Momentum Presents: PAN-POT, Matias Jofre, Stephen Eaves + More at SRB Brooklyn! 1/20/13
”A ‘Pan-Pot’ is a simple, functional dial that governs the left and right axis of the stereo field, useful but unremarkable.” [Mobilee Records] Pan-Pot is an entirely different premise. Tassilo Ippenberger and Thomas Benedix, the Berlin based duo known to the electronic dance world as Pan-Pot have wow-ed the many with their mastery of audio function and production, landing them among the most adroit and versatile of deep, uncharted “pitch-black techno”.
On Sunday, January 20, 2013, the duo come head to head with the immense Harman Pro Sound-System at SRB Brooklyn for what is undoubtedly going to be one of the most talked about dance events in New York City this year! Momentum and Dark Matter have created a star-studded lineup of talents to play alongside our favorite Berlin bastions. We will also dance to the sounds of Matias Jofre [(S)inner Scene], Momentum’s Stephen Eaves and The House Cartel, Justin Schumacher (Good For You Records), Ken Masters, and Sam Jaspersohn. Did your mouth just water too?
Pan-Pot have made a dominant presence in electronic dance music since 2005 with their signing the ever-so-talented Anja Schneider to Mobilee Records and soon after releasing their original production “Copy & Paste”, which was second for the label. In a few short years Mobilee Records, tagged as “The Dark Side of the Force”, has rose to the top of the dance-food-pyramid housing top-tier talent such as Ajna Schneider, Maya Jane Coles, Dan Curtin, Exercise One, Ray Okpara, Marcin Czubala, Sean Miller, as well several others and of course, Pan-Pot! The duo have enlightened dance music with their unorthodox sound which presents a deranged array of multifarious tempos, throbbing bass-lines, subtle pitch manipulations, epic builds, quintessential melodies and the most strategically crafted wall-to-wall sound distortion that listeners have been lucky enough to indulge in. Pan-Pot weaves together the best tone-depths of deep-house, tech-house, and the dark diverges of techno to hand deliver a sound that has been impossible to turn away from. They have gained praise from the dance industries elite including Dubfire, Paul Kalkbrenner, Radio Slave, Richie Hawtin, Tassilo, and Stacey Pullen, whom never hesitate to include Pan-Pot music in their live dj sets because their productions “always set fire to the dancefloor”.
2007 was the year Pan-Pot really became a staple in dance music with the release of their debut artist album, Pan-O-Rama which delivered a “360-degree view of techno at its most twisted” highlighting the prodigious productions “Charly” and “Crank”. Shortly after their big debut, the boys swept our ears away with tracks like “Confronted”, “Captain My Captain” and “Muffin Mafia” which define them as two of the strongest, most consistent purveyors of techno to date. We got to understand the fast rise of Pan-Pot’s success with the March 2012 release of the Pan-Pot documentary in which director Sebastian Radlmeier took us on a year’s journey with the German techno stars. It truly is a once in an EDM lifetime opportunity to catch this monumental duo live, so do not miss Pan-Pot‘s EXTENDED SET amid a long list of musical talent at SRB Brooklyn on Sunday, January 20, 2013!
Adding to the already overwhelming Sunday techno Funday will be Argentina’s Matias Jofre, who is a sound essential when it comes to quality minimal techno. Jofre is an innovative artist, producer and entrepreneur who draws inspiration from global club culture. He invariably experiments with sound design and production techniques for his own music and (S)innerScene dance events. Founded and owned by Jofre, (S)innerScene events host weekly parties in New York City and the tristate area; events which elude musical boundaries bringing to party-people high quality dance music in artistically cultural atmospheres. Matias Jofre is certainly a name to know when it comes to New York club culture and driving techno music and we are pleased to catch him hit the decks at SRB Brooklyn playing alongside a long list of major talents in techno, tech house, and minimal!
Since most of us don’t have (or will be skipping) work the next day thanks to Martin Luther King Jr., we plan to dance the night and morning away with some of our favorite names in underground dance music; several of which have graced our ears in New York before. Set to play alongside Pan-Pot and Matias Jofre will be Momentum‘s Stephen Eaves and The House Cartel, Justin Schumacher (Good For You Records), Ken Masters and Sam Jaspersohn for what is sure to be an unforgettable night (and morning) of high quality dance music! This event will go from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.
