High & Tight and Q proudly present Prosumer (Berlin) for a 4+ hour set
Local support from DJ Nark
The man called Prosumer is taken over by it. Since Achim Brandenburg heartily
grabbed the microphone under this moniker in 2005 for Frankfurt’s then
undisputed Label Playhouse, he showed that lasciviousness, a fever for Chicago’s
Jack flavor and consciousness of tradition aren’t necessarily bound to a time
and a place. It’s rather vision, passion and knowledge that make Prosumer a
guardian of house music history and one of the formative artists, DJ's and
producers of our days.
With more than a decade of Hard-Wax-Record-Store-enculturation on the clock
(first in Saarbrucken, then Berlin), and while deriving his name from Alvin
Toffler’s techno sci-fi-bible The Third Wave (producing and consuming at the
same time), Prosumer is in line with the “big three”. This is not a reference to
Detroit’s car companies, but the city’s musical heritage that in conjunction with
the Big Apple and the Windy City builds the groundwork for techno and house.
Prosumer oscillates between these poles. This holds true for his own productions
that are affected by references and historical vertexes, but never out of time. An
album with Murat Tepeli and collaborations with Tama Sumo expand his
discography for labels like the aforementioned Playhouse, Running Back or
Swayzak’s 240 Volts. On the other hand – and that might be far more important
– this is exemplary for his DJ work since the mid-nineties. Prosumer connects the
tracks and songs of this music’s golden age with the worthwhile pieces and
developments of today. Accordingly to that special feeling which is so hard to
couch, he becomes enganged in it from tip to toe – and so does his audience.
Proved by his mission as one of the residents in Berlin’s influential club
institution, on his official mix CD for that place that describes his spectrum of
sound perfectly and by this certain magic that travels with and in him
