Tresor meets Kanzleramt
Sat 26 September 2015 - 23:59

In 1994 when the dust was starting to settle from the Berlin wall’s disappearing act, the techno movement in Berlin and throughout the country was in full swing, and among the group on the top of the record production ladder was the innovation and cutting-edge of Heiko Laux’s excellent label Kanzleramt. Although the first album wasn’t released until 1998, the label had already gathered some exceptional and progressive talent, the list of which has grown to very impressive lengths over the years. Zipping up to the present: when Heiko released his last full-length “Fernweh” last year it had been eight years since his last release – an artist who takes his creative time while managing a legendary label. A returning guest in Tresor for the last 20+ years, tonight he brings to Kanzleramt’s table several prominent guests: Alexander Kowalski is another true Tresor pioneer and legendary live artist who also founded his own Damage Music label some years back, and whose “Response” album on Kanzleramt still garners critical praise; Rocco Caine is definitely an “art obsessed” producer/DJ, maybe one of the most art oriented in the German electro and techno scene. Never lacking in enthusiasm and perfectionism, he pushed himself to go a step further, deciding to learn about the techniques and technologies that go with the production of sounds and tunes on a professional level. Giving birth to an amazing and absolutely unique mastering technique that has become the Rocco Caine sound; and Alexander Lukat, who true fans of Tresor remember well enough as an original member of the Sender Berlin outfit, as DJ Luke behind the Globus decks for some legendary house nights – and tonight he’s back for a real stompin’ treat on the basement Tresor Floor. In Globus: back in 2010, Lando (a.k.a. Antaeus Lando Roy) relocated to Berlin, and the city has proven to be the perfect place for the native Californian to blossom. Strains of classic house, techno, acid, and electro have always coursed through his tracks, but the German capital has allowed Lando to filter his disparate influences through a distinct lens, one that favors pulsing basslines and trippy melodies. Getting sure footage in the best Berlin clubs, Lando has started up his own label, Myth Music, alongside fellow Berlin expat Aaron Castle (Hotflush, Boiler Room). The new imprint will begin with three releases from Lando himself, although future efforts for other labels are also in the works. Per Hammar, with Malmö in the south of Sweden as home base, is the captain behind his label Dirty Hands and the local club instance Kiloton. He’s got the dusty house to the right and the broken techno to the left. A quick jump on his Soundcloud entries reveals the satisfaction of bleak, hypnotic house that actually makes you feel rather warm – compelling stuff. Baron Castle is an Australian DJ based in Berlin. By day, backstage crew for Boiler Room, by night, impresario of the popular White Tiles events and lynchpin of Berlin’s DJ circuit, Castle has become a regular on A-list line-ups at premier clubs in the German capital. His unique style has boarders on the dubbier side of techno and house, with driving rhythms for late nights in Berlin, and still retaining a sense of melody and funk. Norman Methner is also on the decks: falling back on a broad spectrum of electronic dance music and modern club tracks, listeners of his DJ sets will be very likely to meet good old friends of disco, house, acid, Chicago & Detroit genres – keeping boredom far away and the floor moving.
