Peter Berg (DE)
Committed to introducing the sound of the first DJ heroes like DJ Hell and Lester Jones to his hometown Ingolstadt there was no journey too long for him and after frequent visits to the 100km distant Munich record store 'Optimal' it was time to take matters into his own hands. From 1997 people in and around Ingolstadt enjoyed Peter's DJing skills before he moved and settled in the city that is known as the cradle of techno - Berlin. Never forgetting his roots though he continued to run the monthly night 'Tanzabend' in his hometown, which was renowned over years to be 'strictly techno'. In 2009, after a creative break, Peter together with Paul Schulleri and Eiblonski formed the artist collective 'Spreekader' which was bid welcome enthusiastically by members of the underground techno scene. With their event series 'TANZ ODER GAR NICHT' they managed to play their way deep into the hearts of the Berlin crowd. On top of that Peter ran his own night 'Schallkorallen' in the historic club Tresor, during which never letting go of his commitment to support his home scene where he helped establish the club night 'Tek-nik' with his buddy Dypeerl. It was the close cooperation with Paul Schulleri though which prompted Peter to take his first steps in producing and eventually lead to his first release on Butane Records end of 2010. These days Peter can be seen at the decks throughout the Berlin club scene and beyond. His rock-solid, groovy tech-house with a tendency to ground shaking bass lines make him an authority on the dance floors but his intensive background in techno doesn't keep him from venturing into the territory of minimal house now and again - all the while never loosing feel of the crowd's mood. 2012 was the beginning of the now well established Thursday series Foreplay'' in the world famous club Tresor, which he runs and where electronic music lovers are in for a treat week after week.
