Daniel Breuer & Philipp Otterbach (DE)

Daniel Breuer:
It’s no exaggeration to say that as a DJ, Daniel Breuer draws on an almost encyclopaedic knowledge of rare & undiscovered dance music. From early Italo Disco and Psych-Rock, through to left-field strains of underground House & Techno; experimental Electro-Acoustics and New Wave - Breuer has long since made it his raison d’être to showcase sounds you’re unlikely to find in other record bags.
As a label head, the German selector represents one half of Berlin’s FILM Recordings. Handling A&R alongside Dominic Grötz, the imprint has seen a hugely successful run of releases from a diverse and exciting range of artists. Marvin Horsch’s warm, Jazz-infused Krautrock sits alongside heady, crushed Electro from Denial of Service and Brainwaltzera’s arcane IDM excursions - not to mention the debut LP from rising stars Grandbrothers, and a studio recording of Steve Reich’s Six Pianos, performed by some of contemporary classical music’s brightest & best.
It’s an approach that mirrors his DJ sets. Moving with ease across genre and mood to find new space in familiar sounds - and in turn, open up the dance-floor to decades of recorded music. Less concerned with the limelight, and more with the craft itself - Breuer’s dedication to building a vast and extraordinary record collection has marked him out amongst his peers as a true benchmark for quality control.
