Michael Kortenhaus – Am Rand Der Stille [Soundteller Records]

6 min read

After a rare week off, Deersky's Soundteller Records welcomes Michael Kortenhaus to the label for his debut single. Based in München, the German artist first appeared earlier this year with a string of projects for Bynomic's Another Life Music, where he released his debut album in March. His blend of dub techno, progressive house and melodic house & techno quickly found it's way to Soundteller affiliate 'Provider Music', who released Michael's 'Closer' EP in July. Now stepping up to parent label Soundteller, Michael presents his 'Am Rand Der Stille' single, alongside remixes from Dysco and Ric Niels.

The original leads the release off and encompasses much of Michael's unique blend of styles. From a hazy dub techno style backdrop comes some progressive flavoured musicality. Icy pads marry perfectly with glowing swells across the first act, as charming vocal fragments and cascading tones carry the narrative into a well constructed break. Emotive chord changes and processed piano's make for a gorgeous second act, eventually setting up a smooth bridge into a groovy finale.

Returning to the label and providing the first interpretation is Dysco. The American artist first appeared on the Polish imprint with a contribution to the label's popular 'Vibrant Vibeland' series in July of last year. Written in conjunction with Juan Ibanez, 'Euphoric Seas' was the highlight of the release and was favoured by a wide number of progressive DJs for it's peak time energy. Also finding a home on Balkan Connection, Droid9 and SLC-6 Music, Dysco now returns to Soundteller with a smooth rendition of 'Am Rand Der Stille'. The overall vibe of the original is well maintained with the vocals and drone-like soundscapes getting utilized beautifully. Taking centrestage is a bubbly sounding arp which runs through the entire first act, before getting washed away in favour of captivating effects during the main break, and eventually reappearing as the beats drop for a spirited final act.

The release concludes with Ric Niels returning to the label and providing the second and final interpretation of 'Am Rand Der Stille'. Although his first release was just 18 months ago, the Argentinean artist has already built an impressive resume with releases via 3rd Avenue, Balkan Connection, Clubsonica and Movement Recordings, while earning the support of Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren and Guy J. Now making his fourth appearance on Soundteller, Ric turns in a classy remix of 'Am Rand Der Stille'. Known for his sleek, driving style, the Argentinean artist opts for a dubbier approach here, using the vocals both sparsely and indistinctly. Arpeggiated fragments and emotive swells highlight the journey, coming to a gentle apex during the main break and ushering in a finale of harmonic overlays. Gorgeous stuff from Ric, which rounds out an excellent Soundteller debut for Michael Kortenhaus. Don't miss it.
