Citizen Kain ft. Morgane Zéha - The Way
The label BluFin, founded by Andrea Engels in 2005, has managed to establish its good reputation. Ms. Engels, a native from Cologne, has been working with music for years already. As the former owner of the well known record-shop Musicman in the urban area of Cologne’s Südstadt, she has been able to build up some wide network of contacts in the music business. Her open approach to the diversity of music genres very much stems from that time. BluFin as well as its sublabels Yellow Tail Records, Takt and Greenhorn Records (together with Namito ) very much reflect this openess of hers. Generally, all three platforms are concerned with electronic music, they are however not limited to the genre. What matters is the distinct selection! Although many good demo tapes are regularly being sent to BluFin, only approximately one new record per month is being released which is handled with full attention accordingly.
An important aspect of the philosophy of the label is its familiar approach in creating a good atmosphere of collaboration. For a serveral years already highly renowned artist keep releasing tracks at BluFin or Yellow Tail.
Tobias Lützenkirchen, who made the first release for the label, John Acquaviva, Citizen Kain, Spektre, Maverickz, Da Fresh , Kaiser Souzai and many other known acts keep using the label as their familiar homebase. They contribute to the relevance of the label in the Techno-House segment! Hits such as ‘Zombie’ of Acquaviva & Lützenkirchen in the year 2005 (No 1 beatport , 2 nd best selling track of the year) or ‘Freak Me’ of LXR vs Andrea Doria of the year 2006 (Top 10 all over, big Radio One Player, signed to Gut Instinct UK/News etc.)
