OSTGUT TON (GERMANY)
One of the most heavily vibed mix CDs of 2005, largely focusing on the Kompakt family of distributed labels. "
is the first mix CD from the Berlin based club institution of the same name. Since its opening at the end of 2004, the successor of the seminal Ostgut constantly built a reputation for its breathtaking architecture (keeping much of the former heatplant's monumental appearance from the Stalin era), for its uncompromising sound philosophy, for the integration of contemporary art, as well as for its wildly mixed and enthusiastic crowd. Launching their own record label Ostgut Tonträger was just a logical progression. Along the lines of the Berghain/Panorama bar division, the club kickstarts the label with its own mix series, exclusive vinyl releases will follow next year. André Galluzzi is one of the most charismatic DJs around today. As a resident at both the old Ostgut and the new Berghain he was given the chance to experiment freely which finally lead to his very own, versatile style ranging from summery garden sets, to hard hitting peak time slammers, as well as trippy after hour moments, representing every facet of an intense party weekend. This made André Galluzzi last but not least part of Sven Väth's Cocoon artist roster. His mix for
has been created live and direct. No digital post production, no corrections. One could say, it's an authentic set with all the hissing and crackling making the work with vinyl a very warm and human thing. The mix is dense, consistent and pumping. Minimal, but by no means eventless. Without obvious hits, but rich with highlights. Galluzzi created a darkly shimmering flow, a hypnotic journey with psychedelic potential. He has intuitively woven 13 tracks from more or less known minimal labels into each other, provoking a drift towards losing oneself in the sound, which, after all, is a quality so many people love him for." Features tracks from Lusine, Monne Automne, C:C/P, Alex Under, Daniel Stefanik, Ali Khan, Maetrik, Daniel Taylor, 2 Dollar Egg, Taksi, Wighnomy Brothers, Ame, Metaboman,
