Rating: 7.5


To celebrate the one year anniversary of their label ventures, German techno output Made of Concrete have took four previous releases and polished them up for a legitimate remix EP.

Label heads Andreas Pionty and fumee grise bring two edits each and we host an exclusive premiere of two cuts, one from each remixer. Andreas Pionty’s remix for Gathaspar’s Lover Of Ursa Major, and fumee’s mix of Steven Cock – Fusion.

Both remixes keep the ‘solid concrete ethos’ of the label, with the boys putting it as “We selected 4 tracks which we released during our first year and transformed them into our style we represent as DJs, Labelowner and A&Rs”.

The MOC007 EP will be available on vinyl from 19th February and digitally from 4th March.

You’re celebrating your 1st birthday, tell us about the occasion?

Made of Concrete

Our first birthday we celebrate with a special release and two events in our home towns Berlin & Dresden. In Dresden we celebrate with the support of the guest artist ANDREA from Ilian Tape at TBA Club on February the 20th and in Berlin we host our so far biggest labelnight, including artists like Daniel Stefanik, Ashworth and a special guest artist at IPSE on 24th March.

The Berlin event will also streamed via Be-At TV so if you’re not in town you can follow it online. All together we think it’s a nice package for a first birthday.

A four track remix EP is being released, to mark the date in style. Tell us about the player and how you chose the remixers?

Made of Concrete

The idea behind the release was to look back on our first year and to connect it with a homage from us as label heads to our artists.

The starting point of our concept was that each of us (Andreas Pionty & fumée grise) selected two tracks that we decided, consequently, to reinterpret with our own touch. For us the EP is expression of the bond between the label family members.
