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 to celebrate 29 years of our label this month. Oscar Mulero‘s DJ career has been as prolific and long lasting as the evolution of dance music. As a key figure in its development, Oscar has always absorbed new trends and kept his finger on the pulse of electronic dance music, from the end of the 80’s right up to the present day, representing Iberian techno’s proper place in the genre. It is impossible to understand his genius without taking into account the tireless work Oscar Mulero has carried out behind the decks for over two decades. He runs his very own Warm Up imprint since 2000, the PoleGroup Records label since 2004, as well as a member of our Tresor Records family. Joseph Bianchi aka End Train has been heavily involved in the free parties scene for years, playing 250+ bpm distorted hardcore industrial during timeless sets. With time, an almost innate passion for techno built up and shaped the artist’s own vision. Whether he is playing with 4 decks and his sampler or his 2 hour live set with synths and a coffee machine, End Train’s music stretches the boundaries of techno with melancholic melodies and fast paced drums. Together with Flaminia he founded Ways to Die records and Metempsychosis records in 2015 and 2017 respectively, to promote techno in various shapes and form from industrial to deep and broken. Tresor resident Mischa rounds out the Tresor Floor line-up, a product of shifting technological landscapes. Nurtured by computerized machine music through radio waves from the hardcore continuum, he has developed a distinctly futurist vision for uncompromising techno music. Born in Berlin, Mischa inevitably found the legendary Hard Wax as a main educator in taste, and has worked there since 2010. In Globus: A frequent guest in our home and now Berlin-based Derek Plaslaiko quietly paid his dues on Detroit’s rave circuit from his nearby hometown, and quickly earned a reputation for forward thinking DJ sets that were clinical, sophisticated and extremely sensual. This combination resulted in a residency for Family, the weekly party at Detroit’s legendary Motor. Some will know Derek Plaslaiko as a favorite of the mid-90s Detroit warehouse scene, which lead to a personal invite from Carl Craig to appear at the inaugural Detroit Electronic Music Festival in 2000. His near decade-long residency at New York’s Bunker parties garnered him “Best Techno Party DJ” by the Village Voice in 2006. Marc Schneider is an influential DJ and producer from Hamburg who has never missed any major development or pivotal release in quality dance music. Marc Schneider can flex is DJ muscles in so many different ways and sensibly guide the crowd through a tasteful and kicking mixture of all things house and techno. 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.
