Scion are Peter Kuschnereit and René Löwe. The first release of Scion was called „Emerge“ in 1995 on the label Chain Reaction. At that time both worked also on their projects Vainqueur (René) and Substance (Peter). Peter Kuschnereit, born in Berlin in 1970, has grown up in a historical quarter of the city: Kreuzberg. He still lives and works there. In 1991 he started to work at the legendary record store Hard Wax. Both members draw inspiration from the first generation of artists in Chicago and Detroit and above all, from the productions of their pre-eminent house neighbours: Basic Channel.
