The important concept behind Kaiserdisco is to make the people dance
Made up of Frederic Berger and Patrick Buck, German pair Kasierdisco have now been rocking clubs, remixing the acts that matter and putting their names in bold across festival marquees around the world for the best part of a decade. Years into their partnership, then, they continue to make indelible marks on the underground musical landscape.
Their name is synonymous with a no-nonsense, fad-free brand of electronic music that makes people dance as well as conveying real emotions, physicality and, of course, a subtle sense of fun. Recently they have moved away from their early tech house offerings into a more visceral techno style. It has taken them to landmark clubs and festivals like Space Ibiza, Awakenings, Panorama Bar in Berlin and Instytut in Warsaw, as well as seeing them collaborate with other artists. “The important concept behind Kaiserdisco is to make the people dance,” say the pair. “Our main goal to stimulate the people!” And that is just what they do, you only need to check their latest offering on Adam Beyer’s Drumcode for proof of that.
It all started for Kasierdisco with their debut long player ‘In No One’s Shadow’, which laid down a manifesto and showcased the duo’s ability to tilt dance floors minimally, tribally, forcefully and/or progressively in their favour. Since then they have continued “to be very careful with decisions” and still collaborate “almost telepathically” when in the studio or DJ booth. It is that which helps them stand out form the crowd.
Further releases like the Another Dimension LP, as well as remixes of Booka Shade, Nicole Moudaber, Extrawelt, and Christian Smith and many more essential 12”s on esteemed outlets like Tronic, Suara, Get Physical and being part of the Drumcode family for more than 6 years have helped really established them on the global scene. As such it was only natural the pair would launch their own KD Music label. Run with a simple but effective “we produce it, and if we like it, we release it” ethos, the label has picked up props from DJs and dancers all over the world and has now put out more than 50 EPs as well as spawning off shoot KD Raw.
Always evolving and experimenting with each new release or DJ set, this German pair is as vital now as it ever was: testament to that is the fact they promise a new live show and also more collabs are all scheduled for the next 12 months.
