Christian PrommerChristian Prommer has always taken a jazz approach to music: open-minded, progressive, chic and atmospheric. The Munich-based DJ, percussionist and producer first began experimenting with samplers and drum machines in the late 1980s. Trained by virtuoso piano players and master drummers, he has spent the last 20 years moving between organic and electronic, between techno modernism and Blue Note cool.

With his Drumlesson project, Christian has turned full circle, fusing his jazz roots with his love of dance music and electronica. Working with a team of expert live musicians, Drumlesson began in 2007 with an instrumental jazz version of the Derrick May’s Detroit techno anthem Strings of Life. It was followed in 2008 by the group’s debut album Drumlesson Vol.1, which included organic covers of electronic anthems by Kraftwerk, Patrick Pulsinger, Josh Wink and more.

Before launching Drumlesson, Christian worked with a wide range of artists including Munich techno icon DJ Hell, Berlin’s Jazzanova and Peter Kruder of Viennese studio legends Kruder and Dorfmeister. As a DJ and live player he has performed at many of the world’s most prestigious venues and festivals including Fabric and the World Wide Awards in London, The UK’s Big Chill Festival, Sonar in Barcelona, 10 Days Festival in Ghent, World Wide Festival in Singapore, Crossover Jazz Festival in Tokyo, North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam and the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland.

In 1995, Christian joined with fellow Munich DJ Roland Appel to form the highly praised drum’n’bass and tech-house duo Fauna Flash. They released two acclaimed albums, Fusion and Aquarius, plus a wide range of remixes including Underwolves, Abdullah Ibrahim and Minimal Compact.

Together with Freiburg’s DJ Rainer Trüby, Christian and Roland then formed the Trüby Trio. Blending Latin jazz, electronica and broken beats, the Trio remixed an impressive gallery of artists including Nitin Sawhney, Bebel Gilberto, Tiefschwarz, Louie Vega and Señor Coconut. They also released a landmark compilation for the !K7 label’s prestigious DJ-Kicks series in 2001, followed by their debut studio album Elevator Music in 2003.

Soon afterwards, Christian and Roland teamed up with Peter Kruder to form the studio project Voom:Voom, releasing their debut album Peng Peng on !K7 in 2006. Christian and Peter also worked together on the Minx album for Roberto Di Gioia’s band Marsmobil.

Roberto and Peter are now part of Christian’s family of musicians in the Drumlesson project. In 2010, the collective release Drumlesson Zwei, a new and equally bold selection of jazzy cover versions. The musical mix remains ambitiously broad, from Carl Craig to Laurent Garnier, Underground Resistance to Jean-Michel Jarre.

In 2011 Christian Prommer and Alex Barck (Jazzanova/Sonar Kollektiv) launched their own label Derwin Recordings and their new musical project Prommer & Barck.
