The compilation "Get Together" enters a new round and gathers four artists to take a journey into electronic music together again. After the vinyl release with the original tracks by Maxie König, Dip, Ana Antonova and Cie, four remixers are joining the Get Together to interpret the music in a new way: Eddy Romero, Mar io, Eric Louis and Cie. Cie starts with the remix of "TenTen" and creates immediately a big groove with big basses, chords and illuminative sound waves, which leads us directly to the dancefloor. With Eddy Romero we then float into the dub techno air with the "Dezest" remix, and inventive chords and percussion sounds ensure a fantastic flight. It's like floating on clouds with the glittering strings and jazzy melodies that Mar io conjures up in his remix of "Naked Neighbour". The beat keeps pushing forward, where Eric Louis seamlessly picks up with his interpretation of "Haus Im Turm". The deep beat and the dubbed chords form a great conclusion to this wonderful journey that you want to embark on again and again.

Form & Terra's lighthouse sends thirteen highlights to all seafarers of electronic music, who will discover many musical treasures in this release, from a gentle, groovy breeze to a roaring Techno thunderstorm. With "Dubline" Markus Funke lets the sea shine with dubbed chords and deep basses, the brilliance of which Ucleden continues wonderfully and goes one step deeper. "When Breathing Starts" is the appropriate title, and it's pulsating also with the Cologne improvisation collective Drehkommando, who put the focus on deep groove with the track "Freedom is just a word", which was created during one of their live performances. The groove is also very big in Ana Antonova's versatile and wonderful detailed track "Poccito". A fresh breeze is blowing up and Peter F. Spiess once again proves his extraordinary remix skills and interprets the opener track with gentle strings and sparkling melodies. But now come a storm and Tim Susa provides high sound waves and a techno thunderstorm with his driving "Mudfighter". Sound flashes light up the sky and Mar io is in the eye of the techno storm with his track "All I Can Get". Also Cie and Stephan Eul like to play with high waves on "Equality" until minimal house comes on board with Gunman's "Stable". With "Feeling" by Chris Maico Schmidt and Noah Levin, the sails shredded by the storm are loosely fluffed together again and set anew with floating harmonies. The sun comes out and glitters on the calm sea, and November Reign with "Am Eisernen Steg" also know how to conjure up a good surge of endorphins. Land is in sight and everyone on board can now relax with Multiple Noise's wonderfully groovy chilled "Rapid Eye Movement" and enjoy the rest of the journey. Finally, Eric Svensen leads us experimentally, but solidly and safely back to the home port: "Flying to Planet E". It's full speed ahead with these thirteen wonderful tracks!

Cie - Adventures Remixes


Release January 2022! Out now! Please find it here:

After the successful vinyl release "Adventures" by Cie, six musical companions embark on a journey, to find the places described by Cie and to rediscover them in their very own way.
Maxie König is the first to start and is reconstructing the "Löwenburg" into a wonderful, deep groove cathedral, the foundation of which consists of a powerful bass on which wonderful chords spiral upwards. The foundation is then properly checked for stability when Mar io presents his captivating and driving version of "Bergfried". Refined with his unmistakable handwriting, you are drawn in as if in a suction and cannot escape. There is only the way out deeper into the "Stollen" of Chris Maico Schmidt. Here you can experience percussive fireworks, the catchy melody of which lingers for a long time in the winding corridors of the gallery. Pyrococcus picks up these melodies and returns to the "Löwenburg" with a pounding base drum and creates access to unknown spaces with its novel composition. Here M.Sylvia waits and returns to the driving origin of the "Bergfried". The brickwork here looks raw, dry, dusty and technoid, just as it should be at a late hour. At the end it goes deep into the "Stollen" again, where Tim Susa takes us into deep, ramified chord corridors.
Six wonderful tracks ready for any adventure.

Cie & Mar io - Coastal City


Out now! Please find it here:

After the successful debut "Heartland" the synthesizers of Cie and Mar io glowed again to produce more tracks under the joint project. Right in time for summer, the "Sunset Mix" first appears on the horizon, and the name says it all. Sublime, long chords with beautiful melodies are forming the warm sand in which one would like to linger for a long time. A soulful track that should be listened to especially open air on the beach.
Barbaros then invites you to dance on the promenade with thick beats. The evening is ushered in here and the day fades into the background. Relaxed grooves, percussions, pads and basses take over and your legs just do not want to stand still anymore. We stroll on to the first bars when the typically groovy sound of Gunman reaches us. Here it becomes South American, the shakers rattle and the groove sweeps everyone away. This is where the essence of the "Coastal City" really comes into its own. When it has long been dark we move on and between two houses we discover a vaulted cellar. Cie and Mar io are currently playing their "Original Jam Mix" here. Reduced to the essentials, the track stomps off and paralyzes the stop button on the sequencer, because it is still played live here.
Four tracks for everyone who is looking for the beautiful, musical side of summer.

V/A - Treasures


Out now! Please find it here:

Precious and unexpected musical treasures could be found at the lighthouse of Form & Terra Records: The treasure chest "Treasures" contains new versions of our previously released vinyl records. The first find comes from Mar io's studio and is reissuing Cie's first publication on Form & Terra Records. "Auf Los" shines in a new guise and suddenly comes across as shimmering trance. The track reflects the atmosphere and warmth of the original by Cie from his eponymous EP and goes beyond genre boundaries. An incredibly groovy acid pearl is waiting for the treasure hunter immediately afterwards. Zweig puts his unmistakable signature on Mar io's "We're Living For" with the remix. Turn fog and strobe on! Since the treasure chest contains a number of pearls, a new version of "Through the Night" should not be missing, which is fittingly contributed by Mar io himself. Here, a groovy Acid House baseline combines with familiar elements from the original to create a sizzling mixture that could hardly taste better. Peter F. Spiess has also created a new version and has mixed a good portion of dub into the oats of his "Celluloid Pony". He rides far into unimagined worlds and does not forget his strikingly minimal melodies, which made the original from the record "Get Together" (formnterra003) so successful. A very deep remix of Prakash's "Numbers Talk" by Maxie König sparkles at the treasure hunter as a final treasure. The track has a strong unique groove and the chords and strings of the original, which is also released on the vinyl "Get Together", are placed in a pulsating new context. Five wonderful tracks for all treasure hunters eager to discover on the dance floor.

Cie & Mar io - Heartland


Out now, November 19th! Please find it here:

Cie and Mar io, the artists of the first two releases on Form & Terra Records, have known each other for over twenty years, but the previous musical collaboration has been limited to mutual remixes. While jamming together, the idea developed to work on new tracks together. The nights in the studio were long, the sequencers and synthesizers were running hot and "Heartland" as the first joint EP of the two artists was gradually formed. "Heartland" is down-to-earth, dust-dry but irresistibly groovy and the original mix transfers the heat of the night to the dance floor with a lot of power and fire. After these fireworks the dance floor can also jump straight into the "Starland Mix": wonderful synthesizer sounds take you into the deep, glittering spheres of the sky without having to think about the way back. There the immensely driving groove of "Cursed Toms" is already waiting to bring everyone back to the ground. The track grabs like a suction and immediately draws everyone deeper and deeper into the dance. Then Zweig shows "Heartland" from a bird's eye view with his remix and sets wonderful melodic accents in his happy, light flight, which conveys the feeling of freedom with its fine melodies. The darker side of "Heartland", on the other hand, is hypnotic and driving: M. Sylvia's "Chicago Remix" is a first-class sound storm and leads deeper and deeper into the hidden corners of a dark club. M. Sylvia thus provides a strong exclamation mark at the end of this EP!

After the successful vinyl release "Get Together", the journey through the fantastic soundscapes is now being continued digitally. The four original travel diaries by Peter F. Spiess, Cie, Prakash and Markus Funke are updated in a unique way by the remixers Mar io, November Reign, TIS and Cie.
The journey begins with Mar io's remix of "Celluloid Pony", which is fed with its unique lines and sounds. The pony is saddled again and rides towards the sea with a boost of new energy. There the Dub Techno monster "Levissima" rises from the depths to shake the dance floors. November Reigns Remix bursts its bonds with his driving beat and the cleverly used dub elements. This is where TIS comes in, with his remix of "Wolkenburg" floating loosely and lightly through the atmosphere and weaving his style with the elements of the original. On the last stage, Cie creates melodies, pads and pounding beats in his remix of "Numbers Talk" to push the flight to a new dimension and to usher the final of this fantastic trip.

After the strong vinyl release "Through The Night", there is now Mar io's often missed original version of the vinyl remix "We're living for" by Patrick Lindsey. In addition, there are four more outstanding and versatile remixes, so that a completely new EP has emerged, which now complements and completes the vinyl release in digital form.
Cie begins with his version of "We're living for", which picks up on the melodic aspects of the original and transforms them to a smooth, groovy level. Afterwards Ucleden parties hard with his version of "Through The Night" and with its irresistible beat he transforms the dance floor into an earthquake area. Mar io himself delivers the soundtrack for the afterparty with his new "Morning Mix" version and finally there is a special track: Peter F. Spiess was inspired by the second vinyl release of Form & Terra, so that he produced a wonderfully independent, detailed and playful electro version of "Through The Night", which completes the EP perfectly.
