Hatzler knows the dancefloor intimately. The Hamburg-based DJ and producer starting out collecting records and producing his own cassette tape edits. He got his first break with André Winter as Motion Unit, releasing various records for Oliver Huntemann’s renowned Confused Recordings. Hatzler’s musical influences are vast, ranging from early electro-funk and ‘90s experimental techno via Warp and Detroit, through to the multifarious strains of house and techno of present today. All these influences are present in Hatzler’s own productions, which have been steadily mounting over the years. His trademark use of rhythmical chords permeate a rich catalogue of artist EPs for labels like Senso Sounds and Stil vor Talent. He’s also an in demand remixer, famed for reworking Oliver Koletzki’s “Iyéwaye” and Dubfire & Oliver Huntemann’s “Humano”, in addition to others for the likes of Set About and Suara. In 2016 Hatzler was nominated best techno artist in Beatport’s DJ-voted end of year polls. It’s a testament to his sway in the dance music community. As a DJ Hatzler brings his extensive knowledge and experience to the booth, delivering deep and excursive sessions that will keep you glued to the floor for the duration—be it at sunrise at an outdoor festival, or locked into the perpetual nighttime of clubland.
