2006 in Berlin von Niconé und Philip Bader gegründet und ein paar Jahre später durch Sascha Braemer ergänzt, begeht Dantze im Herbst diesen Jahres sein 10-jähriges Jubiläum. Greifbare Cluberfahrung, groovende Baselines, erlesene Beats und eine Leidenschaft, die man im Herzen spürt – das ist Dantze. Die Essenz unserer Nächte im Mix mündet in den Tracks, die wir veröffentlichen und die diese besondere Energie zurück an die Leute geben.
Please Dantze, dirty!
Philip Bader was born in Berlin and fell in love with electronic music in 1998. He already gave his DJ-debut in 1999 at the old Tresor club. Just spinning records was not enough so he launched „Max und Moritz“ with his friends.
In the end it was just the next logical step for Philip Bader to start producing his own music. And now he is only con- centrating on dj-ing and producing. His production debut was a release with Perry Roden on Monika Kruse’s Label Electric Avenue, followed by successful releases on Kindisch, Saved, Moon Harbour , This and That etc. Philip’s productions are characterized by his deep minimalistic Berlin techno style and the really creative and smartly placed vocals - he uses his own voice quite a few times. His DJ sets are like his productions: consistently deep, playful and powerful.
The Berlin based DJ and Producer Stefan Mint is a rare commodity in the world of House and Tech House. Just like old vinyl discs in condition “mint”, fresh, new, irreproachable state. Certainly never been played, possibly even still sealed – this is the definiton. Stefan is acting in the underground scene for more than 10 years now. This is a remarkable time. And be sure the claim on his standard never loses priority. His values are not mainstream orientated. His productions are not preset handicapped. Time and time again Stefan decides to use individual sounddesign and each production grows up from the ground. Creating stories with long DJ sets is important to him. The good old DJ skills are his basis. His Motivation: Building a big energy with the dancefloor crowd from sunset to sunrise.
Once bitten by the techno bug, Mr. Mint moved to Berlin in 2011. In the meantime a lot happened. His productions are released on imprints such as CROSSFRONTIER AUDIO and of course DANTZE. Just like these labels Stefan's sound can be described as deep, progressive and playful. His name appears in line-ups of Berlin's sceneclubs like Watergate, Kater, Sisyphos or Ritter Butzke.
