Currently residing in his home of choice and calling, Berlin, Nick Höppner skillfully balances, explores and contributes to a dramatically widerange ofmusical professions, proving him to be one of the backbones of today's house and techno underground.

Be it through his monthly residencies at the inimitable Berghain/Panorama bar, his solo releases for Ostgut Ton, his expansive DJ touring, orindeed hiscreative involvement and management of the Ostgut label since its inception, Nick stands out as a unique, long-serving and trulydedicated figure intoday's electronic music world.

As a producer and DJ, Höppner displays all the characteristics of a life-long music lover. Sensitive to the history, emotions, stories andsituations thatderive from this music, for Nick the scope and eclecticism available within the 4/4 rhythm allows him great freedom toexpress his tastes and musicalinstincts. Throughout his five solo 12''s on Ostgut Ton, we find lush, uplifting house, deeply melodic techno dubsessions, spooky percussive workouts,and lashings of richly produced musical statements, always ably avoiding musical pigeonholes. As aremixer too, Nick's passion for storytelling comesthrough with great enthusiasm, as his interpretations of Asusu on Livity Sound, Dauwd onPictures Music or Airhead on Brainmath have all shown.

To immerse one's self within Nick's typically extended DJ sets rewards similar multi-faceted discoveries. Always telling a tale, weaving anexciting pathacross his chosen musical spectrum - whether its a tough, raw and energetic house-party set, a dramatic big-room technoadventure, or anything inbetween - Nick's mature, confident approach and depth of character sets him apart from his contemporaries behindthe decks.

His open minded love and knowledge of music, along with a professional background working as editor for the important Groove magazine,that led tohis position as manager for Berghain/Panoramabar's in-house label, Ostgut Ton. Since the label's birth in 2005 Nick has played adefining role in itsgrowing success (until resigning as the label manager in late 2012), spreading the club's musical message through theproductions of its residents, andselflessly working to push the platform forward, nurturing its growth. « hide
