Mijk created a new 2-track 12″ called “Denn es ist wie es ist, weil Du bist wie Du bist”
(German for: “Cause it is what it is, since you are the way you are”).
It’s out now on BluFin-Records from Cologne.
The fat vinyl mastering has been provided by Martin Eyerer. This is what BluFin label boss Andrea Engels wrote in her newsletter:
New in the BluFin roster. Mijk Van Dijk ,the man with a lot of hits like the alltime anthem Marmion. He keeps up the pressure and is back with outstanding new releases in 2006.
Weil Du bist, wie Du bist – actually a german statement that can be read both ways, with a positive or sceptical view on the people around. Already DJing since the late 80s, berlin based top producer MIJK VAN DIJK sure has seen it all from the view of DJ boothes as well as generally in music business worldwide. Maybe it’s a final conclusion you draw, when you start realizing that things as well as people just are as they are, and that your music can express feelings more then words could do. The Synths have a certain melancholic feeling, embedded in strong minimal drumming and a warm general mood that goes along with the sound of recent producers like Martin Landsky, Loco Dice or John Tejada. Catching you up in the warmup time, pushing you further at the peaktime, calming you down in the morning. This record fits it all. Certainly a bigtime player in every minimal touched DJ Set.
Available at your favourite record store or at Decks-Records.
