20 Years of Kanzeramt Music - K-Themes

Monday 2013, December 09th

For when the days get shorter we provide some of the tunes which were written on Kanzleramt in the last 2 decades. Originally most of them were pushed in a club-frame with 4x4 kicks and loops, which has disguised some of the beautiful themes. Here we simply leave that out and present some song-ideas in their purity. This release contains selected broken- beat tunes of our catalogue and some exclusive and freshly made songs and versions.

The 2st of 3 Anniversary Compilations: "K-Themes" is now available as CD and MP3 Album Bundle at www.kanzleramt.com

Another remix on road...

Tuesday 2012, Jan 31st

After the big success of his remixes for David Durango & Sven Elmlund the labelboss Alexander Kowalski now returns with a own release on Damage Music Berlin.

„Crossing The Borderline“ is a track he is playing in his live-sets all over the globe for a while now. For the studio version of it he could use all that experience and make it a floor tested techno bomb. The heavy bassline and the pumping percussions give the track a strong drive that ends up in a break with sweet strings and flying hypnotic synth-sounds to find it´s release back in the bass again.

Ray's version of "Crossing The Borderline" is darker techno mix. He strips down the track to it´s essential parts. The super dry kickdrum and percussions in combination with the dark reverbs are creating Ray´s own world of techno.

have a listen here right now...
