Welcome, Sven Weisemann!

“Music Is My Life”

Sven Weisemann is only twenty-six years old, but already he has 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 – no doubt – also inform his house records, many of which you can find on labels like 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. Several pseudonyms are in circulation.

+++++

“The first part of his mix is strictly no electronic dance music and consists of Svens’ influences (from Ennio Morricone to Craig Armstrong to Ryuichi Sakamoto). The second part of the mix ventures into some of his favourite cuts of more dubby House.”

Welcome, Mr. Statik !

Stathis Kalatzis is hidden behind the Mr.Statik moniker. Born in 1978, he grew up in Volos (Greece), where his musical influences go back to 1990 and the rising hardcore/breakbeat scene. Several parties, as well as Mr. Statiks’ departure to Athens to study political science at Panteion University, and a firm embrace of Techno music lead to the foundation of Improvize - a mobile party with fellow dj Chevy aiming at bringing a fresh sound of Techno and House in all its forms. More gigs and club nights followed, as well as a wonderful trip to Cape Town with the Red Bull Music Academy in 2003. In the beginning of 2005 Stathis forms the Mud Max project alongside amigo Motek (first releases out on Balkon and Ware).

During 2006, Mr.Statik also starts to work solo, signing his first EPs on labels such as Karloff, Stock5 and Octopus with a variety of tracks which show his moodier and atmospheric side. 2007 finds Mr.Statik djing between his local residency at Fetisch and gigs abroad (with Monegros Festival and Tresor Berlin as highlights) – and in 2008, more releases and international appearances led to a signing to renowed UK label Immigrant and Berlin’s Rotary Cocktail and Perplex. In 2010, Mr. Statik signed to Mo’s Ferry, and in 2011 he released an EP on Bpitch Control.
