With the remixalbum “Rip It Up“, on which the best works of his previous publications have been remixed, Malente continues where he left on — with a number of amazing releases on Unique Records.

Aside of the remixers, Malente himself added three exclusive tracks onto the record which makes it everything but an average remix album. His uncompromising manner to fuse funk-infected breakbeats with irresistible partygrooves is highly popular to say the least considering the long list of remixes he has done for among others Der Plan, DJ Friction,The Strike Boys, Thomilla, Bob Sinclair, Frank Popp Ensemble, Rocko Schamoni, Le Hammond Inferno as well as the uncountable DJ gigs he has held worldwide.

This album tells the story of a musician who travelled to the most different clubs all over the globe for years, to send the masses into frenzy with his definition of party music and to get in touch with the most eclectic producers. As diverse as these people have been, one thing certainly united them, Malente’s definition of dance music. Through various of these meetings and situations friendships developed and some of these friends can be found on his record today. Thus people of the likes of Dr. Rubberfunk, The All Good Funk Alliance, The Killergroove Formula. Boca45, The Strike Boys, Dublex-Inc., DJ Friction, Cedric Benoit and Thugfucker remixed Malente’s tracks.

This musical and friendly connection to Malente seems to be a highly fertile ground for excellent remixes and a true indicator that this is far from being a common remixalbum but much more a story round the music world of the DJ and producer Malente, which has some surprises in store.

All in all this record represents Malentes incomparable way to rock the dancefloors. From funk-exuding breakbeat hammers over true House-breakers down to minimalistic electro-stomping tracks this record is definitely everything – but monotonous.

The album Malente – Rip It Up (Unique Records) is going to be released March 14, 2005.
