Shrug presents; Sven Weisemann (Ger/Mojuba) // Sat 21st July // One22
Taking Shrug back to its love of all things deep we’re proud to be welcoming one of our favorite artists (and we consider him an artist in the true since of the word) to the DJ booth at One22 this July.
Sven’s beautifully produced music strikes a fine balance between cold atmospheric noise to warm dubby house, and with a taste in music that is as eclectic as his producing style we believe that this may be one of those DJ sets that will leave people talking about for quite some time.
Sven Weisemann is only twenty-seven years old, but already he‘s carved out a niche which is unmistakably his own as a composer / musician / producer / dj.
Despite his young age, Weisemann has been DJing since 1997. His musical influences ranges from Classic, Soundtracks, Soul and Jazz, Deep House and Dub to his beloved Detroit Techno and US House. As a producer, his music draws deeply on the legacy of Chicago and Detroit, yet somehow manages to end up sounding as fresh as a daisy - records such as ‚Vibe‘ and ‚Slices‘ are house music that is half atmosphere and half beats, and not afraid to take its sweet time to lull the floor with their charms.
A self-taught musician who plays piano, acoustic guitar and percussion, Weisemann also composes jazz and soundtracks - traditions which also inform his house records no doubt, many of which you can find on Meanwhile, House Café Music, Apple Pips, Kann, a.r.t.less, Wandering, Liebe*Detail, Real Soon, Styrax Leaves, Essays, Freund der Familie and especially Mojuba, where Weisemann‘s music slots together with friends Nick Solé and Oracy to form a distinct, and highly collectible, label sound.
