Barnt: Born in the '70s, kid of the '90s. When his classmates were into grunge, he was exploring techno, when the same classmates discovered techno, he was already taking a closer look into hip-hop (battling in the nationwide DMC and ITF championships), when everyone went to Berlin to celebrate minimal, he was on a trip back in time to inhale early German electronic and rock music -- attracted by the main oppositional poles of this era: accuracy and free rein. Mainly these biographical key points and his (now over two decades spanning) DJ experience are the base for his formula of pathos, calculated dilettantism, and dancefloor functionality that characterize all his productions. Take the infamous "Geffen," or his earlier work with Cologne Tape on the EP Render, the first release on his own conceptual imprint Magazine, which he co-runs with Crato and Jens-Uwe Beyer. Render and his debut solo EP What Is a Number, That a Man May Know It? became instant underground hits in 2010 and the records have been precious collector's items ever since. At that time he was already an established part of the music scene in Cologne, the city where he finished first his Biology and subsequently his Art studies (carving out the two poles "accuracy" and "free rein" in his development again). He still lives in the fruitful atmosphere of Cologne and from here he further evolves his idiosyncratic style, which has already brought him from Robert Johnson to Trouw, from Montreux Jazz Festival to MUTEK Mexico, from Berghain to Burning Man. packaged in gatefold sleeve. 180 gram vinyl. Includes CD.
