OLIVER HUNTEMANN (H-MAN)- GERMANY 3hrs
Confused / Herzblut / Great Stuff / Cocoon
Myths abound in the north when it comes to techno ground zero, and they refuse to go away. Oliver Huntemann is one of a handful of children of the north who, for what seems like an eternity, add an element of credence to the mythology. He does not, of course, live in a snowy forest or at the edge of the polar oceans. The sun does, on occasion, shine down on Hamburg. Nevertheless, there is a tendency towards hypothermic reduction in the rigourous efficiency of the Huntemann oeuvre.
Huntemann’s tracks may well have dragged themselves out of the same primeval soup, but it was the far north which fired them with the necessary steel for clubland. The resulting creations are linear, free of fancy, charmingly direct.
Oliver Huntemann’s concrete roots can be traced back to early techno. Had he been any younger, he would undoubtedly have sucked electronica like mother’s milk from a C64 chip. Like so many of his colleagues, his route to techno took a tour through electro and rave. As well as numerous 12 inches and almost as many remixes (for Underworld, Chemical Brothers and Depeche Mode, to name just a few), he released his second album, “Fieber“ in 2006. Last but not least the successful collaboration with Dubfire (Deep Dish) in 2008, creating with Diablo and Dios the biggest dance tracks of the year.
With so much fame on his plate, he done remarkably well to stay out of the spotlight. That’s how it is in the north, actions count, not appearances.
OLIVER KOLETZKI - GERMANY
Stil Vor Talent / Cocoon / Great Stuff / Kling Klong
It sounds like a fairy tale. In 2005 29-year old OLIVER KOLETZKI presses 500 copies of his underground hit "Der Muckenschwarm".One of those white labels lands in Sven Väth's record bag and whenever he plays the track, the people go wild. Shortly after techno king Väth signs the track on his techno empire Cocoon. "Der Muckenschwarm", already considered as a techno classic - becomes the best sold techno record of 2005, and OLIVER KOLETZKI gets voted best newcomer of the year in prestigious Groove magazine.
In October 2005, while still riding on the success of his debut single, Oliver directly realises one of his dreams: to have his own label. He founds Stil vor Talent, a label dedicated to pushing new artists and creating a platform for a huge variation of quality electronic dance music – from minimal techno to squeaky house to pop music.
Label manager, producer, DJ, bandleader: above all this, Oliver still manages to fill the clubs around the world and make people smile to his energetic DJ sets. Be in the best clubs of Europe such as London's Fabric, Berlin's Berghain or around the rest of the world: Oliver
knows how to perform and connect with his audience. OLIVER KOLETZKI is already working on his next album. There is really no stopping him in 2010!
