Sneaker (DE)

Whether as a producer or DJ – Sneaker is doing it properly
but always after careful consideration. He loves music which imparts
atmosphere and attitude towards life, even in a parodyzing way that doesn’t
take it all or itself too serious. Early on, he fell in love with Detroit and
Chicago but furthermore there are the obscure italo, new wave and
minimal synth gems that make his sets and Dunkeltier edits special and
provide his productions with that certain Sneaker flavour.
If he doesn’t reflect on dance music’s history, the former student of fine arts
shuttles extensively between his part-time-hometowns Dresden and Berlin. He
remixed classic EBM and minimal synth bands such as Twilight Ritual ,
Esplendor Geométrico , Absolute Body Control , S.M. Nurse and Click Click on
his contributions to his harbouring label Frigio based in Madrid, Bahnsteig 23
and the Macadam Mambo Edits label from Lyon.
The pricky bomb that is ‘You Think You Think!’ on Uncanny Valley Rec. has
enriched the sets of Daniel Bell (DBX), Crème head TLR, Cassius, Traxx and
Deetron . It was featured on the FabricLive -CD of Daniel Avery . After the
collaboration Heteronomous on Jacob Korn ’s debut album (featured by
Mano Le Tough in the Boiler Room ) he became specialiced on edits of dance
(un-)classics to be witnessed on his releases on Rat Life and Wiener Brut .
As one third of Serial Error along with Korn and Credit 00 he contributed the
Our Beat Is Still New series on Red D ’s We Play House label from Belgium.
An EP of this studio project is yet to be delivered. In the past whirlwind years
Sneaker has seen an enormous output with EPs on ULM , Lunatic , Bordello A
Parigi plus numerous contributions on vinyl. 2017 we will see a new EP of his
Italo project Bionda e Lupo on Charlois , box tracks on Bio Rhythm and plenty
of edits on wax.
