Even though I grew up in a small town in the South of Germany, I would say we had a thriving house and techno scene. One of its constant driving forces has been DJ Shaddy aka Sebastian Stang – Always trying to infect new people with this beautiful virus called House Music :-) Thanks for the Music Mr. Shaddy!
He played every venue, initiated uncountable parties, co-founded a club himself, and since a few years he has his own label with Mark Burow called Foul & Sunk, releasing artists such as the infamous Borrowed Identity.
So lately Shaddy launched a new label called Corp. Music, focussing as always on high quality music. The Corp. 001 is called Cottbus and was produced by the almighty Johannes Albert. Since his highly acclaimed debut LP on his own label Frank Music and constantly releasing fantastic EPs on labels such as Fine Records, Johannes Albert has become one of the most aspiring German House DJs.
Well, well, well, Cottbus is quite a mover, a warm atmospheric Techno stepper, an anthem for the festivals and the clubs as well. Johannes Albert starts Cottbus with a minimal set, slowly preparing the floor for what will come next: a damn fantastic break :-) Cottbus has its roots definitely in Detroit and is heavily influenced by Minimal Music, reminds a bit of earlier tracks by Ame.
By the way Ame, Gerd Janson, Skream, Adam Port, and, and, and… are dropping this track:-) So, give it a try and show some love for this passion project, fueled by talent and love for the music :-)
