First came “Roar,” a completely mangling and brutal track from the minimal days. Sounding as if a broken weed whacker had been thrown into the middle of the club, the snarling, bass-free corker got the attention of the entire worldwide underground.
Baumel never looked back.
He eventually became a huge player and resident at Trouw which, after Berghain, might have been #2 in the “world’s greatest clubs” listicle. (RIP) Around the world he continues to shake up clubs, with mixes like this intense, and dark masterpiece DJ set, recorded live at Burning Man.
It would be a tremendous waste of space to list all the labels he’s released with but think of your favorite modern dance music label: Yep. That one.
“Bäumel infuses his productions and dj sets with lots of energy and a sense of adventure, creating a sound that is satisfies the mind as well as the body.”
