feeder sound exclusive premiere: CVO – Misfits [ost end musik]
“Housekopplung eins” is the first pure house compilation EP from the Leipzig-based label ost end musik [ɔstˈɛnd muˈsɪk] and features four tracks signed by DJ Hammersmith, ROSA, Dubschmiftz and CVO. ost end is a collective and underground club that was formed before the coronavirus situation and since the pandemic they have been moving more and more towards label work, thus connecting great artists from the house and techno scene of East Germany.
Let’s have a taste of the album and get the body moving with “Misfits”, the first original release from CVO, an alter ego of Casimir von Oettingen, a talented DJ and producer from Halle Saale who lives in Berlin for 8 years. He’s a resident at Station Endlos, Jonny Knüppel Club, the “Bordel des Arts” event at Salon Zur Wilden Renate and the “Tryland” party at Watergate. Casimir is also a co-founder of the label Bladehouse while some of his productions have been published by imprints like As Usual Music, Lauter, Pour La Vie, Bar 25 and Submarine Vibes.
The swinging aura of “Misfits” sure delivers a highly enjoyable ride into the realms of deep and funky microhouse, with subtle tech-house flavours elegantly placed in the percussive patterns and the wobbling bassline. The airy arrangement allows the warm background pads to smoothly evolve into organic and joyous variations, while the driving rhythm remains inviting throughout. Time to get groovy!
The other tracks are equally pleasing, starting with the introspective and dreamy ambient/dub/breaks sounds of “Digital Bird” by DJ Hammersmith, then switching gears into the 4/4 realm with the exotic steady-paced narrative of “Monza” by ROSA. Following, Dubschmiftz drops a cryptic pumping tech rhythm with “Axtre Rendet”, taking the listener into abstract dimensions, which elegantly complements CVO’s closing piece. A very nice mixture of genres and grooves right here!
Grab your copy of “Housekopplung eins EP” from Bandcamp.
