PAN-POT

Mobilee Records - Berlin (DE)

A 'pan-pot' is a simple, functional dial that governs the left and right axis of the stereo field, useful
but unremarkable; mobilee's Pan-Pot is an entirely different proposition, a duo whose mastery of
audio principles allows them to turn conventions on their heads, casting functionality aside as
they plumb the deep, uncharted depths of pitch-black techno.

Since their inception in 2005, Pan-Pot have become a dominant presence in modern
techno, an ascent mirrored in the rise of their home label mobilee records to the top tier of
electronic music. Tagging themselves as "the dark side of the force," Pan-Pot have melted minds,
warped perceptions and reinvigorated the dancefloor with their heady, unorthodox sound; within
their work, subtle pitch manipulations square off with wall-of-sound distortion, the dark stomp of
4/4 is tamed by intricate sound design, and minimalistic frameworks duel with throbbing bass
lines, epic builds, and murky, off-kilter melodies.

Tassilo Ippenberger and Thomas Benedix met at Berlin's SAE, and their studies in the production
and manipulation of sound aided them in identifying Pan-Pot's overarching sound aesthetic.
The duo booked Anja Schneider for an ill-fated party in 2005, but the unfortunate circumstances
helped forge a fortuitous connection with Schneider and her then-fledgling mobilee imprint.
Within weeks, mobilee's second ever release was Pan-Pot's official debut, „Copy and
Paste". The steady stream of original tracks and remixes that followed on mobilee and
Einmaleins, charted the duo's unwavering commitment to precise, undulating and kinetic grooves.

The defining moment of Pan-Pot's career came in 2007 with the release of their debut artist
album, Pan-O-Rama. The aptly named long-player offered a 360-degree view of techno at its
most twisted, balancing somber atmospherics with a lightness of touch, and spawning the
overground hit "Charly". More recently "Confronted" and "Captain My Captain" have
demonstrated their classic, strong and timely production style, presenting them as the most
consistent purveyors of techno around.

Pan-Pot are ceaselessly working and endlessly inventive. When not in the studio writing
original material or remixing tracks by a myriad of artists, they can be found on the road,
touring. Their DJ sets reveal a keen understanding of the dancefloor's needs, and they are
unconstrained by boundaries, traversing techno, house and everything in between.

Pan-Pot may have taken their name from an unexceptional element of studio equipment, but as
with their music, they have rewritten notions of form and function through their own idiosyncratic
language; once you've experienced Pan-Pot's colossal, haunting soundscapes you will never
forget them. Their vision, passion, and love of music continues to drive Pan-Pot — and the
extended mobilee team —in all that they continue to do, and all that will come.

JIMPSTER

Freerange Records / Systematic Recordings // Essex (UK)

Jamie Odell aka Jimpster and Audiomontage has been producing, remixing and DJing for the last 19 years and co- running his Freerange Records (voted Best British Label 2007) label for the last 15 of those. His musical upbringing and early introduction to production (his first release was on UK label Jumpin’ & Pumpin’ in 1990) and DJing have helped him forge a sound that is at once warm and deep as well as being innovative and also club friendly.

His seminal Jimpster LP Messages From The Hub (1997), as well as his more dancefloor orientated Audiomontage 12”s really helped establish Jamie as an artist of some merit and he quickly became in regular demand as a remixer (over 75 at the last count!) and co- producer on a wide range of underground projects. His third Jimpster LP Amour was released 4 years ago on Freerange to excellent critical acclaim and appeared in numerous published Top 20 LP's of the year charts. In recent years he has released his first original track for another label, choosing Ben Watt’s Buzzin’ Fly for Square Up which went on to become a big underground house track of the year.

His last 12” for Freerange was Sleeper, another deep house anthem which was nominated for numerous Best Dance Single Awards as well as sitting at the top of the Beatport charts for a month. Recent artists to get the Jimpster midas touch in the form of a remix include Josh Wink, Photon Inc, Osunlade, Bob Marley, Joris Voorn, Seal, Marc Romboy, Solomun.... The list goes on.

Over the past 5 or 6 years Jamie has built up a reputation as a highly regarded dj in the UK and around the world, having played over 100 gigs last year alone. With an emphasis on the deeper end of electronic house music, but not afraid to stray from the path, he retains an old school approach that has seen him booked for gigs as diverse as Fabric and Matter (London), Panarama Bar and Watergate (Berlin), Cielo (NYC), Warehouse 702 (Tokyo), Zoo Project (Ibiza), D-Edge (Sau Paulo), GOA @ Fabrik (Madrid).

WOUTER DE MOOR

OVUM / Pokerflat / Get Physical / Rejected // Amsterdam (NL)

You won’t find DE:MOOR on every possible (after) party, nor will you see him posting one Facebook status after another, talking about “amazing vibes” or “bomb tracks”. 

Most of his days are spent in a small room that is filled to the brim with (classic) drum machines, synthesizers, compressors, filters, and other sound toys. This is a habit he probably picked up from his mentor Steve Rachmad, Amsterdam’s number one techno pioneer. His preference for strong, pure sounds and an honest, artisanal approach to music also shows in his latest releases on Ovum and Pokerflat Recordings. ‘Lectures’, featuring some of Theo Parrish’s remarks about music, was cleared and endorsed by Mr. Parrish himself. 

As a DJ, Wouter walks the line between the techno from his roots, and more house oriented tracks, as long as the music satisfies his need for the pure and straight forward approach mentioned above. His schedule entails all of the Dutch circuit, spiked with excursions to Fabric London, Ibiza, Goa, South Korea, Belgium, and Berlin.

EDU IMBERNON

Suara / Eklektisch / Get Physical // Valencia (ES)

Sprouting from city of “valour” –Valencia– songwriter, producer, remixer, DJ and label owner, the multifaceted artist Edu Imbernon is turning into a truly global electronic music proposition.

Edu’s blend of electronica, house and indie has seen him release original music on institutions such as Bedrock and Get Physical, as well as newer pretenders Culprit and Suara over 2012 and 2013.

It was during the years 2008 and 2009 though, when Edu exploded onto the international electronic music landscape. Firstly, “El Baile Alemán” on Liebe Detail, produced with his friend Coyu was appointed “Best Underground Track of the Year” by Beatport. Secondly, his label Elektisch was born. Over the past 5 years, Edu has curated original music and remixes from the likes of Pleasurekraft, Blond:ish, Hot Since 82, Solomun and David August for the imprint, as well as close friends and newer talents Los Suruba, Sivesgaard and Dosem.

As a remixer, Edu comes into this own. His anthemic remix of The XX”s “Crystalised”, from their stratospheric “xx” album, proved to be Young Turks best selling remix to date. Follow up remixes of Maya Jane Coles’ “You” for Hypercolour and X-­?Press 2?s monster “Lazy” cemented him as a top tier remixer and sustained DJ support from the likes of John Digweed, Jamie Jones, Sasha, further cements his ascendancy towards the upper echelons.

From the lounge bars of Lebanon, forests of Brazil and the magic of Goa, all the way to the Miami bayfront for Ultra Music Festival, the open air madness of the Kings Day street party, Amsterdam, and the hallowed terrace of Space Ibiza, as resident; Edu’s truly global touring schedule continues to broaden.

The tastemaker clubs of Watergate, Berlin, Warung Beach Club & D-­?Edge, Brazil and fabric, London, have all laid host to Edu’s DJ talents, while his “Fayer” brand has taken root in his home town of Valencia and is set for sustained international exposure in 2014.

What does the future hold? Not content with having played 5 continents of the world in 2013, touring will take Edu from Montevideo, Lima and Sao Paulo, to Sydney, Bali and Cape Town, via his European strongholds of Berlin, London and Amsterdam. A debut artist album, live show and touring club brand are just some of things on the 2014 checklist for one of the most talented, hard working and gregarious artists in today’s electronic music scene.

DAVE VEGA

Exone / Memento Records / Sonido Records // Berlin (GER)

Dave Vega started DJing in the late '90s in Karlsruhe in the south of Germany. It was here that Vega and friends organized illegal techno parties at secret outdoor locations, with soundsystems so loud that people in other villages kilometers away could feel the bass. People would come from all over to party and would stay all day and all night. Inevitably these parties always led to fracases with the police...

After some years organising parties, Dave was bitten by the music bug and finally made the step from the dancefloor to the other side of the dj booth. In 2000, he moved to Frankfurt and began work as a music journalist. Later he met people like Ata and Heiko MSO who offered him work at their revered label empire, comprising Playhouse, Klang Elektronik and Ongaku. A residency in the famous Robert Johnson club soon followed, and Dave started to play all over the world. Over the years, he has played countless gigs in clubs like Berlin's Panorama Bar, Harry Klein and Rote Sonne in Munich, Rex Club in Paris, Nitza Club in Barcelona, Sugar Factory in Amsterdam, Space in Ibiza, and lately even a boat party in Honolulu, to list a few...

In 2007, Vega finally made the move to Berlin. Fueled by the energy of the city and a decade of DJing, he started producing his own music. Dave Vega released his first EP in March 2011 on the Berlin based label, Exone. His second EP was released on the Canadian label Thoughtless Music in May 2011, followed by another EP on Exone in the beginning of 2012. After that he released a bunch of remixes on different labels. Vega's roots have always been somewhere between House and Techno - that's what he plays and and still drives him after almost 15 years of electronic music experience.
