We are extremely excited to present you with a brand new remixed version of Beckers’ smash hit “Switch”! The original was released back in 2005 on Sprout and has been one of the biggest success stories for the label so far.
Beckers’ (part of D-Nox & Beckers) “2014 Remix” comes in the form of a very sleek, almost floating construct of some naughty, electric vocals and a lush groove. Forward moving and with just the right amount of energy to make this version work throughout the summer. The smooth acid-like sounds are the icing on this very tasty cake.
Velkro’s interpretation is a funky one. Adding old school, Detroit inspired chords to provide a bit of an uplifting vibe it. He keeps it simple, while only adding some effect trickery to the vocal parts. The big bassline, that provides the backbone of the mix reminds us of the good old garage days.
Flow & Zeo Carioca are closing of the EP with an atmospheric, broken beat version. The mix teases with some rock guitar influences and builds within reverb and delay patterns.
10 Years of Great Stuff - Lost Tracks & Remixes
Great Stuff Recordings
How time flies! Great Stuff Recordings turns 10!
Founded in November 2003 in Munich by Tomcraft alongside colleagues Erik May and Sebi Bohnenberger, Great Stuff’s reputation as a bastion of quality electronic music rose quicker and stronger than its creators could have anticipated. From its beginnings pushing German talent to flourishing in the electro house heyday with acts like Mason, GusGus, Coburn and The Egg, through helping to break artists in the minimal techno zeitgeist like Butch, Ramon Tapia and Gregor Tresher, through to its current incarnation as an eclectic house and tech label, Great Stuff has always moved effortlessly with the times. Its development has never been forced or contrived, instead focusing on the most exciting house and techno flavors of the moment, whatever the era.
To celebrate this milestone the label releases the “Lost Tracks & Remixes- compilation. A special selection of thirty tracks that represent Great Stuff’s history very well. It features a record that has previously never been released digitally - “Great Stuff- by Tomcraft & Eniac (GSR001). Another track that is exclusive to this compilation is Andrey Exx & Fomichev’s remix of Lissat & Volatxx’s “Closer to Me- smash hit.

The KLARDUST duo make their return to Great Stuff Recordings, after their summer smash hit remix for The Egg’s “Walking Away”. Their latest creation “Byou” is an adventurous excursion into today’s avant-garde house music landscape. A jiggling bass structure provides great excitement, while the slightly distorted 8-Bit sounds cruise nicely alongside the incredibly warm chords. The female vocal snippets keep things moving forward in a sophisticated way.

While summer is in full swing, we present you a fine package of brand new remixes of Ron Carroll’s house classic “The Sermon”.
Sharply moving, synthesized bass frequencies drill themselves through a tight knit net of massive hi-hat and percussion layers, while the classic vocals provide the jacking vibe. Tobi Kramer manages to playfully inject cutting edge techno funk into his handcrafted mix.
Italy’s Qubiko intensifies the original’s atmosphere with his up-to-date, jackpot remix. He combines his deep signature sounds, with Ron’s true Chicago house roots. A combination that will capitative and thrill house and deep-house heads alike.
Juanito & Rio Dela Duna, Soheil and David Novacek all went into their labs and came back with their very own interpretations as well. Enjoy the ride!

The Italian Phunk Investigation duo returns to Great Stuff together with the power house phenomenon Styline. The trio present us with their trademark sharp, growling syths and basslines, which will destroy big rooms and festivals alike. The beefy percussion layers and intensely forward marching groove are turning this beast of a track into a dangerous dancefloor weapon.
On the flip side Alex Silvestri strips things down and adds a tribal percussion vibe to his interpretation, as well as a bed of perky white noise sounds to his break downs.
UMEK Move Around Great Stuff Recordings Slovenian star UMEK's latest banger for Great Stuff does away with anything as pedestrian as a featureless beat-led intro, instead dropping us straight into a breakdown/build style scenario. Its energy is all the more potent for it. A cheeky '90s Euro dance style synth hook stabs away at a supremely skippy, feisty percussion section, with a bouncy bassline mirroring its infectious melody in synergistic fashion. Backwards fills, manic drum rolls and colourful FX provide plenty of entertainment in the background, the groove hammers away in the fore. Think names like Kadoc, Klubbheads and Natural Born Groovers given a 2013 update, and bolstered by lashings of that inimitable UMEK grooviness. Brimming over with dancefloor energy, it's set to be a firm favourite over the summer months with those who like their house music rampant and bursting at the seams.

Great Stuff is thrilled to present a state-of-the art remix package of Berlin’s deep house maestro Phonique and his smash-hit “Feel What You Want feat. Rebecca”. Originally a club hit more then twenty years ago for the US vocalist Kristine W, Phonique re-worked the track in 2010 for maximal impact on dance floors outside of North America. He re-recorded the vocal with the extremely talented Rebecca and added his seductive magic to the arrangement and gripping groove.
Catchy vibes and a captivating minimal aesthetic are AKA AKA feat. Thalstroem’s production trademarks, which they apply in a masterly fashion within their floor-filling remix. They maintain the original’s mojo, while at the same time knitting a tight a web of fresh synth sounds and bass frequencies that is sure to get everyone’s hands in the air!
The duo Elektromekanik & Happy Gutenberg take us back to a sunny beach instantly. They deliver an acoustic fusion of layered guitar notes and pleasing piano chords giving it an overall uplifting feel. Making clever use of the vocal, both add effects in all the right places to keep the focus on the lyrics and highlight their infectious thick groove.
We are very proud to welcome Olivier Giacomotto to Great Stuff with his brilliant “Dusk & Dawn” release. The French veteran producer and DJ has released countless releases on some of the most respected labels in his long lasting career. With “Dusk & Dawn” he presents a genuine two-tracker, that celebrates the essential elements of house music.
“Dusk” is a slow burner that’s built around a bunch of stomach-wrenching bass sounds, that will drill right through your head. The added acid-like weirdness and bleeps make the track even more fun and exciting. The super-tight percussions and vocal snippets provide the right amount of energy.
“Dawn” comes along very cool, the bass line was played in a subtle way to make it as funky as possible. Although it’s all about the male vocal verbalizing the sacred meaning of house music & dance. This track will make you want to lose yourself in it’s groove for hours and hours. No big build ups, no effect madness “just” good music.
