The name Paul Ritch echoes around the world. His productions and live sets, charged with pure adrenaline and characterised by his powerful, harmonic, and deep techno, have made him the holder of a unique mark of sounds in which his passion and power transmit numerous memorable music moments. In 2009 Paul brought to life his own label Quartz Rec, the label puts forward minimalistic sounds that are blunt, sharp and energetic. The label is a testament of the ability Paul has to achieve perfection. With his first release, “Split EP Part 1″ (Paul Ritch, 2008), he held the top 2 position in sales on Beatport, reaching over 11.000 downloads. Therefore, in 2009 Paul Ritch was nominated by Beatport as a candidate for best techno artist. Nowadays, the Paris resident Paul Ritch is considered to be one of the most highly regarded artists and producers in the global electronic scene. Paul is one of the protagonists of this year’s Cocoon Ibiza residency “Cocoon Heroes". He is playing at the Grand Closing Party as well as in Formentera, where Cocoon holds another smaller residency at the Tipic club. His live set on the Green Floor of Cocoon’s Green & Blue Open Air - one of the most prestigious electronic dance music open air events in Germany - is recorded and released on a single CD, in contrast to the previous Green & Blue CDs, which were double CDs with DJ mixes. As this is the 10th anniversary of the event and, at the same time, the last one, Paul’s live set can be called historical already!
