[Keinemusik :: Berlin]

Keinemusik is not the type of record label as you know it. When putting out a record, the guys will wrap it up personally, refine it with artistic splendour, stamp it and seal it with a kiss, before it ends up in the stores or on your turntable. Question is: Why let someone else do the filthy job, when you can get it done as lousy by yourself. Or maybe even a bit better. Keinemusik is a DIY-operation. Not, because it makes that imposing impression or because they like to wallow in nostalgia, just because it feels right. Keinemusik is a label-, booking- and partynetwork. Everything happening there gets onto Keinemusik.com on time and bilingual. But above all, Keinemusik is the spirit that moves the collective behind the imprint. The Keinemusik-Clique would rather throw a BBQ than meditate over some businessplan and whatnot. Some of the guys are putting out records, bringing the elegance and the sexappeal back into the Deep- and Techhouse-game. Others are more into the mixing of records for entertainment purposes, some are multimedia-knowitalls, some spread the word on blogs or in magazines, some are into producing art with insane appreciation value. If there’s a credo, it would be: you don’t necessarily need to be overly serious to be taken seriously.

Welcome to the party, brothers and sisters!

Welcome, Adam Port !

Techno’s biggest flaw is its self-referencial tendency. You know the deal, the common contemporary DJ/Producer steals an Underground Resistance-Record from his older brother at the age of 16 (biographical details may vary, not to impair the facts, though), thus presuming to have found the holy grail (what, of course, nobody is claiming to deny). His world is shrinking down to Detroit, Chicago, New York and Berlin within the following years, he’ll equip himself with records and turntables and not look over the rim of his MKII ever again. Adam Ports biography is different. Adam was Hardcore, when he was 16. No, not Rotterdam-Hardcore. We’re talking New York-, Boston- and Washington D.C.-Hardcore here. It’s a past that he still lives up to, cultivating it in his vegetarian-straight-edge-lifestyle. After that there was HipHop. He got in touch with turntablism, discovered his love for vinyl and evolved to be a skilled DJ for the first time. Then, finally came Techno. This way of tracing down spaces, giving one the best possible chance of self-development, is the essential reason for Ports presence being so unique. There’s no scene-dictated tunnel view in his activities, there is only a pointed emphasis on style, on groove and sophistication. An emphasis, that, because it’s informed by Dub, Danchall, Rap, Soul or even Psychedelic Rock, is advanced enough to always shine through the inflationary characteristic of the genre as notably original. That applies to both, his productions and his DJ-sets. What Adam Port is laying his hands on might have its place within the parameters of House and Techno, but it’s always more than that. It’s his style.

Welcome, &Me !

You may not have heard so much from André (aka &ME) so far. Instead of the flash and glitter associated with most of his producer colleagues, he’s preferred to stay in the shadows, co-producing and ghost writing for artists like DJ Hell and Terranova. Now after putting out his first solo single on Keinemusik, which was supported by all the key players (Front Room label boss Jesse Rose, Luke Solomon, Gabriel Ananda, Danny Tenaglia and Dubfire plus many more) &ME is finally ready to ‘go public’ as they say. He may have taken some time to figure out his own style of blending Techno and House music but now he’s out there’s really no escape. With a name like an attention deficit child’s mantra it’s a wonder he stayed ‘in’ so long.

Welcome, Rampa !

Chances are, you’ve heard of Rampa before. Sure, he’s known for coming up with the most elaborate staches in the game, he’s got imposing skills when it comes to throw BBQs and riding scooters and whatnot, but we’re talking something different here. Rampa has a history of producing acts that found their way directly into the charts. Some of his collaborations include Lottergirls, Terranova and Princess Superstar. But since he put out his first EP entitled “Grill Royal” and the single “Tanz auf mir” on TNT/Terranova Recordings in 2008, he made a name of himself quite instantly. Recommended by his fellow colleagues A-Trak and LCD Soundsystem, Nike Shoes approached him and requested a track for their campaign. The result was “AM 1990”.One of his more recent projects would be an albumproduction together with Nomi of Hercules & Love Affair fame. The first single out of this cycle is soon to be released on Rebirth. Plus there are a lot more things to come on Keinemusik, his own little D.I.Y.-cosmos, being not only label, but also crew of likeminded Djs, producers and friends. Just recently he released his Keinemusik-debut with “Wife & Man” and is working on remixes soon to be released on Get Physical and Front Room Recordings. If he’s not spitting out new material, Rampa is likely to be found behind some turntables between Berlin and New York, representing his own definition of Techno and House, bridging the gap between deepness and elation. Never taking things too seriously, apart from those serious grooves he’s got in his pockets.

Welcome, David Mayer !

Crossing borders is a familiar experience to David Mayer. Though being born in south Germany, he spent most of his youth living in Norway and (for a change) in Lanzarote, before Berlin happened to become his home in 2004. As he prefers thinking outside the box, Mayer has always been equally interested in experimenting with diverse forms of music, no matter what musical genre they derive from, although his passion for funked up and heavily pounding 4/4 beats clearly dominates his creative output. Both when spinning records and producing tracks, he is presenting his own interpretation of catchyness, mixing up Techno and House, adding a little deepness, but always keeping an eye on making his audience shake it like a polaroid picture. His dedication finds its way in several musical excursions as a ghost-/coproducer or audio engineer. Only leaving his desk in order to indulge some serious clubbing, you can be sure this guy knows about priorities. Supervising the successful releases of his fellow combatant Rampa on Terranova Recordings is just one example. As a founding member of the artists collective and label Keinemusik, David Mayer accounts for pieces like the newsworthy “Fun Girl” remix for Jessica6 and is currently involved in the album producion with Jessica6-singer Nomi of Hercules & Love Affair. But of course, he is also working on the next thing to tie in with his “Nacktenordner EP”, which was released on Keinemusik just recently. Be sure that there are some serious undertakings in the process, that we all should have an ear open for.
