For techno devotees: Sven Väth’s Cocoon Recordings ’20 Years’ compilation

With two decades of history and accompanying influence on the techno scene, Sven Väth‘s Cocoon Recordings celebrates a well-deserved anniversary with the unveiling of 20 Years: Cocoon Recordings. Having hosted the likes of Loco Dice, Adam Beyer, Richard Villalobos, Guy J, and more, the iconic German label now showcases the artists and the sounds that have brought Cocoon Recordings to its current status as one of the genre’s most longstanding operational forces. Stretching across an exclusive 15-track selection, the 20 year compilation reaps contributions from Solomun, Tiga, Rampa, Pig&Dan, Gregor Tresher, and several more, all of whom bring potent slices of the techno stratosphere in their appearances. The assortment journeys through pounding drums, jittery synthwork, wobbly sound design, and glitched landscapes—diving into the acidic, the astral, and melodic planes. From the uncanny machinations evident in Tiga and Roman Flügel‘s “Look To The Sky,” to the emotive intuitions behind Petar Dundov‘s “Overtone,” ravey textures in Rampa’s “2000,” and organic sonics in Richard Tobar’s “El Eterna,” 20 Years: Cocoon Recordings represents a consolidated spectrum of techno in its most beloved forms through the context of Väth’s imprint. On the milestone occasion, Väth spoke to Dancing Astronaut: Stream 20 Years: Cocoon Recordings below. Featured image: phrank photo/graphicsTags: , , , , , , , , , , ,
