Oliver Koletzki's "Der Mückenschwarm" is considered one of the techno classics which was the best sold techno record of 2005 and was the best ever selling record on Cocoon. And the very same year; the artist got voted as the best newcomer of the year in prestigious Groove magazine.
After the initial boom, Oliver Koletzki has actually changed his sound and it was somewhat softer. However, his new EP 'Iyewaye', Oliver Koletzki has shown himself in a new, but not altogether unfamiliar light: since his breakthrough in 2005 with 'Der Mückenschwarm' Koletzki hasn't sounded this hard.
The new EP contains a dark sound-aesthetic and raw energy. On the otherhand, the gloomy and driving framework of 'Iyewaye' is still lit up by a crystal-clear synth-sequence. Similarly, 'Ipuza', which hypnotizes by way of reduction and repetition, is funky in its core thanks to a rolling tribal groove. Functional, but with heart and soul.
