Press Info:
Music, heard at the right moment, in some way resembles a river weaving its own path, inexorably sweeping everything and everyone along with it, exercising a primordial force difficult to escape. The Weisse Elster, the river that makes its way through the big city of Leipzig, embodies a counterpart to the small Steinlach, which flows quietly and calmly through the little student town of Tübingen (the birthplace of the label of the same name), giving this community its unique charm. After Wice moved to Leipzig, the obvious route to take was to create a Steinlach sublabel that would capture the flair of the big city, yet at the same time remain true to the nature of the flowing water – whilst taking into account crucial parameters that define a big city and that render it so lovable in its very own way.

The first release on the freshly founded Label Weisse Elster features five techno tracks that do justice to PAs and dance floors of a subcultural and diverse city. Purpose-built as they are, they skillfully elude the common sense as well as any trend by adding a fresh, inspired touch. Inevitably and with great focus the music overcomes the distance between the speaker and the dancer. This accomplishment is made possible by Wice’s timeless and inescapable groove patterns that in different ways underpin every track on the EP. The five tracks incorporate varied aspects of a club night and can be seamlessly woven into the flows of any DJ.

The goal here is to be ’expectedly-unexpected’ or ‘unexpectedly-expected’, to captivate the dancers, to gradually and naturally challenge their ears as well as their understanding of groove in a charming way, but without appearing pretentious. Long story short: Take a listen, Don’t skip, and Enjoy.
