This Mix originally aired this past week on our NOICE! radio show. as is often the case, when we are totally blown away by a mix, we feel the world should be able to download it.
there is so much going on right now with Mathias's career. he has a forthcoming release on our Label (NOICE!) called "Nuevo Romance" which will have remixes by newcomer Sergey Trotzkopf and Superstar Seph (of cityfox, dumb unit, and Harry Klein fame).
also is the WARENKORB # 6 (on ware records)
buy it here:
Brandnew release: Warenkorb # 6, the new WARE label compilation with 4 tracks by Mathias Schaffhäuser was released in march. On his remix of „This Is For My Dutch Crowd” Mathias continues his excursion in minimal-dub-step, „Pumpe / Düse“ reflects his very old love to ravy Techno, and his remix for Chra’s „Såkenoivå“ is Schaffhäuser Minimal-Crossover at its best. Last but not least Chra remixes „Nice To Meet You“ and transforms the classic in an incredible and outstanding dancefloor radio play.
and some more happenings for 2012:
2012 started with the release of the UTOPIA EP on LEBENSFREUDE REC., a 2 tracker which shows the current style and variety of Mathias’ production perfectly. The title track is ravy and atmospheric at the same time and maybe one of the best peak time tracks Schaffhäuser ever made. And the flipside „Cancelation Nation“ combines Mathias’ love to breakbeats and dubstep with his minimal skills. A very unique and personal fusion. You can hear a live version of this track on his soundcloud profile with addional live vocals!
and some more info on Mathias:
Mathias Schaffhäuser’s around in the techno, house and minimal scene since 1994. Past releases of Mathias appeared on WIR Recordings, Lebensfreude, on Persistencebit Rec., Resopal Red, Force Inc., Multicolor, Definitive Records (house sub-label of Plus-8), Blaou Sounds, Frisbee Tracks and many others. In 1997 he started his own record label WARE which released 89 EPs until now (as of Febuary 2011).
Schaffhäuser’s motto at the turntables is: Purism sucks! The quality of the music is what’s important, not sheer functionality and a perfect mix. That is: at times his sets can be rather varied from Ware-style music, nice + smooth neo-house and funky minimal to thumping techno. His current favourites come from labels such as Prologue, Islands & Islets/Sthlm, Deep Data, Cynosure, Snork, 3rd Wave, Mobilée, Vakant, Circus Company - just to name a few.
2001 saw his club hit "Hey Little Girl", 2002 "Musik ohne Bass" entered the clubs (Force Inc.). In April 2005 he released his album "Coincidance" (Ware CD 14/Ware 52). The title track was remixed by Trentemöller and by Dapayk (Mo’s Ferry Productions, Dapayk & Padberg/Ware 54). December 2005 saw his 12" "Lost Vox" with a remix by Pan-Pot, in febuary 2006 the next remix 12" "more alternatives" was released with a mix by Audio Werner.
On the 11. of Febuary 2008 the jubilee EP "10 Jahre Ware" / "10 Years Of Ware" appeared on the scene with 2 epic tracks, one by Ziggy Kinder and the other by Mathias. Both tracks reflect the Ware history by using samples of the the label’s past 10 years + fit them together with new + unique ideas to 2 new exciting monster tunes.
In 2011 Mr. Schaffhäuser looks back on a veritable live tour which led him to Buenos Aires, Rostock, Singapore, Offenbach and Trieste. What combines these illustrous places, you may ask? Everywhere was absolutely super cool! Schaffhäuser’s set kept throwing audiences off the curve. I mean, who squeezes minimal sounds, spontaneous vocal performances, crude cover versions and melodica solos into a one-hour set, without constantly staring at a computer screen? But, from nothing nothing comes. Even before 1993 (does anyone remember this?) Schaffhäuser sang and played guitar in several bands, so he knows how to rock the house. And that works even better with a big enough stage and wireless microphones! Though another fine house track is never far, after all, Schaffhäuser wouldn’t neglect his traditional Ware style, no matter how much he rocks.
