01. Sven Väth - My Name is Barbarella (Deep Dish Armageddon Breakdown Remix) [Club Culture | B035632-01]
Released: 2000 (exact date unknown) Written By: Ralf Hildenbeutel, Sven Väth

Ralf Hildenbeutel is musician, composer, producer and labelowner. Through his classical education in piano and composing at the age of nine he became quite early familiar with composers such as Debussy, Bach, Chopin and Satie.

In the 90's he produced the albums of Sven Väth on the legendary Eye-Q label, made an endless number of remixes for artists such as Anne Clark, Robert Palmer or Yello. 1997 was the time of new directions. With the production team "Schallbau" he became one of the most succesful producers in Germany with productions and co-writes for artists such as Laith Al-Deen (5 gold albums incl 4 top ten) and Yvonne Catterfield (4 gold/platinum albums).

During his stayings in London between '03 and '06 he succesful did production and co-writings for internatinal artists and projects. In the meantime he worked regularly on several scores (Mondscheintarif, Be.Angeled, Reine Formsache...). In 2008 he founded his own label "Rebecca & Nathan" . The platform where he can combine electronical and acoustic music as an artist or producer and where he develops artists such as Cargo City. Ralf Hildenbeutel has been awarded with the VIVA Comet as best producer and as well with the Goldmedal Award for score on the New York Film festivals.

02. Cevin Fisher feat. Sheila Smith - Love You Some More (Steve Lawler's Flight To Atlanta Mix) [Subversive | SUB68T]
Released: 2000 (exact date unknown) Written By: Kevin Fisher Vocals; Sheila Smith

Born in East Orange, New Jersey, Cevin Fisher is a respected & prolific master house producers who was inspired to start DJing by watching his heroes Tony Humphries, Larry Levan and Francois K. At 16 he picked up his first gigs at loft parties and college one-offs before finally getting his first regular break as a warm-up for Zanzibar resident Larry Paterson on Friday nights a year later.

After that Cevin went to work in the top recording studios in New York, sharpening his skills in production work for Timmy Regisford of Motown Records alongside future electro-Don & mainstream producer Arthur Baker at Shakedown Studios, where he delivered remixes for Chaka Khan's "Love You All My Lifetime" and Quincy Jones' "I'll Be Good To You", both of which subsequently went to number one on the US Billboard Dance Chart.

From 1993 to 1995 Cevin teamed up with Cliff St.-Cyr, one of originators of the NYC house scene. They created classic anthems like “House is a Feeling,” "Hands On Love," and “Sweet in the Morning” under several monikers and all released on the legendary Hardtrax label. Seeing how huge these tracks were, Strictly Rhythm was quickly on the case, licensing and re-releasing all three to bring them to the widest audience possible. Cevin also worked with several other collaborators for tracks on Hardtrax, Nervous and other noted labels.

“During the summer of 1995, I bumped into Danny Tenaglia on 21st street. We talked for a while about our productions and I told him how I didn’t feel I was reaching my full potential. It was a heavy conversation. Danny said ‘Go out on your own, you can make it on your own!’ and sent me on my way. I got in my car and I was heading home through the midtown tunnel and saw a billboard that said ‘Find Your Own Road’ – that really hit me… and I went home inspired to create.”

That very night Cevin created "The Way We Used To" and “Check This Out” – the first tracks he released as Cevin Fisher – and the rest is history.

Cevin continued to release tracks on Maxi, Nervous, Ministry of Sound and Subversive. Cevin’s next breakout hit was “Women Beat their Men” which rocked every type of dance floor being played by everyone from Junior Vasquez to Juan Atkins to Louie Vega to Roger Sanchez. The world was now on notice that Cevin was going to be a major force for years to come.

Cevin also featured on Satoshi Tomiie's 1998 neo-progressive front runner 'Darkness' [INCredible | INCRL9]

“Music Saved My Life” came next… captivating and capturing the feelings of the dance music community. DJs across the world featured it in their record box – Sasha & Digweed, Carl Cox, David Morales, Sven Vath, Louie Vega, Danny Tenaglia and more. The track was unforgettable and Cevin was establishing himself as a consistent chart topper and hit maker. Meanwhile Cevin toured, DJing in the world’s top venues including Twilo in NYC, Ministry of Sound in London, Angel’s of Love in Italy, Groovejet Miami and on and on.

DJ Remy Bio

A unique blend of textures and waves of pure energy is what flows through your mind and body when listening to Remy. It is sheer pleasure. And for those who have not had the opportunity to hear his sound, you have certainly been missing half of your life. For a man with a calm and to some, even a shy demeanour, the power and respect he demands while he's behind the decks is total and consuming.

Born in The Hague, the Netherlands, Remy was bitten by the music bug in the summer of 1990. A dark murky club, lustrous lights, that thumping base, and a strange but curiously intoxicating fusion of high, medium, and low frequencies was all it took for Remy to make a sudden change of career, and a decision he has never regretted making since.

He bought his own DJ set after that summer. Eventually he gained residency at all Silly Symphonies events in Holland. The Amsterdam based club RoXY soon recognized his talent and introduced Remy to a larger crowd every Saturday night. Remy has since been found at John Digweed's Bedrock nights in London as well as those famous Twilo nights in New York aside from playing all over the world. He never ceases to amaze his fans and crowds with his impeccable choice of records and flawless, tight mixing. Receiving an award from the Dutch Awards as Best DJ consecutively for 2001 and 2002, proves exactly that.

"I like to play a variety of sounds from tech-house, to techno, To English progressive, to trance. For me, the most important aspect in a record as well as a DJ set is the flow of energy in the music. The real challenge is to play for a certain type of crowd, be it techno or progressive and have them enjoying another sound without realizing that style of music has changed."

Since the summer of 90', Remy's passion for music has only intensified. Since then, he has launched a slew of record labels such as WONKA, 'Global Cuts' together with Belgian DJ/producer Sven van Hees (with whom Remy also produced the classic “Piano Power” tune) AREA CODE 070 (the phone area code of Remy's residence The Hague), and of course TASTE RECORDINGS. Similarly, he has released a number of singles that have received international recognition. To name a couple, 'Mess With Da Bull' was featured on Sasha & Digweed's 'Northern Exposure Expeditions' compilation, and 'Backstabber' (DJ Remy) can be found on the Renaissance-CD by Dave Seaman. Recent releases of Remy include 'Pumped Up' (DJ Remy) and 'Spotlight' (RR Workshop).

In 2003, Remy released his first album BANG! including the massive club Tunes “Scrambled” and “Dustsucker”. In 2004, Remy released together with Roland Klinkenberg his several tracks like “Fearless” and “Till Ya Drop” on the Electronic Elements imprint from Armada Music. Not without success. “Till Ya Drop” became one of the biggest club records from 2004.

In 2005 Remy has performed all over the world at popular clubs/events like DanceValley, Extrema, Crobar/Spirit - New York, Fur – Washington, Ageha –Tokyo, Godskitchen, Turnmills, Guvernment – Toronto, Amnesia – Ibiza to mention a few. It’s also the year in which Remy collaborates with Armin van Buuren and Roland Klinkenberg. Together they produced “Bounce Back”, which can also be found on the Armin van Buuren album.

Now, in 2006, Remy will start his new and own 68 (Remy’s year of birth) Recordings together with Armada Music. The first release on the label with be by the man himself. A two track EP including the dark pounding techno tunes “Crackdown” and “Nasty Ho”. Second release is made together with his friend Roland Klinkenberg. 68 Recordings will reflect the sound from Remy which you can find in his DJ sets. Next to his own productions you will find Remy favourites on this imprint.
