Let’s head for new shores. That is precisely what the Berlin-based producer, DJ and label owner Oliver Koletzki thought when he recently founded his second imprint Light my Fire after seven years of Stil vor Talent. The inspiration came from his favourite The Doors classic and the LMF-philosophy is equally simple: electronic music that speaks volumes, with an international impact and focus on the dance-floor.
The label’s virgin release ‘Bealive’ dropped in November and came courtesy of the Kazakhstani newcomer duo Alexander Kovalenko and Stepan Knyazev alias Fapples, who demonstrate an impressive feel for contemporary deep house, sometimes with a disco touch, sometimes with an old school edge, gladly with feeling, a pinch of italo and the odd vocal sample. Always on board: a solid groove, skilful percussion and a substantial bass-line. Testament to LMF001’s quality, the EP’s title track quickly climbed into the Indie Dance/ Nu Disco top 20 on Beatport - a fiery start.
Towards the end of the year, Oliver Koletzki steps up himself to deliver LMF002 ‘Childhood Basslines’, a release that marks his first club-oriented EP in almost a year and is set to cement the young label’s reputation for high-calibre house music without a doubt. Not wanting to spoil the surprise, 2013 will see EPs by friends old and new, driven by one desire: to keep the fire burning!
