Ellum Audio

The constantly evolving Ellum Audio imprint welcomes German techno duo Switchbox and the irresistibly groovy ‘Pirates Poetry’ to the label. Label head Maceo Plex and wonder boy Danny Daze join forces as Jupiter Jazz to deliver a stellar remix, with a Switchbox remix of dreamAwaken’s ‘8 Bit In A Bit’ to round off.

The original ‘Pirates Poetry’ ticks all the boxes of an Ellum Audio classic, perfect for the big room at peak time with full fat squelchy basslines, seductive grooves and trippy FX. The sensual yet hypnotic vocal from NAtz sits seamlessly within the track to add to that all-important dancefloor trip.

Over on the B-side Maceo Plex and Danny Daze aka Jupiter Jazz step up to deliver a solid, heavy-duty remix filled with sonic acid naughtiness and pacey percussions – set to cause mayhem on the dance floor. With two industry heavy weights such as these combining forces there’s no doubt they are set to do some series damage.

For the last track on the release Switchbox deliver a knock out remix of ‘8 Bit In A Bit’ by Marcelo Storino Mortimer aka dreamAwaken. This deep and dark dance floor monster is equipped with rumbling synths and a powerful low end, deep and driving with an epic breakdown, perfect for the late night ravers.

Götz Bökler and Nik Bohn aka Switchbox have been making music and preforming together since the late 90s but also work individually as Goetzlich and Nuke. Having spent some years exploring different genres in other projects, the pair have found the way back to their roots with the re-launch of Switchbox, giving them a new lust to once again explore the techy way of the electronic universe. Since their first release on Sprout Music, Switchbox has received international support by some hugely respected artists like Jamie Stevens, Meat Katie, Dubfire, Sharam, Dr Motte and D-nox and are currently preparing a live act to tour with, as well as working on new tracks for their first album. This latest release is undoubtedly the perfect addition to the Ellum Audio catalogue.
