Wenn man,so wie ich,auf der diesjährigen "G&B" war,und Paul Ritch LIVE erleben durfte,der wird ja eh wissen,was ihn bei'm Kauf dieser CD erwartet....
Vielleicht bin ich ja da ein wenig voreingenommen,da mich das Live-Set an diesem Tag auch total mitgerissen hatte,wenn nicht sogar mein persönlicher Höhepunkt war!
Wer sich vor dem Kauf eine kleine Kostprobe "geben" möchte oder muß,der sei auf ein weltbekanntes Video-Portal verwiesen,in dem ein ca. 9 minütiger Zusammenschnitt dieser CD angeboten wird...
Kurz und schmerzlos:
Wer auf elektronische Musik (die "nach vorne" geht und richtig schön pumpt) steht,der wird hier mit Sicherheit nichts verkehrt machen!!
JA,ICH BIN BEGEISTERT VON DIESEN 9 TRACKS !!!!!!

Unfortunately, Cocoon's/Sven Väth's annual, extremely atmospheric and spiritual Green & Blue festival close to Frankfurt am Main had to come to an end in 2012. Let's see, what Cocoon possibly also "being at the mercy" of a maybe upcoming German right utilisation organisation's 2013 reform like, if so in the end, all event organisers and club operators in Germany will invent next. However, I (honestly not belonging to the Cocoon enterprises) trust in Cocoon and, for me, Cocoon has always been and will always be a promising and reliable, true underground techno music brand of perfect musical taste and capability of anticipation led by Sven Väth. This deal is flying. In parallel, all Green & Blue festival compilations have to be considered as true masterpieces of underground techno & house. So has this probably final edition, a live recording of Paul Ritch's live act. All tracks were mixed together as an arc of live experienced suspense, are very deep and detailed and manage to create a very groovy and bass-driven kind of high-energy flow, as an overall mix and track by track. This is more about groovy peak-time techno than groovy house or minimal, although everyone should be aware house and techno (and electro) belong together as a soulful and passionate family of electronic dance music and shall never be separated from each other. And this techno focus is why this CD or MP3 mix differs a little bit from the former editions of the Green & Blue festival compilation series. Beyond, Paul Ritch is an excellent producer and ... live act - not to be missed. So, here comes the euphoric, ecstatic, final climax and punch line of Cocoon's Green & Blue. All lovers of EDM should have this. That's a strong recommendation. And it should be listened to as a mix, that is, from the very beginning to the end (poor poor disregarded skip button). Further current, highly recommendable full-length releases: "BERGHAIN 06" (mixed by Norman Nodge, on Ostgut Ton), "SVEN VÄTH IN THE MIX: THE SOUND OF THE 13TH SEASON" (mixed by Sven Väth, on Cocoon Recordings), "WATERGATE X" (on Watergate Records), "FABRIC 66" (mixed by Ben Klock, on Fabric), "FABRIC 65" (mixed by Matthias Tanzmann, on Fabric), "FABRIC 64" (mixed and produced by Guy Gerber, on Fabric), "BEDROCK 14" (compiled by John Digweed, on Bedrock), "BRETT" (produced by Niereich and Andreas Kraemer, on Construct Rhythm (? - i'm not really sure about the label)), "ARCHEOLOGY EXC.3" (mixed by Tony Rohr, on Cari Lekebusch's label H-PRODUCTIONS), "15 YEARS OF DRUMCODE" (15th-anniversary compilation of Adam Beyer's label DRUMCODE), "LIVE ON CUBISM" (by Saytek, on Cubism), "CONFIDENCE" (by Daniel Stefanik, on Cocoon Recordings), "WORKS" (by D.Diggler, on Resopal Schallware), "GIGOLO MUSIC LTD 13 PRESENTED BY DJ HELL" (compiled by Dj Hell, on International Deejay Gigolo), "DEFECTED PRESENTS MOST RATED IBIZA 2012" (double-mix compilation on Defected), "SPACE IBIZA - OFFICIAL 2012 EDITION" (on cr2), "COCOON HEROES (MIXED BY JORIS VOORN & CASSY)" (on Cocoon Recordings), "FLASH SUNRAYS" (on Flash), ... and there would be many others one could mention. Enjoy Paul Ritch's Green & Blue live recording!
