Review

Of course you might have heard of that talented producer, formerly homebased in Köln…if you don’t, now you’ll never forget him! After some wonderful and massive releases on his own label Hartchef Discos, Trapez and Perlon Audio Werner is putting out his long expected EP on Circus Company:"If that record would be a bottle of wine it would definitely be a “Grand Cru Classé"…” (Jean Paul Belmondo)Which means nothing less that Audio Werner brings the traditional bouncy house flavor into to the “sound of today” - De la house avec de la classe…Before checking out A side “Flatfunk"please fasten your seat belt. You are about to get into an 11 minutes fly into a detroit house inspired track which is deep, melodical and “flatly” funked up in his tiny temporary Berlin studio during the hunt for an appartment.Flipside starts with the hypnotic and loopy track “Dba” variating the rhythm with acoustic percussion elements, acoustic “audi” hand claps and ride cymbals… What a pleasure when you arrive at the climax of the track and suddenly the deep chords are joining! Play it loud !!!B2 “Moved” is the moody side of Audio Werner. So delicious… Imagine Art Blakey on the drums jamming with Roy Ayers on his xylophone. It’s the deep night, in a small jazz club of Paris. The two dudes are really into it… and you can feel it!But in fact it’s only one guy and his name is Audio Werner.

CCS017 in the media

Giles Smith (secretsundaze UK): “REVIEW FROM FORTHCOMING DJ After some stellar releases on the likes of Perlon, Trapez and Hartchef, Andreas Werner has deservedly carved a reputation out for himself as someone doing his own thing. All his tracks are larger than life and this is no exception. Heavy but always funky drums dominate "Flatfunk" and i love the way he incorporates strings and a charlestone like jazz influence. "Dba" is a more laid back, organic groove which yet again focusses on the percussin but this time with live handclaps. I can see fans of certain South American DJ's and producers going crazy for this! Last up "Moved" goes even deeper and slightly darker with just as dose of Calypso with its xylophone keys and rolling conga's. What an ep.”

Groove Magazin (GER): “Die neue Audio Werner ist deeper, als ich erwartet hätte. Warme und glückliche Musik. „Flatfunk“ kombiniert räumliche Melodielinien mit hüpfenden Housebeats, zu denen man einfach tanzen muss. Ein warmer, multidimensionaler Trip. Die groovende Percussion von „Dba“ hält dich ebenfalls in Bewegung. Raffinierte Sounds spielen Verstecken mit deinen Ohren. Und schließlich „Moved“: eine mysteriöse Geschichte. Tiefe Drums und eine sublime Snare kombiniert mit Xylophoneinschüben. Absolut einnehmend!”

Groove Magazin (GER): “March/Feb #1”

Matthias Tanzmann: “one of the best records i heard in months!! all tracks are amazing!”

Mike Shannon: “does it get any better? subtle Jazzizms like walking bassline, a swingin groove and perfect amount of synth that just talks to me everytime. The A side just get's better and better as the tracks rolls on... any deeper and you would need a submersible! Audio Werner is the man! ”

Reynold (Trenton Records): “Great record! Once again a well made and very personal touch from Audio werner, a bit different from his usual tracks but somehow it fits the sound of CC..Will play for sure ! represent the Paris crew... I miss you guys ”

Troy Pierce (Minus, Underline): “really great tracks! thanks, t”
