Welcome to the Slash Label!

With all the enthusiasm and fascination we are opening our doors. The first piece of cake comes from one of the upcoming newcomers in 2009: Ahmet Sisman delivers us as usual two trippy dance floor tracks to burn out the LED lights in your favourite club.

A side “Candela” defines the smoothness and rhythmical sense on its own. Featured by the mystical vocals of Rosa Maria Cisneros-Kostic who comes from the Spanish-Gypsy-Flamenco scene, the track creates an indescribable feeling of happiness and sadness at the same time. One of the outstanding dance textures between House and Techno.

Instead of the A Side; “Saruka” gives us the well know African “Aah-Yeah” feeling of Ahmet Sisman's Voodoo trip as we already know from his track “Buiya” on Sven Väth's Cocoon Mix CD “the Ninth Season”. Filled with overwhelming vocals from the Isaia Clan, the ceremony turns later into a monstrous Percussion-Techno-Groove.

Beelzebub Ahmet Sisman and Slash have a devil for a sideboard...
