The Vinyl Factory are pleased to unveil this beautifully crafted limited edition from one of the world's leading electronic music artists, Hamburg-based producer Tensnake, the man responsible for the biggest underground crossover dance tune of 2010, the omnipresent 'Coma Cat', and a string of critically acclaimed remixes for Aloe Blacc, Hercules And Love Affair and Azari & III alike.

Meticulously hand-crafted by the world-renowned Dutch design company Droog for the German electronic musician and featuring 2 exclusive new Tensnake tracks plus 3 exclusive edits and a bonus mix CD, this beautiful limited edition is a unique proposition.

“Because it’s been designed by Droog, it really does look amazing,” says Tensnake, aka Marco Niemerski.  “Lone, Jas Shaw from Simian Mobile Disco and myself have all reworked tracks. We’re calling it Tensnake Live + but you’ll have to be quick as we’re only releasing 1,000 copies worldwide!”

In addition to the bespoke Droog artwork throughout the package, Tensnake Live + also features 2 brand new Tensnake productions – ‘You Know I Know It’ and ‘Something About You’. Also featuring previously unreleased edits from Tensnake, Jas Shaw from Simian Mobile Disco and fellow pioneering electronic producer Lone, this is a must for any discerning collector.

Created using a Bespoke paper cut sleeve containing 2 x 180-gram vinyl records, the limited edition comes complete with a CD featuring an exclusive Tensnake live mix comprising further exclusive re-edits and new versions of previous Tensnake tracks and remixes.

“Adored by everyone from lovers of 4/4 floor-quakers to the quirkiest exponents of dubstep…. if you like the idea of Grace Jones's My Jamaican Guy at the Paradise Garage with added Chicagoan propulsion, you'll love Tensnake.”
Band Of The Day, Guardian.co.uk


“Playlisted on BBC Radio 1, featured in The Guardian and NME, festival darling, Ibiza darling, North American tour, Tensnake has become a reference point for dance floor smiles and sing-alongs, good vibrations which have evidently earned him some karma points.”
Resident Advisor

“Having united club-land across the world all summer long, Tensnake’s ‘Coma Cat’ is our number one tune of the year – and the best is yet to get!”
Mixmag

“One of the future stars of dance making a new style of disco and 80s boogie-influenced house music. ‘Holding Back My Love’ and ‘Coma Cat’ have put Tensnake and the output from his Mirau label on the map.”
DJ Magazine

“Sumptuously warm melodies, interwoven with bountiful rococo grooves best served with a Piña Colada while the sun sets on one of those languid summer days at the beach.”

He gave us the biggest underground crossover dance tune of 2010 in 'Coma Cat', a killer DJ compilation and a string of critically acclaimed remixes for Aloe Blacc, Hercules And Love Affair and Azari & III alike. And now Tensnake arrives with this beautiful limited edition release.

Meticulously hand-crafted by the world-renowned Dutch design company Droog for the German electronic musician, this hand-numbered edition is a unique music product that celebrates his unique sound.

Born in 1975 and raised on a diet of disco, soul, boogie and funk, Marco Niemerski started his musical journey listening to pop stars like Simple Minds and Duran Duran on the radio. “I grew up in the suburbs where there was nothing to do except listen to music so the radio was the most exciting thing around me. But my older brother was into D*Train, Shalamar, Raura and other boogie stuff. I was maybe ten – there it is again! But later I listened to everything. When I was 16, I would drive my Vespa and listening to stuff like The Who and The Small Faces, the UK sound. But then I came back to electronic music…”   

But where did the music come from? Well, it was while working at a music promotion company called Public Propaganda that Marco started producing. His first purchases were a Yamaha SY85 and a Roland Juno 106. “It was the first step towards something and I tried to recreate the sound I liked – that’s how it always starts." Ever the perfectionist, Marco made music as a hobby for several summer seasons.  “Many years later, I started the Mirau label with two friends,” he says. "The first record was ‘Around The House’ was a part of The Restless EP, the third Mirau release. “I did it in one night and it felt like a lucky strike. But in 2006 , I was surrounded by the minimal sound and it was so boring. I was inspired by Metro Area who included tiny disco sounds and combined that with house music – that’s what kept drawing me back."

Since then he's never looked back and thanks to 'Coma Cat' and a killer live show that showcases his distinctive sound, 2010 was a major turning point career-wise for Tensnake. Fast-forward one year and he's ready for the next step. As a live artist, Tensnake wanted to follow his Defected - In The House DJ mix with a unique live offering and a new single, the as-yet unreleased fan favourite from his show, ‘Something About You’, which is where the Tensnake Live + limited edition comes in.
