It's 2007. Techno music has already been around for 20 years now. With the
ongoing democratisation of music production facilities, it is no longer
necessary to use an expensive studio set up in order to produce records.
Due to this the amount of artists, labels and releases has never been
Nevertheless there are still artists, who manage to stand out and establish
themselves in this flood of techno music in all of it's genres and
The Bremen based producer Stephan Bodzin is a prime example. He has spent
many years as "the man behind the scenes" and has helped countless artists
to launch their successful careers. Then in 2006 he released his first solo
works and founded his label 'Herzblut', roughly translated as "blood from
the heart" or "commitment".
The euphoria that these tracks caused has been widespread and the list of
top-notch DJs who have freaked out to his music is endless. Stephan Bodzin
has created his very own and unique electronic sound, which combines club-
functionality and deep musical emotions in a very special way. The listener
is surprised each and every time. Keen melodies and an embossed and

There is no way to pigeonhole the Bodzin sound into one of the well-worn

The 11 tracks on the album, which will be released on CD as well as on a
self-confident triple-vinyl set, were produced within the last half year.
"Liebe Ist..." is the next logical step for a Stephan Bodzin now
concentrating on his own career for a change.
And on listening to this great album, you'll definitely want to
congratulate him on this decision!

be silent." (Victor Hugo).
