Press Release

Cologne based DJ/Producer Maik Loewen has been building an enviable reputation over the recent years with his standout single releases for Pokerflat, Karmarouge and Trapez. Now he releases his first EP for his own Niveous Records imprint, a label with a refreshing outlook and intent to release the very best of electronic music.

Loewen musical history dates back to the beginning of the decade when he relocated to Cologne from Dusseldorf. He immersed himself in the underground electro and techno culture of the city and soon struck up a friendship with Gabriel Ananda and the Karmarouge crew. His work with Gabriel and his studio engineering skills led to studio work for Trapez and on to his own extremely successful releases for some of Germany’s leading labels.

All of this experience has been synthesised into this latest release ‘Questions’, a four track EP showcasing Loewen’s production skills and passion for quality house music.

Kicking of the release we have ‘Melina’ a deep and warm house cut build around a flamenco guitar and classical Latin vocals. This record has an instant charm and character that is hard to ignore and is bound to find favour with househeads across the globe.

Next up is the wonderfully deep and techy ‘Picnic’, a journey into the realms of simplistic yet highly emotive house, stripped to its bare elements to expose its true soul.

Penultimate cut ‘Dint’ sees Loewen move further into heads down territory with this hypnotic track that rides along on a wave of layered percussion and warm, rich bass tones.

Finally we have the EP’s title track ‘Questions’, a cut with a ethereal and slightly haunting atmosphere that builds into a brilliant piece of leftfield house. A great closing piece for a superb EP.

Maik Loewen’s ‘Questions’ is released on Niveous Records in late Oct / early Nov
