Efdemin is a mainstay of techno’s days and nights. Berliner by choice he holds a residency at Berghain and operates his label naïf.
Calm, cool and collected, Efdemin’s music is infused by elegant darkness, discreet beauty and the complete lack of jittery. With LPs and 12-inches for Dial or Curle, his remixes (e.g. Depeche Mode), his Pigon project together with RNDM or his drone and ambient pieces under his original name Phillip Sollmann for instance, Efdemin is equally at home in very different circles.
Peter Van Hoesen has never been that typical techno artist. Although considered as one of the genre’s tastemakers he is someone who sculpts sounds for many different environments – the club, the home, the gallery or museum. He does so with a true sense of personality. On his own label Time to Express he releases textural compositions and he also records to great acclaim as Sendai alongside Yves de Mey. In performance terms, Peter lays down dark and arresting techno sets as well as captivating, story-telling live musical journeys. Peter currently resides in Berlin.
