A VA concept with its eyes set firmly forward and tracks from friends and kindred spirits that they have been road-testing to perfection at their Isolate nights, ‚Mutations 01‘ is a powerful collection of provocative stargazers kicking off with Rafael Da Cruz’s ‚Conrad‘ where the lingering pianos and unhurried pace set the deep foundations. Label co-founder Alican follows with a track that marches you into the foggy unknown with just the right shade of uplift to keep your floor guessing what comes next. Deeper into the EP we hit Mool’s exceptionally titled ‚Grow A Soul‘ where sweeping synths wrap around chugging beats and a rising top line and cascading bassline intertwine like DNA. Finally Enzo Elia follows his recent Kompakt release with a neon cinematic escapade of dramatic proportions.

Rusu EP / Moodmusic Records #203
For the Mood203 Rafael Da Cruz delivered two outstanding cuts. We warmly welcome him on our label. His debut release ‚Rusu‘ marks his significant sound which lives from strong synth patterns lovely embedded in detailed atmospheres. The first track ‚Rusu‘ is leading the whole package and will for sure find its way to the dance floors. His second track ‚Serra‘ is defined by a nicely evolving melody which will cause some uplifting impact in the clubs as well. To complete the package we invited SBTH the project of Mathias Schober and Thomas Herb to remix the main track ‚Rusu‘. We are glad to be able to offer their interpretation. Last but not least our label boss Sasse himself put his hands on ‚Serra‘.
We would now like to invite you to test Rafael Da Cruz’s new release with two stunning remixes.

Rex / Compost Black Label #130
Colognes finest Rafael Da Cruz is back for his second Compost Black Label after his debut last year with Renaissance. Dark and floating on Rex this time, with an incredible remix by Edgar Peng and an epic version from Andre Lodemann, that earned a lot of love from guys like Âme, Dixon, Sandrino and more over the last couple of weeks.
2015 was a good one for Rafael Da Cruz. He toured through South America, Thailand, India and Europe and played legendary spots like D-Edge, Warung and Watergate. With Right To Love he runs an own night in Cologne since almost three years in the well known and undisputed best club in town called Gewölbe. The story continues and this chapter is called Rex.

Compost Black Label # 118
Rafael Da Cruz’ DEBUT 12“ finally hits the streets, dipping into deeper, gloomier spheres of house. Soaring synths cleverly trim the bed of fat broad baselines. The Black 80s give the original a wicked analogue touch, with a splendid soulful vocal version as bonus track. Cosmic Cowboys and David Hasert supply two impressive remixes that both create a dark, but uniquely vibrant scenery and complete the package.
