Tresor meets Tectonic
Fri 23 December 2016 - 23:59

Rene Pawlowitz aka SHED is from Berlin, a man who melts and merges rough and demanding dance floor skeletons with shockingly detailed melodies, harmonic structures, irresistible hooks and airy arrangements. A formula you also expose yourself to when attending one of his DJ or live gigs. In 2008, Shed released his debut album. “Shedding The Past” is a monolith up to this very day, an unique musical statement. For him, the release of the album also flipped a new switch. Straight after the record hit the shelves, he started two new labels. On “Wax” and “Equalized” he has been releasing critically acclaimed dancefloor anthems ever since. PHON.O is a DJ and musician who released on Cytrax, Shitkatapult, Tigerbeat6 and Boysnoize Rec. PHON.O collaborated with Chris de Luca from Funkstörung under the moniker CLP. His unconventional combination of sexy booty IDM, dirty techno intergalactic hip hop, ghetto beats and future garage goes beyond typical contemporary genre boundaries. Bristol-based Tectonic label owner Pinch discovered Tresor first-hand thanks to a guest slot with collaborator Mumdance within a Dangerous Drums event and thereafter declared our home as one of his favorite Berlin locations. And because the club is perfectly suited for the current affinities of the label, specifically a 128bpm tempo and the resulting grand constants, dark sound design, gritty textures and monstrous bass – we see it as a cosmic dispensation. We also welcome back UK artist Jack Gibbons aka Ipman, whose track “Ghostrunner” found itself on the acclaimed Pinch B2B Mumdance mix CD in 2014, and who rocked the Tresor Floor at Dangerous Drums. In the +4Bar: Katsuya Sano started as a DJ in the late 1980’s when Disco was the main sound. He was heavily into the NY sounds which progressed into his career in parties. He was playing at top famous venues in the Japanese night scene including all the clubs in Tokyo. A vinyl purist, Katsuya has over twenty years of experience playing seriously real deep music. From his native Panama to his roots in Uruguay and Berlin, Omar‘s musical ethos has been shaped through diverse landscapes and human connection. Eschewing categories and the kind of words overabundant in today’s scene, Omar prefers to let his sets vinyl-only journeys that span from techno to electro and the deeper manifestations of house and are aimed at the listener’s pleasure-speak for themselves. We also welcome back frequent guest Alex Barroso aka Alex Cliché, Berlin DJ and producer who time after time delivers a terrific set of electronica styled with precision.
