STIR1532 in the media

Charles Webster: “Radio Support”

Chris Woodward (Fabric UK): “track is HEAVY!!! really beautiful!”

DJ Ino La Coruña, Spain: “For me the best track out there at the moment! Wow, what a beautifull song! I love it - the original is fuckin amazing and the basic is hot like hell. I'll play them for sure! This is real housemusic you bastards!”

DJ Karotte: “hit. wunderschöne platte von my man aus rüsselsheim. hab ich in meiner radioshow gespielt. tolle platte für die mädels.”

Frank Franksen Radio YOU FM: “Straight into my set... along terry callier (theme from spartacus), atjazz (touch the sun) and mj cole (give me back my love)"”

Gilles Peterson: “Playlist on BBC Radio 1”

GROOVE MAG. (GER): “C-Rock und Matthias Vogt tun sich diesmal mit Onejiru zusammen und heraus kommt eine Platte für den Sommer. Der Basic Mix ist schöner warmer House, durchzogen von sirenenhaften Vocals zu percussivelastigen Beats. Der Vocal Mix setzt die Percussions von Heiko Himminghoffen vom re:jazz Projekt ein wenig weiter in den Vordergrund, ansonsten wird in diesem Mix verstärkt mit Hall- und Echo-Effekten gearbeitet, also in klassischer Dub-Mix-Manier. Irgendwie trancig jenseits vom Klischee. Als DJ freut man sich über die zusätzlichen Beat- und Acapella-Edits.”

M.A.N.D.Y. (Get Physical/Kindi: “very nice song guys”

Phil Weeks: “Sounds fantastic!”

Rainer Trüby: “That is really a great tune you've given me! When is it coming out?”

Ralph Lawson (2020 Vision): “thanks for the record, very nice”

Sasse (Moodmusic): “like it a lot, please don't stop sending me the stir-15 stuff in the future”

Spex (GER): “Als MOTORCITYSOUL waren Christian »C-Rock« Rindermann und Matthias Vogt gemeinsam mit der afrikanischen Sängerin Onejiru im Studio. »Mbali (Potelea Mbali« (Stir 15/WAS) ist ein wunderschöner Afro-House-Track jenseits der Klischees. Wer dem Vibe von »Lovelee Dae« hinterher trauert, dem dürfte der reduzierte »Basic Mix« Trost spenden”

www.turntablelab.com: “"Anyone who likes Carl Craig, Charles Webster, or Francois K must check this one out. Absolutely stunningly beautiful deep house from Motorcitysoul, whose Kids in the Streets "Keep on Turning" release was widely agreed upon as the best deep house record released last year, for those who were lucky enough to score a copy. Here, they team up with singer/songwriter Oneijiru and percussionist Heiko Himminghoffen for an Afro flavored piece of house music. The "Basic Mix(1)," which has been getting play from Rainer Truby and Charles Webster, is a super deep jam with Carl Craig sounding synths. The vocal mix(2) includes more of the swirly vocals. Also includes an accapella and a very handy beats mix(3)"”
