Label: Gibbon Records
Release date: 2015-05-25
Catalog number: GIB013
Moritz Hofbauer is a new emerging talet from Germany, at 17 years of age he comes to Gibbon Records for his debut in the form of two tracks entitled “Stroke and “Circuit”.
Stroke is a melodic journey that has moments of sunshine laced with a melancholic feel. A underlying groove that drives along feeds the dancefloor wonderfully and creates some beautiful moments.
Following this up is a tech-house monster in the guise of “Circuit”. a driving building bassline, pushes the intensity levels harder and harder until the beat drops in and all hell breaks loose, filled with energy this is guaranteed to fill any floor and create that perfect clubbing moment.~
Backing these two original productions up are remixes of “Stroke” from another Gibbon newcomer – Stefan Bondzio. he takes the melodic beauty of the original and turns it on it’s head introducing a sophisticated deep techy groove.
Followed up by a remix from none other than producer in residence – Bootleg Ben who never fails to make a remix his own, Bootleg’s style is all over this remix and he takes things into a realm of 4am deepness.
Completing the remix duties is Yoshiwara, albeit new to Gibbon in fact this is one half of renowned deep house act “PHCK”, taking the original of stroke not too far from its original sound yet somehow managing to create yet again something very personalized and unique.
