To those who don’t know Sven Vath he is an ex pop star in Germany, owner of club/label Cocoon and one of the first in the breed of rock star Djs. Illegality he has to have a new liver put in after every season in Ibiza!!
OK so I’ve seen Sven 3 or 4 times in the last year and a half and was never quite feeling it. I think the scene is truly dead, but there are a few tunes that NEED to be resurrected! If you are in any doubt, dig out The Sound Of The Sixth Season mix CD again. This captures the combination of wonky mixing and key clashes, “any track goes attitude”, made the live experience in Amnesia so unique at the time. In 2006 I remember him smashing Boys Noize- War completely introducing a new sound to everyone, (we all looked at each other thought the sound system was broke) then mixing in The knights of Jaguar. Sven dangling into the crowd bizzing of his face (see my pic), mixing with his feet and his chin on occasions…who cared!!
Here is a tune that sums up the scene!
