LABELS: Desolat, VIVa Music, Snatch!, My Favourite Freaks Music
DJ, producer and label owner with groove in his blood. Also a family man with a great heart. He lives just outside Frankfurt, but is not a mainstream kind of person. The atmosphere and the vibe of his tracks are intended to carry this mood into the clubs, onto dancefloors or anywhere you hear it. He had achieved a lot in the last years. Maximum, possibly.
And that manifests his brilliancy. Modern techhouse, sharpened with swing, groove, and some typical „M.in humor“. Unlike many others he can successfully put basically any sound into his tracks. He pairs deep bass-drum with Afrobeat, Latin or popular swinging jazz. He has convinced some of the greatest in the industry of his genius and became a „big one“ himself.
Releases on renowned labels like OFF REC., DESOLAT, SOUVENIR, GET PHYSICAL, KD MUSIC, TRAPEZ LTD., ROBSOUL, PLAY IT DOWN, BAR 25, SYSTEMATIC RECORDING and OM RECORDS followed. He remixed Radio Slave, Marc Romboy and various other artists. He is constantly pushing and promoting his own labels, MY FAVOURITE FREAKS MUSIC and WEPLAYMINIMAL. His quote and credo: a track needs vibe. In addition, his new album is full of vibes.
M.in’s new album “Year Of The Ape” has been just released on July 01st!
