Der Dritte Raum – Mechanoid (Mijk van Dijk-Remix) – Der Dritte Raum Records 005

Der Dritte Raum – Mechanoid (Mijk van Dijk-Remix) – Der Dritte Raum Records 005

When Andreas Krüger of Der Dritte Raum asked me for a remix of one of his tracks, I was of course very much tempted to pick his Über-Hit “Trommelmaschine”. But listening once again to all those Der Dritte Raum tunes, I suddenly felt tempted to remix “Mechanoid” due to it’s delicate arpeggios and sounds. However I wanted to use them in a totally different way by fusing them with a  BoogieHouse beat. Andreas had carefully resurrected or reconstructed the original sounds and it was a joy to browse through all the details of the original track. Playing around with those bits and pieces, I also tried things like changing the scale of certain elements and discovered that the Mechanoid arpeggio on half speed reminded me of the intro of Duran Duran’s “Morning After”. Hey presto, what a way to start that remix. I am very happy with the result and so was Andreas, who made sure to include it to the first remix package on last minute. Other remixes were provided by high profilic producers like Dominik Eulberg and Gabriel Ananda, Alexander Kowalski, Fenin, Index ID and Toby Dreher. My only drawback is that the remix really does not live up to the original’s name: it’s everything but mechanical, it’s a melodic extravaganza floating over a boogie beat. I even feel it’s like a blueprint for my forthcoming productions in 2013. How do you like it? Available now on all major download stores and...

Welcome to my new website

Welcome to my new website

My dear Friends, finally I am creating my own space which is not related to MySpace or Facebook. I do like those social networks a lot, but let’s be honest: we don’t know how long they will survive and we have absolutely no clue, what they are doing with our data. So after having spend hours and hours on modding my MySpace page before it became “DeadSpace”, I feel that my spare time is better used to create my own space which is totally mine. Of course I will post to Facebook and tweet to Twitter, but you will surely find the latest information here first. So please bear with me for a while since this is yet a building site. Hope you’ll check in soon again and find this website polished and ready to use for all your needs about myself and my music. I wish you a wonderful year...
