On Friday Feb 5, INCOGNITO proudly presents the Exclusive West Coast Appearance of a real Techno Royalty, OLIVER HUNTEMANN aka H-Man & Rekorder (Ideal Audio, Confused Recordings, Dance Electric, Germany).
Myths abound on techno ground zero in Berlin. But years of throwing techno events in the 80's in Berlin, OLIVER HUNTEMANN started producing care of the Humane Project in 1992, on the Berlin cult label, MFS. After more than 15 years of successfully producing techno under such labels like Spezial Music, Toscana, Alphabet City, Gigolo and Giant Wheel, he is now acknowledged to be one of Germany's hottest electronic acts, a DJ's 'Techno DJ', so to speak. His most recent releases are on his own 1995-founded Confused and Dance Electric labels, Anthony Rother's Datapunk and the extremely profilic Berlin-based Gigolo Records. His "perfectly balanced tracks sitting somewhere between Chicago, electro and minimal disco" (Groove Magazine) lead him - alongside his studio partner Stephan Bodzin who were both under the anonymous name of Rekorder - to the noble honour of doing countless remixes for Depeche Mode, Underworld and Chemical Brothers to name a few, and all have been massive.
But he has always been a leader, never a follower. So while others flocked to Berlin for techno inspiration, OLIVER HUNTEMANN instead went North, to Hamburg specifically. He then started his own new label, Ideal Audio, as well as doing collaborations with Dubfire (Deep Dish), creating Diablo and Dios, that eventually became two of the biggest dance tracks of the year 2008.
So from his perch in Hamburg, OLIVER has been producing track after epic track, while traveling the world and spreading his music, both as a producer, and as a DJ (see his mix CD's PLAY! 01 and PLAY! 02), proving time and again how he has been one of the leaders of the techno world since inception.
On Friday Jan 15, come and give respect to a real Techno Royalty as OLIVER HUNTMANN turns INCOGNITO and see why one particular London arbiter of taste sought to label the nature of his skeletal sound as “bare and striped back to the metallic core“ – where in fact, Huntemann’s reduction does not end in thin minimalism, it instead draws attention to the core itself. Less is more to the max. The only luxury is a little dirt.
Support that night will come from FRANCO BENITO (INCOGNITO), and Official Bday Sets from DARIUS ALEKSANDAR (Deeper Moods) and MUSASHI SAN (Rotunda). Visuals will be provided by VK KRIS BERTRAND (Colombia Sound Militia)
