Monika Kruse gained a lot of respect with her long awaited first solo-album Changes of Perception that was released last September. In Raveline's reader's poll it gained #2 in the category Best Album of 2008 and in the Groove magazine it appeared #13 of the best albums of the year! This year the "Changes of Perception" remix EPs are going to be released featuring newcomers as well as wellestablished artists who present their interpretations of their favorite tracks. On the first EP Broombeck - one of the most promising newcomers at moment - brings a very groovy, powerful tune with his remix of "When I Woke Up". The subtle bassline and good handful aggressiveness form the track and for the rhythm structure he has some nice gimmicks to offer. Also the track features surprising samples and patterns that establish a strong relationship to Monika's original.
With sure instinct Mark Broom attends to the track "Don't Come Close". His version is so deep and soulful that one wishes it shall never end - which is not least an effect of Monikas dreamy voice that appears from time to time and vanishes in its own echo.
Marcus Schmahl from the city of Mainz/Germany is the man behind the pseudonym of Broombeck. Within shortest time he has become a well-respected producer having great success with his releases on Opossum, Data Punk and Big City Beats records. His track "Mono Turn" gained #8 of the Best Of Beatport 2008 Minimal charts and his records have become an inherent part of the playlists of djs like Marco Carola, Monika Kruse and Stephan Bodzin. Also he concentrates very much on his liveact and in march he will play at Sven Vath's Cocoon club in Frankfurt. And we are happy to announce he will soon be on our Terminal M booking roster.
Mark Broom has been one of the leading protagonists of the electronic music scene since many years. He is reckoned the embodiment of functional techno and contributes a lot to the sound of the genre with his label Pure Plastic that he runs together with Dave Hill. With Dave he teamed up under the pseudonym of Rue East and in 2001 they published their album "Indoor Culture" which also included the immortal piece "Birmingham". As a dj Mark Broom has bookings around the globe and he has played at many important venues such as Fuse club in Brussels or the London-based Fabric.
