LangenbergBoredom is a bad thing. And if you’re growing up in a German small town it quickly becomes your worst enemy – to fight it back properly on weekends, Langenberg began organizing his own dance parties at age 17. And what had started back then as wild style experiments quickly grew into a recognized party series. Simultaneously, he developed his now perfectly fine tuned DJ skills and catched the attention of the West-German in-crowd and various club owners.

Finally he accepted a residency at the legendary Hotel Shanghai in Essen – a decision that led his style to a whole new level: the witty and “rational” sound of Kompakt became the first major influence on his musical journey. After that, he delved into the roots of techno and house music – devouring all of the Detroit and Chicago history he could lay hands on.

Langenberg’s sets evolved into elaborate and crowd-lifting masterpieces built from pure warmth and percussive deepness – always peppered with surprising bits and pieces from his freestyle past running secret parties in run-down buildings.

His next musical steps just came naturally: Langenberg’s first output as a producer in 2007 marked the beginning of an ongoing string of remarkable releases on labels like Resopal Red, STHLM Audio and Drumpoet Community.

Now, to push things a little more forward, Langenberg teamed up with some of his good friends: while forming temporary producing alliance Ribn with Manuel Tur, the two of them and Dplay just launched Mild Pitch in 2009 as a platform to explore a more versatile take on electronic music.
