We are very happy to have Kaiserdisco back on Tronic for another EP. This time the duo collaborated with our good friend Karotte. Together they delivered two storming techno tracks. We also have a vinyl only remix from Victor Ruiz. This is the first release from Karotte in over 6 years so hope you enjoy it!
METAMORPHOSIS is the transformation of a state. The woman is more than her outer appearance, the role she incarnates. She struggles for being who she is, understanding her inner self and yield it to the outside. A constant process of change.
Blaenk Minds is a DJ team. For each track the duo plays they produce a video. Each video is a collaboration of different artists.
Martin Eyerer returns to Rejected to fly solo and follow up his popular 2015 outing The Metro with two fresh productions, Run Stop and Troja. The lead track Run Stop with its commanding vocal is a hypnotic tech tool with its mesmeric and metronomic beats and shadowy synth chords enticing the listener.

With this one we let ourselves go a bit into our dark sides. The idea was to consider „lust“ as a sculpture and slowly carve it out of the flesh we put in front of the camera. The story that was supposed to carry this: Tina Dubrovsky is a photographer with a fetishy new age style. The plan was that his video is a documentary of one or two of her shootings. Now after we watch the video ourselves, we have to admit that this idea does not really jump at you… still fun to play it in clubs.
Oh and there is a censored version!
This video we also recorded actually a very long wile ago. Not sure if it was this year actually. Where is my brains. Anyway – For the shooting we came together with Mica and Leni from the fashion label Twisted Talents and the designer Nico Sutor. Mica and Leni brought in crazy skater girl Kim Wibbelt and she again brought in her skater gang Jonathan Meissner, Kilian Kammerer, Robin Schulz and Serkan Schlunke. We recorded slow motions of whatever madness they gave us. Jumps, grinds, curves, flips… and we gave it a smooth post production treatment. The video works with repetition and effects just like a track does. The thinking of a music producer regarding instruments, sounds and arrangements is directly translated to video.
Now the thing is, that the files where laying around and we had them edited to some track, we where experimenting on in the studio. The track evolved over time and eventually we found a label to release it: Areal Records. So track and video finally came together. We gave the stems to Marco Resmann and Areals very own Metope and asked them for a remix. Now while the two audio druids worked their magic, we gave our video to a video wizard Sam Pauwels. Not sure if i can call it „his interpretation“ or just a „weird fuckup“ – its great, watch it! Both remixes came out great. We surely prefer playing them over the original. The video remix for metope is yet to be done. Watch out. Oh and the audio u can buy on Beatport or your fav record store.
We had a friend helping us over the entire course of the shooting. Lucas – he passed away earlier this year. May he dance in the heavens 🙂
To be honest, we recorded Marco Resmann doing some funny sports in our studio almost a year ago. But the track and the video just didn’t get together. Many frustrating hours and eventually the release itself went by – but no video was in sight. Marco did not get mad at us instead we decided that whatever track he puts out next with the same bpm is gonna get the video. After a bit of philosophizing Marco called the track Olympia and put it out on Pokerflat Recordings. Funny side story: As a marketing gag we organized a little get together of some sporty guys and girls in Rio and also called it Olympia. Its getting quite a bit of media coverage. I think this sport event is actually going viral…
A little while ago we had the pleasure working with Brooklyn based Max Nova of Dawn Of Man / Sick Visual. He shot, directed and edited a super tight CLUBVIDEO. On the other side of the big pond he developed a visual aesthetic not very far from ours. It was super exciting to give away control and see him perform his magic. The fashion labels AC BY and HOERTINGERSOLAK put their latest work around Anna & Cecilia. I have to admit, that to me (Kristian) it is always a secret pleasure to see the little love/hate tension between the designers and the models… And then there is this girl we just looove: Anja Kieselbach. We are not only super thankful for her work, but also the atmosphere she brings to the set. Applause also to my girl Tilda – she pulled this one off the ground, production-wise. The track this video is edited to comes from the amazing Pete Oak. His latest release ‚Celsius‘ on Stil vor Talent comes as a 3 track EP and no kidding – we had a super hard time picking one track.
