Bassbottle: Renowned producer, DJ and label owner for hard Techno. Mad musician, freak show monkey and entertainer. His tracks are played by all the big name DJ’s on the best-known events all around the globe.
First Musical Steps:
Bassbottle was born in 1982 in at that time still splitted Berlin. It wasn’t long until he discovered how to make sounds on his chimes and electric piano. He learned to play the guitar and joined a well-known choir for about six years. It was through these musical activities he trained his singing voice and obtained knowledge about harmonics and song structure. He has always been interested in rhythm. As a child people often saw him drumming on several objects.
Youth And Electronic Music:
In his childhood he discovered electronic music. Fascinated by the rave hymns of the time and tape recordings of Hardcore and Gabber parties from club Bunker Berlin, he in 1996 took the chance to make his own debut track on a friend’s Amiga. With that he constructed a song based on a melody he had in mind for years before. From now on he knew his way.
With the years his tracks became better and harder more and more. He also found out what the word „Schranz“ means, on which style he from now on conformed to. But also more tribal Techno stayed the ultimate for him.
In 1999 Bassbottle started deejaying and his record collection grew.
In 2004 Bassbottle uploaded a few of his tracks into internet. Quickly he got a still rising fanbase. The mixsets he released one year later had also access. This lasted until now. His first record on a lable appeared in 2005 and finally got the ball rolling for further releases. He has also been booked as DJ with increasing regularity.
In February 2009 the first release of his own label Sonic Speed Records has been published, followed by other successful ones. In 2010 Bassbottle surprised his fans with finally opening himself for digital releases. A boom of relevant releases was the result.
Meanwhile you’ll find Bassbottle on miscellaneous analogue and digital EP’s from reputable labels like SCHUBfaktor, Digital Mayhem, Highball-Music, G-Not, Audio Code, ZYX and many more. Also his music appeared on several compilations, like for example „Schranzwerk Ost“ or „Syndicate 2014“. Due to the unique style his music is appreciated by DJ’s and by his still growing fanbase – the so-called Sonic Speed Soldiers. The pleasant maniac was one of the inventors of melodic Hardtechno.
He still plays his sound live as DJ (appearing costumed as crazy doctor or else), had many remarkable gigs and appeared on several internet radio shows.
Bassbottle achieves support by other well-known artists like for example Frank Kvitta, Fernanda Martins, DJ Lukas, Alex TB, Greg NoTill, ViperXXL, Mario Ranieri, PETDuo and many more.
In 2017 he was part of PETDuo’s Hard Education party series, released as a remixer, appeared on several compilations and was mentioned in the relevant media.
