Timo Benz and Plan-E deliver the first release on Strøm Recordings with the ultraphat ‘Darkstar Empire ep’. The German duo have teamed up to produce three powerful techno tracks which puts techno music back to where it all began…dark and underground…. ‘Flash (Timo Benz mix)’ is a peaktime monster track that hits the floor with fierce drums and grinding sub basses and combines spooky Detroit fx with a dark spoken vocal. An absolute burner! ‘Darkstar Empire’ has a slamming groove that keeps on building and jacks you with a razor sharp rhythm and a phat pumpin’ sound. ‘Revolution’ is just what it says, thundering beats with fat percussive synth stabs and the ability to take control of your sound system.

With the second Strøm release entitled “$.e.x.” the label profiles itself as one that’s not shy of stirring up some controversy. James Nidecker’s freaky dark vocals combined with an infectious groove of minimal-tech beats makes this record the proper ‘love song’ to end 2008, or maybe it’s just a tribute to a city which everyone knows for it’s red light district and free spirit of sex, drugs and rock n roll.

Release by Koen Lebens with a hypnotizing remix by Fokko Versloot, Sander May and Tom Noah.


REVIEW IN IDJ MAGAZINE by Kai 1(summer 2008 – July/August)
The original version of ‘Napolitanzer’ from Koen Lebens is a wickedly driving, tough tech-houser with a pounding kick, rolling bass and plenty of changes with the rides and fills to keep us hooked. Foko Versloot, Sander May and Tom Noah all undoubtedly get in each other way in the studio, yet manage to combine with a remix in more of a minimal techno direction, creating a nice pulsating kick that easily does the business while slowly introducing elements from the original to keep things smoothly moving forwards. K1 ***

Pumpend, treibend, reduziert ? mehr Worte braucht es nicht, um das dritte Release des Amsterdamer Imprints Strøm Recordings zu beschreiben, das ab August auf den Plattentellern der Welt rotieren wird und schon vorher von Szenegrössen wie Adam Beyer, Chloe und Valentino Kanzyani supportet wurde. Zu Recht, denn hier vereint sich Minimalismus mit partiell ravigen Clubtechnostabs und der Breakdown des Originalmixes sorgt sicherlich für erhobene Hände auf dem Dancefloor. Der flipseitige Remix hingegen ? eine Zusammenarbeit der Produzenten Fokko Versloot, Sander May und Tom Noah ? präsentiert sich ein wenig düsterer und hypnotisch verspult, verkündet seinen Tanzbefehl jedoch ebenso deutlich wie das Orginal. ***** 5 Points (of 6) baze.djunkiii

Yes indeed we have a special buzz package this time with Love Girls’s peak time monster release! And for this edition we have man of the moment Tobias Lützenkirchen doing a double remix knock out that’s kicking some serious ass too.

Hailing from the Netherlands, this mysterious duo is releasing records on labels such as Little Mountain Recordings, Vandit, Pacha and Strøm recordings. They are known for their major club hit ‘Chicks On Planes’ and remarkable remixes of tracks like David Keno’s Replika, Alex M.O.R.P.H’s Photograph and LeRon & Yves Eaux’ Almighty Funk and it looks like ‘Love Girls’ is the next best thing from Amsterdam. Artists like Sander Kleinenberg, Remy, Tiesto, Matthew Dekay and Paul van Dyk are just a few names who give massive support to their tracks. Only question remains…who are these ‘Love Girls’?

We’re not always sure how we should describe the label’s musical profile but we do know that this release has Techno written all over it.

Gabriel (Buenos Aires) delivers a very strong and slamming two tracker which actually killed one of the speakers at our office when we tested the masters.

So here you have it. We’ll say it’s techno cuz it shakes and pops and grinds like an animal, but we think it suits minimal and tech-house lovers as well.

The Italians do it again and Alex Bizzaro and Alberto Tinello (aka A.Tee) have teamed up to release a deeper minimal-house track that is sweeping and bashing with a sexy vocal stab and hard hitting snares blasting through your system.

And the remixes are amazingly done by Sebastian Sleebos, Marten Fisher and Roderick Fox and should please house and deep tech lovers as well.

Summer’s here and we bring you a tasty festival package with a variety of Strom artists on one release.

The title of this release is also the name of a new radio show that I will host on starting in June so keep an eye out for that one.

Carsten Schorr kicks it off with The screw which literally screws in your brain followed by South American duo Jaramillo & Bastien who deliver a strong main room filler. And last but not least we have Kindimmer who kicks out a solid deep minimal groove that keeps on spinning…..and spinning….and spinning…and we just can’t get enough of it :-)

All artists will have their full release later this summer so if you like this appetiser then be sure to check out their full release too.

Are we techno, tech-house, minimal or just a strange buzzing House label? We don’t know and actually..we really don’t care. :-)
Electronic music is crossing styles and genres everywhere and we think it’s good to have less labels on music especially with producers like Jules und Jazper who cross genres so easily and with good succes too.
So another summer tribal-tech-minimalistic-house release of which Sunet de Marimba did work very well on the dance floor at Sensation White in Amsterdam recently and hopefully works for you too.
Italian duo Dema and Axel are doing some major artist breakthrough recently with releases on Diva and Great Stuff and their remix for Sunet de Marimba is fat all over! I hope you dig this as much as the rest of the release which has something for everyone.

Berlin underground meets Amsterdam tech heads.
If you have a better description just drop me an e-mail but I definitely like the electronical blend of the two cities.
Jenn surely needs no introduction cuz here minimalistic beats and grooves have already been fired around the globe with lots of support and again this EP shows here strenght as a producer.

I personally know that she can deejay damn good too so do check out here music and DJ sets on here Myspace.

“Leave Me” opens with a dark and moody groove followed by Beees that has a strong and hypnotic drive with remixes by Tim and Jazper who go from powerful Amsterdam style techno to funky tech grooves.

Recently at Mysteryland we enjoyed a crazy crowd rocking to the beats of ‘Badbeats’ but surely the rest of the ‘Bucal ep’ will go down very well in your sets too.

Remixes are by the hands of Jazper, Michell van Wijngaarden and Franklin Reeves and vary from dark tech-house to pumping House music.

A new year is opening up and what better way to kick start 2011 with a superb debut techno album by Stefanowitz entitled “Zeitgeist”.
And since it’s also the first artist album to be released on Strom recordings we’re all very excited to launch this little jewel into the world the best way we can.

Stefanowitz’s (aka Stephen J Kroos) thoughts on the album title refer to his current state of mind in which he created a sonic landscape of music ‘which hopefully is still worth listening to in ten years from now..’ (quote Stefanowitz).

His ability to shape melodic structures with deep and layered dark beats is almost like a typical trademark for this Dutch producer who’s earlier releases got full support from DJ’s like Laurent Garnier, Sasha, Dubfire, Gregor Tresher, Paco Osuna and many more.

a new year and a new release from Amsterdam tech city to fill up the tracklisting gaps of your DJ sets. Kindimmer surely is nog stranger to the minimal scene but it’s nice to see that this release holds something for everyone. Roger Valdez delivers a hypnotic techno remix that keeps on building, stripping down to the bare essentials of the original.
Meanwhile label head James Nidecker goes into a more funky tech groove which shakes and breaks until it pops wide open to groove even a little bit more..

We have a new release this week which includes two of my favorite producers. The remixes of ‘The Fly that Bugs me’ are from the hands of two very profilic artists that have recently been dominating the charts frequently and we’re very happy to have WEHBBA and LANDMARK as our remix ambassadors for this release.

Wehbba has dived into an infectious house groove while Landmark edges toward the darker side of the minimal spectrum with a very strong flow of rhythms. Both have done a great job on this release and will hopefully please you as much as it did to us here at the Strom office.

Do check this one out cuz it really is a great firecracker.

Estroe dived deep into the techno vaults with a beautiful wam and soothing remix of Dwangwant while Zoutman turned the knobs fully to peak time level with his version of Pumtschj.

Finally Dimi Angelis and Jeroen Search crafted their stomping Techno vibes around Coccyx and delivered a strong floorfiller, bumping and shaking away into the night.

This is part 1 of the Zeitgeist remix EP so keep a look out for nr 2, coming soon..

As we approach the end of a vivid year with many label highlights it seems like there is no stopping the output of Strom artists. Another new Dutch talent has encountered many obstacles along the way but this ep certainly glided from his fingers quite easily and has twisted the low end to conquer the endless stream of releases in a world of old school aliens (poetic right? 😉

Anyway, check out his new ep on Strom which has deep and groovey tagged all the way..

Jeff Bennett – Exoplanet (Incl Tim Roscoe remix)
Nov 2011 30

Promo support by Fedde Le Grand, Sisko Electrofanatik, De:Bug magazine, Steve Lawler, Alex Young, Hermanez, Landmark, Sander Kleinenberg, Joseph Disco, Baggi Begovic, Luciano and many more..

With so many releases under his belt mr Bennet should need no introduction to the music scene but for those who don’t know, Jeff is one of the hardest working artists in the bizz.

Having released on labels like Pokerflat, Treibstof and his own imprint Kung Fu Dubs he has created sort of a special musical glow around his productions which are influenced by both Detroit and European styled electronic music.

This ep has a nice deep tech house flavored edge to it and is accompanied by an excellent killer remix by the hands of Tim Roscoe (great job Tim!).

Jerome Martinez – Valley of Tears
Dec 2011 30

Early promo support from Laurent Garnier, Luciano, Richie Hawtin, Remy, Axwell and many more..

Mr Martinez is nog stranger to the music scene but under this alter ego he delivers a totally surprising tech groove which shows his passion for the underground.
No we will not reveal his true identity but this little gem is definitely a cool venture into his other musical persona.

Also, don’t let the minimalistic approach of these two tracks fool you cuz they certainly work on the floor :-)

Valley of Tears seems like a hypnotic train which trancends on and on into a minimalistic build up that surprisingly still works very well in the club (take my word for it, I’ve seen the frenzy last month in a big Amsterdam venue).

Mountain of Sorrow kicks back with a more techy groove and a solid and clear production which nicely cuts through your speakers.

Remcord – Napoulis EP
Jan 2012 11

This new release by our latest Strom crew member Remcord (Paris) is perfect for balancing your sets between warming up and cooling down with it’s deep and minimalistic approach and atmospheric beats & glitches.

Napoulis warms us up with a nice rolling low end and a mobster voice saying ‘boom boom’ which could imply where the title track comes from (even though Remcord is not Italian). The remix by yours truly bangs away with a tribal groove that shakes away the minimalistic vibe of the original and rolls on with a little extra steam.

Castelbery delivers more deep beats and spikes and with a powerful remix by Mark Mywords this package nicely covers various musical spectrums.

Igor Valente – Come dance with me [OneOff001]
Feb 2012 16

A brand new sub label (House) on Strom recordings starts off with a bomb track by Igor Valente. Igor was also responsible for the hit single ‘The beat is rocking’ (Erick E) and he crafted ‘Come dance with me’ into a hot Ibiza tune and intends to spread sunshine all over the club charts.

A catchy hook with a seriously infectious vocal line is all that it takes to make ‘Come dance with me’ a true floorfiller for the rest of 2012.

Mike Seaver & James Nidecker – Work that body
Jul 2012 25

Promo support by Tiesto, Umek, Nick K, Marcus Schulz, Matt minimal, Fedde Le Grand, Xpansul, Sander Kleinenberg, Luciano, Steve Lawler, Paco Osuna and Richie Hawtin.

Peak time burner with a twist is what I would describe this new release by Mr Seaver and yours truly. We crafted something that grooves and pops but has a melodic twist to it that bites away niceley on a big fat sound system.

We’re also very happy with the remixes by Tim Roscoe who goes full throttle and bangs away with a real festival burning climax stomper, I love this one!. And finally our new pals Cooperated Souls who recently joined the Strom crew have turned the remix into something electrifying and headed into new territories for Strom which has a flint of Daft Punk vs big room funk.

Eat away and enjoy this new release for your festival season.

X James

When Harry Met Sally & Bondiboyz – I’m a F*ckin Nerd
Oct 2013 10

Another One Off release by the notorious producers duo the Bondiboyz together with one of Amsterdam’s most profiled female DJ’s When Harry Met Sally. Together they produced a catchy club track that already did major damage during the festival season earlier this year and should have no problem to conquer the club circuit towards the end of this year.

The remixes were cleverly produced by other talented Dutch producers Quinten 909 and The Backstabbers which make this release worthy of playing on all levels.
