Release reviews

Cio D'Or - "Die Faser / Part 1" (incl. Donato Dozzy Rmxs)

Various Press & DJ Reviews

Kevin Gorman/Mikrowave: super super release on prologue. love both yours and donatos version... congrats!!

Obtane Synewave/Prologue: If you thought Munich was the capital of electro you was probably wrong. Prologue is rising up with a mindblowing sound who people calls "headfuck techno". Label is totally forwarded to the future and this release is again the confirmation. Zellulose, a superb and sinister intro with cinematic feelings, is starting the ep in a perfect way. Goldbrokat is a masterpiece of melancholic and hypnotic techno with refreshing atmospheres without business deals, just for the pleasure to make true underground techno. Donato Dozzy turns it in two versions. a drone remix that reminds to his own imprint on Aquaplano and an analogic techno monster that will damages dancefloors seriously.

Mnmlmssgs: quality release from a distinctive voice. the beautiful originals are artfully reworked by dozzy. highly recommended.

Stephan Bodzin: full support for one of the most atmospheric releases i heard lately!

Laurent Garnier: beautifull atmosphere Will play A2 (original) everywhere

Giorgio Gigli (Prologue/Zooloft): Goldbrokat original mix is a GREAT track!! is the best track of the album i love this sound!

Josh Wink (Ovum Recordings): deep and sexy techno. Like A2(Original) best. Donato's techno rmx is good too, a tad bit progressive sounding for me but killer hypnotic groove...

Silent Servant (Sandwell District): good release... will chart for sure at some point...

Peter Van Hoesen: my favs are the original of Goldbrokat and Dozzy's techno remix. Swell!

Samuli Kemppi (Prologue): Superb cut from the LP. Will play on radio and gigs, both original version and Donato's techno remix.

Lucy (Stroboscopic Artefacts): that's what I call new techno... Full support! Actually it's very hard to choose my fave, and that's cool!

Markus Kavka (MTV Europe): gewohnte top-qualität! "goldbrokat" ist ein großartiger track - sagenhaft, wie der sich nach hinten raus öffnet, man möchte die ganze welt umarmen.

Richie Hawtin (Minus): download for R Hawtin

Tony Rohr (Clink, Weave): This is a FAN-fucking-TASTIC record.

Expander (Sonic Culture): Great release! Love all tracks..!

Mark S. Krüx (Urb Magazine): Really love anything Cio D'or does... Ambient remix could be useful.

Chris Burkhalter (Resident Advisor): Shifting from atmospheric percussion treatments to gently dramatic keys, the softspoken "Goldbrokat" blooms into something quite stirring. This ought to sound terrific on a big sound system but, to me, the track's slowly unfolding, almost narrative quality is headphones bliss. And Dozzy's pair of remixes are an absolute treat. Great package!

Lee Curtis: Goldbrokat is like re-entering the womb...

Brett Johnson (Cynosure, Frankie): While this release has some very nice atmospherics none of the dance mixes are things that i would play. I like however the intro/ambient bits. thanks.

Marc Miroir (Paso Music): I like "Goldbrokat" the original and the techno remix of Donato. very good stuff :)

Brendon Moeller (Third Ear / Echocord): donato's remixes are great! original pretty hot too. nice package!

Alland Byallo (Nightlight Music): Finally some minimalist techno comes out that can actually be called "minimal." Although I can't really fit Goldbrokat original mix into my dj sets, I love it immensely. That said, I will definitely be playing Donato's Techno remix. Will run it this weekend, for sure.

Kevin Gorman: a brilliant release.. goldbrokat is epic and dark, the donato remix complements it very nicely.. takes me back to the early harthouse releases circa early 90s! many thanks

DJ Montana (Club ) (Sputnik): goldbrokat = good intensity and still calm music, 9/13, donato dozzy techno mix is also cool, thx morten

Tobias Staab (Groove Magazine): four great tracks. dozzy does an amazing job. perfect ep.

Electric Indigo: just love cio's ambient tunes... zellulose wind is actually my favorite here. donato dozzy's ambient remix is really subtle and beautiful as well. goldbrokat, however, i find seducing :)
