“Where the power of words ends, the music begins.”
Following that credo, German producers Matthias Baumann and Roland Geringer launched the progressive trance act CRESSIDA in 2005. Their special sound, which combines highly emotional and deep melodies with distinct grooves and drive, gained the duo instant recognition for their tracks and remixes which have been released on labels like Lost Language, Baroque Records, Afterglow, Ava Recordings, Somatic Sense, Alter Ego Records and Enhanced Records, only to name a few.
Due to a lack of time, Roland had to take a break in 2008, but Matthias continued with the project Cressida. In that year, the track “6AM” on the well established German label Euphonic Records hit the nail on the head with its beautiful melody and the amazing club interpretation by Euphonic label owners Kyau & Albert. The track still holds the record as highest charting trance track and was the best selling trance single of the year 2008 on beatport.com. It also won the beatport award for "best trance track" and was featured on the well-known compilation “In Search of Sunrise” by DJ Tiesto.
The follow up EPs to 6AM, “Never Mind Onyric” and “Two-O-Ten”, were equally succesful, as they were picked up again by all the major players.
In 2010, Matthias teamed up with the Swiss producer Michel Lüchinger, the wizard behind projects like Reminder, Josh Green, Green & Falkner. Their first collaborations “Cressida & Reminder – Lucid” and “Pillowfight” on Afterglow Records were big clubtracks in 2010 and again recieved support by all the big djs you can name. Michel also runs the new label tool records, where Matthias leads the A&R department, trying to give new and established producers a plattform to release high quality dance music and share something of the knowledge he gathered during the past 12 years in the scene.
2011 saw the succesful release of Cressida´s first big vocal single “Heart on my sleeve” together with US based singer Roxanne Barton. Further releases included “Origami” and “Kibo” on tool trance records, the second track being a charity project for the victims of the Japanese Tsunami catastrophe.
Cressida also did 2 important collaborations this year, one with german trance star Ronski Speed called “Glueck”, which is the german word for happiness, and another with shooting star Steve Brian, called “Cambodia”.
Besides being busier than ever in the studio, Cressida continues to tour the globe as a dj act, showcasing his energy and passion behind the decks all over the world.
Keep a eye out for the forthcoming new vocal tracks with Natalie Peris and Roxanne Barton, as well as new collaborations with Reminder and Steve Brian!
