German label Liebe Detail celebrates a decade of music store Beatport with a series of compilations. The second track featured on the new Liebe Detail #BeatportDecade Deep House compilation is Lars Behrenroth's "Organism" originally released 2007 on Liebe Detail's 15th vinyl release with a flipside by Ripperton.
Lars Behrenroth's 'Ice On The Sun', originally released on Freerange Records in May 2008, is featured on Satoshi Tomiie's lastest mix compilation for Renaissance - The Master Series due out on November 3rd 2008.
Satoshi Tomiie is an artist who needs little introduction. From his first explosion onto the scene in the late eighties with the famed Frankie Knuckles collaboration, ‘Tears’, through to more recent work on his own esteemed SAW label, he has expertly walked the line, marrying deeper, more atmospheric sounds with his soulful roots.
The Japanese-by-way-of-New-York Don takes you on a sublime, deep tech-house excursion that draws on some of the brightest luminaries at work in the scene today, from Radio Slave to Layo & Bushwacka!, Jimpster, Motorcitysoul, Marc Romboy, Mlle Caro & Franck Garcia, Jeff Bennett and many more besides..
In his own words:
"My definition of house remains the same - 'an open minded, evolving form of dance music"

From the label, Freerange Records :
Time to introduce Lars Behrenroth to the Freerange fold with an impressive new EP entitled Ice On The Sun. Lars has an impressive track record of productions and remixes for a variety of labels including Chez Music, Deep4Life, Compost, Sonar Kollektiv and most recently Liebe*Detail.
With his Freerange debut he’s pulled out every deep stop in the book to produce two tracks of forward thinking electronic club music which are complimented with an awesome remix by Version aka Charles Webster and Atjazz..
First up we have Ice On The Sun, a sublime slice of minimal deep house that retains an understated energy whilst filters slowly open and close to build the arrangement. A real slow burner that’ll warm things up nicely or create a nice bit of space in your set wherever you choose to drop it.
Feel The Sunshine is up next and treads a similar path but with the addition of some nice vocal hooks and all important detroitesque synth lines layering things up. The key to Lars sound is his stripped back approach to production where he keeps all the elements as dry as possible for maximum sonic impact. We feel he’s got a fresh and unique touch to his tracks at a time where so much stuff is sounding a bit on the generic side of things.
The legends that are Charles Webster and Atjazz get busy with their Version remix of Ice On the Sun, turning in a supremely confident belter of a track which we know is going to prove very popular indeed. This is a heads down groover that builds nicely and is loaded with attitude and dancefloor pleasing sensibility.

From the label: “Organism", Lars Behrenroth's debut for Liebe*Detail, can definitely be classified as House, but not in that jazzy, musical kind of way. It rather lingers at the crossroads of recent Ibadan releases, Âme and Carl Craig. The track grandly and slowly glides towards a synth heavy climax, which will leave many dancefloors breathless.

Osunlade (Yoruba Records)
Deep, minimal and just right for that transitional moment during any set!
Alex Attias (Visions Records / Co-Op / Still Music)
Good dark release for playing in a club. I’m diggin all tracks so it’s a YES. I will play and I’m feeling this EP. Well Done. Keep groovin!
The Hunting Tool
Sean Smith (Smooth Agent Records)
I am feeling the tracks. The one I like the most is Subconcious Dark. The tracks are different than the norm and that is a good thing. Definitly playing these out.
Boddhi Satva (Yoruba Records)
Massive support for this massive piece. I wish you guys a lot of sales with it.
Florian Meindl (Flash / Klingklong / Greatstuff)
Ghosthunter is veeery nice! i play it....
Tony Garvey (Defected)
Just wanted to drop you a line to say I got a couple of your
tracks from Prog City, I love em bro, big respect.
Neil Aline (CHEZ Music)
I’m playing the hell out of Ghosthunter right now!
Manuel Tur (Freerange)
Gut gemacht, das epische Ghosthunter duerfte im Club perfekt funktionieren, wie bei seiner letzten PCDM gefaellt mir hier aber auch die B-Seite besser - trotz boellerndem Bass enorm groovy und flie?end.. wird definitiv gespielt!
Dean Serafini (Jjazzproject)
Deep, dark atmospheric moods and strong beats are the order of the day on this EP from Lars Behrenroth. Both tracks are synth led: whilst ‘Subconscious Dark’ is pretty much a mood builder, ‘Ghosthunter’ is absolutely striking. The haunting synths give the track a distinct vibe that really hits the spot. It?s not what I normally go for but this has certainly got my attention big style.
Tim White (House Afrika)
Lovely Tunes. Will be dropping them for sure!
Ryan McAdam (Iwanai Music)
I especially like Subconscious Dark! Ghost Hunter is on John Kumahara's Iwanai Music April Mix right here…
Nomumbah (Yoruba Records, Brazil)
The EP is great
Soul Oasis (CyberJamz)
Lars by puttin it down!
Fairplay Lars Behrenroth has been putting out some lovely tunes recently, love Subconcious Dark sounds like a techier version of Son of Raw. Very nice indeed.
Mirko Paoloni (Party Groove Radio)
Great production. Straight into our clubology house charts.
A Lars Behrenroth trick bag synthesis, delivering a fine lift & fresh breath to prog., from a trainspoter crowd to a radio show, it's a true weapon.
"Ghosthunter" is my favorite on this EP. You can hear more of it on this mix: [www.daliciousmonster.com]
Nico Moss (CyberJamz)
Dope Record !!
Liked the Subconscious Dark best 8/10
Love the Ghosthunter track! Thanks for the deep shit…
Agent Greg (Freeze Magazine)
Great EP, both tracks have a good feel of deep and tech sounds!
I like "Subconcious Dark" and played it on last weeks show
Mazi (Gourmet / Brique Rouge)
Thanks for this. Ghosthunter is a beautiful track. I am including in my May chart going out to the magazines and full support in the clubs and on my radio shows. Great stuff.
