Something about Robert Dietz:
Dietz is a firm favourite in clubs around the globe. These days he spins at his old haunt, Cocoon Frankfurt, but it is just one stop on an incessent world tour that sees him flit through Pacha, Ibiza; Dance Valley, Amsterdam; Revolver, Australia; Arma17, Moscow; London’s ultra-hip underground Shoreditch warehouse parties and a second south america Tour in November this year. The appeal of his music is abundantly clear to anyone lucky enough to have caught one of his beachside sets at Ushuaia, Ibiza, where he ingnited the crowd with supple, intoxicating, modern house that captured the celebratory spirit of old-fashioned club music fused with sleek, 21st century.
His production skills focus on the same meeting place between technical proficiency and pure excitement. Over the past few years Dietz has built up an impressive CV including work with the likes of Loco Dice, Karotte, Ilario Alicante, Davide Squillace and fellow Frankfurt rising star Reboot. His tracks have found their way into compilations for Cocoon, Cecille, Circo Loco and Timewarp, among others – evidence of the high regard other DJs have for Robert’s work.
Dietz found that his ethos also fits perfectly with the aesthetic of Cadenza Records and he is a valued member of the merry dancefloor pranksters the Vagabundos. As well as joining them at Pacha (Ibiza) with six gigs this season,
Dietz has just released his first record on Cadenza: Home Run.
A supremely confident label debut, it boasts two combustible tracks – the anthemic, ambitious techno stormer Soup Opera and, on the flip side, the insanely catchy, tribal-tinged Aurel in Wonderland. Both records are set to keep bodies moving all summer – and longer.
