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.
In 2012 a remix of the 80s Belgian minimal synth band Twilight Ritual saw the light of the day on Madrid based Frigio Records, followed by another remix of industrial pioneers Esplendor Geométrico in 2013. 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) it was time for the single EP Java/Sumatra in summer 2013 on Uncanny Valley. Specialized on edits of dance (un-)classics he’s one of the heads behind the new label Rat Life. 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.
His new edits of wave classics of bands like Absolute Body Control on Macadam Mambo & Bahnsteig 23, his EPs on Lunatic, ULM & Rat Life plus features on Lux, Bordello A Parigi, Mond Musik and Uncanny Valley are even increasing the output. 2 new collaborations as Dérive and Bionda E Lupo will explore new horizons.
