We at Dieb Audio often pride ourselves on putting together top class, star studded packages and this, our latest from Mexican production outfit Royal Dance alongside studio partner Leo Leal, is no exception. In fact, we've considerably upped the ante and made it a fully international affair roping in a Brit and a Finn based in Berlin and an Armenian with Turkish roots currently subsiding in Canada to reinterpret the Central Americans' work. In simpler terms (and for those with less interest in the heritage and geographical whereabouts of our producers and remixers) we have King Roc, Sasse and Arthur Oskan contributing their inimitable studio expertise on our latest and greatest... There is a wide variety of mixes on offer here, sure to find favor with a diverse spectrum of listener and/or DJ-from the dense, intricate melodic excursions of the original, to the stripped down, atmospheric and haunting Sasse mix and from the Detroit-esque deep techiness of Arthur Oskan through to King Roc's new school tribal-tech workout!

Another lovingly and meticulously crafted Dieb Audio record-we hope you enjoy!

We are proud to present another of our "homegrown" releases, this time from label honcho and studio rat extraordinaire, John Dalagelis. Not content with being one of the main creative forces and brains behind the Dieb "opearation", John has found time to drop an absolute bomb of debut on the label here with an intricate, intelligent and very funky piece of modern electronic house that is sure to cause commotion on many a dancefloor, for wide variety of DJ.

In true Dieb fashion, we've gone all out on our selection of remixers once again, and first up is the inimitable Nacho Marco who brings his impeccable and renowned production skills on board to create an awesome deep house interpretation by layering the original chord stabs over an infectious bass groove.

Next up we've drafted in another of our German buddies, Harald Aufmuth, whom most will know as the always on form minimal/tech house hero Harada. His reputation for high quality studio productions (both original and remixed) has been well documented on a variety of many of the industry's top labels and they have been heavily supported by the world's top DJ's. In this instance, he creates a repetitive and hooky groove around the chord pattern, while engineering one of his signature, sparse-yet-functional rhythm arrangements.

Last, but not least by any stretch of the imagination, we have delivered a knockout of sorts, and polished off this release with a stunning, slightly more peaktime mix courtesy of legendary house hero, Ananda project. Having produced and remixed classic records, and having conquered underground dancefloors to mainstream airwaves Chris Brann (as he's less commonly known), joins the Dieb fold with a top notch house workout of the highest order.

A top quality package all in all, if we do say so ourselves. We are extremely lucky and happy to have attracted such a wide variety of talent to work on this release and hope you enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed crafting it.

Our first release for the new year comes from none other than producer extraordinaire and label regular, Florian Kruse. Picking up the deep and tech-y vibe where his (occasional) studio partner Nils nurnberg left off, we are proud to present this double A-side EP comprised of "Thrill" and "The Miracle".Both of these productions bear all the characteristic attention to melody and groove that Florian is quickly becoming known for while also keeping one eye firmly fixed on simple and effective dancefloor functionality!

First up on remix duties, Dave DK turns out a solid and inventive re-work of "The Miracle", utilizing the original's chords and stabs and working them into another of his signature productions. Already receiving some serious attention from a variety of DJ's this is sure to appeal to those who value true, deep and timeless electronic house music.

Completing the package in fine (German) style, we've pulled out all the stops and drafted Florian's older brother Vincenzo and his acclaimed studio partner Elmar Schubert for remix duties on "Thrill". Arguably one of the most beautiful and emotion-evoking productions in our catalogue, the guys have crafted a sparse yet sophisticated re-interpretation that is sure to cause a stir on many a soundsystem (and quite a few dancefloors) over the coming months!

So there you have it, Florian's first solo outing on the label and what a start it is!! With a little help from his friends (and family) Florian and we at Dieb are proud to present a truly original and fresh collection of productions and offer a small insight into what we have in store for you in 2009!

Hot on the heels of some serious chart topping action, blistering remix work and increasingly busy DJ commitments, Nils returns to the Dieb fold with his first solo outing on the label-and what a start it is!!! We decided to sign this seconds after receiving the demo and it has since gone on to earn some serious attention and support by many top DJ's and producers. The remix package is quite special too (if we do say so ourselves!), as we've drawn in some top talent to produce 2 different, fresh perspectives of an already excellent original!
Nils' original is a chugging, functional piece of deep, underground house music that is sure to work wonders on many a dancefloor the world over. With its bouncy, shuffling bass and cool, FX-ladden atmospherics, "Seduction" is a record that encompasses all the hallmarks of a great, contemporary house record: recognizable, innovative, subtle, with emphasis on the groove and capable or moving the dancefloor.
True to the Dieb format so far, we have called upon our good friend Patch Park, with a more upbeat, peak time interpretation suitable for those larger, more demanding dancefloor situations! With his usual finesse and undisputed production skills he's quickly becoming known for, he has created a monster of a mix-effectively utilizing many of the original parts and blending them with his signature fusion of high octane techno and tech house.

Completing the package in fine style, Darko Esser, with his "Temptress Remix”, takes us on a trippy, deep house excursion. Despite a minimal, stripped back approach to his arrangement, he uses the original's key hooks and elements to create his own arrangement and references while adding some seriously catchy and effective chordal harmonies that add an undeniable depth and emotion! Complete with staccato snare shots and swingy, big hi-hat rhythms, this remix is perfect for househeads and those looking for a deeper, more emotive interpretation.

The fourth installment in Dieb Audio's release catalogue comes from label boss Stel. "Godthab" finds him blending rasping, funky acid lines with a haunting, heavily effected ethnic instrument all of which rest atop a tough, percussive rhythm section. Retaining all the production hallmarks and quality that characterize Stel's productions, this monster is sure to appeal to a wide variety of listeners and certainly those looking for fresh, underground, electronic music of the highest order.

First on the remix front we are proud to have the fresh new production duo of (Florian) Kruse & (Nils) Nürnberg. The boys from Hamburg have been quite prolific in the past few months with key releases and productions on labels such as OM, 8bit and Liebe Detail and here they bring their intelligent brand of deep tech-house to the Dieb family for the first time. Taking a different route to the other mixes on offer, they have created a very classy and sublime house interpretation that fuses funky chord stabs, tribal percussion and a firm focus on melody! Highly recommended for those with more deep and housey preferences!

Next up, we have drafted in the mighty Umek who ups the ante considerably and delivers an energetic, intelligent rework aimed straight at the dance floor. Retaining the original's key elements he structures and arranges his mix by building up the tension and anticipation which is eventually released by one of this year’s (soon to be) most memorable breakdown drops! As can be expected, the production here is flawless and Umek crafts a suspenseful and powerful mix that is destined to ignite many a dance floor the world over!

Last but definitely not least, Kriece rounds off the package with a characteristically funk-infused, swinging version which concentrates on the rhythmic potential of the original. Utilizing the acid lines and stabs of the original and layering them over his stomping rhythm section, his mix struts and swaggers in all the right ways while sucking the listener right into its infectious groove. As a producer Kriece needs almost no introduction, so with this mix one is guaranteed a versatile, expertly produced and functional interpretation of the original!
