Yan Stricker - It Was In 1991 (+ Heron Remix)

by Yan Stricker, Heron

It Was 07:14
In 1991 06:43


Yan Stricker returns on his superb !Organism label with a brand new EP featuring two new cuts of pulsing minimal techno and an epic remix from the excellent Heron.

Yan Stricker’s !Organism imprint has gone from strength to strength since it’s launch in 2008, releasing records from some of Switzerland’s hottest producers as well as key international talent. At the heart of the label’s success has been Stricker himself, a DJ/Producer/Promoter who has distilled his years in the music scene into a string of outstanding singles for !Organism. His previous releases have seen the label’s profile skyrocket and have garnered support from the likes of Adam Beyer,The Advent, Christian Smith, Joel Mull etc.

For his latest single Stricker offers up the excellent ‘It Was in 1991’. The EP opens with ‘It Was’, an emotive and driving slice of stripped minimal techno that uses pads, stabs and white noise sweeps over a sparse rhythm track to create a heads down, locked in groove.

The second of the two original recordings comes in the form of ‘In 1991’, a glitchy, minimal workout that offsets it’s darker elements with some great hypnotic melodies. The track gives a definite nod to the retro sounds of the 90’s dance music whilst retaining a fresh production sound.

Finally German DJ/Producer Heron takes time out from his busy touring and production schedule to remix ‘In 1991’ delivering his ‘Lost in the 90’s rework’. Heron’s mix takes the original parts and twists them into rolling techno opus that builds and builds for over ten minutes, quality stuff.

This is yet another solid release from Yan Stricker and his !Organism label and further cements the reputation of both.
