Wolfgang Haffner – Melodia del Viento (Ricardo Villalobos & Max Loderbauer Remix)

Minimal producer Ricardo Villalobos and frequent collaborator Max Loderbauer have extended Wolfgang Haffner‘s "Melodia del Viento" into an 18-minute excursion through techno abstraction. The remix will appear on Haffner’s Remixed EP for Rockets & Ponies—which also includes reworks by Timo Maas and Nightmares on Wax, among others. The 12" version of Haffner’s Remixed EP is out now, while the record will see a full digital release on May 5.

Video: Timo Maas – Tantra

We’ve already posted ‘Tantra’, the new single from German polymath, Timo Maas, taken from his latest artist album, ‘Lifer’. Below, you can watch the official video. The machinery that forms the art installation at the centre of the piece was designed, built, operated and then filmed by a group of Japanese artists and creatives, including Daito Manabe. Motoi Ishibashi, Muryo Homma and Youichi Sakamoto. They spent weeks researching and testing materials before building the final installation from Arduino controlled ball dispensers, motorised rotating steel plates and LED lights for filming.

Timo Maas – Tantra

‘Tantra’ is the new single from German polymath, Timo Maas. Taken from his latest artist album, ‘Lifer’, the track is the latest release during a vintage year for the acclaimed German DJ and producer. As expected with any Rockets & Ponies release, the label has assembled a crack squad of remixers including Tom Demac (who’s about to drop a forthcoming collaboration with Will Samson on Aus), James Teej (the My Favourite Robot boss returns the favour for Timo’s reworking of ‘Liking Your Disorder’), Atelier Francesco (a new project and accompanying pseudonym from an already eclectic Italian producer) and Wolfgang Haffner (the ECHO music award-winning German drummer famous for his work with Nightmares On Wax and beyond).

The next remix EP from ‘Lifer’comes complete with remixes from The Martinez Brothers, Maetrik (Maceo Plex), Addison Groove, Fur Coat, Livio & Roby, and Luca Lozano, and is due in December.
