3850_featuresOne of the most powerful labels in dance music and one of the biggest success stories turns 5. Great Stuff Recordings looks back with pride on its countless fantastic releases and amazing artist family. It all began back in 2003 in Munich with a few nice tracks by founding member Tomcraft, the British duo Coburn, and Gus Gus, the label’s very special friends from Iceland. These not only led towards highly acclaimed album releases by Gregor Tresher, Butch, Coburn, Ramon Tapia and Lützenkirchen, but also to numerous international underground club hits.

Some even appealed to a broader audience and climbed up the single charts. Great Stuff clearly started as one of THE leading electro house labels, breaking into unknown territories with genre-defining releases like Coburn’s “We Interrupt This Program”, The Egg’s “Walking Away / Tocadisco Remix”, and Mason’s “Exceeder”. Though it was never about that one sound for Great Stuff Recordings, the musical direction has always been clear: peaktime club tunes from any genre – be it house, electro or techno, from minimal to maximal. It was always about the premier league of tasteful club anthems, the future classics with that extra melody or vocal, rather than just about pure DJ tools. Just like the steady change of the club scene with its constantly evolving styles and genres Great Stuff’s sound moves and develops accordingly. Releases by Gregor Tresher, Martin Eyerer, Lützenkirchen, Namito, and Butch are very clear signs that the times of electro house are over.

For the A&R Rainer Weichhold spotting new talents goes hand in hand with the steady renewal of the Great Stuff sound. Lützenkirchen, Butch, Swen Weber, Mason etc. quickly became new global players in the electronic scene and started a great career from zero to none. And the next future hero is about to take off: Ramon Tapia from Belgium.

Every innovation still has its roots in the past, that’s why the Great Stuff Roots Edition pays respect to special classics and lost treasures. Great originals by Rockers Hi-Fi, Whirlpool Productions, Nicolette and Pressure Drop have enjoyed new interpretations by different remixers. In Spring 2009 it will be time for another jewel: Luomo’s “Tessio” with new mixes by Stimming and Spektre.

Also compilation-wise Great Stuff is trying new concepts and possibilities. “Great Carnival Stuff” and “Great Summergames Stuff” (for the Olympic Games 2008) have only been the start of these compilations including exclusively produced tracks only. In late Summer 2009 it will be “Great Oktoberfest Stuff” with the best music you can imagine strictly from Bavaria.

The double CD “5 Years Of Great Stuff” gives you the perfect overview and outlook of the diverse sound of Great Stuff: CD 1, presented by Tomcraft & Lützenkirchen lets you travel through the back catalogue with their ‘Best Of Great Stuff’ mix: 35 classics mixed, mashed up and edited, from left to right, from the big classics to the latest tunes. CD2 exclusively consists of brand new versions from current Great Stuff artists, remixing their respective favourites out of the Great Stuff Recordings catalogue. Plus a very special highlight, the birthday serenade from Tomcraft & Lützenkirchen. Enjoy!
