After releasing brilliant mixes from Patrice Bäumel and Darius Syrossian, Balance has tapped German tech-house master Alex Niggemann for the label’s next compilation out October 28. Known for emotive releases on Sasha’s Last Night On Earth and Steve Bug‘s Poker Flat Recordings as well as helming AEON Audio, the 19-track brandishes cuts by Gui Boratto, dubspeeka, Aril Brikha & Sebastian Mullaert and Philipp Stoya.
Obligatory press release gush from Niggemann: “I think this mix is easy to listen to while doing something else, but it’s also something to trip out on; bringing you on a journey when listening to it very precisely with closed eyes. In this moment you’ll also find out about the little details that you maybe don’t hear on the first listen, but which I hope make this mix special.” Get a taste of the mix and check the track listing below.

After the negativity stirred up by Ten Walls’ shameful anti-gay comments, here’s some better news for dance music fans. Berlin-based DJ/producer/AEON Audio label boss Alex Niggemann will embark on a brief North American tour beginning June 11 at Treehouse in Miami. In addition to his stateside trek, which also includes appearances in Montreal and Vancouver, Niggemann will release his Stellar EP, a deep tech-house affair featuring two original productions, “Stellar” and “Asterism,” on June 22.

With releases on My Favorite Robot, Compost, Musica Autonomica and Cityfox as well as remixes for DJ Sneak and Sea Creatures to their credit, emerging duo Speaking Minds are set to present their first EP for Alex Niggemann’s AEON label.
The Road To Paradise EP shows even more sides of Simone Sinatti and Marco Paladin’s musical personality, which leans in the direction of deep, vibey music living on the border between techno and house music.
To whet your appetite, here’s the world premiere of “Yaoundé” from the Northern Italy-based pair’s smoldering three-track offering.
Clocking in at over 7 minutes, the meditative instrumental is an understated, epic production delicately built on deep bass and synths and carefully crafted drums.
If you’re a sucker for beautiful electronic music, then you just found your new favorite producers.
Speaking Minds’ Road To Paradise EP is released April 27, 2015 on AEON.
