ROLF Ellmer has been exemplary in his contribution to dance music.
Standing the test of time under an array of monikers Jam El Mar, Jam and Spoon with the late, great Mark Spoon and of course Storm.
The seminal 90s track Storm by Storm has had new life breathed into it for modern dance floors by Irish techno hero Rebūke and is out now.
We caught up with Storm and he told us: “Rebūke‘s rework on ‘Storm’ represents the perfect melange of the presence and the roots of Techno! If you want to set a floor on fire, this one’s for you!"
Hailing from Ireland, Rebūke has developed global appeal with a unique sound that blends techno, loger, 90s rave and more. His evolving production has seen him rack millions of streams, collaborating with the likes of CamelPhat and Alan Fitzpatrick, earning loyal support from BBC Radio 1 whilst consistently landing releases in the Beatport Top 10 Chart. His breakthrough release Along Came Polly via Hot Creations secured the no.1 spot on Beatport, whilst most recently his Wasp EP on Adam Beyer’s Drumcode marked his most accomplished EP to date with support from Pete Tong, Carl Cox and Adam himself following the previous success of his Obscurity and Rattle EPs.
Rolf aka Storm also took the time to talk us through an amazing selection of dance music for the weekend including the new rework of Storm by Rebūke.
Rebūke vs Storm – Storm
An on-spot remake by Rebūke of the original from 1996 I did with Mark Spoon! The vibe from the original is greatly kept and lives on!
Rebūke – Rattle
That track really brought Rebuke into my focus! A unique lead sound that made Rebuke stand out from others combined with a pushing Techno groove – banger!
Jam & Spoon – Follow Me (Thomas Schumacher Remix)
Thomas blew new life into our early nineties track “Follow Me” and made it available for the contemporary dance floor.
Jam & Spoon – Right In The Night (Balthazar & Jack Rock Remix)
Another great example of an amazing reconstruction of our biggest worldwide hit. Suits every dance floor!
The Age Of Love – The Age Of Love (Watch Out For Stella Remix)
Mark Spoon and myself dropped the remix back in the early nineties. If nothing works on the floor, this track will do the job!
The House Of House – Cherrymoon Trax (Jam El Mar Remix)
I received the honor of remixing this very track that became a classic of Techno. Always a goer and sets the floor on fire!
Michael Klein – Yuzu
I loved the track from the first moment I heard it. The sequence will hypnotize every person in the room – pure fire!
Jam El Mar – EVO
The first release on my very own label Jam El Mar REC that carries the vibe from the early nineties into the present.
Sam Paganini – Rave
This track will never die. If you want to put class into your set this can’t be missed!
Bart Skils, Weska – Shades Of Summer
Driving and atmospheric at the same time. This track will be among my favorites for a long time!
