Following the huge success of Marcel Dettmann, OstGut Ton brings you â€œBerghain 03â€ by Len Faki at the end of april 2009. Before the CD hits the shop, the label releases two 12â€es featuring the exclusive material of Lenâ€™s mix, which, of course, is too good to keep from DJs all over. In detail, â€œBerghain 03 â€“ Part Iâ€ (o-ton 22) contains tracks by Tony Lionni and Radio Slave, â€œBerghain 03 â€“ Part IIâ€ (o-ton 23) contains tracks by Edit-Select and Len Faki himself.
Without a doubt, Tony Lionni is one of last yearâ€™s shooting stars. His tracks on Mule Electronic, Versatile and Aesthetic Audio have been among 2008â€™s freshest productions which effortlessly tapped into Detroit Techno, house and his very own euphoric touch. Although Lionni has taken up producing not too long ago, he already is a seasoned pro as a DJ, as he regularly plays clubs and bars in Manchester since a few years. In all its ardour (letâ€™s not forget the generous use of that piano riff!) â€œFound A Placeâ€ is reminiscent of Mark Kinchenâ€™s best efforts or even early Basement Jaxx.
Radio Slave provides the aptly titled â€œNeverending…..â€ on the b side. Wether he refers to his at times endlessly long tracks with this, or wether he refers to certain party tactics eludes our knowledge. The tracks itself, though, most certainly is one steam roller of a dub techno track with Radio Slave written all over it: a dry and precise kick, a smacking bassline and slow, but consistently modulating stabs complete â€œNeverendingâ€¦..â€ to be the perfect soundtrack to anyoneâ€™s excessive extra time.
