Bigfoot's presents Daniel Steinberg - World Album Tour photo gallery
Bigfoot's are positively bouncing to welcome Daniel Steinberg to Glasgow on his "Shut Up" album tour. The "German dance floor darling" famous for his infectious, punchy and humorous club music arrives on Friday 4th Feb - upstairs at Art School, primed with the critically acclaimed new release on Jesse Roses' FrontRoom Recordings. Building on our last outing with Ambivalent at the same venue, we are combining an even bigger production with a live performer who blows the roof off while putting a smile on everyone's faces, - read on to find out more...
// DANIEL STEINBERG
While his productions are being played by the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano, Claude Vonstroke and Richie Hawtin to name but a few, Daniel Steinberg has always shied away from press attention, instead preferring to craft his music shrouded from ego and hype.
A veritable chameleon of Berlin’s musical landscape since he first started producing his colourful vision of house and techno back in 1994, a time when Berlin’s sound was stripped back and very distinctive, Steinberg was already thriving outside this box, experimenting with exotic world samples and having fun fusing elements together to make a cohesive whole that was always greater than the sum of its parts.
Before long his productions were brought permanently to the attention of Front Room label boss Jesse Rose, a guy with a very similar ethos on the flexibility of house music and a kindred penchant for delving into samples of the past to transmogrify their best elements. Daniel’s talent of drawing on vintage and tropical elements to bring soul, warmth and, sometimes the completely unexpected, to modern house was enough to persuade Jesse this guy needed to be signed…for the long term.
As Berlin’s underground throbbed with minimal beats and stripped down house, Steinberg seemed to reach into the concreted shadows and caverns and emerge with something shimmering with real heart and feeling. Dicing Brazilian samples with killer beats and laying on the glitch to heavy effect, this type of behaviour is definitely exercised to stunning effect across the LP.
Bigfoot is delighted to welcome Daniel to Scotland on his World Album Tour.

DJ Mag - "one of the scene’s most unique talents", "If the hypothetical prospect of Luciano putting an LP together for Dirty Bird appeals, then ‘Shut Up’ is well worth tracking down. "
