M.in  Biography

Hailing from Germany’s prolific Rhein-Main area, Frankfurt’s M.in gained his momentum as global player over the last 2-3 years. As producer, DJ and label head his modern house and techhouse-style clearly owes to the Frankfurt heritage, yet M.in never claimed that promotional tag. He’s sitting firmly in the driver’s seat when it comes to his very own style. You can easily dub his beats trademark, bowing to the craftsmanship M.in has developed and refined with his dozens of releases. His artist name playfully quotes the minimalism that ruled for long time in German electronics. In fact, M.ins tracks are far from minimal. The only minimal formular is his credo demanding “the groove to carry the whole track from the core”.

From there on, anything can happen! And M.in is known to churn out tracks that conquer hearts and souls with various ingredients: groove, swing, bite, humour and musicality. „Every track has to have a vibe first““, he says. Well, easy to sign that partition… yet hard to accomplish the task M.in so easily masters. M.in’s tracks flow organic and uplifting. With influences from Afrobeat, Latin or his beloved swinging jazz, teaming up with that straight draw of a mighty lowered kick drum and bass. M.in can pair any sound with his down to earth grooves, showcasing open mindedness, curiosity and the sheer lust to experiment with uncommon sounds. Early on, M.in’s “New Orleans“ EP w/ Bastian Schuster (OFF Rec. 004) spoke of his intensive flirt with jazzy textures. „Sing And Blow At The Same Time“ – for Loco Dice’s Desolat – followed that trail and became more than a secret summer hit, being played by Sven Väth a lot. A push with global repercussions for real… Only fair… for what unites his output is exactly what he claims: that certain vibe of a track, a vibe that draws you in, makes you move and groove and sets u in a distinct mood.

Just, what the top notch DJs of our world look for in a potent track for their set. No wonder, the likes of Luciano, Ricardo Villalobos, Richie Hawtin, Loco Dice or Sven Väth massaged their client’s souls and soles with beats and bass from Mister M.in! His discography remains to become bulky. From Desolat to Souvenir, Off Rec., Get Physical Music, Robsoul und many more. His humorous motto EP „Lord Teach Me House“, for Cologne’s traditional Trapez imprint, marked another highlight for M.in at the end of 2010. This year, he is set to raise the stakes. Whether with his own output or tracks of his musical family n friends on his own labels: Weplayminimal (digital) and Vinyl Label Komm Mit Musik. M.in’s open view on club music sees him investigate further into the jazzy field in 2011. Producing for Jesse Rose’s swinging Label Play It Down, or jamming in the studio with Lenny Kravitz’ saxophone player Harold Todd.

With Harold, M.in did an exclusive remix for Thomas Schumacher’s release „The Ooh“ (Get Physical Music). In the studio M.in also teams up with Jonas (as Mucky Pups / Saved Records, Snatch!) or Frankfurt’s techno legend Patrick Lindsey. With the latter one he remixed Radioslave and Marc Romboy, adding Systematic Recordings and OM Records to his immaculate discography. Whether it is more house or techno, whether M.in produces or rocks the worldwide clubs with Vinyl Only, his sound remains a „spiritual thing“. And that is indeed today’s currency for worthwhile club sounds. Thus, M.in’s playful and viby sounds sent him round the world lately Weekly gigs in Germany and across Europe got topped by his Brazil Tour 2010. In 2011 he will rewind that experience.

Also, he is working on his first artist album which will of course paint an even bigger picture of housemusic. The sampling days are more and more over and M.in is working on that album with live vocalists, live piano and sax player, percussionists and more. This will transcend his percussive and demanding grooves to another level. Tribal, jazzy, playful, weird or whatever, music with an “obsession for smiling faces”!
