Gregor Tresher and Cocoon are linked by a long-
time relationship which starts all the way back in
2004, when Sven Vath played Gregor's productions
in heavy rotation. "Neon", "Full Range Madness",
"The Now People" or "Still", just to name a few, can
be considered as Techno classics of the Noughties.
Almost ten years later, Gregor has established his
position and is one of Germany's top notch techno
producers. With "About A Good Place", he delivers
his long overdue EP debut for Cocoon Recordings.
He plays his favourite game straight to the point,
with massive analogue synth lines, fat kick drums
and hi hats that force you to move: This is
adrenaline for the big floors on this planet, those
with the real fat PAs!
The title tune "About A Good Place" is one of Sven's
secret weapons in his recent sets and breathes
Tresher-air XXL! It's all about that crazy, detuned
synth line that grows bigger and bigger and results
in pure harmony at the great breakdown in the
middle of the track. The massive kick drum adds
what you need to let the sun shine and wave your
hands up in the air!
"Lifecycles" follows that vibe, but digs a bit deeper
and adds more sensitivity to Tresher's Techno
formula, with all the elements that we already know
from "About A Good Place". Crazy arpeggio lines,
filter moves and the mandatory dark bass line:
hypnotic techno with no chance to escape!
Last but not least, there is "The Sun Sequencer" -
the dignified answer to the preliminary techno
bangers. More relaxed, with slight touches of House
and Trance, "The Sun Sequencer" should be the
right choice for fans of Chymera and Slam. Imagine
the rising sun at an open air festival site or use this
as your first tune for the next after hour - this is the
sound of the summer of 2012.
