[NovaFuture Blog Exclusive Mix]: Manuel Münster plays René Pawlowitz

 

DJ:
Manuel Münster

 

About the concept:
Here is the ninety-sixth 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 Manuel Münster’s mix of tracks/remixes produced by René Pawlowitz.

 

About Manuel Münster:
Sometimes, one experience is all it takes to give someone’s life a new direction. This certainly proved true for Manuel Münster. Manuel, attracted to Berlin’s allure of countless possibilities and open-minded attitude towards alternative lifestyles, made his move to the German capital in 2008.

Manuel’s musical socialization was rooted in hardcore punk and metal, but shortly after arriving in Berlin and visiting his first techno party, he quickly immersed himself in a world that was beyond his initial musical tastes. Taking advantage of Berlin’s countless record stores dedicated to electronic music, he assembled a respectable collection of 12″s and decided to give DJing a try himself. Progressing from playing small bars and parties, he became a regular DJ at Tresor from 2011 onwards.

In 2013 Manuel further shaped Berlin’s techno footprint by hosting his own club nights called “Escapism” throughout the city. The record label of the same name emerged in 2016 with the help of a friend, providing a platform for his peers and fellow artists to release music that shared the same philosophy of Münster’s. Staying true to techno’s political element, Manuel’s DJ-sets are reflective of his perception of the world surrounding him. While mostly bleak and repetitive, groove is always the essential driving force of his sets. It is this focus that allows him to connect to, challenge and inspire his audience.

 

About René Pawlowitz:
René Pawlowitz – better known under his moniker Shed, Is one of the most respected techno artists in the industry today. Born in Frankfurt, René first got interested in electronic music in the early 1990s, by 2002 he had moved to Berlin and founded his own label Soloaction Records with the support of the iconic Berlin record store Hard Wax.

On his own label he released his fist EP as Shed ‘Red Planet Express’ in 2004. 2008 saw the release of the first album ‘Shedding The Past’ which went on to be named album of the year by Resident Advisor. Since then René has cemented himself as an evergreen producer with releases on a number of household labels including Ostgut Ton and Modeselektor’s 50 Weapons imprint to name a few, adding to his impressive work under alias including Head High and The Higher.

whether it be through track selection in his DJs sets or the raw power of his live show, Shed manages to merge rough dance floor skeletons with detailed melodies, harmonic structures and airy arrangements for an evocative performance that isn’t easily forgotten.

Manuel Münster About His Choice:
Shed’s productions have been a constant companion ever since I dove into the Techno scene in 2008. Though it is a tired cliché, Berghain and Panorama Bar were influential during those early days of going down the rabbit hole. Naturally, I spent a lot of time listening to Marcel Dettmann’s „Berghain 02“ and Cassy’s „Panorama Bar 01“ mixes back then. Both mix-CDs feature Shed-tracks that are still among my favourites, two of these also made it onto this mix (the Luke Hess-remix and „Well Done“). They proved to be an influential cornerstone of what was to come after and sparked my interest in Shed’s productions.

During this mix’s preparation, I was pleasantly surprised by how many Shed-records I own. Even after settling on the final running order, I came across more Shed-records in my collection, some of which I had forgotten for a long time. Compiling this mix was a trip down memory lane, reminiscent of my first years in Berlin, that I thoroughly enjoyed. I hope you enjoy listening to it just as much!

About Bollmann:
Some DJs like to write a lot of text about themselves. I let music speak for itself, but to wrap it up: bang bang bang. and even more bang. Hard-knocking kicks, overdriven acid lines, funky oldschool hardcore rave charme and even more bang.

Do you really need to know more?

 

About Demain Kollectiv:
Organizing urban underground rave parties since 2015, and having invited a sh*t ton of beautiful artists from accross Europe, we are now crafting our own techno/rave record label in order to promote such a yong and prolific new scene.

Bollmann About His Choice:
The young underground collective delivers another dimension of hardcore charme

Taking the hype of oldschool 90s rave music, delivering it to dark techno and mashing it with industrial vibes the Demain Kollectiv provides the symbiosis of sound that i love.

But Demain puts it in his very own interpretation of all these things which is a significant characteristic of good art in my opinion. So I decided to showcase them to you.
