Longtime Tresor artist Regis released on Tresor Records under his alias Karl O’Connor. “Against Nature” with fellow artist terrorist Peter Sutton (Female) in 2000 was a a maverick stroke (Tresor.147) at the turn of the millenium. Regis has a greater mythology surrounding the influential Downwards label that he has run with Peter since 1993. Each time he returns to our home it is a special treat, and we welcome him back for his first Tresor gig of 2019. Returning to our home with his terrific live act, Mark Verbos is a techno producer and DJ since the early 1990s. After completing a degree in recording from Florida’s Full Sail in 1995, Mark became a recording engineer in Chicago. At StudioChicago Mark Verbos worked with legends of house music including Mike Dunn, Ralphie Rosario, Vince Lawrence, Farley, Braxton Holmes, and many more. In 1999 he founded Simple Answer, lived in Berlin from 2000 to 2003 and eventually founded Verbos Electronics, a modular synthesizer company. After more than two decades Pacou has continued to express himself as a powerful and highly influential architect of the genre, releasing timeless albums on the Tresor label as well as his own Caché imprint. Never compromising, always genuine and creative within the expanse of the genre, Pacou is a Berlin techno veteran who keeps it real and the experience is terrific. Tonight the maverick turntablist takes us down a unique techno path again, with excellent support from Tresor techno resident Marcel Heese. In Globus: Restoration founders Marieu and Lucretio, both solo and as the The Analogue Cops, or as their moniker Xenogears, return for another great night in Globus. Their label is a manifesto of their purposes: to provide to the dancefloors solid analogue fat sounds not following the trends but always digging deep into their roots with the eyes on the future. The Analogue Cops are true defenders of vinyl and the worst enemies of digital downloads; from 4 years they have been resisting in Berlin, where they had already imposed their message: techno that comes from Chicago House music, from Larry Levan´s disco, from George Clinton’s funk, from Miles Davis´s jazz; in a few words, uptempo danceable R&B music. Actually Lucretio and Marieu are pledged in a more dub and deep house oriented project, but always deeply influenced by their passion for american music. In Globus: Johannes Volk is a producer, DJ and also label owner of Exploration Records, and whose sets combine an open minded, raw and hypnotic techno sound. His first record was released on none other than Jeff Mills’s Axis Records in 2006, followed by a series of vinyl releases on other labels including Patrice Scott’s Sistrum and Steffi’s Dolly imprint. As a DJ, Johannes’s depth of knowledge and ear for a groove is rivaled by few, and tonight we welcome his terrific turntable set. Johanna Knutsson caught the music bug in 2008, she promptly moved to Berlin from her native Sweden, signed to independent Berlin-based label, Klasse Recordings. A passion for 80s disco, house, hi hats and handclaps inspired 2 dance floor killing edits of Imagination’s “So Good So Right” and thumbs up from fans. Apart from producing music and playing records in and outside Berlin, Johanna Knutsson founded the vinyl only cult label Zodiac 44 w. Luca Lozano and UFO Station Recordings w. Hans Berg, where the two of them release their own productions.
