Even after more than 30 years of living the lifestyle of electronic dance music, Techno is still sometimes looking for a matching form and sound language to transfer the special thrill of a live event to a club night adequately. So, Sven Väth and his crew were even more excited about the live set of Eric Estornell aka Maetrik at Cocoon's Closing Party at Amnesia / Ibiza this year. For the final of a season that was once again exploring the limits of party culture, Maetrik celebrated an extraordinary energetic state of emergency for more than one hour. The resulting live CD is reflecting that matchless mixture of pumping Deep House, energetic Soul and adrenaline-enriched Noise that Maetrik presented already on such renowned labels from the likes of Treibstoff from Cologne, Dumb Unit and Steve Bug's Audiomatique platform, and which is, with timeless tracks like "Snorkel" and "Crush On Me", also an important part of Cocoon's current label portfolio.
The first accompanying 12" features the mind-blowing up-tempo-Techno monster "The Reason" and the programmatic Maetrik-style definition "Particle House" with its breathless House mantra.
