Following Derrick May's set earlier in the year Weekend Circuit return to the capital with two Harry Klein favorites. One half of the Zenker Brothers, Dario will be joined by Avatism. With Dario riding the wave of success with his Ilian Tape imprint and releases on Vakant and ReSolute while Avatism has been currying favour with the likes of Tiefschwarz and Audiofly this looks set to be a night of the highest musical quality.
The following does not seek to lionise, rather it wishes to tell the amusing tale of a carnivorous, Kung Fu-loving Munich man who just happens to have that certain uuuhhhâ€¦factor. Dario Zenker, natural-born dancer and Mowgli-like wild boy was raised in Germanyâ€™s Deep South on a diet of Wu Tang, Gangstarr, Michael Jackson and sweet mustard.
2006 saw his first vinyl debut and since then he has produced releases, remixes and his own unique brand of house and techno on labels such as Vakant, Frozen Border and Time to Express, to name but a few. Founded by him, his brother and partner in crime Marco and longtime sidekick Mueller, Ilian Tape is their homegrown label, nurtured with much tender love since 2007. In 2009, the residents of Harry Klein joined forces to bring Harry Klein Records to life, captained by Julietta, Marco and himself. When he isnâ€™t working his voodoo at dance rituals all over the world, both labels offer the perfect platform for him to translate and transmit his own distinguished sound from his enclave in Munichâ€™s Turkish quarter. His inspiration? Life, love and dancing.
Thomas did not buy his first vinyl record when he was 10 years old, nor was he born out of the love of two underground jazz musicians. He had an extremely dull and standard childhood and can barely play the drums. He has, however, released his moody, small room music on labels such as Dumb Unit, Vakant and Haunt. With his productions already supported by artists of the caliber of Ellen Allien, Richie Hawtin, Magda and Seth Troxler, Avatism is now touring his new live set, bringing his intricate doom-laced grooves to the clubs.
