Cocoon has had an eventful 2013 so far with the celebration of their 100th release with Cocoon 100 and a fantastic mix album from Ilario Alicante and Alejandro Mosso with Cocoon Ibiza 2013. Yet the Frankfurt man and owner of Cocoon Recordings, Sven Väth, is not ready to close this year out yet, showcasing the 2013 tracks that made an impact on the island of Ibiza this season with his latest double-disc mix album, The Sound of the 14th Season.
Known as a driving force behind the emergence of techno in Germany during the 90’s and since 1999 the migration of his Cocoon parties to Ibiza, where Väth at times would spin for up to 14 hours only to cease playing when his body was near collapse. The notoriety of these sets meant it did not take long for his parties to gain traction and become a Monday staple.
With 14 sequential season’s on the island, it’s a feat not many can boast, the most recent Cocoon events have taken place in the middle of the Island at the one of our favorite spots – Amnesia. Over this year’s 17 weeks, Sven decided to choose only a couple DJ’s to play in the 2 rooms, with talent from techno heavyweights Marcel Dettman, Dubfire, Chris Liebing, Loco Dice, and Ricardo Villalobos. These longer set times gave each performer more breathing room to facilitate the DJs to develop their sound throughout the night.
