Line-up /Prosumer (Ostgut Ton)
Warm continue their exclusive monthly Plastic People residency on Friday July 23rd with a special four hour set from Prosumer.
Achim Brandenburg AKA Prosumer is one of the foremost advocates of House and Techno working in music today. As labels like Prescription and Relief began to showcase the soulful, deep sound that would come to establish them as among the all-time great imprints, Achim’s interest in the musical heritage of Chicago and Detroit began to grow, and he soon became an regular customer at the Hard Wax store in his home town of Saarbrücken, followed by a stint there as an employee. This laid the groundwork for the classic strain of House and Techno that still permeates his sets today. In his own words, “my heart still beats for the early Chicago-Detroit-Techno sound.”
Taking the Prosumer name from Alvin Toffler’s novel ‘The Third Wave’, a book that informed much of the imagery and ideology that surrounded the emergence of Detroit Techno, Achim has forged himself a reputation for being one of the most knowledgeable DJs on the scene, earning himself a regular spot at Berlin’s zeitgeist-defining Panorama Bar. He is also an incredibly distinctive producer who has released tracks - often featuring his own mesmerizing vocals - on labels such as Running Back, Playhouse, and, of course Ostgut Ton.
Joining Prosumer will be the Warm Residents Ali Tillett and Rob Summerhayes.
