Press Release :
"Whow" - what a title for a record! Make sure to shout this out aloud! It will tell you much more about the nature of this album than words could... And what we have here in our hands truly is a premiere for the label, because for the very first time Unique Records releases a producer's album as a an entire artist feature with a total of 31 (!) tracks, containing a state-of-the-art electro DJ set and remix album / remixes collection on an awesome double cd - a musical tribute and hommage to the artist, producer, DJ - a true allrounder - Malente and his tremendously huge and fascinating creative output!

"Whow" is, in the entirety, an enthralling block rocking party soundtrack that fires up each floor for 150 minutes with the perfect fuel provided, mixed and remixed by Malente! CD1 In The Mix features six unreleased tracks and other rare and yet undiscovered versions of quality electro tunes, the remixes CD2 contains 5 previously unreleased interpretations / remixes of essential present & future club smashers all exclusively produced for the "Whow" album. 4 of those, namely Turntablerocker's "No Melody", Moonbootica's "We 1, 2 Rock", Mason's "When Farmers Attack" and Jabwai feat. Paige with "Sweet Like Shuga" will be released as a seperate 12inch Vinyl Abum Sampler (UNIQ134-1) so watch out for that bastard!

Everything else about Malente is now to follow:

Malente: a guy who has step by step and gradually become a leading figure amongst the younger generation of DJs without undergoing big hypes or buzzes. Since more than 8 years malente releases tracks for a club audience and beyond and plays an active role in the underground (dance) scene. In that sense malente has created his own personal brand and identity - as a brave man throughout and with an even better dj credibility within the club and underground world.

If you want to describe Malente's stilistic and musical development in one phrase then it can be no other than this one: originally having started with breaks he's now arrived in the straighter electro world and has created his very unique trademark as a dj and producer - and this honestly is not one of those stupid promotional slogans but an established and proven fact! After having released several 12's on Moonbootique (Moonbootica's label), Luscious Sounds (the label of german techno artist Azzido da Bass) and UK's Splank! records plus a total of four albums and innumerabel 12's on his home label Unique Malente has not just come up with his fifth album just like that but has created somethig very special fo all of us to share: "Whow".

For as long as he has been producing music, Malente has been DJing and traveling around the globe. He has played on festivals like Shambalah (Canada), Good Vibrations & Field Day (Australia), Sziget (Hungary), Nature One, Loveparade, Melt! (Gemany) and rocked clubs like the legendary Cocoon (Frankurt), Watergate (Berlin), Neidklub (Hamburg), Antenna (San Francisco), BedSupperClub (Bangkok), Chinese Laudry (Sydney), Nitsa (Barcelona), Sugarfactory (Amsterdam), Hi-Fi (Calgary), Rock City (Novosibirsk) with his tough Electro Sets. "Whow's" In The Mix CD1 demonstrates why Malente is such a sought-after jockey. Containing rare, unreleased and exclusively produced tracks and remixes of artists like Eyerer & Chopstick feat. Zdar, Rinocerose, Yuksek, Claude Von Stroke, The Subs, Speaker Junk, The Aston Shuffle, Teenage Bad Girl, Boy 8-Bit, Acid Jacks, Philipe De Boyar, Touché, Jaimie Fanatic, Mascotte, Markus Lange & Daniel Dexter the CD is just a perfect example of Malente's energetic and positive DJ-sets!

Ever since releasing his own tracks, Malente has been remixing other artists music and repertoire, including Bob Sinclar (2001), Coburn (2007), Louie Austen (2005), DJ Friction (2004), Bleach Eatin Pimps (2007), Phonat (2007) and Shout Out Out Out Out (2006). The Remixes CD2 on "Whow" not only features his best remixes between 2001 and 2007, Malente also produced five exclusive tracks for that collection! Just too bad that other great works and remixes for artists such as Freddy Fresh, Der Plan, Groove Rebels couldn't be featured no more...
