Humpty Times, out now on Beatport!
You gotta jump on this tune. There’s no denying the driving bass line that drags your body into the sound. Being the moving power, this solid “bass-plate” gets built up and down by bright highlights and jumping tunes. A little fatalistic roaring, some swirl here and there, yet every sound feels right where it should be. It is a playful but not at all naïve conglomerate of home made, easy going techno sounds, reminding you a little of back then, but first and foremost letting you groove right now! Easily, yet resolutely, you get carried away by the catchy beat that is pushing forward both tracks “Stata” and “Ticket” on the first RELAX 2000 release in 2015. A perfect restart to just relax and enjoy some fresh, real good techno tune!
A new school techno kid with roots back in old school. Having made his first moves in techno music with crappy cd players at home and a radio-taped set by Sven Väth in the early 2000s, Leif Müller stepped up to his first residency in his hometown club Rocker 33 in 2009. Together with his buddy Konstantin Sibold he continued his activities with the event series Common Sense People hosting club nights including artists such as DJ Koze, Roman Flügel and Efdemin. Subsequently in 2013 he started to release his own productions with a track on the Get Physical sub-label Poesie Musik and a joint track with Konstantin Sibold on the Cocoon Compilation N.
Being a young kid back in the late 90s, his early influences of 90s hip hop and some classic 80s pop from his dad still remain, as well as his passion for old school equipment with its rough sound and workflow. With these favorites, he creates a reduced yet tight and driving sound honoring the good old analog times.
No stereotypes. No sound restrictions. No name dropping. Just relax!
The techno label RELAX 2000 is a conglomerate of passionate techno music that does not want to define itself. Every track justifies itself by its stunning sound that catches you no matter what. It’s all about real, good techno tunes. And this is what it is. That’s all we need. Just Relax 2000.
