Renaissance are proud to announce that Tiefschwarz have stepped up to compile the latest instalment of their 'The Mix Collection' series. With a DJ and production career spanning over 16 years, releases on Cocoon, Wave Music, Souvenir and remix work as far ranging as Depeche Mode, Roxy Music, Booka Shade, Madonna and Plastikman it seemed a perfect fit to bring their wide set of influences together for a set of two mixes.
"We love doing compilations because it's a great opportunity and challenge for us to dig deep in the huge ocean of music, using your own personal filter and taste to find the music we love. For this Renaissance Mix Collection it was even better because we got the chance to do two mixes and really explore our sound. Obviously there is a lot of crap music out there, but more importantly there are also tons of beautiful, inspiring tracks and it's a real pleasure to go through our collection and find the right ones. Musically this time we wanted to stay in the here and now - the slower and deeper mix on CD1 is an atmospheric journey - melodies, vocals and more abstract tracks help to create the vibe. The second mix is more club orientated – it's a hybrid between house and techno and shows a bit of what we love to play as DJs these days. Love Ali + Basti" – Tiefschwarz. Berlin, May 2013
