BluFin Records from Cologne is a fine label for Techno, Tech and House, established by Andrea Engels in the 00 years. I released my first EP on BluFin in 2006. It was called Denn Es Ist Wie Es Ist, Weil Du Bist Wie Du Bist EP (BluFin 017, roughly translated: “It is like it is because you are how you are”) and was created alongside other productions like the Motherwomb EP on Frisbee Tracks and my Plato productions on Big & Dirty. That’s basically how I sounded in the times between Superstition Records and my trip into NuFunk in 2010. I would release several more EPs on BluFin there like the Boa/ Mamba EP in 2007 (BluFin 032) and my beloved Xmas Carols EP in 2008, the Christmas record that I always wanted to make and love to post again and again every Christmas season. And just a couple of months ago, my friend Rummy Sharma and me released our first collaborative EP on BluFin, the very successful Bleibtreu EP, produced partly in New Delhi, partly in Bleibtreustrasse in Berlin.
And I came back to the label with a remix for DJ Hildegard.
In the same year 2014, BluFin earned the DCC award for Best Label Of The Year, which made all of us at BluFin super-proud. 😉
My personal highlight of my BluFin releases so far was the Ebony & Ivory EP (BluFin 068) from 2010. But the very first song I ever released there always stayed on my mind and I felt the urge to give it an update.
So when label head honchess Andrea asked me for an exclusive track for her 10 Years anniversary compilation, it was an obvious choice to do a rework of Denn Es Ist Wie Es Ist.
So here it is for your listening pleasure and when you wanna own it, grab it at Beatport or the shop of your choice.
Or grab the whole compilation with 21 exclusive crackers of all the BluFin artists.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BLUFIN!!! 🙂
