About the concept:
Here is the twenty-fourth instalment of our series “abc plays xyz”.
The idea behind it is to ask some DJs/mixing artists if they have an artist or label in mind that they love and would like to use for a mix.
So the approach of each mix is clear: the choosen DJ/mixing artist makes a selection of tracks produced by one artist (and her/his monikers) or released on a label (and its sublabels) and creates a nice mix from it.
Find links to all instalments at our overview. Today we present you Patrick Brosin’s mix of tracks on Tresor Records.
About Patrick Brosin:
Patrick Brosin is the head of .defaultbox which is based in Berlin. He came very early in contact with the Berlin club music like Tresor and E-Werk which has him influenced by. His way started very early in the age with 14. Nowadays he can say that he played in many several clubs and festivals and can look back to some releases. But anyway. See for yourself.
About Tresor Records:
It was the time when the Wall came down. It seemed like the whole world wandered into East Berlin: the new frontier. In the heart of a pre-war metropolis and previously prohibited area surrounding Potsdamer Platz, electronic music lovers found a new location which was made to measure for the underground scene: Tresor, a new home that once housed the bank vaults of Europe’s largest department store in the 1920’s.Since 1991 it has been here that Berlin’s DJ’s and musicians have continued to meet techno and house artists from all over the world: Jeff Mills and Underground Resistance, Daniel Bell, Blake Baxter, Cristian Vogel, Juan Atkins, Neil Landstrumm, Joey Beltram, Surgeon, The Advent and many more.
Starting a „club label“ was the next logical step, helped by the growing contacts with the artists. In the late summer of 1991 Tresor Records began as a subsidiary label of Interfisch Records (Clock DVA, Final Cut feat. Jeff Mills, Cosmic Baby, TV Victor) with the release of „Sonic Destroyer“ by the Detroit trio Undergound Resistance. The Berlin-Detroit connection has proven beneficial and vital for the artists and the Berlin team ever since the Interfisch days. The label has proven itself a formidable platform for diverse projects including the Tresor Club Headquarters releases, the housefloor series of Globus Mixes, the legendary Tresor Compilations and productions by some of Berlin’s and the world’s most respected electronic music composers, DJs and producers.
Tresor Records is characterized by the principle not to release material fast and indiscriminately but rather to put emphasis on long term collaborations with its artists. In more than 260 releases involving the participation of hundreds of artists – whether one-off or regular Tresor names – the motto „quality instead of quantity“ remains engraved on the underground stones of the Tresor legend. From the underground to you. Strictly Tresor.
