Tresor 26 Years. Part I
Fri 10 March 2017 - 23:59

With each passing year it becomes more and more of a joy to celebrate the founding of Tresor Club in Berlin, a ground-breaking moment in techno history, now 26 years years young – and kicking! In March 1991, like-minded electronic music heads from Berlin and around the world gathered in an abandoned department store treasury to carve out a new form of musical art: techno. Inspired by the Detroit masters, many of them shuttled between the Motor City and Berlin, creating masterpieces that were set on vinyl on the ensuing Tresor Records. Tonight  we are pleased to welcome some of our favorite artists for the celebration. DeepChord was originally a partnership of Rod Modell and Mike Schommer, but later became a solo project of Rod Modell. The sounds at work are predominantly those associated with dub-techno: dubby beats, crisp static, synthetic analogue grooves, and deep chords – think Basic Channel. No stranger to Tresor, we welcome back DeepChord tonight. Our friend Mike Huckaby also returns, a pioneer who has done much for Detroit electronic music. The man behind the once legendary Record Time store has gathered an encyclopedic knowledge of music. He is a person who can see beyond the hype and divisions within the scene. With numerous highly acclaimed deep house productions and remixes on internationally renowned labels, Mike Huckaby brings the Detroit sound of deep house and techno with him. Possessing all the roots and culture of electronic  dance music, he knows the balance between deep house and techno like no other. Binh has become almost synonymous with the sounds of modern underground Berlin; but it was the training the Düsseldorf native received throughout the country that allowed him to hone tastes and skills before arriving in the capital to claim a stake in its bustling music scene. Binh was able to quickly stand out from among the masses thanks to an extremely particular taste in music and sets overflowing with deep house and techno of the most refined variety, defined by subtlety and sprinkled with the delightfully unexpected. Jose Cabrera aka J.C. from Spain, debuting in Tresor on one of the Echoes nights, expresses a style of simple, raw, stripped down and hypnotic techno. In 2012, he started the AHD label together with his friend Damian Schwartz, and he produced his first EP for the Argentinian label Greener Records in the beginning of 2013. After several other innovative releases, J.C. joined the Tresor label family with his different blends in subtle electronics. In the Tresor family since the inception of the club and label, Juan Atkins’ influence on modern electronic club music is simply immeasurable, the epitome of the term “pioneer”: experimenting in an era where the ground was ripe for change, Juan Atkins’ top significance remains in the annals of electronic music history. Don’t miss this opportunity to catch his set tonight – a true Detroit techno hero. Tresor Records artist Marcelus is a DJ and producer from Paris, owner of Singular Records and a mixing master behind the Tresor decks. Marcelus‘ sets are consistently futuristic, arresting and always textural, and he is also releases on DJ Deep’s Deeply Rooted. We also welcome back budding Austrian talent Claudia Anderson, who has produced two stellar releases on Marcelus’ Singular Records, and our maverick techno producer, composer and DJ Pacou will compliment this line-up with one of his signature, powerful bangin sets.
