I, the ninth letter in the Latin alphabet, is statistically the third most used sign in the German language. Even more interesting is the echo of the I in the English language, as there is no other linguistic possibility to define the first person singular that simple and concisely. Therefore, I means also me, the sound-wise definition of the subversive aesthetics of Cocoon Recordings, of inspired electronic dance music of modern spirit and of the dignified follw-up of one of the most successful series of compilations within the context of House and Techno, whereas this edition's focus on House is significantly. That's why I begins with a personal debut: the Berlin-based producer and outstanding DJ Tobi Neumann, an important part of the Cocoon family already for years, has recently been more active in the background, as producer and remixer for 2Raumwohnung or Chicks on Speed, for instance. With the first release under the name eMT, Tobi and his partner Matthew Styles are enchanting the dancefloor with a warm and organic sound, peeling the summer out of its garment and "Extra Lunch" seems like a reflection on a clear water surface, thanks to small vocal snippets and permanent strings. A great start, especially because the Dutchman Laurens Lanting aka Lauhaus stays exactly on this track with his percussive and Detroit-dubby-style "Back To Ipanema". And being already in Holland: Jeroen Verheij aka Secret Cinema is already a constant on Music Man Records since the beginning of the Nineties and may be also known to some under the name Meng Syndicate. His contribution "Kurzweil" may be the most ingenious track that has been made in the field of highly harmonic House with piano and strings over the last few years. Hands-in-the-air guarantee included! After this emotional furioso, Detroit's M_nus ambassador Gaiser takes the path of deepness in reduction with his hypnotic Triphouse in "Am I". And this is not the only surprise on I: Matthew Edwards' aka Radio Slave's highly anticipated first track for Cocoon is a glorious Wild Pitch revival with constant layers of sound, a pumping bass kick and an organ, that would even make DJ Pierre proud of. And after his tribal endorphine hymn "Subtellite" from last year, Timo Maas lets you totally lose yourself for eleven minutes in his spacy alarm siren disco funk. Of course, also the tracks by Chymera, Johnny D, Green & Todd or Kabuto & Koji would require a few words. Have you ever been more surprised by a totally un-kitschy saxophone, such as in "Night", the techno-jazz piece made by Canadian Guillaume & The Coutu Dumont? And shouldn't have the xylophone much more often the last word, just like in the melancholy "Dead Room" finale by Hamburg-based Kollektiv Turmstraße? The answers (not only) to this questions can be found in more than 104 (!!!) minutes of amazement, dancing and getting lost within yourself.
