BPITCH x TRESOR
Fri 29 December 2017 - 23:59

BPitch founder and veteran Berlin artist Ellen Allien makes a guest appearance in the basement tonight. Ellen Allien is shaping, supporting, stimulating, forming and foremost moving to the electronic music universe. She is famous for her eclectic DJ set´s, where she combines perfectly a wide range of styles. Over the years and since founding BPitch in 1999, she has built a formidable reputation, a huge artistic output that is celebrated all over the world and has even been performed at temples of modern art such as the Centre Pompidou in Paris. As an extraordinary creature and a one-of-a- kind artist, Ellen Allien shaped and is shaping Berlin’s vibrant electronic club landscape as well as the global electronic music culture, to which she is dancing – all day and all night long. DJ T-1000 aka Alan Oldham is no stranger to Tresor, nor to the Tresor label on which he has released “Jetset Lovelife EP” and the full-length “Progress”. Originally from Detroit, Oldham was at one time a member of UR, moved to Chicago and eventually made Berlin his home. His talent as a graphic designer for the electronic music industry is world-renowned, he founded his own label Pure Sonik, and has toured the world with his own no-nonsense brand of bangin’, funky techno, either as DJ T-1000 or as his moniker Detroitrocketsicience. A longtime Tresor friend and techno chameleon on the Tresor decks. We also welcome back Munich artists Dario and Marco Zenker aka the Zenker Brothers, who founded Ilian Tape in 2007 together with Mueller. Dario & Marco are responsible for the musical part, while Mueller does all the graphic work. The label has picked up substantial international artists and it’s always a pleasure to have them back in our home. The Zenker Brothers notorious B2B sets are rooted in the legacy of Detroit and Techno, House, Dub, Rap Music and Breakbeats, and the two brothers have managed to define their own trademark sound over the years with their own productions. In Globus, Detroitrocketsicience has spawned an acclaimed series of sci-fi inspired 10-inch releases and an all-digital DJ set-up that is more streamlined and modernistic than the old-school vinyl approach. Tonight you can get a good serving of “Electronic music transmitted from high Earth orbit above Neo-Detroit.” Serge is the owner and founder of Clone records, a long-running techno label with an array of international artists. Since the early 90s he has been one of the influential Dutch underground DJs and and is well known for his versatile DJ sets and the shit-hot records he is playing. Serge is one of those DJs who doesn’t care about trends or hypes and just plays some great music ranging from house, techno, disco and electro. Operating in the abstract regions of techno and coming from a visual (fashion) background, Marco Shuttle has carved out his own little niche in recent years. Releasing on outlets such as Time To Express, The Bunker and Clone, Marco Shuttle’s journeying techno sound is very detailed and organic, and as such has turned the heads of those in the know. As a DJ he is just as considered, never doing anything just because, but instead focusing on form and function in equal measure. Marco Shuttle, then, as boss of his own Eerie label, makes and mixes together music that is exactly that.
