-born chef brings together the best cuisines of the world to the highest stage and was awarded a Michelin star in 2007. The flavorful sensations are supported by a musical journey through foreign countries and their cultures. The second edition of Silk Pearls offers an alternative to your average chill-out and lounge monotony. On this edition, we find three characteristics of the Silk: the choreographed menu, the contemplative atmosphere and the musical suspense. Frank*N, DJ Eastenders, Spy vs. Spy and Stefan-X deliver on two mix CDs a tasteful melange of assuasive dub delays, endless reverb rooms and frugally-deployed vocals, taking the listener on a journey through the unique world of Silk sound design. Artists include: Jam N, Frequenzy Surfer, Western Rebel Alliance, Dousk, Pan Electric, Tripswitch, Ott, Padmasana, Hol Baumann, Eastenders, Shanti Roots & Scheibosan, Praful, Kareem Raihani, Move D, Trentemøller, J.
