German DJ, producer, remix boss and label owner, Matthias Tanzmann is prepping a new release on his Moon Harbour label. He is releasing Ninetoes new EP that features his single "Be" along with remixes by Harvard Bass and himself. We are happy to premiere the Tanzmann remix for you today before it’s release on Friday.
Tanzmann does what he does best, bringing the most danceable bits out and highlighting them in a drum-heavy tech-house remix. We also caught up with Tanzmann to find out a little more about the remix, his plans for his label Moon Harbour and more.
You can pre-order the release on Beatport here.
What drew you to doing a remix for this record?
I very much liked the original and felt like I wanted to make a more driving and percussive version of it.
Why did you sign this record?
Ninetoes has become a regular on Moon Harbour over the last few years. We released his great track ‘Bonita’ last year. The Stand Up EP was the natural next step on our ongoing mutual way.
What are a few tips for having a great remix?
It sometimes feels like it is a matter of luck if the original stems inspire you to make something good out of it.
What are your plans for the rest of the year with your own career and Moon Harbour?
We are going to release new EPs by Dennis Cruz, Carloh and Yousef, followed by the 8th edition of the Moon Harbour Inhouse label compilation over the next weeks. On the 15th of June, Moon Harbour will return to Pacha Barcelona with a big showcase for the Barcelona Off Week.
What are some of the biggest changes you have seen with operating a label since you first started with Moon Harbour?
The biggest change has happened to musical formats. From vinyl and CDs over downloads to streams. Running a label has been very much affected by evolving technology and digitalization itself.
