The 4th single of the new album from Alex Christensen & The Berlin Orchestra – Classical 90s Dance called “Das Boot”. The original version by U96 was 14 week number #1 and is still one of the most successful singles in Germany ever! Preorder & listen to the new album “Classical 90s Dance” here: http://ift.tt/2kFbM6I
Release date: 10/06/2017 – With Classical 90s Dance this reserved German has come full circle, as he puts it. “‘Das Boot’ was originally a piece for strings. But when we recorded it with U96 in 1991, I had neither the knowledge nor the tools to record with strings. The fact that I’ve now been able to combine orchestral music with my dance roots while recording Classical 90s Dance rounds out my entire oeuvre. People can finally understand why Christensen spent ten years on orchestral music.” Alex Christensen created the 49-member Berlin Orchestra, a gathering of the capital’s best orchestral musicians, specifically for this album. And he hired very young female vocalists exclusively, with the plan to revitalize a selection of the best techno dance tracks of the 90s with a modern sensibility.
Who could have been more predestined for this task than Alex Christensen? Under his direction Classical 90s Dance has become an extraordinary project, large and ambitious – much more than a remake or remix of early-90s hits. Together Christensen and the Berlin Orchestra rock the patina and mildew from the graceful contours of the 14 songs. “Once the pieces were freed from their admittedly antiquated-sounding gowns, I felt there were first-rate songs with wonderful structures hiding behind the dance costumes, if you will,” Christensen rhapsodizes. “They have entered the DNA of people my age or 15 to 20 years younger. I’m sure a lot of people will revel in these songs again when they hear our modern versions. They sound like they’ve continued their logical development.”
Rhythm Is A Dancer, Sonic Empire, Nessaja in the Scooter version, What Is Love, Redemption, and Children can be discovered and enjoyed differently in the new Classical 90s Dance versions: still danceable but no longer arranged primarily for dancing – not by a long shot. The Rise / No Limit even plays around with sumptuous Wagner references and so really has no limits any longer. “When I was selecting the songs for the album, of course I had a mountain of material to work with,” recalls Alex Christensen. “However, quite a few things didn’t make it to the final decision because they simply didn’t move me. But all the songs that made it into the album have great emotional value. Classical 90s Dance could have a subtitle if it weren’t so long: The evolution of dance tracks into songs whose emotional content is unconditionally moving.”

A powerful cut from beginning to end, ‘Dancing Together’ isn’t just brimming with a dominant bassline and empowering percussion, but also sends an important message with the vocal topline: “people of all nations, dancing together.”

Even with its extraordinary appearance, The HouseKaspeR from Leipzig conjures a smile to every face. His crazy style and his experimental style of clothing and various other gimmicks are unique, just like his musical style.
He finds himself in the House genre. Sometimes harder, sometimes softer, he also crosses any creative boundaries and tries to celebrate a cool, crazy and unique journey together with the audience in his sets.
Whoever expects to have an everyday House-Act behind the Booth is a great mistake! With his show packed with many crazy highlights, such as His trademark “KasparR Mask” or his Hello Kitty floats, Robby Bubble champagne, confetti cartons and and and it will definitely not be boring with him.
The HouseKaspeR has already been able to collect more than a large amount of references.
The WeekEnd in Berlin, the Diamond Factory in Magdeburg, the Music Park in Dresden, the Nightlfy in Schwarzenberg, the Club Velvet, the Nachcafe, the Alte Hauptpost and the Leipzig Volksspalast are only a small excerpt of his club references. He has also recorded various major events such as the SonnenMondSterne Festival, the Sputnik Springbreak Festival, the StereoCity Festival. Even in the international arena, the HouseKaspeR was able to convince itself of the Dinxperlo arena in the Netherlands.
The HouseKaspeR is therefore on the way to become a top number in the national and international regions!
It’s hard to believe an entire decade has gone by since Claude VonStroke first released ‘Who’s Afraid of Detroit”. But believe it or not, we’ve reached the 10 year mark of one of the biggest hits of Claude’s career, and we felt it’s about time for some fresh takes on the track that helped launch VonStroke and Dirtybird.
For the 10 year anniversary, we tapped into the Motor City’s outstanding talent pool and enlisted an amazing lineup of Detroit artists to help us celebrate. Besides Claude VonStroke’s brand new 2016 remix, we also included mixes from techno icons Octave One, minimal techno pioneer Marc Houle (Windsor is close enough!), and the accomplished trio Visionquest.
Not limiting the Detroit based artist package to just the music, the haunting release artwork comes to us from Michigan illustrator Dan May. In addition, a dark David Lynch style music video comes from award winning Detroit director, Anthony Ernest Garth.
“Who’s Afraid of Detroit Remixes” will be released on the 10th anniversary of the Movement Festival in what city?. Detroit, of course.
