German duo Piemont has proven itself to be an absolute production power- house over the last half decade. Made up of long-time
friends Frederic and Chris, the pair first decided to hook up and make music together back in 2007 and, since then, have gone on to establish
themselves as one of the foremost partnerships in techno and have been releasing Music on acclaimed labels like Area Remote, Exploited, Kraftek,
Terminal M, and Toolroom.
The pair actually grew up in ‘90s Hamburg listening to singer songwriters and various rock bands. Always soaking up the use of real instruments and
proper arrangements throughout their youths, that genuine musicianship is some- thing that now shines through in Piemont’s own contemporary
electronic pro- ductions. In terms of dance music it was French filter house acts and stadium sized ravers like Daft Punk and Chemical Brothers
respectively than first tur- ned them on to the possibilities of house and techno, whilst the more subtle intricacies of top labels like Playhouse and
Kompakt also continue to inspire and influence this pair.
In 2013, then, Piemont’s sound is best describe as organic techno. Their mu- sic always comes stuffed with a sly robo-funk and is built in many rich
layers. Their preference for ambient sounds, melodic lushness and abstract electro- nica makes every track different from the next - for evidence just
listen to their recent High Top EP for Glasgow Underground, or earlier classics like Carbo- nat and Back Smoker. Each release tells its own story and
often Piemont mu- sic is as suited to home listening as it is club dancing. The best proof of this has come in the form of their two excellent and
fully formed long players Strange World Beyond and Sand Hills.
As DJs, too, they have travelled far and wide. On top of playing regularly across Europe at places like Berlin‘s Watergate, Hive Club in Zurich and
Stu- dio 80 in Amsterdam, this pair has headlined many festivals and has also played across Russia and Japan, always joining the dots between house
and techno styles, going deep or raising their heads into more peak-time territory. As such, they are a very real voice in the global techno
conversation; have plenty more to say and keep many people listening intently.
