Sven Väths empire stroke back this July, when the techno overlord returned to Cocoon London at matter, bringing a crack squadron of the extended Cocoon familys very best talent for another night (and morning...) of non-stop pyrotechno.
With the April debut selling out well in advance, the scene was set for a night that truly earned the tag Epic Sven was joined by Chris Tietjen, Extrawelt live, Dorian Paic and Jamie Jones (ably deputising for the sadly absent Onur Özer), with the staggering all-pervading atmosphere remaining undimmed at 8am, when the afterparty kicked off on matters 2nd floor with the dancefloor full until well into Sunday afternoon. Only a few weeks remain until the hugely anticipated return, for which Cocoon have pulled together a superb selection of house and technos most keenly talented DJs and producers.
Engaging Room 1 with another of his extended sets, Sven was all set to turn matter into his own personal playground once more, delivering big-room smashers with the odd surprise dropped in. Joining him was Reboot, who took to the stage this time around, bringing his arresting live show following Extrawelts live performance in April. Under his Reboot guise, Frank Heinrich has contributed house-inflected deep mimimal techno to labels including Cocoon, Cadenza and Moon Harbour with his original compositions and remixes of Guy Gerber and Matthias Tanzmann. The Frankfurt producers live sets build steadily with delicate percussive grooves and elegantly constructed beats, a perfect companion to the swelling atmosphere of any Cocoon night.
Room 2 was in the capable hands of Onur Özer, who finally arrived at matter following the late cancellation of his appearance in April due to visa issues. The more intimate surrounding of matters second room will reverberate to the elementally funky rolling beats of the Turkish tyro, whos elevated the minimal and tech house styles by infusing it with the warmer sounds of the Istanbul scene he helped invigorate, involving himself in the founding of several new club venues in the city since the turn of the century. Completing the bill was Cocoons Frank Lorber a veteran of their parties in Frankfurt and Ibiza and Christian C-Rock Rindermann, the multi-monikered founder of Stir15 Recordings and Lo-Fi Stereo who runs the Going Deeper night at Cocoon Club in Frankfurt.
