That’s what Console mastermind Martin Gretschmann thought when he asked some artists – for whom he had done some remixes before (under his alter ego Acid Pauli) – to do some rework on the last Console opus “Herself” (DB156). So these remixes aren’t anaemic contract works, but new interpretations solely created by friends and buddies highly appreciated – personally and artisticly! The results speak for themselves!

Marek Hemmann is a gatherer of sounds and noises. Socialised by techno parties in his home town Gera, he refined and improved his sets from which grew the distinctive Marek Hemmann sound; a sound with a minimum on technique but rather a very wide diversity of noise and tonal sensibility. A funky minimal techno with plenty of space for other musical elements. Always on the search for the perfect groove and catchy melodies which fit snug and comfy in the ear. Since 2005 Marek Hemmann lives in Jena where his home, studio and label are in the immediate vicinity. After innumerable remixes and a handful of singles, in fall 2009 his debut album “In Between” has been published on the label Freude am Tanzen.

Douglas Greed lives in Jena and is Hemmann’s label mate on the famous Freude am Tanzen label. The Bauhaus alumnus and enthusiastic music lover has released a considerable number of releases on straightforward labels like Combination, Lebensfreude, Kindisch, Infiné, Dekadent, Ostwind, Acker and of course Freude am Tanzen, as well as several remixes. In 2011 he presented his debut album „KRL” on Freude Am Tanzen. His principal: Be curious and surprise your audience as well as yourself.

The more than likeable Hamburg based triumvirat Wareika names artists like Sun Ra, Scientist and Fela Kuta being a big influence. Smells like perfectly matching Console’s taste of music, too! Martin Gretschmann is very sure that Wareika – if not splitting up before – will soon become big techno stars. Wareika travel a lot from America to Japan. Well, no big surprise: Henrik Raabe, Jakob Seidensticker und Florian Schirmacher belong to the rather rare species of electronic live acts generating their sound in both – an organic and an electronic way.

Dirty Doering is probably best known for his hit release “I Would” on the bar25 label. Born in Leipzig in 1978, but grew up in the Black Forest in southern Germany. He started DJing professionally at the age of 19, and soon followed his career to Berlin. He rose quickly as a part of the club and underground scene in Berlin, and soon the most influential locations such as “BAR25” (resident), “Watergate”, “Tresor”, “Club 103”, “Arena”, “HomeSweetHome”, “Bachstelzen”, “Rote Sonne”, “Maria” and “Weekend” became the places to frequently see Dirty Doering playing his sexy electronic dance sound. Performances of his interpretation of the Berlin sound followed at the “Fusion” and “Melt!” festivals (Germany), Studio88 (France), Nadsat (Kopenhagen), “Fabric” (London), “Sonar” Festival (Spain),”Klubbers Day” (Madrid) and many more international locations and events. He has created remixes for artists such as Housemeister, Oliver Koletzki, Chilly Gonzales, Nicone, Console, Bonaparte, and more.
