Gene Hoffmann has been a passionate and active part of the world techno fraternity since the mid 90’s. He is best known for his dynamic multichannel DJ sets that blend a broad range of techno that appeals to both the mind and feet. He's also noted by some for his oddball sense of humour and for his infectious enthusiasm for techno music in general.
Since 1997 Gene has given his all as an underground techno DJ and occasional promoter. He has shared the stage with almost every international techno heavyweight, and has appeared at countless festivals, underground parties and club nights, including the spiritual home of techno - Tresor. He regularly travels across Australia, Asia and Europe to make noise and drink as much beer as possible.
Gene is a passionate controllerist and music gear junkie, and has been since digital DJing was in its infancy. After learning his trade on turntables for the best part of a decade Gene progressed on to Final Scratch in 2004. The possibilities of digital control combined with a turntabilist’s ethos has helped Gene scape his sound and find his niche.
Gene has been a driving force behind techno brands including Billion Underground, Jesus Horse and Panic Stricken Bovine. He lives in the Australian bush outside of Melbourne and loves nothing more than mixing at home with his mates in his studio. He doesn't seek out weekly gigs anymore, but feels very privileged to be invited to play occasional good quality local, interstate and international techno events, and to share his music to the world techno community via podcast appearances and Soundcloud uploads.
Contrast. Objection. Antithesis. This is how you might start an attempt to describe the world. A seemingly chaos of shapes and thoughts that don't belong to each other. An overall image to be found in life and in music. But that's not Fiedel's view of the world. Where others make distinctions, he sees connections, where others find emptiness, he finds rooms full of opportunities.
Finding those harmonies, connections and contexts marks out his musical work. The synthesis of apparently opposing music, the interaction and the mix of styles and moods, without loosing the storyline, that makes out the characteristic Fiedel sound.
Born and raised in Brandenburg, he finds access to the music through various artists and styles in the mid 1980ies. He was influenced by artists of the old school hip hop like Mantronix and Egyptian Lover and the early works of Depeche Mode and Kraftwerk. A very important influence was Monika Dietls radio show at Radio 4U in West-Berlin. Her show aroused the fascination and the longing for musical freedom and diversity, that was not possible in former Eastern Germany. Those impressions gave him a first feeling, a first vision of what should become alive later on.
After the wall came down, the way was open to access a fresh scene, and with it came a whole spectrum of new and old music to discover. In the beginning of the 1990ies, he started Djing in public as a regular at the Monday events at Subversiv. Shortly after he began his collaboration with his befriended Errorsmith under the name of MMM. They released several productions and play live shows. Since 2000 he is resident at Ostgut and later on at Berghain. On the compilation "Fünf" he had his first solo release on the incorporated Ostgut Ton label. In 2012 he eventually founded his own label Fiedelone, to give his own productions a more personal base. In spring 2014 he developed a live set, which he premiered at Berghain.
You can say one thing about Fiedel: he is no techno or house stereotype pattern, that you can put randomly on a every evening or club. He is lead by his history, the history of the music and the feeling of the moment to build something new and to capture this very moment. Let it be the straight dark techno of today, banging acid of the 80ies or an electro funk record, Fiedel surprises. He undermines and overrides expectations and refrains to limit the music for any reason. He lets the music speak for itself, through himself.

People believe that in the fields of deep research that one is ready to drill to the core of a matter; of course there are also those like Freund der Familie that demonstrate how far you can go. The ability to probe from the surface is in this discipline a remarkable quality.
Behind the "Freund der Familie" (including the house and yard) is Klaus Rakete and the Mirko Hunger, who originally from the most varied genre patronage have drawn their inspiration. Overcome by the musical chemistry of their fellowship, the two decided with a hive-mind ethos to share the benefits with each other. Since 2007 the upkeep of the house and cultivation of the yard has happened at the same address (label & project); this is their priority.
Independent from the prefabricated sound-type, the duo studied both with the label marker and the production process the various methods of the power of deepness. The means for the sonic vividness come from a cosmos of euphoria, spirituality, half-light and melancholic positivity. The characteristic polymorph-concoctions are designed with a cornucopia of deconstructive and fringe elements as gestures of contemplation with a selection of endless echo-craters, massive delays, swinging bass, melodic outlines, tradition-aware creeping rhythms and low-pressure techno deepness.
Anything seems possible in this exploration of genuine music-for-the-heart for both body and soul. The listener/dancer dives into a reality of disembodied music made from organic ornaments, lead through an order of things without limit.

Composer / Musician / Producer / DJ
Despite his young age, Weisemann has been DJing since 1997. His musical influences ranges from Classic, Soundtracks, Soul and Jazz, Deep House and Dub to his beloved Detroit Techno and US House. As a producer, his music draws deeply on the legacy of Chicago and Detroit, yet somehow manages to end up sounding as fresh as a daisy - records such as 'Vibe' and 'Slices' are house music that is half atmosphere and half beats, and not afraid to take its sweet time to lull the floor with their charms.
A self-taught musician who plays piano, acoustic guitar and percussion, Weisemann also composes jazz and soundtracks - traditions which also inform his house records no doubt, many of which you can find on Meanwhile, House Café Music, Apple Pips, Kann, a.r.t.less, Wandering, Liebe*Detail, Real Soon, Styrax Leaves, Essays, Freund Der Familie, Fauxpas Musik, Echocord, Delsin, Telrae, Just Another Beat and especially Mojuba, where Weisemann's music slots together with friends Nick Solé and Oracy to form a distinct, and highly collectible, label sound.
Several pseudonyms are in circulation.
