A. Pink Panzer B. Argonaut
Since their first release as Extrawelt 'Soopertrack' dropped on Border Community in 2005 Arne
Schaffhausen and Mayan Raabe have had a remarkable run. They relentlessly toured the world with
their highly esteemed live show and released plenty of killer releases on labels like Traum or Cocoon.
Naturally, our ears were wide open when the Hamburg-based couple sent over a bunch of new
productions to the KOMPAKT HQ. Announced as what they call a new, alternative path of production
for them, more precisely "less computer, more hands on" we were directly intrigued by the power and
rawness of their new sound.
In particular, two cuts stood out: 'PINK PANTHER' is pure analog funk. A sluggish beat is paired with
a highly effective synth riff. The idea is as simple as it gets but it's executed in such a masterful way.
You can drop this track anywhere and anytime - it'll certainly set things on fire right away.
'ARGONAUTS' follows an equally simple recipe but ups the tempo and energy levels by 100%. Heavy
prime time saw tooth techno for the new generation that recall vintage Thomas P. Heckmann –
perhaps if he were to wake up in a funky mood.
