Zur ersten Frühlingssonne kommt die neue DOTS & PEARLS-Serie! Die Nummer drei - die ersten beiden waren auf Vinyl - kommt von Cocoons Daniel Stefanik, der zur Label-Rückschau auch vier eigene Cocoon-Recordings-Edits beisteuert.nnCocoon Recordings präsentiert passend zur ersten Frühlingssonne die neue DOTS & PEARLS Compilation die als MixCD veröffentlicht wird. Die Nummer drei der erfolgreichen Various Artists Reihe kommt von Cocoon-Recordings- und Flash-Booking-Artist Daniel Stefanik, der zur Label-Rückschau des letzten Jahres auch vier eigene Cocoon-Recordings-Edits sowie drei neue unveröffentlichte Tracks verwendet hat. Diese werden auf der Katalognummer COR12138 (Vinyl/Digital) zeitgleich zur Mix-CD veröffentlicht. Vor allem die vier Edits haben es in sich und faszinieren uns hier ganz besonders. Schon zum Start der Mix-CD präsentiert Stefanik einen Tech-House-Mini-Mix basierend aus Guido Schneiders & André Galluzzis Mario im ToFu Productions DubDub (Thomas Melchior & Fumiya Tanaka) und Tim Greens Eclipse. An Position Nummer zwei folgt dann auch schon gleich der erste von drei exklusiven und bisher unveröffentlichen Tracks. Music On My Mind von Subb-an schließt nahtlos und perfekt an Stefaniks Edit an. Der aus Birmingham stammende Produzent Subb-an blickt auf eine eindrucksvolle Liste an Releases zurück mit Veröffentlichungen auf nahmhaften Labels wie Crosstown Rebels, 20:20 Vision oder One Records. 2012 wurde Subb-an sogar die Ehre zu Teil Lana Del Ray zu remixen. Mit Music On My Mind bewegt er sich in eher deeperen Tech-House-Gefilden. Viel Bass, ein schiebender Groove und hypnotische Vocals erzeugen dennoch einen angenehmen Schub, nach vorne.
