Sven Väth’s Cocoon Recordings Celebrates 20 Year Anniversary With New Compilation.

With two decades of history in the techno scene, Sven Väth’s iconic label Cocoon Recordings celebrates a well-deserved anniversary with the unveiling of a new compilation 20 Years: Cocoon Recordings. Having hosted the biggest names in techno, the label now showcases the artists and sounds that have brought Cocoon Recordings to its current status. Artists like Adam Beyer, Guy J, Loco Dice, Solomun all had their hand in marking their signature sounds on the label and cementing it as one of the leading techno labels in the world.

The 15-track selection, features contributions from the likes of Tiga, Rampa, Pig&Dan, Gregor Tresher, and several more, all of whom bring potent slices of the techno stratosphere in their appearances. The assortment journeys through pounding drums, jittery synthwork, wobbly sound design, and glitched landscapes—diving into the acidic, the astral, and melodic planes. From the uncanny machinations evident in Tiga and Roman Flügel‘s “Look To The Sky,” to the emotive intuitions behind Petar Dundov‘s “Overtone,” ravey textures in Rampa’s “2000,” and organic sonics in Richard Tobar’s “El Eterna,” 20 Years: Cocoon Recordings represents a consolidated spectrum of techno in its most beloved forms through the context of Sven Väth’s imprint.

Out now via Beatport and all popular streaming platforms, get your first listen to 20 Years: Cocoon Recordings below!

    • Armin van Buuren and HI-LO collab on ‘Now Love Will Begin’ armin-van-buuren-hilo-feature-oz-edm

      Trance icon Armin van Buuren and techno virtuoso HI-LO join forces on one of 2024’s most exciting collaborationss. Introducing ‘Now Love Will Begin,’ the genre-bending collaboration between trance icon Armin van Buuren and techno virtuoso HI-LO. Premiered on “A State of Trance” and a standout track included in Armin van Buuren and HI-LO’s much-talked-about B2B set at A State of Trance Rotterdam,  ’Now Love Will Begin’ is a groundbreaking fusion of techno’s pulsating rhythms and trance’s euphoric melodies. The song takes listeners on an exhilarating journey through the realms of both genres, igniting dance floors and hearts alike. “HI-LO (Oliver Heldens) and I just click so well. It was apparent during our back-to-back live set at A State of Trance in Rotterdam, and many others were able to see it as well when we connected on stage again in Miami during the Ultra Music Festival. I’m so happy that this natural flow between us extends to our studio work as well. We’re both so passionate about dance music, and I’m having such a great time being producer-nerdy in the studio with him. ‘Now Love Will Begin’ is what came out of it, and I’m so excited for the world to hear what we cooked up together!,” Van Buuren says. “In the last half a year, it’s been awesome working with Armin on several collabs and preparing for our b2b sets. Probably the highlight so far was when all of that came together during our b2b at A State of Trance Rotterdam, and even though the b2b set at A State of Trance Miami didn’t happen in the end due to severe weather conditions, we still had a lot of fun preparing for that set, and in general, it’s been lovely to connect on a deeper level. Our first collab, ‘Now Love Will Begin,’ definitely captures that spirit; I think it’s a meaningful banger of a tune that crosses boundaries, uniting the worlds of techno, uplifting trance, and psy-trance. Enjoy! :),” HI-LO adds. Get ready to experience the ultimate union of techno and trance, where love and music intertwine to create pure sonic ecstasy.
