Ohrenschmaus Podcast #045 – Cromby

Our Podcasts

Cromby is the man behind our 45th edition of the monthly displayed house and techno mixes. He blessed us with a nice selection of warm house tunes that have playful jazz elements, warm chords and deepness without limitation. The first time we stumbled across Cromby was back in the days when he released his “Planets and Parks EP” on the Berlin based Tenderpark Imprint by Drei Farben House. Now he is living in the capital city as well and plays some finely mixed house sets in different clubs. With his Boiler Room appearance together with his mate Swoose at the AVA festival he really convinced us to get in touch with him. That’s what we did and here we are now a few months later, presenting his lovely podcast. Please have fun with it and enjoy the 45th mix on Ohrenschmaus Podcast by Cromby.

Review: Iron Curtis - Maple EP - Office Recordings

Review: Iron Curtis – Maple EP – Office Recordings


Iron Curtis makes his return to Office Recordings from Berlin with his “Maple EP” marking the 10th release by Baaz’s imprint. After reminiscing on his “The K.M.S. Years EP”, which was the fourth release by Office Recordings, he now shows his more dubby and minimalistic side. After several releases on labels like Morris Audio, Jackoff Records, Boe Recordings, Hudd Traxx, Retreat, Polytone and his album “Soft Wide Waist Band” on Mirau, he now highlights some dub influences. While we all followed Iron’s progress from beautiful and warm house with focus on chords and strings over to melodic and emotional club music with a more synthetic and modern approach, he secretly crafted some real beauties from the fields of dub techno and ambient, that are now offered to the public as the tenth release on Office.

Review: Korablove - Singular Plankter - Silhouette Tapes

Review: Korablove – Singular Plankter – Silhouette Tapes


The “Singular Plankter” EP by Korablove is the third release by Silhouette Tapes, which resides in Bayreuth. It was founded by cold_am, ShoutLove, VesOFF and Rostislav Kulchitskiy. On their cassette label they release some dark, dubby and experimental tracks from the fields of techno, house, ambient and everything that fits their vision. With Korablove they engaged a skilled producer who has already released his less experimental stuff on labels like Studio R, Elusive, 200 Records, Pro-Tez, Apparel Music, Herz ist Trumpf and so on. His “Singular Plankter” EP depicts an unknown side of him, playing with everlasting pads, broad strings and calmer drums. Keep reading

Ohrenschmaus Podcast #043 – Markus “Mutze” Mutzenbacher

Our Podcasts

We open things up with the return of Markus “Mutze” Mutzenbacher in 2017. The Würzburg based resident of MS Zufriedenheit, Piknik and Kontur offered us a nice trip through ambient, house, techno and break beat. It is so good we had to bring him and his outstanding taste back to Ohrenschmaus Podcast. So here it is 71 minutes of well selected and precisely mixed tracks for the cold January. His great abilities are not just notable in his wonderful mixes, Markus also has the knowledge and understands the craft like no other when it comes to smooth warm ups and danceable closing sets. To put it in a nutshell he is a hell of a dj! Thanks for the second contribution to the series, we are delighted!

Apollo, the second release on Olympos, shapes the profile of the Greek based label another time. 4 deep and melodic techno anthems stay anonymous again.

Review: Unknown Artist – Apollo – Olympos


The second release from Olympos is called “Apollo” and once again delivers a nice variety of contemporary club tracks from the fields of house and techno. Apollo is the god of light, cure and spring in Greek mythology to bring you the title a bit closer. As usual the artist behind this EP stays unknown for now, nevertheless it’s obvious that whoever it is really has some great sense for crafting sharp and powerful rhythms. After the strong first release the label from Greek keeps up his great effort and shapes his profile once more. Keep reading

Mix of the Week #10 // 2016: XDB at Control Club, Bucharest

Highlights of the WeekMix of the Week

We started our week with the live recording of XDB’s set at Control Club in Bucharest. XDB is one of the djs that are in the game for ages and still keep things hot always treating you with quality records and a superb vibe while playing a show. Atmospheric tracks that are guarded by some acid and dub bombs all the way. That might be a short description of this set, of course as usual XDB offers you powerful tracks that move your body and shows his unique way of arranging a club set. Old and forgotten gems and new releases or promos, Kosta always keeps you digging for the beauties he dropped. One of the most impressive things of his mixes for sure is the amount of widely unknown tracks from back in the days, but he also shows us his favourite tracks on Facebook with his regular postings of “Tracks i do really LOVE…” and he never disappoints musically. One of the best djs and producers for us. It seems like he is gifted on both ends with a very special attempt towards playing vinyl and creating his own productions.
