Tresor Meets Deep in the Box
Sat 16 November 2019 - 23:59

Tresor Club resident DJ Barbara Preisinger, who heads her own vinyl label Slice Of Life, presents her Deep In The Box evenings in Tresor once a month, whole nights of warm, kicking house and deep techno with cutting-edge international house DJs, something that fans of the night have come to thoroughly enjoy. From her hometown of Munich to success in Berlin, Barbara founded first the “scape”  label with Stefan Betke aka Pole and became a regular DJ in many Berlin clubs. Her passion is to play for the dancefloor, mixing kicking house and deep techno – often incorporating the music of many notable guest friends and artists. Barbara’s first guest is Lisandro Quezada aka DJ Qu, a New Jersey-based producer, DJ and Strength label boss who was referred to as “the dancer’s DJ” in Resident Advisor’s 2009 feature on the US east coast house renaissance, a title honestly earned, given his background as a world traveling house dancer and resident at New York’s esteemed HouseDanceConference. DJ Qu has been steadily reinforcing that description ever since, with a well-received run of rhythmic, dark, stripped-down productions for his Strength Music imprint. 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. Tresor Club resident Handmade‘s DJing is perfectly tuned to the Globus Floor’s wavelength: oscillating between house and techno styles, the dancing crowd in a firm grip, driven to fill the dancefloor. An integral part of the Tresor resident team since 2009, Handmade earned his stripes in the rocky terrain of the Berlin nightlife. Little by little he developed his pumping original mix of superior and timeless dance styles that have particularly influenced his experience. Handmade’s explosive trademark DJ style: deep and dubby-grounded á la Detroit, with the jacking stabs of Chicago influences and occasional deviations into tougher or soulful soundscapes. On the Tresor Floor: with each James Ruskin set on the basement decks of Tresor, we are reminded of the solid thread that ties our ideals and spectrum to this techno icon. Hot on the heels of the recent reissue of the Point 2 LP, we are proud to announce James Ruskin’s follow on our label, a new EP entitled Siklikal (Tresor.314). A muscular and dynamic EP, continuing his signature techno sound. Certainly some of Tresor Records’ most cutting-edge UK techno releases carry the Ruskin signature, a style he brought to the world’s attention back in the 90s and continues to mold. With his own Blueprint label James Ruskin created an internationally renowned platform for talented artists as well as numerous releases that stand on their own as prime examples of the genre. A hugely respected techno artist who celebrates the release of his new EP tonight. Oliver Ho is a prolific London, UK-based DJ/producer who debuted on James Ruskin’s Blueprint label in 1996. He founded his own label, Meta in 1997 and continued to develop his style towards a more dancefloor friendly brand of funky tribal techno, while retaining experimental elements and continuing to produce for other labels. Oliver Ho later set up a number of sublabels under Meta to cater for a widening repertoire of electronic styles, incorporating influences from jazz, funk, fusion, rock and avant garde styles of all kinds. Rebecca Goldberg returns a year after her last appearance in our home: inspired by Detroit’s State Theatre’s legendary “Club X” and by Stacey “Hotwaxx” Hale, the Godmother of House Music, who was reigning over the airwaves, it was only a matter of time before Rebecca would satiate her musical appetite as a disc jockey. Rebecca is now a seasoned radio DJ, having mixed on Detroit public radio station WDET 101.9’s Sunday Sessions show, 89.3 WHFR out of Dearborn, as well as various internet radio stations hosted in Detroit and worldwide. She holds down a few residencies for area dance nights and released her second EP of 2016 under the moniker 313 Acid Queen. Manuel Münster’s driving techno set is a solid support for this basement line-up. After acquiring regular gigs in Tresor Club, in 2013 he sharpened his musical profile by putting on his own club nights called “Escapism” in various locations throughout Berlin. The record label of the same name emerged in 2016 with the help of a friend, giving friends and artists who have played the party a platform to release their music. Staying true to Techno’s political dimension, Manuel‘s DJ-sets are reflecting his perception of the world surrounding him. While mostly bleak and repetitive, the groove is always the key element. It’s this focus that allows him to challenge audiences without ever losing touch.
