Sven Tasnadi/Christopher Rau

Born in 1978, Sven came in contact with music early in his life. He witnessed electronic music coming to Germany with “Who killed JFK” and the like, and soon started to visit locals clubs and finally came to deejaying himself in 1995. Starting with acid and Chicago sounds, Sven eventually came to appreciate contemporary minimal styles. His DJ-career has seen quite some development in the new millennium so far, ranging from gigs at the famous Tresor to his up-to-date residencies in two local techno clubs.

Born in 1978, Sven came in contact with music early in his life. He witnessed electronic music coming to Germany with “Who killed JFK” and the like, and soon started to visit locals clubs and finally came to deejaying himself in 1995. Starting with acid and Chicago sounds, Sven eventually came to appreciate contemporary minimal styles. His DJ-career has seen quite some development in the new millennium so far, ranging from gigs at the famous Tresor to his up-to-date residencies in two local techno clubs.

Sven’s production style got a big influence by very limited resources he had to rely on. Starting with a mostly simple setup of one sampler plus one drum machine, he had to learn it the arduous way. As PCs became a household-standard, Sven finally got to appreciate the comforts of computer based production. Today, he marvels at the abilities Ableton’s Live is offering – discovering new things he never dreamt of being capable of every day. That’s one of the reasons why Sven doesn't like to be limited to just one style – from ambient and trip hop to electro and minimal.



Christopher Rau, the Hamburg-based DJ/producer’s woozy sounds were weaving their melancholy magic for such keenly. followed local publishing houses as Smallville and Laid. Working alone or, as on this year’s 'Cloverleaf Days' with Jacques Bon, Rau’s staked out an affecting sound that marries cotton-packed miniature melodies to gently determined rhythms.

Rau first cut his teeth on production in a hip hop style before he moved to Hamburg in 2009 and changed his focus to more four four beats; subsequently setting up his own label Derive and getting involved with local record shop and label Smallville. To date he’s spread his wings to the prestigious catalogues of Pampa, Laid and Cathedral Sounds and taking flight around the world on the club circuit as the records spread the good word of his smoothly toned analog house sound. His productions embrace multiple layers of slow moving melodies that build and build adding hints of vocals and drums, the acclaimed Asper Clouds LP has been likened to the work of Move-D which isn't suggested lightly.

These days Rau is held in the highest regard amongst his peers and is producing some of the most ground breaking atmospheric deep house around and is slowly becoming one of the most important producers in House music today. « hide
