 Notes & Reviews
Within electronic music Sven VAth represents more than a single style. Sven embodies the music as a whole, he cherishes every facet of Techno and House. VAth has experienced the music as it emerged in the mid-eighties. From this moment on, he has helped to shape it year after year. VAth produced seminal music, his labels created and create it's very own unmistakable brand of music, he ran a club and several booking agencies. Cocoon is a global identification mark for high quality parties and festivals. Those are major achievements, but they are overshadowed by VAth DJing abilities. Like no one else, VAth manages to capture the current figuration of our beloved electronic dance music in it's entirety and melds it into a single, stirring story. In the summer 2016, VAth invited the global electronic music community to the Mediterranean island of Ibiza for the 17th time. Soft, friendly chords and bird chirps from Swedish producer Harald BjOrk woo us to the dance floor. The kittenish hookline is open to any kind of playful swing, yet it follows the tender, springy groove with the self-assuredness of a dream walker. VAth weaves Ripperton's upright beats into the track, using suggestive, mysterious reverberations of a distant, graceful melody. With it's delicacy, it captivates our attention becoming more and more decisive and insistent with every iteration. Melting the rhythms of Reggae and House together, Rhauder absorbs this very special mood of composed ease with an unique groove, and develops it further with an attentive, cautious voice of Paul St. Hilaire. Kamran Sadeghi's fascinating synth hooks develop complex, space-grabbing shapes reminding of clouds as they change their shapes within seconds. The groove being able to structure those intricacies without dwindling their richness. Alex & Digby translate this colossal sonic drama into a humorous, imaginative orchestra of rustling and chirping sounds. The track is grounded by a beautiful vocal magically jumping between something like an awe-inspiring prayer, a detached meditation or a childlike singalong. We do not understand the words, but we feel the deep self-awareness of this very special human being. VAth pushes the firm bassline of Traumer into the track. Pulsating with an unexpected timing, Traumer's bass positions the set firmly on the dancefloor. But it is not time to take off. Not just yet. With the gentle piano chords and the luscious house groove of Omar S from Detroit, VAth reaches a magical Zen moment. With John FM's vocal, a charming love song lightens up for a brief moment. Eddie Fowlkes translates this sense of longing into imaginative, rich Fusion Jazz developing a strange poetry. Christopher Rau contrasts this appreciation for elegance with a determined bass drum, centering the mix again. Finally VAth plays a track of his own, the gracefully innocent and downright funny electro pop of 'Electrica Salsa' from 1986. Remixer Roman FlUgel uses futuristic, crystal-clear sounds, simultaneously revealing the modernity of the track and it's striking wit. With VAth doing his legendary 'Baba Baba' chant we are getting ready to reach the destination of the first stage of our journey. VAth led us carefully into the night, employing a richness of sounds and emotions rarely heard before. He plays the final track by Pantha du Prince. The electro pop of the '80s resonates in this track as well. As VAth's offhand humor is transformed into detached thoughtfulness, FlUgel's agile sounds dissolve into a slow drift. The first part of 'The Sound of the 17th Season' guided us into the night, now we are ready for a release of energy and passion. Levon Vincent does not even need a bass drum for an electrifying, sweeping piece of House Music. With a deeply pulsating bassline and an over-the-top organ solo Redshape manages to be even more thrilling. Hot City Orchestra and Andre Galluzzi suspend this tremendous tension with an atmospheric techno track, rooting floating, fluttering echoes with serious, focused acid sounds. Adam Port merges the diverging energies into a single, pul
