Insect O. creates musically memories about his travelings using tones of analog synthesizers, sounds from his modular system, endless echoes and warm reverbs. The roots of his music are somewhere between dub and techno, inspired by artists like Basic Channel or Maurizio. His goal is to transform dub techno in an up-to-date audio frame, ranging from spheric and hypnotic to rough and driven.
Most of his music has been released on his own Etui Records imprint. With Melbourne’s Echo Inspectors he recorded Bourne Dub and Bribie Dub which has been released on Australian Primary [Colours] imprint. On his way from Bolivia to Chile he found the inspiration for his first full length: Atacama. It´s music for traveling. The album will be out in October 2018.
Insect O. is an old hand in Dresden’s electronic music scene. Enthusiastic about the radio show “electronics” on East German radiostation DT64 in the early nineties he started buying records and making music at the age of 14. In the late 90s he was co-promoter and resident dj of Dresden’s famous techno club Flugzeugwerft and started the label Etui Records in 1998. Nowadays he is member of DAVE festival board with focus on organising workshops about music production and music business.
