Dixon might have been a footballer, long distance runner or a high jumper, but luckily for house heads worldwide, dodgy knees and disillusionment towards solitary training methods meant he ended becoming one of the leading lights in Berlin clubland just as it grew beyond its techno heritage. One of the few Berliners to actually be from the city, he made his name on DJing alone: no gimmicks, no sponsored tours or two-hour guest spots. Coming through at a time when a residency was just that, he played records often on the soulful and deeper side of house, with a pinch of techno, every weekend, at the same clubs, all night. He also part owns Innervisions, a label known for the quality of its releases as well as the inventiveness of the music it puts it’s name too. Releases are sparse because each one has to be truly memorable, eschewing the hit and miss scattergun approach adopted by some labels. Dixon, a man who was once described as dressing like a crazy Bavarian goat herder (by a friend) has been in this game for 18 years and made house his home.
Âme have been in our lives since 2003, and have proven to be among the most quietly influential dance music producers of their generation, their early work heralding, and even inspiring, a whole new wave of artists refashioning and recombining Detroit techno and deep house tropes according to cutting edge production techniques.
They first made their name with dazzling singles like ‘Mifune’/'Shiro’ and a self-titled album for Sonar Kollektiv in 2004, but it was with a succession of superb remixes for the likes of Roy Ayers, Akabu, Truby Trio and Ferrer & Sydenham (their version outshining the source material in virtually ever case) and with the establishment of their own imprint, Innervisions, co-piloted by Dixon and Schwarz, that they really developed their own voice – leading to 2005′s Rej EP, a bona fide classic. Since then, every Ame 12″ has been an event – last year’s ‘Rose Sselavy’ and its terrific B-side ‘Junggesellenmaschine’ exemplify Beyer and Wiedemann’s mature, elegantly engineered but always impassioned and energetic approach to house music.
Born 1981, lives and produced in Augsburg.
His musical influences are characterized by the complete lack of fear of contact, ranging from punk and new wave (Stranglers / Joy Division) to pop (Prince / Peter Gabriel) and classic techno (Dave Angel / Daniel Bell), to local folk music (Biermösl Blosn ). His DJ sets regularly leave enthusiastic audience that especially appreciates his playful versatility and his keen sense of the mood among his very specific gig.
As a DJ, Daniel was the first time in 1995 on local events in Freising. In the following years, he recorded, among other things The Analog Digital Festival / Munich (live), Club Achter Mai / Berlin, the City Jazz Festival / Brunswick, U60311/Frankfurt, kerosene / Augsburg and regularly several clubs in and outside Germany. Since 2007 he has been resident DJ at the Rote Sonne in Munich. Moreover, he invites a monthly national and international DJ guests on his own highly successful series of events at the Black Sheep (Forza Electronica) in Augsburg.
1995 was also the starting year for Daniel as a producer. After a first remix for Media Records in 2005, he published regularly since 2007, including Pastamusik, with its consistently positive feedback roofed own productions.
