Penner + Muder
About Penner + Muder
Nils Penner and John Muder produced their first 4-Track Demo CD in August 2007.
Produced in the Suol Studios in East-Berlin for fun rather than with a full-blown business plan, Sasse signed
2 tracks of this demo for his Moodmusic imprint.
„Are You Lost“ became Penner+Muders first vinyl 12“ release. It got great reactions from the dj community
and the B-side „Millenium Falcon“ was picked by electro-maestro Oliver Huntemann himself for his Mix
Compilation „Play 02! Live at Rex / Paris“. That was in May 2008.
At this time John and Nils made the decision to only play Live sets so the duo could concentrate fully on
their own sound, rather than taking a line at the end of the ever-growing dj list.
The first gig became quite a kick-off. It happened at a Moodmusic showcase at the well-known Panorama
Bar in Berlin late summer 2008 and the feedback was none less than stellar. One good thing lead to another
and gigs happened at Watergate, Berlin and Baalsaal, Hamburg with more planned for the spring/summer
Release-wise the guys kept it slow and focussed on quality than quantity. Working from two cities (Hamburg
and Berlin) with rather short studio-time it almost took one year before the second EP „No Nose Knows“
hit the stores. Meanwhile the duo has also remixed for Moodmusic, Oliver Koletzki´s Stil Vor Talent label
Their current single, entitled „Another EP“, is in the pipe on the new imprint Wazi Wazi, which is already
gaining support and respect from the critics like De-Bug Magazine.
Wazi Wazi is Nils personal label side-project (with Sasse) besides workin with John and handling a graphic
design business he is living on. Johns passion is music based and he is working nonstop with his partner in
crime Chi-Thien Nguyen aka Chopstick and their successfull new homebase „Suol“.
Pretty much right after the release of „Are You Lost“ Sasse asked the guys if they were up for a full-length
album on Moodmusic and guess what: they were. Working on the album happened over the last two years,
pending between Hamburg and Berlin, and came to an end by the end of 2009. „Same Monkeys Different
Zoo“ is scheduled for June 2010.
At this point Nils and John are really looking forward to the Album release and to play some hot and dirty
Album-Tour Live gigs.
