Raw Berlin Techno is more than a category of music, it is an attitude towards life. A generation experience, where personal backgrounds are not that necessary. That’s why “no infos, just music” is the winged word of Berlin-based Michael Knop, whose latest project “Distale” is about to develop from an insiders’ tip to a vital component of the scene.
Inspired by his first extraordinary nights at Germany’s most popular club Berghain in 2006/2007, Michael felt deeply connected to the clear and uncompromising sound. Kick drums like cannon beats, pumping experiences emphatically into one’s mind and a not too highly accelerated tempo are determining for the dirty Distale sound today. Timelessness and an inevitable perfect acoustic, sober and reduced to the essential, but often with a loophole to honest and hugging emotions.
“No info, just music”, right. But music is Distale’s info. Something that not only the labels 43records, Brood Audio, Wall Music and Kopfmusik internalized. Even the crowds on the dancefloors around always want to have the latest info. In other words: No techno tale without Distale.
