The soul behind the new Watergate Compilation belongs to a dedicated DJ and house-enthusiast: Mathias Kaden attends to number 14 of the popular mix-series and gives proof not only of his technical finesse but also of his ability to combine contemporary releases with evergreen classics.
He is always confident to his intuition and emotions to freak out any crowd, no matter what time or location he plays. All the same with his own productions: He released his debut-album Studio 10 on the Berlin based Label Vakant in 2009, alongside EPs on Freude Am Tanzen and recently also Desolat.
That Kaden has a lot of love to spread is also being reflected in the compilation’s dreamy prelude for which he elected one of this summer’s ear-catcher: DJ Koze’s and Apparat’s Nices Wölkchen. After some minutes a relentless old-school-vibe is sneaking in, which finds his early peak in Ron Tren’s Kids At Play. Between two exclusive tracks from Rodriguez Jr. and Marco Resmann, Kaden proves that there must be a rhythm-machine beating behind his chest. In the middle the mix rattles with Alejandro Paz’s El House against its proper destination: House music without compromises.
The last third develops an endearing atmosphere, to which the Watergate label contributes two more exclusive tracks. Mathias Kaden’s personal farewell is named Fin, but before he keeps silent Daniel Stefanik with Distillery speaks the closing remarks in an exclusive edit for this CD. With this Watergate- Compilation Kaden has succeeded an energetic and elegant mix with repeat-potential.
