(Cocoon, Border Community, Traum Schallplatten)
“Arne Schaffhausen and Wayan Raabe have been engaged in electronic music since the beginning of the ’90s and they still continue succeeding in maxing out this music’s latitude, shaping their very own and unique style that can hardly be assigned to one of the established subcategories of modern electronic dance music. James Holden released the first Extrawelt single on his label Border Community, kicking off a matchless wave of success that lasts until today without ever being close to a gain sell-out-status in the scene. The readers of the two most renowned magazines for electronic music in Germany, ‘Groove’ and ‘Raveline’ voted their album “Schöne Neue Extrawelt” Best Album 2008. Reader’s poll of the „Faze”, Germany’s magazine with the highest circulation voted them in 2014 in the pole position in the category Best Live Act. Countless records and remixes sold as well as equally countless live gigs in the best clubs and festivals worldwide from New York via Berlin to Tokyo, Rio and Moscow speak a clear language: Extrawelt are reaching their audience despite – or probably just because of – their obstinacy.
2015 will not only be the year of new achievements, more releases and remixes, but it will also be the year of more live performances right in the vein of being what Extrawelt is all about – being true to themselves and their idea of sound.”
