It’s time once again for Cocoon Recording’s annual in-house mix compilation, this year reaching number eight, or Acht as it is in German. The label looks back on another good year with compilations from Paul Ritch, Cassy & Joris Voorn and Sven himself plus Daniel Stefanik’s LP and the 13th Ibiza Season. Now, we journey through some of the imprint’s recent highlights compiled and mixed once again by Chris Tietjen.
Chris has been part of the Cocoon story since his teenage years and has been behind each of the label’s ‘number’ compilations to date. His understanding and feeling for the music and the people that make it allows him to bring together the often-varied sounds of Cocoon. For this latest in the series, it’s a selection that encompasses music from an array of talent including Maetrik, Daniel Stefanik, Sian, Mark Broom and Secret Cinema to name just a few. Chris Tietjen appears himself with two collaborative offerings featuring Markus Fix and Ricardo Villalobos. It’s out today.
