Felix Kröcher - Catena EP
Longstanding German techno icon Felix Kröcher is back again with ‘Catena’ EP, a club-orientated composition once again proving Felix as a master of his craft. Out now on the Italian-based Deeperfect Records, ‘Catena’ EP is available to purchase via all digital retailers.
The A-side ‘Catena’ is a departure from Felix’s usual style and proves his ability to adapt whilst maintaining his output of hi-definition soundscapes. The track itself is a restrained and classy affair, with resonating sub bass kept aloft by driving percussion. With each sound and frequency occupying its own space, Felix has created a polished and unquestionably refined end product. Armed with an undeniable groove, ‘Catena’ is yet another demonstration of Felix’s effortless aptitude for remaining in sync with his audience, both as a DJ and a producer. With a gradual, syncopated build punctuated by an ethereal arpeggiated lead, Felix has successfully created a track for both home and dance floor.
In true Felix Kröcher style, the German maestro takes us on a dynamic, electrifying journey with B-side ‘Stars’. Complementing the subtleties of the A-side, Kröcher channels a more animated tech-house sound with ‘Stars’. Swelling pads and an echoing vocal track smoothly embed into the listener’s consciousness whilst the 4/4 kick keeps tempo. Open hi-hats and accomplished percussion carry the track and supplement the euphoric release of tension as the track ebbs and flows. Rolling seamlessly between builds and breaks, ‘Stars’ takes the listener on an uplifting and vitalizing musical journey. An ode to Felix’s talent, ‘Stars’ will undoubtedly see a huge amount of airtime in clubs around the world.
Fellow German-born producer, Wigbert has taken up remix duties on ‘Catena,’ successfully injecting his sophisticated and minimal style whilst staying true to the emotion of the original. Italian DJ Umberto Pagliaroli joins the EP with his remix of ‘Stars’, a deep tech-house affair with tribal percussion and a definitive groove. With each remix providing a new dimension, Felix’s ‘Catena’ EP will appeal to both veteran and fledging techno aficionados.
A true icon of German techno, Felix’s impeccable productions have gained him a fervent and loyal fan base around the world. Felix’s longstanding weekly radio show on Sunshine Live and his stellar performances at some of the best venues and festivals across the world mean his already global support base is ever increasing.
