It’s time for LUM040! We like powerful synths here at Lauter Unfug, we like big bad drum kits, fat low down bass lines and infectious grooves.
Fabs# Cubic EP is no exception and delivers on all fronts.
With a deep remix from Douglas Greed and a Techy remix from Ryan Dupree. A pumping late night track directed straight down the middle for your dancing pleasure. Winter maybe here but we are running hot!

Bio: Amongst all the multi-genre mashing and the come-and-go tunes of the day, it can be hard to pick out something which has a shelf life longer than the next epileptic bassline to quake the local dancefloor or the latest remix from a moribund LFO maniac, slowly descending into blog house madness. However, into that void steps a producer with a history for sticking to his aesthetic guns; a producer who’s not afraid to touch the other side of the genre explosion; a producer who arrives at the party armed with a suitcase full of subtlety and an outlook more akin to the artists of old.
Chook is that artist, and The Cocoon, Chook’s debut long-playing project, moves beautifully through drum & bass, minimal techno and stunning ambient soundscapes without pausing for breath. The Cocoon is the culmination of a decade’s worth of hard work. In 2004, Chook launched Full Force Recordings as an output for the fierce and disturbing side of European techno influenced drum & bass. The label garnered support right from the off with DJs as diverse as Roni Size, J Majik and Calyx & Teebee all queuing up to work Full Force’s releases into their sets. Chook, alongside friends such as Germany’s Phace (Subtitles), New Zealand’s State of Mind (Shogun Audio) and USA’s Mayhem (Ram Records) put the label firmly on the map with tracks from some of the world’s finest breakbeat artists, keeping the music policy as credible, long-lasting D&B.
Now, six years since he started Full Force, Chook delves deeper into his influences, spreading his wings as a producer without resorting to cheap tricks and sheep-like trend following. From the growling bass of Optimus Prime through to the inch- perfect elements of Time Running Backwards and the building, spacious progression of Toontown, The Cocoon is a lesson in staying true to your beliefs and sticking the middle finger to those who dare question your motives. Some might consider that a lost art in drum & bass these days.

Bio: Born 1985 in Luxembourg, this young talent discovered his passion for electronic music at the age of 15. Two years later he took his first steps in music production and DJing. In 2007 he released his first Track on Yenns YARecords, followed by several remixes. 2009 was a good year for the young man, as he gained recognition by one of the industries finest house DJ’s, Ian Carey, who took ND Catani on his own imprint GFab Records, giving him the chance to remix Names such as The Ian Carey Project – Get Shaky, Beatthiefs, or Soul-avengers. In the mean time Andy started his side Project MINE(Minimal is not enough) which gained big support from download portals like Trackitdown or Beatport, featuring and charting his releases.
2011 brought another big step in Andy’s career, he released his first Album on Yenn’s noobish records, and Martin Solveig released his remix of the Hit Single “Hello” on his Label Mixture recordings. 2012 was a bit quiet, but Andy was still active, producing unreleased stuff, like La PaSoLe, a summer anthem, that’s still hot. And another project was born: The Green Lung with his mate, Djail Green, there attitude is to produce tracks that brings people a smile. And now since 2013 Andy is back under his Old Pseudonym ND Catani, on his focus: the more deep and techy side of the House-genre.
Normal that this man does not only produce music, no, he’s also a genius in the booth, blending nearly every house genre together into one big performance. So, stay tuned as the future looks very promising for this skilled, extraordinary, uprising artist.
Lauter Unfug Label Boss Riven drops his 4th EP on the Label with 4 massive tunes. The Purple Palms targets the peak hour sets as well as the after hour sessions.
The original mix is a groove piece of work with some well aligned synthesizers, evolving through out the track, joined by some catchy vocal hooks.
“Right On” adds a little old school vibe to the whole, taking the track to the deep house section.
“Appreciate” takes on another groove as Riven focuses more on the percussive elements on this one, releasing a perfect, trippy banger.
Raumakustik on their side, take apart the old radio vocal and add a lot of interesting percussive elements. You can tell the guys had fun putting their remix together.
The Purple Palms EP is one to look out for as it will find it’s way to the dance floors around the world.
Luxembourg’s finest underground progressive tech house imprint Lauter Unfug, round off 2017 in fine style with two dance floor progressive cuts from Italian’s Aki Berger & Richter along with remixes from techno legend Samuel L Sessions plus Lauter Unfug A&R Manager Beatamines.
A1) “BIOS” Original Mix, the pounding kick, tribal percussions and brooding bass line is joined by a full progressive soundscape, with its trippy but enchanting eastern style lead creating tension and intrigue.
A2) “Bios” Samuel L Session. Lauter Unfug enlist the remix services of tribal techno king Samuel L Session, who in the past has gained support from huge industry figures like Laurent Garnier, Rolando, Christian Smith and Adam Beyer. Here he delivers something that’s beautifully light, yet melodic and deep, showcasing cool stabs, Samuel’s signature shakers, yet has enough sub to power the dance floor. A beautiful track for all dance floors this festive season.
B1) “The Key” by Aki Bergen treads a much different path to its predecessor, in the way it’s much lighter and melodic. A beautiful lead emerges during the break – creating a serine moment on the dancefloor, as it’s joined by the beat to create a celebration of all that is good about diversity and the world.
B2) “The Key” by Beatamines turns out another top draw remix that oozes electronic warmth and deepness. Its wide variety of sounds and styles later builds towards a cataclysmic and satisfying finale.
Hamburg based Istanbulites Discoschorle debut on Luxembourg’s finest underground progressive tech house imprint Lauter Unfug, with two dance floor bangers that get the remix treatment from FABS#, Mon Groove & Fonclair.
A1) Discoschorle drops a huge grooving house bomb, that’s packed with cool vocal snippets and hypnotic arpeggiated synth lines that inspire things to get busy on the dance floor.
A2) Hamburg’s Ubel&Gefahrlich resident FABS# elects to go big just like the original, dropping his own massive groove that will make people go nuts in equal measure. He manages to avoid the same formulaic arrangement that so many tracks do today and in-turn creates something fairly original sounding.
A3) Mon Groove interpretation is random and dark in places, almost fooling the listener into thinking it’s gonna get nasty at points; but the groove rescues the mood and gets heads back together again. More original sounding stuff.
B1) Discoschorle drop their second cut of the EP that we suspect were creating this for the closing part of a set. This one’s packed with cool vocal samples and driving, yet dubby bass, that will get feet stomping and hands in the air, whilst the melody creates the feeling of ecstasy.
B2) Fonclair in his inimitable dark twisted dark style uses the vocal snippets to maximum effect whilst stripping this one back to its bare minimal bones. A trippy weapon for the early hours or one for letting the dance floor know you really mean business.
Chris Veron has been active as a DJ in the scene since the early 90s and finally entered in to the production foray back in 2014. Here he delivers 3 solid cuts aimed squarely at the dancefloor backed up with remixes from Lauter Unfug label co-founder Riven plus Stil Vor Talent’s Several Definitions.
A1) Black Synth is pumping house cut with progressive tendencies. Easily a cross over track for any kind of dance floor.
A2) Label co-founder Riven drops a darker tech house interpretation that’s suitable for the peak time hours.
A3) Stil Vor Talent’s Several Definitions goes for a deeper, melancholic take on Chris Veron’s original – delivered in a neo progressive style – with some nice electronic elements shining through in the mix. The breakdown is exceptionally nice but perhaps a little too dark for many classic progressive DJs.
B1) Chris Veron’s ‘Startflight’ is a hypnotic and futuristic sounding prog tech affair, offering passengers a twisted journey through the kaleidoscope of sounds.
C1) White Shadow is a groove laden affair that packs plenty of punch. Very nice stuff indeed from Veron who manages to perfect the balance between deepness and power.
Straight Ahead Music’s label boss Sascha Sonido makes his debut on Luxembourg’s finest underground imprint Lauter Unfug, with two excellent melodic progressive tech bangers that gets the remix treatment from MRZDK & Mathias Schaffhausen!
Sascha Sonido and his label have carved out a reputation for producing emphatic club music and Spaceship is no different. Here he fuses all the best elements of progressive house, techno and melodic techno in to a huge sounding banger that builds to a huge crescendo.
Flo MRZDK is an artist that’s really starting to build quite a reputation. He takes on the mighty task of remixing ‘Spaceship’ and smashes his remix out of the park – making perfect use of Sascha Sonido’s original’s massive lead, giving us something far more driving, electronic and heads down.
Mathias Schaffhauser demonstrates his ability to tell a story through music but yet aim it squarely at the dancefloor. Imagine it’s judgement day and you’re on the battle field and defending the earth from an alien invasion. As you’d expect it’s an emotional, apocalyptic sounding rollercoaster of a journey and one we’re sure your crowd would love to experience too.
Sascha Sonido’s second original Gravity brings us back down to earth but not with too much of a bump. Far more progressive sounding than the previous original, it’s still banging and again perfect for the dance floor.
