Berlin golden-child Sven Weisemann found his feet by sourcing inspiration from a range of genres that you may not usually associate with dance music. Classic, soundtracks, soul and jazz all fall under the belt of influence for the German youngster. A self-taught musician, Sven draws on his ability to turn the classic styles of his adored Chicago and Detroit techno into his own fresh work, developing a groove that has now gained him global respect. Playing shows all over the world, it was merely less than a week ago that Sven found himself at one of the biggest shows of his life. He shared the bill with KiNK (live) and Gerd Janson at Berghain’s Panorama Bar, which wasn’t his only recent appearance at the infamous club.
His latest EP, ‘Seperate Paths’, a four-track melodic masterpiece, was released on Destine Records, and he has also featured on other labels like Meanwhile, House Café Music, Apple Pips, Kann, a.r.t.less, Wandering, Liebe*Detail, Real Soon, Styrax Leaves, Essays, Freund Der Familie, Mojuba and more.
And now the German prodigy will finally return to Australia for the first time in over 4 years.
Despite his young age, Sven Weisemann has been DJing since 1997.
His musical infuences 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 labels such as 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, monikers of Sven Weisemann are Desolate, Jouem, Phidias.
