Watergate 20

WG 020CD WG 020CD

For the 20th installment of its mix series, Watergate turns to its own Matthias Meyer, a man well known for his poignant and impassioned productions and DJ sets. Over the course of 80 minutes, Meyer skillfully navigates through boundless sonic spaces of lush melodics, organic grooves, and sentimental sensations with an effortless approach. From the very beginning, emotions run deep as the sound of rain and strings on Kettenkarussell's "Ten Friends" sets the stage for YokoO & Retza's exclusive track "Satori" and Leafar Legov's "Tribal Girls" to establish the percussive tone of the mix. The journey really begins to unfold when back-to-back exclusive tracks from Gorje Hewek & Izhevski ("Turgoyakk") and Meyer himself ("Uluwatu") take over. As the mix picks up steam, tracks from Palms Trax, Langenberg, and Hyenah (feat. Nonku) and another exclusive from Meyer provide the perfect momentum to drive things into the deeper side as the mix takes a turn toward the final stretch. The alluring sounds of Marco Resmann's "Fluid of Life" and Innervisions Orchestra's mix of Underworld's "Crocodile" set the stage for a stunning farewell as Patlac's remix of Meyer's "Ostinato" and Traumprinz's twist on Efdemin's "Parallaxis" bid us adieu in a manner reminiscent of a Northern Exposure mix from masters like Sasha & John Digweed. From start to finish, Meyer displays his sound and range with a master's touch, fully demonstrating the reason for his highly in-demand status. Also includes tracks by Johannes Beck remixed by Tristen, GHIZ, Herzel remixed by Palms Trax, Raucherecke, Alejandro Mosso, and Vessels remixed by Barker & Baumecker.
