Niki B & Christian E.F.F.E. - Caustic Heaven Mix

After several releases on labels such as Saw Recordings, Mantra Smyle, Swift Records, CP Recordings and others, the Italian duo consisting in Niki B & Christian E.F.F.E. brace up to build their first mix CD which will be released on the Italian record label Mantra Smile. The mix CD is available exclusive on and gathers no more than 10 tracks, most of it being produced by these two DJs and producers.

The mix starts up with the guys from Argy, and a track released on the acclaimed underground label Poker Flat, tune called Poke Her Flat . After this excellent beginning, the set continues with a massive tech-house track combined with some dirty synths of electro, which is the Niki B & Christian E.F.F.E. remix for FBY and Lust. Banging beats with a smooth techno vibe, the track introduces a male vocal with a very fruitful effect on the mix. Going into a more electro area, the next track is a dub mix for SPY and So Far So Fast, combined with a heavy kick pattern of technetic breaks. With each new track, the mix develops new atmospheres, like the next track, probably the best from this compilation. Thomas Shumacher and the track Brut Royal adds up some very spicy techno beats to the set, providing a crazy rhythm with an electronic bass line. Very special, indeed. From this moment, it's time for Mantra Smile to intervene with all of the tracks in order to complete the mix. After the electro production from Niki B & Christian E.F.F.E. called Sweat, it's time for another two which have been released on a 12" package on Mantra Smile. These tracks are Werk and after that Massages, two techno banging tunes. The atmosphere goes up and down with each new track inserted, but when Maskio and the track Animal Funktions make his appearance, the vibe intensifies and goes to a massive acme. Pure electronic beats with heavy techno rhythms. The techy mix from Niki B & Christian E.F.F.E.'s Move your Body brings some acid house with a storm of synths and techno beats. It is the track 4 Ur Mind that closes this mix with another powerful series of crazy electric synths and dance floor rhythm.

If anybody saw these two guys in a DJ chart don't hesitate to search for their music, because its getting better and better, with each new release. With massive potential and a wise taste for dance floor music, Niki B & Christian E.F.F.E., better known in Italy as Sonar for a while ago, tried to make through this mix CD an incursion in their music, in their own tracks that received very good reactions. This mix CD represents the pick of their music, and also some artists that they never hesitated to play, always "caustic" as the title suggests. This should be a challenge not only for Mantra Smile but also for the online record store
