It is one year ago that Mathias Kaden presented a very personal journey to his musical roots in the shape of an album called "Energetic". Equally as long he has been out in the world as a live act - with some large analogous luggage and the same joy of performing with which he had won many hearts as a DJ on the dancefloor beforehand. After the first batch of remixes (among others by Michael Mayer and Redshape) there are now following further revisions of three of the album's tracks.

FAT 071 Remixes Part I

FAT 071 is out Now! Energetic Remixes by Michael Mayer, Cuthead, Redshape & Nick Curly! more

As an ode to the energy of classical – characterized by warmth and soul – house sounds, Mathias Kaden’s second album “Energetic” was received generously this summer by music criticism as well as by longtime fans and not least by dancers on the dancefloors around the world. Since that is where Mathias Kaden first performed his work live. Besides the excitement of the original tracks, there is however always the fascinating question in what way further ‘greats’ of this music will newly accentuate Kaden’s tracks with their remixes, admix other nuances, break out in different directions.

Mathias Kaden did a nice fresh mix, wich now was published as the latest Groove Podcast Episode No. 44.
Have fun whie listening!

...Im Interview in der letzten Groove-Ausgabe kündigte Mathias Kaden an, dass er in näherer Zukunft fast ausschließlich live spielen will. Der DJ und Produzent aus Thüringen hat gerade erst sein zweites Album Energetic veröffentlicht, und dieses möchte er dem Publikum bestmöglich präsentieren. „Ich will zeigen, wer ich bin, was ich mache, wo ich 2015 stehe“, sagt Kaden. Doch den DJ-Kopfhörer legt er nicht ganz zur Seite. Das wäre auch sehr schade, denn gerade für seine Auflegkünste ist Kaden weit über seine thüringische Heimat hinaus bekannt und beliebt. Wir freuen uns deshalb sehr, dass er sich für unsere Podcast-Reihe ans Mischpult begeben und einen Mix aufgenommen hat, der natürlich einige Stücke von Energetic sowie einen speziellen Kaden-Edit enthält.

Mathias, wie hast du die Stücke für deinen Podcast ausgewählt? Hattest du ein bestimmtes Konzept dafür im Hinterkopf?

Ich wollte nur Stücke nehmen, die mal nicht nur auf den Groove oder Rhythmus schauen, sondern auch etwas Melodisches transportieren, wie in meinem neuen Album auch.

Wo und wie wurde der Mix aufgenommen?

Den Mix habe ich dieses Mal zu Hause gemacht. (Ich ziehe gerade mit meinem Studio um.) Aufgenommen habe ich den Mix mit meinem tollen Sony PCM 50 Aufnahmegerät.

Im Groove-Interview hast du unlängst erwähnt, dass du dich in Zukunft auf Live-Shows konzentrieren und kaum noch als DJ auftreten willst. Ist es dir schwer gefallen für uns noch einmal eine Ausnahme zu machen?

Für die Groove ist es immer etwas sehr besonderes. Man überlegt zwar viel mehr als im Club, was man in 60 Minuten verpacken möchte, aber es macht mir weiterhin viel Spass!

Biografie

Likably undisguised, always surprising and full of verve – putting Mathias Kaden's charisma in a nutshell is one thing. Another is the feeling of hearing him live in a night club or open air – nothing feels like that. Very naturally he absorbs the audience's vibe and radiates his own energy into it – no matter whether it's for a warm-up, at prime time or whilst closing. Mathias Kaden has been a DJ for more than 15 years now. And after more than 1500 gigs he still hasn't lost his addictive enthusiasm which has given special moments to fans on dancefloors on almost all continents.

It all started far away from the big clubbing centers, in the green heart of Germany between the contemplative cities of Jena and Gera. Growing up there, Kaden was a passionate nightclubber and discovered DJing in the mid-90s. His sets then were dominated by the classic vocal house of his American heroes. Later, his sound preferences broadened from minimal house arrangements to a contemporary eclecticism that Kaden has found a fitting trademark for, namely Power House. Instead of strict limits in genre, Power House describes his very own way of fast mixing whilst keeping a certain groove and yet continually surprising his audiences with his music. None of his sets are like another.
